Stuff 3(365)

These are the things in my purse right now.  Not my giant bag, just the purse I carry with me everywhere. The only thing I removed first was a huge wad of paper trash - receipts, lab results, scribbled-on scraps of paper, grocery lists, etc.  Two things missing that are pretty much always in my purse are my phone and my point & shoot (both are sitting right next to me) but I resolved to just dump it out and photograph whatever was there in that moment. 

5 packs of gum
3 recipe cards from the sample area of the grocery store
1 Chapstick and 1 Aveeno lip balm
2 lip gloss tubes
1 tube of mascara
2 self breast-exam shower cards from my ob's office
2 pairs of Target sunglasses
1 Tide mini-pen
1 random strap to something
1 tube arnica gel
2 notepads
1 tin Altoid smalls
1 completely squashed mini 3 Musketeers
1 Ocean nasal saline spray
1 bottle Visine-A allergy eye drops
1 package emergency glucose tablets
1 blood sugar testing kit with insulin pen
1 extra point & shoot battery
1 package smoked almonds
1 tin Icebreakers Sours
1 coin purse
1 ticket dtub from Yo Gabba Gabba! Live
5 pens
1 piece of the part that holds my pocket wizard onto my flash
1 checkbook
1 package tissues
1 package crayons
1 wallet (I made it!)
1 business card holder
1 pair gloves
1 fingerless glove
1 battery changer for my camera

I think that's everything.  And it's not really as bad as I thought to be honest.

Thank God you didn't see the trash.

Typical 2(365)

Sticking with the "home" theme this week.  This is a portrait of Tim and me.  Guess which one is Tim?

I was going to elaborate on our personalities here but I think the toothpaste pretty much does the job for me.

In case you don't know me, I'm the one on the left.  If you do know me you SO already knew that.

P.S.  The reason for us having two very similar but in fact different tubes of toothpaste is that I am pregnant and there is only one VERY SPECIFIC toothpaste that tastes okay while making my teeth sufficiently clean-feeling.  And Tim bought a different one.

Safe (1)365

So, I've decided to do a 365 this year. 2011 is going to be a big year for our family and I really want to photograph it. The reason I've never done a 365 before is because frankly I can't handle the pressure. So I've decided that this is a no-pressure version. I will TRY to take a picture every day, but I will not fail the project if I miss one. I will try to get 7 photos every 7 days and if more than one comes from the same day so be it. Also I want to let go of the pressure of being "creative" every day. That means some photos will be "fancy", but lots will be snapshots, and lots will be from my phone. Whew.

This is Greyson's bed. Sometimes I look at it and shake my head. So many things about it make me smile for such a small area. He is still my little boy-little enough to still have alphabet sheets. He piles everything into the corner to make a "fort" to bury himself in at bedtime. The "guys" range from Batman to Kangaroo and Joey to a giant heart to Bear to Kung Fu Bunny. He has the superhero thing going on but for some reason wanted to switch the labels. Even more puzzling is the fact that the Hulk label is reversed. But since I am constantly shaking my head and wondering what is going on with G, why should I not feel that way about his bedroom? He randomly gets afraid at night and so I put the word SAFE above his bed to protect him. If only that were all it took.
