Long day, long entry

Today turned out to be a lot longer than expected. It started out with having to go to church early, because Athena's visiting teachers wanted to get their visiting teaching done. See, the Relief Society and the Elders' Quorum have a bet going on to see which organization can get more of their visiting/home teaching done, and this month (February) is the one that counts. We think that's why there's been a little extra motivation, but it would have been nice to not get up early today.

It was kind of funny when the visiting teaching was happening, too. See, the reason (according to the logic in my head) they couldn't just come over was that they wanted to visit both Athena and their other visiting taught at the same time, and probably also not end up driving all over town to different people's homes (the slackers). But the other girl they visit teach happens to be my visiting teacher (along with the bishop's wife), so when they all sat down together, she was the one asking everyone, "So how are you doing?" And later, she asked Athena, "Oh yeah, did you get that check you've been waiting for?" When Athena said no, she said, "Well if you need anything, call me!" We just think it's amusing that a fellow visiting taught was acting like a visiting teacher.

After we got home, we took a long time catching up on Twitter (Wil Wheaton's commentary on the USA/Canada hockey game was pretty funny), and then we were going to update LJ, but Oreo had taken over the bathroom, which needed to be used. So we had to see if we could distract Page long enough to let Oreo escape, but he showed no interest in leaving, so we ended up hanging out with kitties for about half an hour and then having dinner, and now we have finally updated Live Journal.

Today I'm thankful for having a good day at church, getting to take the leftover cinnamon rolls, finishing that puzzle, still having Baked! Ruffles (we were planning to eat them today, but the way things worked out, saving them for tomorrow turned into a better option), and still being able to get home after every single person in our ward left (though strangely, after Mom's ward got out, one of our former home teachers was spotted roaming the halls; Celeste said he had only just arrived).
