It's Real Life

Found this tonight. It's late. I'm exhausted. And I'm going to do it anyway. I'm to take pictures of the following things without altering their state or the photo taken. Here goes.

My Fridge - Typical mess on the outside but actually mostly tidy on the inside. Big ol' pan of enchiladas that a friend surprised us with the other day thawing on the middle shelf.

My sink - fairly good really. A few dishes used late tonight and a milk jug needing to be rinsed and put in the recycle. All things for the morning, otherwise, clean. Wow!

My laundry - Actually it's still Rob's laundry until he gets deployed. Here's the pile waiting to be folded tonight. I meant to go back and shoot a pick of the actual laundry room but forgot until I was already downloading my pics.

A closet - This is our hall closet. Lots of winter coats that are getting far too much use this summer - Arg! It's also where Gabe can go to raid the games and puzzles when he wants to play.

My toilet - the downstairs 1/2 bath toilet.

What my kids are doing now - sleeping. All three of them. At least until we try to go to bed and then Gideon will wake to nurse. At least he's quick about it. :) I can't believe that I was brave enough to open Zion's door for her pic. She is such a light sleeper you don't dare do that usually but I cracked the door and got it with my zoom.




Self portrait - Ugh! I can't believe I'm posting this. It's awful.

My favorite shoes - hard to do right now since I'm in one of those I-hate-everything-I-own moods but I wear these the most - until the weather warms up at least.

My favorite room - this one was tough. This isn't the room that I spend the most time in but it was intended to be a nice sitting room for when we have visitors or to have some quiet time. As you can see, despite what I'd intended, it's where the kids play and Gabe has even built a "tent" in the corner. And we were out late tonight so they didn't pick up their toys before bed.

Cool, now you've seen me in "real life".
