Big problem: I had volunteered to clean the temple. In my mind I went through all the reasons I shouldn't go do it.
- That place is clean enough!
- There will be other people there to help.
- I'm sick.
- I need sleep.
- This is just a make work project. Do they really need to clean that place every single day?!
- Jill has swimming tomorrow morning
- I really just want to go to bed.
- I don't know what I'm supposed to wear.
- I just don't want to do it!
In the end though, I decided maybe I should just go and do my duty....because I said I would.
I arrived at 9:15. They give you white scrubs to put on. I went and sat in the chapel with everyone else and waited and grumbled to myself that we should just get at it. Finally President Stonehocker came along and gave us a spiritual message (a spiritual message for cleaning the temple?!) and we got to work. I was assigned to sweep and mop bathroom floors (there are a lot of bathrooms in that place!) I realised about 45 minutes into things that I wasn't sniffing anymore. No need to blow my nose anymore.
This morning it's the same thing. I still feel like my sinuses are going a little crazy - but I don't have a terribly runny nose like I had with a vengeance Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday.
It's seriously a temple miracle. I'm one who only gets better with lots of sleep. Last night I was there until 11:15 and got home at 11:30. It always takes me a little time to unwind and so I didn't really get to sleep until after midnight. I shouldn't feel this good today! I'm sure grateful that I do though.
