Ok, so better late than never. I finally got around to closing out my week by adding Friday’s journaling and pictures to my little daybook. If I would have just taken pictures last week with the intent to put it in a book sometime in the future, my intentions would have been good, but I would have failed at putting it together. This week has brought much more for me to do than I thought possible and since I am taking five classes (Senior this year! Woot woot!), I am swamped with homework. So, I am glad that I kept up with it daily, in real time, so I have a little snippet of my life recorded an in a book rather than in a project box waiting for something to be done with it.
This picture shows our Friday morning. My kids are so happy in the morning. My daughter is on the left giggling and punching a balloon in the area…I am never that happy in the morning. I have to drink at least 3 cups of coffee before I even
smile smirk. On the right, it shows that we forgot to do a coloring project for homework, so they are drawing and put stickers on their “ME” bags for school…that were due THAT day. Under that shows me paying the bills and budgeting for the next two weeks. Always fun.
After that, I did a LOT of homework until it was time to leave at about 2:00 to go pick up my kids…from two different schools….fifteen miles apart. The picture on the left shows me doing homework while waiting in the car rider line. The pics on the right are of my daughter, whose teacher surprised all the kids with an August and September birthday with a party, balloons and gifts. It was really sweet. Below that we are swinging through Chick-Fil-A for dinner since I didn’t have time to cook.
I was originally supposed to go out of town to Shreveport for a convention, but it cancelled, so I stayed home to do my math homework. My husband brought our kids to his mother’s house because we thought we were leaving to go out of town. She was willing to keep them anyway so we could work on our 100 year old house. We are trying to finish up sanding, staining and polyurethaning the floors and some other small remodeling things. The pictures on the right are from my mother in law. She gave the kids some clothes and they were trying them on and posing. I got to see what they were doing while I finished my mountain of homework. My husband came home and we watched Netflix for a while. We never get the remote…EVER. So, we watched some of our nerdy movies we liked..UNINTERRUPTED!
And that’s a wrap!
I had a few more pages leftover in the book, so I did a “Reflections of the week” page journalling about further thoughts and things I may have missed talking about.
I decided to toss in a couple pictures from Saturday showing the floor completely refinished and my LOVELY outfit there.
This picture got lost in the shuffle, so I added it and the date. And, lastly, I talked about 9-11-01, where I was at 12 years ago and how I felt at the time since I do not believe I have recorded those thoughts anywhere and it was appropriate since were remembering 9/11 this week.
Finishing the 9/11 journalling and then signing off on the project.
DONE! Thanks for looking! A big thank you to Ali Edwards for the inspiration and to all the ladies who have the blogs that I visited last week. I enjoyed reading about your week and hope you had fun putting this little project together.
