As a family we try to sit down to dinner every night together.  We don't always succeed, especially now that the oldest has a job.  But everyone that is home sits down to eat together, no television, just food and conversation.

Day 15 - in my bag

Exercise class today, so my clothes are in my bag.

BHBC - My Life Map

This time, BlogHer gave us another unique book to review.  My Life Map is a journal, but not just any journal.  It's a journal designed to make you review your life, and to determine your future.  It's a book you need to write in, and think about.  

One of the things I appreciated about this books approach was that it made you also look at where you've been, not just where you want to go.  We need to stop and think about the things that have led us where we are and how those events can help us move forward.  Looking back isn't always easy, but this book helped by providing some guidance and tools for doing so.

This book is nice because it can be used by anyone of any age.  It's also nice because it can be revisited, and changed, at any time.  

I'm happy that I had the opportunity to review this book, and I'm hoping to spend some more time with my journal.

This is a paid review for BlogHer Book Club but the opinions expressed are my own.

Day 14 - Man made

I'm stretching the subject a bit today.  Although this isn't man made in the sense of things like buildings and lakes, my hubby did leave this for me this morning.

Day 13 - Where you slept

I want to get more sleep, but it always seems that I start working on my chores, and before I know it, I look at the clock and it's 11 pm. I have a feeling it's not going to change until after the Holidays.  I'll just have to get some sleep on the weekends and holidays I guess.

Day 8 - Everyday

Today's prompt was something you do every day. Every night I cuddle with my son, and it is truly one of the best parts of my day. We usually read side by side for 20 or so minutes, then snuggle and chat before I tuck him in. It's a great waynformhim to wind down and me to get some cuddles.

Day 7 - reflection

The theme today is reflection. And while I took this in the mirror, I prefer to think of the reflecting I'm doing on the theme of my shirt. This election caused even stronger divides than we already had, and the only way we are going to improve our country is to live united.

Day 6 - A Favorite Thing

My basement craft space is one of my favorite places to be. One of theses days I actually finish writing my post about it.

Day 5 - 5 O'Clock

Day 5's theme is 5 O'Clock.  Pretty much every day at 5:00, I'm in my car.  Either picking someone up or dropping someone off.  My Sirius is my life line...I can't stand commercials!

Day 4 - Television

The movie theater where I live offers the cheapest movies between 4 and 6, so that's when we try to go.  We went Saturday to see Wreck It Ralph, but unfortunately they sold out right before we got there.  So I bought our tickets for Sunday's showing.  Today's theme was tv, but I stretched it a screens are just big tv's, right?

We all loved the movie by the way.

Day 3- breakfast

Today's theme is breakfast. I have a Luna bar almost every morning. Breakfast is a hard meal for me. I don't like cereal, it doesn't last. I don't usually have time to make eggs or meat. Since I'm trying to get back on program and lose more weight, these are a great solution.

And my one cup of coffee a day with a touch of flavored all natural creamer. Ahhhh!!!

Day 2 - NaBloPoMo and November Picture a Day

The sunrises and sunsets around here lately have been gorgeous.  The whole sky lights up with the colors.  It makes me want to just stand and take it all in, but unfortunately I'm usually rushing from dropping kids off to work.  But I still make sure I take at least a minute to enjoy the beauty and appreciate the simple pleasure.  

"Sunrise this morning. The pinks and oranges coloured the whole sky, making me feel like I was under a bowl. It was gorgeous. #novemberphotoaday #nofilter #fmsphotoaday"

So I signed up for a picture a day for November on Instagram, and then I signed up for NaBloPoMo again.  I figure if nothing else, I can post my picture each  But I'm hoping to throw some real posts in there as well.

So Day one was something that starts with C.
Monster went with his dad to buy his first deodorant.  It is Cool Wave scent.  This makes me so sad...he's turning into a pre-teen, and I'm losing my baby.  Luckily, he still loves his mama to pieces.
