it's no secret that I'm horrible at blogging. but there's this innate desire in me to keep trying different things to make me better.
because i love blogs.
i love my morning cuppa coffee, reading a few daily blogs and discovering new ones. after the girls have gone off to the bus stop, while X is watching his morning cartoons, or playing wii. while scarlet is trudging around the house, eating her multi-grain cheerios, pulling every tissue out of the box, or trapping herself in the bathroom pulling every toothbrush out of the drawer and then proceeding to suck on them brush her teeth. yet i continue to keep them in the drawer. you'd think i'd just move them. nope.
and i like writing. i like keeping a little log of our daily happenings. but i don't. but i want to.
and i [obviously] love taking pictures. the everyday stuff is my favorite.
so i'm starting a new feature. just a picture. no words necessary. what's that they say about a photo being worth a thousand words? i'll just let the image speak for itself. that seems easy. maybe i'll keep this up. maybe it'll inspire me to actually blog more. and write more. and log our daily happenings. because i love those. and i want to remember all of it. the mundane stuff is the stuff i cherish the most. not the flashy stuff. no, not here. i like the crumbs on the floor, the mail piled up on the kitchen island, the toothpaste all over the sink. and i like the happy family that lives here. the laughter that fills the air, the spontaneous dance parties in the living room. the hysterically ridulous dance moves that jon pulls just to make the kids, and me, laugh. and the way that they try to imitate him. for like weeks after. the half finished projects. the laundry piled up. every.where. every light being on because apparently none of us know what an off switch is. and i know that's so un-green of us. but i kind of don't care. it's those little things that mash together to make our family ours. and us, us.
and i really, kind of, love us. we're kind of my favorite.
here's to a thousand words. let's see how this goes.
