Hmmm, I'm not sure if the following comments belong in a blog or not. Oh well, here they are anyway.
I think I picked up a cold while in California last weekend. Sadie wasn't feeling 100 percent and I may have contracted it from her. I'm trying to stay close to home so I don't have the same experience as last time.
This past week I have been helping the mission office just about every day (working around my service in the Humanitarian Service Room) with a new internet-based referral program and had planned to go out there this morning to make sure the secretary was doing everything correctly. Last night was not a good night so this morning I decided to not go and stayed in bed. Then around 9:00 a.m. I remembered that I had told an Eagle Scout candidate that I would meet him at 10:00 at the mission office to review and sign his Eagle project workbook. Since I didn't have the kid's phone number, I showered and headed out. No sooner had I arrived than the kid's mother called and said he wouldn't be able to get there until about 11:30! Argggh. I told her that she would have to bring him by the house since I wasn't going to hang around and pass along my cold to everyone else in the office. They did arrive around 11:45 and I reviewed and signed the workbook.
Salt Lake is using our mission as a "beta" site for the new referral system so I have been giving them tons of feedback about bugs and needed improvements. Eventually the system will be used around the world.
So, I am back home and trying to stay in bed. I was not terribly thrilled to get the cold because tonight is our annual Father/Sons campout in Lovell Canyon and I was looking forward to going.
Sherrie is headed to Toquerville tomorrow morning to spend some time with her mom and then they are going to go up to Provo for a few days.
I plan on doing absolutely nothing...except for the inevitable coughing, sneezing, headaches, and all other things thereto associated. :)
Well, it is lunch time and Sherrie is bringing me a Big Mac.
