Personal Goals

I return to work next week and I’m sure this blog will return to it’s lazy spontaneous posting.  Until then, where I go so goes the camera. That didn’t come out nearly as eloquent as I had thought. Yesterday, I set a personal challenge for myself: to stay in my pajamas all day. I’m happy to report that I outlasted all three of my children staying in my pink PJ’s until 3:00 p.m.  Can’t quite decide if I should be proud or embarrassed.  Either way, it’s off my Christmas bucket list.

 

Speaking of lists– the holidays are a great hidden secret. Unlike summertime when folks take their time off from work to travel– the holidays we tend to stay home.  Do you know how much you can accomplish when you stay home for two weeks?  It’s been wonderful! I’ve hit items on my to-do list that have been sitting there since 2009.  Last night, I found myself filling in Rayne’s weight in his baby book and putting Britton’s 11 birthday invitations in chronological order for hers.  When would I ever find time to do this otherwise?

I spent no more than 25 minutes printing my favorite 2014 photos to Walgreens, then another 20 minutes putting them into a pretty photo album I found on Amazon prime.  It was then that I realized that I had never bothered to print photos from 2013- they’re waiting for me at Walgreens now I suspect.

 

I have to savor it while it lasts, because I’m no fool and no by next week at this time I will be back to my run-around, forget things, feeding kids at Target self again.

The little guy has been asking to see Meme lately, so Meme we saw.

No matter how many cameras we give her, Meme much prefers her snap and wind 35 mm film. I’m not sure where she can even develop her film anymore….

 

 

She was happy to see us arrive….

He’s always had a thing for his Meme, despite their 85 year age difference….

However I can’t help but wonder if she was also happy to see us leave.

He asked her, no less than forty-two times, “Meme, what’s this?”  Takes her a coaster, “Meme, what’s this?”  Walks over with her remote control, “Meme….”

You can’t see it here, but he’s asking her questions. Lots of questions.

Note her hand snatching her belongings from his sweet little sticky hands.  This one makes me laugh. Go Meme!
