day in the life // april 2013

May 7, 2013

This is part of Ali Edwards’ monthly day in the life project. In 2013 I am documenting a day at the end of each month and including it as an insert in my Project Life album. This month was done on Tuesday, April 30. *** 4:30am – My alarm goes off. Meredith nurses for awhile and I hit snooze three times. 5:00am – Out of bed! I let the dogs out and tidy up in the kitchen. I hear Meredith wailing from down the hall so I go nurse her again but she is awake. This means I won’t be able to do my morning Bible study, so I go ahead and get us dressed, put on makeup, stuff some…

around here // staycation

April 15, 2013

So as much as I hate the word “staycation,” that is exactly what I had last week. Or I guess you could call it my own personal spring break. And it was awesome! I am not even upset about being back to the grind this week because I feel so accomplished and refreshed (although it’s as if Meredith knew I had to go back to work and chose to sleep horribly last night – but that’s what coffee is for). I took a week off for the specific purpose of being productive on crafts & personal projects, and that is exactly what I did. With my time off, I managed to: >Visit a wildlife refuge with the family >Deal with…

day in the life // march 2013

April 4, 2013

I have decided to participate along with Ali Edwards’ monthly day in the life project. I wasn’t prepared to start at the beginning of the year but I think I can pull it off once a month from here on out. It happens during the last week of the month, usually the last day, but since in March that day was Easter Sunday I chose to document Friday the 29th, which I had off work. So this is a fairly typical weekend-ish day for me. I’ll be including these photos as an insert in my Project Life as well as the form I used to journal on. 4:30am – My alarm went off as usual for a weekday, but since…

around here // blah

March 25, 2013

I am recovering from the major blahs. Last week started off with pinkeye followed up with a sore throat, neither of which got me out of work. I have also been plagued by recurrent, almost constant sores on my tongue and inside of my mouth for the past six months and last week they were¬†really¬†bothering me and were enough to make me cry. No idea why I am so susceptible to them but I hate it. Plus I’ve been having these random dizzy spells, possibly related to that time of the month although they are a recent development. So for most of last week I had little to no energy above and beyond what I needed to get through the…

around here // weekend

March 11, 2013

Really good weekend. I got the quilt fabric all prepared – trimmed, washed, dried, and ironed. Ready to cut! Spent several hours with my good friend Lauren on Saturday shopping. We walked around Highland Village and spent a gift card that Lauren gave Meredith and came home with an awesome new chair for her that we never would have sprung for otherwise. Meredith is obsessed with it and was super happy all day. Lately I started letting Meredith sit on my lap for dinner when she’s fussy just to make it through the evening, and unfortunately she now refuses to sit in her high chair. I should have seen that one coming. In truth I don’t mind too much but…
