a week in the life - monday

Number of Photos for Monday: 27

I need to start every morning with coffee, then a shower, then more coffee.  I probably drink way too much but it keeps me going through the day and keeps me from snacking.  I enjoy my first cup...quietly...by myself (and now with Sara) in the sunroom or the big chair in the living room.  It is 15 minutes of peace before the craziness that is my day sets in at 6:45.  This is my treat to myself...my me time...enjoying my coffee with steamed milk and cinnamon on top.

I haven't yet decided which, or how many, pictures I will be using in my album, I am sure that will come together next week...until then, here are a few of my favorites from the day:

I take after my mother and have this thing for curled potato chips.  I won't eat any other chips in the bag, just the curled ones and the kids (and Bob) know to hand them over.  I found these 3 when making Bob's lunch this morning and they were just drool worthy.  The temptation to put them in a container and save them until I am ready to eat carbs ago was quite strong, but I resisted and let my dear husband indulge...although I did ask him to savor every bite, as they were very special to me.

JT making breakfast, although his bowl of cereal could realistically count towards lunch and dinner as well.  We don't typically lounge around in Sport Coats, we were on our way to a funeral.

a candid shot in the car.  I have very few pictures of me and this project is aimed at correcting that...once and for all.

Doing some online shopping in an attempt to get my craft room/office organized. 

yes, my eyes are closed.  Yes, my room is a mess...but I absolutely love this picture because what it captures...me laughing, being happy and just enjoying life.  I am pretty sure I was just slathered with puppy kisses, but isn't that what life is all about?

Dinner.  Yeah, my goal back from vacation was to have a home cooked meal on the table every night...tonight it just didn't happen...nothing thawed, running late and didn't get home with the kids from Tae Kwan Do until 7:45...this mama was not cooking then.

Bob playing with Sara, a nightly ritual, those 2 bonding.  She absolutely loves to play & cuddle with her pink dragon. 

Kelsey's usual position throughout the evening.  She is on the phone with her BFF Shannon (whom she was with all day).  They are also on Club Penguin and chatting on Facebook at the same time.

Love this. Always will.

catching up on the 143 blogs that I absolutely love to read.  I am a bit addicted.  Thank goodness they don't all post everyday...I would never get anything done.

I am so glad I have undertaken this project.  I am starting to feel more comfortable with my camera after a day and a half of shooting and I am seeing things in a whole new perspective.  Yes this is everyday life, but it is OUR everyday life, right here, right now.

See you tomorrow with a glimpse at Tuesday.
