I hadn’t shot a maternity session in a while so I was pretty excited for this one. I made sure I had a supply of all the normal things seen in them.
I would have loved to have kept the warm weather we had earlier in the week so we could venture outside, but we just made do with the warm, toasty studio.
So much was going on today and I had kids going in different directions and people stopping by to say hi, so not much was accomplished workwise.
So when I found myself with an hour and a half to kill before picking up my son, the most obvious place for me to spend that time was the book store. I beloved I looked through every title and didn’t find one that stood out to me….so I left empty handed. That’s OK though….I still have a stack of unread books on my shelf.
My eight year old is definitely learning from my neurosis. On his Christmas list he posted that he wanted a package of Sharpies. When I asked him if it was just markers he was asking for, or was he specifically wanting the Sharpie brand, he stated “Well I’d really prefer Sharpies….”.
So Sharpies it was! Forward 2 weeks later and he is still keeping them in the package….and low and behold, he even keeps them in color order (mostly)! Ah, a kid after my own heart!
Bought my first supply today for Valentines Day. I always get these cute ideas, but getting my boys to go along with them is a whole different story. But, I’ve SWEET talked my 8 year old into submission so I need to act fast….
Keeping this one a secret for a little while longer but my POTD is just a little hint. If you guess right away, DON’T SAY A WORD!!
Three days of SEO. Three Days! Three days and almost 100 sites because i’m too much of a control freak to have someone else do it for me (or too cheap, as my husband says).
I go through this once a year…..I update my site about once a year…… site maintenance once a year. But, I will say this…..it leaves the rest of the year open for shooting!!
Every year my sons get a package of Hot Wheels cars for Christmas…..even the oldest at 13. It’s one of only a handful of gifts the continue to use two days after the holidays are long gone.
Today I took a break from coding and SEOs and walked into this…..a full fledged city drawn on a flooring box and all four on the floor…..making deals and creating senarios….learning real life problem solving and cooperation. (For the most part).
Gotta love imagination…..
Nothing helps me clear my mind better than an appointment calendar and a list notebook. I love the apps on my phone, like Outliner and Thinking Space, but most of the time I remember things better after physically writing them down. (Yes, all those class notes in school have carried over into my adulthood.)
I had already bought a new appointment calendar and had the first few months mapped out. It was a lime green & black floral design which was the best I could find at the time. But today the store had a whole new line of “organization products” and they were just my colors! You know…..it’s the little things that make you feel all warm and fuzzy.
