September 9: P-day

I decided to talk about our average P-day and work day this email. So, in some areas, "P"-day, means play day! However, up here in Oroville, it is Preparation day.
Here is an average P-day, if we go to Omak. We wake up at 6:30 of course, and start our laundry immediately. If we do, we are able to finish it by the time studies are over. At 8 we do Personal Study, and at 9 we do an hour of companion study. That's all the study we do on P-day, and so after that, we have to wash the car, clean the apartment, and get ready to go to Omak. Then we drive the 45 miles to the closest Walmart, and do our shopping there. Then we write the family for 1.5 hours, on email, and use our other time to write real letters. So, between 1 hour of cleaning, 1.5 hours of driving, half an hour of shopping, and 1.5 hours of emailing, and a half hour of whatever delays come up that day, we SHOULD have about 3 hours of free time. I don't know where that goes, because it's not there when the day finishes at 6! That's when we start proselyting again.
For a regular day for Elder Cramer and I, we get up at 6:30, eat breakfast, shower, exercise, and get ready for the day. 8 is Personal Study, 9-11 Companion Study, 11 is Lunch (YES!), and then at noon is Language Study. We finally start proselyting at 1, until about 4 usually. We then have dinner, and then at 5-9 we are proselyting again. 8-9 used to be easy to get appointments, but now it's getting dark at that time, and we often times, have to try a few places before we get a lesson or whatever. Often times we will be doing service around 1pm-4, but if we aren't, those hours can be slow as well. Overall, we usually teach 2, or 3 lessons a day. Then at 9 we do Daily Planning for the next day, then at about 9:45, we get ready for bed, and we are in bed at 10:30.

And then we start all over again.
Oh the busy, but fulfilling day of a Missionary! There are many hardships, but I love it. :) I think that's all I've got for this week, please please please ask me questions, so I know what to say in these emails! Les quiero!
