February tends to be a tough month if you're a teacher. OR, in my case, if you're married to a teacher. I don't know what it is (although Zach has a number of theories). So I'm going to try to embrace February and jump on the "Photo A Day" bandwagon. I'm following my friend Jen's suggestion and using this outline from fat mum slim:
Let me know if you're going to play along. I'm excited to do a better job at keeping up with this old blog and pull out the camera every day. And you can be sure I'm going to take advantage of Picnik closing down (i.e. expect pictures that have been fiddled with).
So let's begin....
1. Your view today:
This picture hurts my brain.
I took this right after telling the boys to get ready to go to the library. Which means I said, "Ok, it's time to go! Please put your shoes on!" And then repeated that at least 15 times. And mostly likely tossed in a, "Alright, we'll see you later Max!" at some point. Which then led to a, "I don't like you anymore Mama!" Oh, I LOVE going places with kids.
I really don't enjoy leaving the house looking like this. Because then when you come home (after going through the above scenario once again at the library), it's like a big, messy punch in the face. "Oh yeah, the house is STILL a disaster! Weeeee!" Oh well. I usually make it a point clean most everything up before Zach comes home so he doesn't get the messy punch in the face (not that he cares, but it makes me feel like a good wife). I always think of the sign I've seen floating around Pinterest that says, "Please excuse the mess. We live here." It's so true. Maybe I need to do a follow-up picture tonight after the boys go to bed and the house is spotless..... We'll see...
Happy February everyone!
