A Week in MY Life 2012: Monday

I found out about this from , of Ocean Wide Designs, and I thought, hmmm, I can do this! I can take a picture, a few, all , of how my is going, for a week. I mean, shoot, I do it daily anyway, with Photo a and my Project 365. So, I’m just going to be taking more pictures.

Then half the day went by and I went “Um, have I even taken one picture?” I had, but not that many!

Takes place in my city, written by people in my city #capitalcitycapers #Topeka #FMSPhotoADay #FMSPhotoADayOct
Hey, at least I had something, right? This was for the Photo a Day challenge. My town, or something like that. It’s a book. Based in Topeka, written by Topeka writers (including myself), and sponsored by the Topeka Shawnee County Public Library. I can’t get more “my town” than that, :lol:.

Day 01 - Oct 22, 2012
I spent a good chunk of the day, glued to character sheets and the internet. I have to get that NaNoWriMo prep going, because if I don’t, I’m going to end up with one crappy story. I need to win again!

Day 01 - Oct 22, 2012
One way I’m going to be able to achieve that win is through the sprints. My friend Mel runs them, and I’m a volunteer. I’m pretty much in chat all day, every day now. Helping other people prepare, and all that good stuff.

Day 01 - Oct 22, 2012
I didn’t shower. At all. The plan had been to do it while Madi was out with the Girl Scouts, helping Harvester’s with their donations. That plan didn’t work out so well, as it’ll be seen later, :lol:.

Day 01 - Oct 22, 2012
I had Campbell’s Sirloin Burger with Country Vegetables for lunch. I don’t have lunch often. Usually it’s just pulling out a couple packages of fruit snacks or something.

Day 01 - Oct 22, 2012
Waiting for the bus. This is a daily occurrence. Though this week, ironically, it won’t be. The kids have a 4 day weekend. Parent-teacher conferences, and the setting up for a new grading quarter. In fact, tonight, I have parent-teacher conferences for both kids. I love that the teachers work together on figuring out a schedule so parents don’t have to come back several times if they have more than one child.

Day 01 - Oct 22, 2012
is a Junior in the Girl Scouts. Harvester’s had an opportunity to celebrate Juliette Low’s birthday, by giving back. The girls have a chance to get a badge, as well. they also, as you can tell, got cupcakes. I’m so proud of how well the girls behaved.

Day 01 - Oct 22, 2012
Madison did so good. She didn’t complain and she didn’t whine. We had a couple issues with some of the other girls, but on a whole, they did absolutely amazing. They showed how Girl Scouts are supposed to behave, and they learned something very important: they’re very lucky to have what they have. They might not have everything they want, but they have all that they need, and then some extras, which is so much more than what some children have.

Day 01 - Oct 22, 2012
Such a great group. I’m honored to be working with these girls, to be a part of this organization. I’ve met some absolutely amazing girls, and their moms are just as awesome. And see the tiny one of the hip? That’s one of my . Her sister is teh solitary in the group.

Day 01 - Oct 22, 2012
The kids’ school pictures also came in! We got a CD this year, and they didn’t even watermark the pictures! ?

My beautiful baby girl. I cannot believe she’s NINE!

Han’m! My boy!

Day 01 - Oct 22, 2012
I also had some Sonic. Their cheesecake bites are TO DIE FOR! Yum, so freaking YUM!

Day 01 - Oct 22, 2012
And the reason for this picture? I hadn’t planned to go to Harvester’s. Nope, not my plan. So I left my keys in the truck. Unlocked.
I come back? My keys were still in the ignition. The doors still unlocked. Oh crap. Did I really do that? I had to share with Becky, whom I rode with. She responded back with “Only you, Sarah, only you.”

    I love that you wrote a book and that you are so active in NaNoWriMo. I’ve done NaBloPoMo the last two years and really enjoyed it. I think I’m opting out this year though. Also, I have no idea how you don’t eat lunch every day. It is by far my favorite meal of the day. Hope your parent teacher meetings go well. I look forward to reading more tomorrow.

    • I’ve tried NaBloPoMo, and wow, I’m a failure at that. Serious failure. I think I’m going to attempt it this year, because I need accountability for NaNo, but I’m not going to require myself to do it ๐Ÿ˜€

      I’m a snacker. That’s how I don’t eat lunch. When it’s just me at home, food is the last thing I’m thinking of. I’m more worried about making sure I get everything done that I need.

      Parent-teacher meetings went well. No big surprises, which is always the best ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Oh… Hi Sarah LOL! I got a kick out of that! I barely have time for our personal blog anymore, so I never publicize it, so no one knows about it! I desperately need to update things, like linking to my new personal twitter ๐Ÿ˜

    Have I told you I’m so jealous that you have the time for the NaNoWriMo??? I’ve had a book/series idea working in my brain for a YEAR now and I have yet to write down ANYTHING. I just keep developing it as I fall asleep each night :-\ Maybe next year you can rope me in LOL!

    • With NaNo: You gotta make the time. I’m planning from like August on. ๐Ÿ˜€
      I’m lucky though. I have some REALLY understanding designers that I CT for ๐Ÿ˜‰ And Ginger and Missi are pretty awesome allowing me the time I need to do this. I’m HOPING this year that I finish the story so I can PUBLISH ๐Ÿ˜€

      I’m more than willing to rope you in next year. I’ll start bugging you in December, how about that?

    Dang girl I give you a lot of credit for being so involved with NaNoWriMo. I want to try every year and then chicken out cause it just seems like too much.

    And bravo for being involved with Girl Scouts. I was a GS from the age of 5 until 17 and it was one of the most enriching experiences of my young life. My mom was a leader for 25 years (even after her kids were grown). It really does teach the girls such valuable lessons and it looks like your girls are giving so much back. Good stuff ๐Ÿ™‚

    Can’t wait to read about the rest of your week!

    • It seems like a lot, and about week 2, you’re going “Oh god, why did I do this?” then you hit Week 4, just a few days, and you go “I can do this.” Win or lose, you feel a sense of accomplishment ๐Ÿ˜€

      This is only my second year working with Girl Scouts period. It’s my daughter’s third year. I’m already being recruited for a couple more years ๐Ÿ˜€ Makes me feel really good to help mold these girls, and see how positively their lives are affected ๐Ÿ˜€
