Usual Day

We were up at 5:40 this morning so we could get to the Barlow by 6:15.  We had a group coming in to use the Barlow this morning.  They were feeding about 90 people before they went and met with individuals that could help them understand what they needed to do to work in DC.The group is called Beyond BYU.  We had about 6 of our old interns come in for the event.  It was fun to see them and visit with them.

We helped them get the food ready to serve.  It was great not to be responsible for the food. 

We had a unusual day.  Scott wanted to get the microwaves purchased and the order closed today.  So we grabbed the bus and went to Sears Appliance and Best Buy. They didn't have anything we were interested in.  So we decided to get in the car and check Costco, Home Depot, and Lowes.  We still didn't find what we were looking for.  We got home after 2:00.  I was determined to get this job off of our plate and not have it take anymore of our time.  So we finally found two on Amazon.  I was hoping to get a nicer one for the kitchen we use.  The down stair kitchen is used for getting things out for hosting.

This is the one we got. It was 4 when we finished getting the information and receipts to BYU and we really hungry and tired.  We headed home to get the laundry done and dinner.  We had to meet people at the Barlow to pick up their luggage and and then we had to go back over again tonight so the people who served breakfast could get their milk and cookies for another event tonight up at the monuments.

One of our past interns gave me this plant.  It is Jasmine. In the morning when the sun hits it you can watch it grow.  

Wednesday we had to go to the post office.  This is the closest one to us .  It is in Georgetown.  While we were there the postman told us that it was the oldest continuous running post office in the U.S. It was built in 1852.
