6 a.m. Wake up. Notice there are two kids in my bed. And a husband.6:43 Leave for the office. Wave to the friendly walkers in the neighborhood.7 a.m. Arrive at the office. Prepare for staff meeting. Answer e-mails — including one telling me I misidentified an aerial shot of Utah County. Turns out there is a difference between Springville High School and Maple Mountain High School. Hard to tell from a helicopter.9 a.m Staff meeting. We discuss our plans for Utah Valley Magazine and BusinessQ. We also pass around pics of the fiance of a Ashley, a former employee. Facebook, sweet Facebook.
10:15 Leave the office to go home and grab my son for the Travis Hansen Basketball camp.10:35 Leave my neighborhood with a van full of basketball campers.10:50 Arrive at the Travis Hansen camp and look for my daughter, her friend and two cousins who are finishing the 9 a.m. session. Camp ends a bit late thanks to a great talk by Devin Durrant (note to self: write about him someday). Now we are cutting it close to be home in time for the next to-do.
11:10 Leave the camp in a hurry. Travis Hansen stops me and says, “Hey, you are famous! You do that awesome magazine!” I didn’t expect him (a somebody) to recognize me (practically a nobody). We chat. Now we’re even later, but it’s worth it to talk to Travis (note to self: good job writing about him and his wife a couple years ago).11:30 Get back home JUST in time for Hailey to get picked up for play practice at Hale Center Theater and just PAST time for me to jump on a conference call with Isagenix, a Phoenix-based company we’re featuring in the next issue of Prosper.11:45 Put the conference call on mute so I can tell Carson (age 6) not to worry. The dog will come back when he wants to. 12:05 Head to Kohler’s for dry ice. Carson knows a science experiment, and it must be done today. Apparently, I promised. Can this half day count as a full day?
