My family left last Tuesday and finally came home yesterday afternoon. They went to visit Noah’s grandma in Manitoba and left me alone for six days and five nights. I spent the whole time terrified that there were people in my house, I locked my bedroom door at night, I locked the bathroom door and pulled a drawer open blocking it when I took a shower, and I checked the locks on the outside doors three times each before going to bed. It was all totally worth it, though. I heard stories every night of fun had that day, and many more stories when they got home.
If I was single, I would live with a roommate. Or six. There is no way I could live completely on my own. I’ve always had at least Kaylie with me since I moved out of my parents’ house, so I’ve never lived by myself. Nor do I ever want to. It’s awful.
While they were gone, I started a resolution; no, a challenge, one I’ve been attempting every year for the last seven years. The challenge of taking a photo every day for a year. As with reading 52 books in a year, I’m just going to try to make it further than I did the year before, rather than having a pass or fail. Or maybe I’ll aim for every day and not really care whether or not I miss a day. I think I’ve made it into March once taking a photo daily. So, I make it past March, and I win. Or something. Also, I’m doing it with my real camera, not my iPhone camera. Just to make it harder on myself. Basically, I just want to take more photos with my real camera and if I make it to one every day, cool. If not, it reall doesn’t matter.
Day 1: black & white
Day 2: what I did today
Day 3: water
Day 4: circle
Like I said, I don’t like pass/fail resolutions. I do, however, like challenges, so this one should be fun.
AND! In exciting news, I’ll be posting about The Bachelor again this season, starting in 3 … 2 … 1 …
