i’m not sure what made me think that doing this whole “project 365” thing would actually make me post more frequently, but it’s definitely not! i’m more than a week behind on posting pics. oops! i have, however, been taking my photo-a-day rather faithfully. so, without further ado, here you are – a week (or more!) in my life…
thursday (jan. 15) – after taking my grandmother (i do have some pics somewhere to prove that she was actually here!) to the airport in Akron, we stopped at Best Buy to buy more memory for my computer. yay! it no longer runs at the speed of snail and i can have more than one application running without crashing. woohoo!!
friday (jan 16) – yup, we still have 10 or 12 inches of snow and the lows have been around -8 at night. it’s FREEZING!! but we FINALLY saw the sun today!
saturday (jan 17) – my mom, sister (emily) and i went to clinique for free mini-facials and makeovers. this was the first time i’d ever done anything like this and it was great! and we all looked rather fabulous if i do say so myself. 🙂
sunday (jan 18) – church was cancelled due to flooding caused by a water line break. our family enjoyed being home together most of the day. dad drove my sisters and i to the grocery store (the roads were seriously icy) and we did our own version of “supermarket sweep.” (anyone actually remember that show? we LOVED it at our house!) we started shopping like this when we had to do the grocery shopping for christmas dinner on dec. 23. basically, the team leader (myself) divides the master list into 3 smaller lists based on general category (produce, dairy, canned goods, etc), each of us takes a list and we shop as fast as we can. we may be dorks, but we have fun! and we get the grocery shopping done for my mom in record time. haha!
monday (jan 19) – there was a jon and kate plus 8 marathon on tlc and my sisters and i watched several hours worth. good times. and really, who doesn’t enjoy watching 8 smiling, happy children? 😉
tuesday (jan 20) – i decided it was time to start the sorting/packing process. i don’t know that i really made much progress, but at least i started. that counts, right? i HATE packing and trying to figure out what to pack in 4 suitcases for 2-3 years seriously stresses me out. i hyperventilate just typing about it! i will get it done though….at least that’s what i keep telling myself!
(btw – it looks as if i’ll be leaving feb. 3)
wednesday (jan 21) – caught a glimpse of this gorgeous sunset out the front door of our house. amazing, isn’t it?
(i actually have another pic for this day of some super cute baby clothes i bought for my “niece,” lindsey, but won’t post them until she actually gets them! you can see her beautiful face at: http://duhdunks.blogspot.com)
thursday (jan 22) – my sisters and i went and saw “bride wars.” it was so good! hilarious and adorable. a perfect romantic comedy. and we all know i love me some romantic comedy. 🙂
friday (jan 23) – mallory wanted to get some photos of izzy playing in the snow, so we went to the park this afternoon. she didn’t pose quite as well as we would have liked, but we got a few fun ones. this one especially makes me laugh. izzy can pull ridiculously hard and has come close to pulling me over more than once!
if you’ve made it all the way to the end of this marathon of photos i’m amazed. congratulations! you must really care about what i’m doing every day. or you’re really bored. either way, thanks for reading. 😉 for any of you who are interested, you can see what i’m doing with these photos at: http://sassysimpsonsisters.wordpress.com
