Today was the first time in a REALLY long time that I had absolutely nothing on my calendar. No special occasion lunches or meetings just a blank calendar. So I decided to fill it up with things I needed to do as an experiment.

Here is what it looked like:
8:30 - 9:00 Check emails and voicemails
9:00 - 10:30 Work on curriculum
10:30 - 11:00 Check emails and voicemails
11:00 - 12:00 Settle my credit card statement
12:00 - 1:00 Eat lunch
1:00 - 1:30 Check emails and voicemails
1:30 - 2:30 Work on new leader applications
2:30 - 3:00 Walk down to Katie's office and go over a few things
3:00 - 4:30 Write birthday cards, letters to my small group, and letter to my camp girls
4:30 - 5:00 Check emails and voicemails
5:00 Go Home!




Here is what it really looked like:
8:45 - 9:00 Check emails at home
9:30 Come to work
9:45 Check emails again and read blogs
10:00 - 11:30 Work on curriculum - don't finish
11:30 - 12:00 Get pulled into a meeting about Ensenada 2008
12:00 - 1:30 Eat lunch at Chipotle and listen to an entire hour of conversation about Madden 08
1:30 - 1:45 Talk with a new volunteer
1:45 - 3:45 Talk with Brian Hurst about literature and blind dates in my office...while making several decisions
3:45 - 4:30 Talk to Jana in her office about...probably 11 different topics
4:30 - 5:00 Check emails...look over my schedule for tomorrow...look at my schedule that I didn't follow today
5:00 - 5:15 Talk to Katie in her office
5:15 - 5:30 Talk to Jamie...Jason...Zack
5:30 - 6:20 Finish curriculum

Oh well...the next time I have a free day I will try it again!

I had no idea...

You learn something new everyday...
Did you know that Grenadine is made of pomegranate juice?
Well I had no idea until Alton Brown told me tonight.

I love pomegranates...even better reason to have a cherry diet coke at Ruby's!

If you don't know...now you know.

I don't know if you know but I am a horrible housekeeper. My floors are dirty...I hate doing bathrooms...and my idea of a deep clean is using Clorox Bleach Wipes.

BUT I am a freakin' pro at the Ten Minute Tidy. If at anytime you call me and let me know you are coming over...no matter how much stuff is lying around my house...I can clean it up in about ten minutes. I believe the key to the Ten Minute Tidy is that everything in my house has a place where it lives, and so therefore as soon as I pick it up I know where it goes.

And if you don't know...now you know.

I have said it before and I will say it again.
Free wireless internet at Tully's and there is hardly anybody there.

However, right now I am posting this from Corner Bakery...that also has free wireless internet, and much better food an coffee.

Is it hot in here...or is it just me?

Maybe it is just me, but summer is about a month too long from being over. Summer is definitely not my favorite season. I am much more an autumn girl.

This heat is killing me. It is making everything more difficult to do.
Things that are miserable in the heat:
Putting on make-up, getting dressed, blow drying my hair, cooking, cleaning, driving, sleeping...I'm Hot!

This is my confession...

Jonathan and I just ate KFC for dinner.
I haven't eaten KFC in eight years.

Hey Boo Boo


Dear Sidekick 3,
I love you. I look at you online and dream about the day that I will own you. My husband said when the time is right I can get you. I hope that is sometime soon!
Can't wait to hold you in my hot little hand!
