December 365

Boy have times changed.

I’ve been sitting here in my comfy chair for far too long, happily engrossed in my final pages of last years’ 365 album. There was a time, not too long ago, when that would not, could not, have happened. Today, Dave was at the gym, Isobel was at a friend’s house, and Meredith was happily working away in the kitchen with Ally on a science project. (There were knives and hot glue but I left them to it – aren’t you proud of me?)

And now, Dave is sitting next to me reading a book.

It is positively peaceful. I never thought this day would come. Back when the girls were little, it was a constant cycle of feeding, playing, soothing, helping, changing, pacifying and entertaining. Even the smallest task was monumental and required a great deal of thought and planning. There are certain things I miss about those days. To a certain degree, I miss being needed. I miss the playing and the interaction. But it’s all good. Life moves forward.

And on that philosophical note, I am officially done my P365 for 2010. I can’t believe I made it another year. There were times when I was very far behind. There were times when I was short photos and there were even times when I just didn’t want to do it anymore. But I am so glad I did.

Here they are:

I’ll be doing it again for 2011 with a slightly different format, but I’ll post more on that later. 
Thanks for looking.

November P365

Do you ever feel like life is just flying by, but when you try to figure out what you've been doing, you can't really put your finger on it?

Well, that's what's going on with me. I feel like I'm busy, busy, busy but I'm not 100% sure what I'm busy with.

Here are my November pages. I'm working on the December ones but I'm 5 photos short so, I need to figure those out before I can complete them.

Thanks for looking and have wonderful day!!!

Well, it’s a New Year and time for a new face on this blog.

Happy New Year to all of you. I hope 2011 brings you nothing that you can’t handle.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted. Things have been busy around here. I always find that period from September to December to be the busiest time of my year. We’ve got back to school, birthdays and of course Christmas and all the busy-ness that comes along with it.

I’m hoping to get my November 365 pages completed shortly and up on here plus some Christmas and New Year’s photos too.

So, check back when you have the chance!! I’ve been missing for a while but I’m optimistic that I’m back!!!
