I spent my day like this. After I dropped Curly at school, I stopped by to take care of a friend's dog while she is on vacation. Then I hurried home to help the Dog Walker finish his Humanities assignment. Unfortunately, I zonked out at 3:00 AM, but he was up until 5:00 AM working on it. At 11:00 he still needed a little more sleep, so I did some long overdue paperwork, paid bills, stuff like that until it was time to pick up Curly at noon.
The Dog Walker and I immediately went downtown for his appointment with the Missionary Department. He is hoping to serve a mission, but the counselor told us it is extremely unlikely that he will be sent out like Teach. He can serve his mission right here in town and live at home. He was quite relieved although he is the one pushing for a foreign mission. We had this conversation the other day:
|Not getting any sleep stinks! Cute piggy nose!|
Me: Japanese is a hard language, why don't we try Spanish?
Dog Walker: Mom. They don't speak Spanish in Japan.
So it appears that Church Service it will be. That means he might work on Temple Square or in the Church History Library. He might work at the Bishop's Storehouse, handing out food to those with financial needs. It could be anything like that! I'll keep you posted.
We got home from that meeting at 4:40, just in time to take Scout to softball practice. While she was at practice, I st
opped by the cookie manager's house and turned in all my paperwork. Yay! Cookie
s are over for another year. Then I ran into the grocery store to grab a couple of things. It took longer than I planned and I had to race back to the house, quickly unload, and head back to the park to pick up Scout.
I dropped her in front of the house and then it was off to Tupperware training. I did win three pretty major prizes, so that was fun. When I got home, I grabbed a bite to eat (thank goodness I assigned Prima Donna to make dinner) and moved to the computer to help Dog Walker finish his assignment. He is still working on homework now and it's nearly 1:00 AM. I worry about his sleep schedule even more than mine. He has an 8:00 class and he is finished at the school at 2:00. Then he comes home, walks a couple of dogs, does homework, and gets ready to work the nigh shift. He gets off at 6:00 AM. That makes a long day for him.
But at least he has youth on his side. Me? I'm just getting old.
