An 18-Hour Day

by | Feb 5, 2009 | schedule

I knew when I woke up yesterday morning that it was going to be a packed day. I always try to make the most of each day, and somedays are just packed full…like yesterday! I thought I’d jot down everything I did yesterday as a post…looking over it now, it gives me a slight headache. My mom was a wise woman. She would say to me every now and then, “Julie Ann, you are burning the candle at both ends!” If she would have been here yesterday, I’m sure she would have said the same thing. πŸ™‚

Here are just the highlights from yesterday:
