Today I sit here and think about pumpkin spice, blankets, football games, soon to be hockey time, and a pool that is coming down. But I am so thankful that I have documented the entire year we have had with my 365. Now where has the time gone? How can school be starting in just two days? But it is, and that means its time to enjoy another year with so many more memories.
Summer is almost gone, and that means that school is about to start. Fall is just around the corner which makes me happy and sad. Happy for the weather, sad because summer is going to be over, happy for routine, and happy for hockey. But sad for lack of time. My 365 has been amazing this year, I have spent some time focusing on me and what I want with my photography. The narrative society has been amazing, the people that I have met have been awesome. And its pushing me and making me grow that much more!
Spring is gone, summer is here, life is super crazy, but here I am still plugging away at my 365. I am not a poet for sure I can't believe that we are half way through July already. I feel like it should still be March. Oh well. I have been super busy lately with the kids, life and The Narrative Society. I signed up last quarter, struggled just a little because nothing was there to keep me accountable. Well they changed it this quarter and I have to say its been awesome! And I took a leap into underwater photography. Its been awesome, at first I was nervous to put my good camera underwater, but then after struggling with my backup camera I said I can't do this and put my good one underwater. So now there are lots and lots of pool photos.
Well I always say I am going to do something, and then there are those weeks when my little humans need me, or when my husband is traveling for work, and then I slide on my personal goals. But that doesn't mean I stop, I just need time to get things posted. So today you will get weeks 17-21. Yes I know sad, but like I said those little humans come first.
Week 17 -- My biggest Fears
Well this one is something that I never thought it was an issue, I call myself pretty independent, but really I am not. My biggest fear is having to parent alone. My husband travels for work, and I always fear the worst, I worry like no other when he is traveling because I fear the worst and I know that I need him as my team mate, my partner, and as my parenting partner. We are a team and without him I would fail. Now I know things happen, God is the one in control but I still worry because I can.
Week 18 --My embarrassing stories
Oh where to start? They all seam to roll into stories, and I honestly couldn't for the life of me think of an embarrassing story. I know I do dumb things, I know I don't think, but maybe I can't think of one because they all roll together.
Week 19 -- My OCD habits
My OCD habits come out like no other after I have been stressed out, or when things are not going like plan. I have a plan, and I have to follow it. I have things completely color coded when it comes to our calendars. One big habit is that all the plastic containers in the kitchen have to be in the right spot. They can't stack, they have their own piles. Another OCD habit is the kitchen counter. I can not have crumbs on the counter it sends me into next week for sure. But if you look at my car the dust is horrible, the gravel inside is gross, and the van needs to be washed at all times. But those things don't bother me.
Week 20 -- My favorite movies
Disney all the way! I am by far a Disney addict. Little Mermaid is my fav for sure. Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, or Toy story are not far behind.
When it comes to non cartoons, I love Sweet Home Alabama -just love a good love story! Longest Ride was another good movie. I am a chick flick junkie, but I have to be in the mood because otherwise I fall asleep.
Week 21 --If I could eat ONE last meal.
Oh man.....I would probably say Plaza in Madelia MN. Chicken Chimichanga is my favorite there! Beans and Rice on the side with some quad and sour cream. MMMM
I am a mother, wife, daughter, sister, auntie, god-mother, friend, Christian, donkey loving, Director of Finance and HR, and photographer with a love for my clients and my camera!
