Ooof! Have we really descended that far?!

Prepare for some serious whining.
We're on a nine-day road trip, by far not our longest.  It began with a Stake Conference at the other end of the Mission.  This consists of three two-hour long meetings over a weekend, combining five to twelve congregations of the Church.  As usual, I spoke in all three, Paula in two.
The next morning, we held a Zone Conference for the missionaries in that same city, then hot-footed it across the Mission for another Zone Conference on Wednesday.
Then I got sick.  Too many hands shaken over too many days.  (See "viral particles" below).
I tried to get work done at the hotel, I really did.  Tomorrow we have another Stake Conference for which I need to prepare.  There are reports and letters to answer.
So what did we do?  What else do you do when you hit the bottom of the curve?
That's correct.  You watch cat videos on YouTube.  While the missionaries have rules against using the internet for anything other than letters and Church information, we, sadly, can watch cat videos.
After feebly chuckling for about half an hour, we looked at each other and cried, "What are we doing?!" and went to bed.
We hope that your lives have found greater meaning than ours at the moment.  On the other hand, you've just got see, "Why Cats Are Afraid of Cucumbers."  It's a classic.

I'm back! The cat face coming through the cardboard reminded me of the picture of Jack Nicholson in "The Shining". And I've been blog absent a long time. But I did see "Why Cats Are Afraid of Cucumbers." Hysterical!
