Week 8 | 2019

Whatever I said about being good with winter- well, I will say that I have now had enough. It is not that my kids are going crazy from being inside too much. It is my dogs who are losing it. I will walk them until it is in the low 20 degree area, but if it is too cold, they just do not have enough fur for those temperatures. They shake and shiver the whole time, and this makes me feel terrible for them. We are now in the aftermath of a blizzard, and it is in the low teens, so there have been no walks. Our newest family member has been exhibiting some behaviors. Unrolling toilet paper, stealing shoes and boots, chewing up pencils, chewing up library books, jumping on the table and snatching pizza and running away, and some potty training mishaps. He is adorable and totally forgiven. But I still want to GO OUTSIDE. I love outside.

I mentioned joining Weight Watchers last week. Food is hard. I will leave it at that for now.

Otherwise- there is the snow, as I mentioned, and trying to drive through the snow. I am making some travel plans, for soon and for later this summer. We made it to Girl’s Skate Night for some skateboarding at The Bay on Sunday, which was good. I have been shooting in my studio, both the floral still life you see here and some other stuff. I feel generally overwhelmed, and like I do not have time to do everything I want to do. I have intentions to update my portfolio section of this very website, along with my pricing, along with blogging some client work I have done over the past TWO YEARS, and I just can’t quite get to it. Other people and how they do all of the things- so confusing to me. I don’t even watch television regularly. I think there is something about ‘fringe hours” I am supposed to find as a mother, but I don’t have time to read that book.
