So this is what happens when you get a full nights rest...

Have you ever just had one of those amazing days where you accomplished everything on your lengthy "to do" and then some? I must admit, it rarely happens to me so this feeling of pure joy is quite rare for me. To be honest, I think it has a lot to do with the fact I actually slept for a full 7 hours last night (which is a good deal more as far as sleep goes than the normal 5 hours I get most nights). I guess I will go ahead and just share a little of what I actually accomplished today.

  • 7:30 am- woke up in Provo and ate breakfast (normally I wake up at 4:45 and teach early morning seminary, but today I had the day off)
  • 8:30 am- arrived at Marie's house (in Salt Lake) where I babysit her 4 year old, 2 year old, and the 4 month old twins (while the children were napping I even emailed my sister Whitney who's still on her mission and who has her Preparation Day tomorrow)
  • 1:30 pm- I arrived home and cooked a pot of soup that will hopefully last me the rest of the week
  • 2:00 pm- wrote the 2nd essay needed for my graduate school application which is due at the end of the month
  • 3:30 pm- start my letter of intention which is also part of my grad school application
  • 4:00 pm- taught violin lesson (in Riverton)
  • 4:45 pm- picked up my computer (from Sandy) It crashed over break and thank goodness my uncle was able to help me repair it
  • 5:15 pm- did my reading assignments for my Institute class
  • 6:30 pm- arrived at my Institute class (which is the 2nd pre-service class for future seminary teachers in case you're curious)
  • 8:00 pm- arrive at my aunt's house to babysit my little cousins while they go to the U of U basketball game
  • 8:30 pm- write out my seminary lesson plans for the next 2 days
  • 9:00 pm- complete all grading of my seminary students from this last term
  • 9:30 pm- complete the "additional information and work experience" portion of my graduate app
  • 10:00 pm- have time left over that I don't know what to do with so I decide to blog about it!
Seriously though, this NEVER happens to me! All I had hoped to accomplish today was write the 2nd essay needed for my application. Everything else up on that list was a total bonus! (which I can now proudly cross off my "to do" lists from other days :) And somewhere in all of that I even had time to fit in an episode of Hannah Montana. I guess the point of this story is... sleep is good! The end!
