Party Day

We just finished our 12 hour day at the Barlow.  We worked all morning handling the every day problems and working on our lessons for next week. Then in the afternoon we had a little get together to tell Ashley in Public Affairs good-bye.  She is leaving to go back to school.  They are losing all their people right now and they have a hiring freeze so they are not being replaced.  We had a fun experience with Ashley.  We get a call one night to come over to the Barlow because Ashley has a mouse in her garbage.  We went over and here she is standing on a chair having a fit screaming.  Elder Anthony went in but the mouse was gone.  We helped her to feel safe and got her purse that was sitting next to the garbage and went through it to make sure there was no mouse in it.  We set a trap after she left and we caught that little guy.  I helped get things cut up and out for the reception we had for her and then I helped clean up.


I went from there down stairs to help set up for an event we had tonight with the Hinckley Institute from the University of Utah and our interns from BYU.  I took care of ordering pizza and getting the salads put together and tables set up.  We helped welcome and serve and cleaned up after that event.  We had 65 people in attendance.  So it was successful.

We came back to the condo 12 hours since we left.  We are tired tonight.

  3. It is really difficult for me to manage such kind of get together but truly you did amazing work. How you had find out such a nice space? Actually I had booked one of most affordable venues last year for my party but it was really difficult for me to find out a nice venue.
