The Game of Life

So, when I learned that this month was all about “A Day in the Life” here at The Creative Mama, I had this idea to chronicle my day in snapshots. In doing so, I realized that my days were pretty boring. I tried to spice it up a bit ;-). [Larger, readable version HERE – you should be able to save and open in PS or zoom in on your browser]. Some notes:

  • Yes. I do eat. Plenty. I forgot to take pictures of that. Probably because my husband makes the meals around here. And thank goodness for that or else we would all starve. No lie.
  • We are currently homeschooling. And by “we,” I mean my husband is doing everything. Bless him.
  • I spend more time at my computer than I care to. Working to remedy that.
  • I spend more time on laundry than I care to. No clue as to how to remedy that aside from renting out clothes to my kids so they won’t go through as many outfits in a day.
  • On days when I don’t have sessions at night, I usually end up staying up late to proof a session. On those days, the “start” and “finish” lines in my gameboard would probably intersect ;-).
  • Evidently, I like the British spelling of the word “thornE.”
  • When I went to post this today, I about fell out of my chair when I saw Stacey’s post. TOO FUNNY!!!!! I *almost* dumped this whole idea because of it, but then I thought how cool it was to see how similar our days were! And how my life used to be when I had an infant.  Made me a bit wistful…even remembering how much sleep was lost.
  • BONUS QUESTION: I’ll send a $5 iTunes gift card to the first person who can tell me who I was listening to while on the treadmill that day.;-)

    Very cool! Loved the snuggle bonus spots :) I have a random question: What kind of treadmill do you have & do you love it? We’ve been in the market & I don’t want to get a cheap/bad feeling one, you know? Thanks!

  • Courtney Bolle

    How creative! And happy to see a little bit of me on there :) I was also going to guess Gotye (ring ring!), but since that’s already taken, I will guess Calvin Harris, since it’s one of my faves to run to right now!
