First, since we are senior couple missionaries we are not under the same rules as the younger missionaries. We are able to e-mail, Skype and keep in touch with others regularly (like daily).

If you are reading this, we realize that there is a reason you want to keep in touch also and we are excited to have you as part of our family! We have loved hearing from you and in many ways it keeps us going. Please continue to read and keep in touch (we gladly accept e-mail!).
Second, we do have a schedule most of the week but it is flexible. Also on Mondays we have what we call preparation day or p-day. On that day we try to get things done like getting major letter writing done, go shopping, do some cleaning of the apartment, and getting out and seeing the city or doing some sort of activity (if the weather ever clears up!).
Third, we have started exercising daily--stretching and strength exercises from a book and rubber exercise band we were given-- and walking. Actually the walking has been a little difficult lately because of the bad weather but we have hopes for the spring to come!
