Just a few things to do.......Ongoing projects and insanity

Just the other day, I thought to myself that I really have to pull it together....Seriously, what is going on around here? The laundry is piling up, the dishwasher seems to be perpetually full, and where did that baby crawl off to, now? How did all this start to come apart at the seams? Well.....I thought about it, and took stock of all the little projects I have working right now...(And this is on top of the usual stuff of keeping the family fed, clothed, and largely intact) My to-do list reveals an unsettling level of insanity.

You know, I was about to add "Make appointment with doctor to check for anemia" because I haven't been this tired since I had a severe case of it during my last pregnancy. However, now that I've looked at my to-do list, I think I'm just flippin' TIRED. sheesh.

It's 11pm, and the baby is crying. Must run! Whee!

Zoom lenses are the answer!

 Posted by Picasa

I have been struggling for a long time with the challenge of getting a natural smile out of the older girls.....the secret seems to be to use a very strong zoom lens and sneak upon them unawares.......
