daily clock

I realized just a few moments ago that my day is punctuated by certain events that help me realize what time it is without needing a clock. Here's how a usual day pans out:
  • 6:30 a.m. Either Matt has gotten up, is getting up, or is moving around to get himself up.
  • 9:00 a.m. School starts at the elementary school a half block away. The plethora of cars and chattering kids makes this time very recognizable.
  • 10:00 a.m. Our neighbors take a bath or shower. Since we live in a duplex, I can hear distinctly the water in the pipes.
  • 12:30 p.m. I start to get hungry.
  • 3:00 p.m. School gets out. The same rush of cars and kids makes even more noise.
  • 3:30 p.m. My next-door-neighbor girls play outside.
  • 5:00 p.m. They go inside for dinner and it gets quiet.
  • 6:00 p.m. My husband comes home.
  • 9:30 p.m. I start feeling a bit tired--usually signaled by muddled reasoning.

Tricia!!! What are you doing grading? What are you doing eating donuts and feeding cats? And what are you doing in Springville?

I found your blog today through Jen and Josh's blog. So good to read the posts! I'm adding yours to my list of friends. I hope the weather is getting better in UT.

What a nice surprise to see a comment from you!! I didn't know you had a blog. We are linked to you now and we will continue to check on you guys often. I love the internet. I still think it was so cool that we were reunited through the MPA program. I loved you the moment I met you freshman year and I love you even more today!!

I'm not sure which is funnier- that Tricia's favorite thing is not Matt, or that Tricia is Matt's favorite "thing."
