Just a day

Sometimes the day is over and, even though I felt like I was running all day, it doesn't feel like I accomplished anything.
Sometimes Tony asks "What did you do today" and I'm not sure how to answer.
Thought it might be interesting to record everything I do in a typical day.

6:15   Alarm goes - hit snooze.
6:24   Alarm goes again - get up even though I really want to hit snooze again.
