Day 100: Whistle While You Work

Holy Crap!  It's been 100 days!

It's really amazing what one person can accomplish when they put their mind (and their body and their time) to it.  After listening to several talks in General Conference reference "spending our time wisely", I decided to spend my time this evening a little differently.  When I got home from work I started on dinner right away so I didn't lose "free" time later in the evening.  We ate and watched a rerun of 30 Rock.  I got up as soon as it was over and took Peter for a walk.  The air was cool and crisp and it felt WONDERFUL to be outside!  Anyway, as soon as I got home one of my new favorite shows, The Sing Off, was on.  (If you haven't seen this show, WATCH IT!  It's amazing!!)  It's two hours long, so to avoid getting a couch-butt, I got up during every commercial break and cleaned.  I got my bathroom clean, three loads of laundry done and returned some emails to boot!  Go me!
Now, as I reflect on my day I feel good about what I've done.  I'm especially grateful that I was able to do these things tonight so I don't have to worry about them on the weekend!

Ha ha:
As I mentioned above, I watched The Sing Off tonight.  It was two hours of singing bliss.  There is one group on there from BYU Provo called, Vocal Point.  They were amazing!  They did this rendition of Frank Sinatra's "The Way You Look Tonight".  I kid you not, I was giggling like a school girl and clapping my hands after every review by the judges.  I couldn't stop smiling and giggling.  I ran upstairs during the commercial break to clean the bathroom and Clinton asked why I was clapping and giggling.  I was gushing over the song, telling him how much I loved it.  He said, "Oh."  He must have thought that with all the giggling and hand clapping going on, I was watching something much more Ryan Reynolds, or Robert Pattinson-esque.  Swoon! (sigh)


  1. I watch the sing off too! You are totally right about Vocal Point last night! Loved it!! :)

  2. We LOVE that show! Drew and I both watch it like zombies. I'm going to have to use the commercial breaks to get things done. Vocal Point rocks! I hope they win!

  3. PS! Way to make 100 posts! You are my hero!

  4. I have got to do better at keeping up with your blog. Checking it once a month or so is just not often enough when you post something fun and amusing every day. I have so much to comment on, but alas I will limit it to a few. First of all, I LOVE Ryan Reynolds. That's why I chose to comment on this post :) And we LOVE Raising Hope. We watch it on Hulu so I make sure to not sit down to watch it until I have a solid block of time to focus on it. I can't remember what else I wanted to comment on. I better just keep up with your blog better. Once our office is open I will be able to spend my time more wisely on the things that I actually want to spend my time on. Anyway, miss you guys! I love reading your blog because it's like I can hang out with you guys while being so far away.
