Week in the Life – a week long photo project intended to document a typical week and appreciate it for what it is. I have made the point of participating along with Ali Edwards and the Week in the Life Community for a few years and really enjoy the process.
A lot of the community started documenting their photos yesterday so you still have plenty of time to jump in! I chose to start last week as that was a more routine week than this week will be. So this week I get to pull it all together in a series of blog posts.
Pretty sure this was the day I took the least number of photos. Possibly because it’s a little harder to get the motivation and creativity flowing without the enthusiasm of doing the project with everyone else? Possibly because I spent a good part of the day at work and was concentrating on that instead of pulling out the camera. Possibly I was just tired.
First photo of the day was that picture of the alarm clock. Instagram caption read: Good morning Tuesday. First photo of the day for Week in the Life. At this point I had been awake more than an hour – typical. I try to tell myself to go back to sleep but it doesn’t work. Instead I end up laying there trying to enjoy the comfy bed, the quiet, and the time with the husband before he goes to work. Once he heads out then I pick up a book or the computer until Kaitlyn finishes showering.
After Kaitlyn heads upstairs I usually get up and get breakfast (most of the time that’s oatmeal with cranberries and almonds) and spend more time on the computer until it’s time to wake up Tyler.
found me at the office. This is still kind of new for me, having somewhere to go to “work” even if it’s only for a few hours a week. Lots and lots of time on the computer, part of which was spent putting together and sending out their first ever email newsletter.
Didn’t leave the office until 1:40 so it was a very quick, very late lunch and a quick change before heading to the gym (while Kaitlyn is at the pool, of course). This is my almost-daily view of the drive to the rec center. My car could probably get there all on its own at this point.
found everyone home, homework done, dinner finished. Grabbed a quick photo of Sam and the braces since I realized I hadn’t taken one and he had another orthodontist appointment the next day. Braces at 36. Better late than never, right?
Barely over half a dozen photos of the day today has me worried that I didn’t do “enough.”
Silly isn’t it? It’s my album, I shouldn’t worry.
Then I came up with the idea of adding in a few more journaling/word prompts for this day to fill it in. I want to add in a list of prompts using “_____ing.” Things like: reading, watching, listening to, eating, loving…
nightly down time with the kids. Typically this involves a couple of episodes of Star Wars (Next Generation – yes, Sam has gotten Kaitlyn hooked on that). Tyler and I usually have the tablet/laptop out as the show doesn’t hold our attention quite as well as it does for Kaitlyn and Sam. Added bonus tonight was a box of Smores Girl Scout cookies. Bambi obviously thinks she should have been given some too.
And that’s it for the day. I’ll be back again tomorrow with Wednesday’s Words and Photos.
