hi how could I say:

I know I'm skipping the whole part of my day?

I mean I'm telling about my day but just bits of it not the whole day

thanks

Another possibility: pasar por alto

Paso por alto la parte mayor del día, para destacar estos detalles siguientes.

Oops, I just saw that Quentin already suggested that.

You might try some spanish words that suggest "highlighting" or just hitting the importantant parts.
destacar or acentuar los partes más importantes

skip over=omitir or pasar por alto as used here is not what you want, but perhaps they could be used creatively to express your idea. Lots of phrasals at the bottom of page that may give you some suggestions.

Brenda, maybe I'm not understanding what you want to say, but "whole part" is an oxymoron or a contradiction. How about this:

I'm skipping the biggest part of the day.
I'm skipping over most of the day.

Please help us understand what you mean better. Then you can get some help translating it into Spanish.
