15,000 Days Old

Today I am 15,000 days old. Happy birthday to me!

Of those 15000 days, I've spent approximately:

4000 days sleeping;
3121 days working for pay;
2000 days reading;
840 days in school;
833 days listening to audio sermons and books on tape;
625 days eating;
417 days cooking;
334 days writing and re-writing;
180 days walking in the woods, just looking;
129 days in church;
127 days bicycle riding;
125 days watching tv/movies;
108 days traveling to and from work;
90 days preparing lessons to teach;
70 days traveling in other countries;
63 days waiting at red lights;
57 days on the ocean;
55 days teaching/homework help;
52 days getting dressed;
43 days cleaning fish;
42 days brushing my teeth;
41 days playing soccer;
35 days reading the newspaper;
34 days jogging;
30 days hitch-hiking;
17 days backpacking;
6 days canoeing;
2 days talking on the phone;
2 days in airplanes and helicopters;
1 day watching sports.


Of course these are not all mutually exclusive; most of the audio book time was at work; cleaning fish was also mostly work, etc.

So, what have you all been doing?

Happy *belated* Birthday, Doug!

It's mind boggling to think of life in those terms; wow!

Thank you, Venus!

Rethabile, Thank you too. That should give me another year or two!

Rosa, what is mind boggling is that I should ever have lived to be so old!

Blessings to you all!
