Life This Week, Today, and Summer

1.  I'm so behind on blogging/emailing/etc.  If this directly affects you, I'm sorry.  I'm working on it...but the first day of summer kinda trumps anything else today...although with the fact that when I have too much to do, I just do nothing.

2.  My husband gifted me with 9 gifts during the 9 days leading up to our 9th anniversary.  It was way over the top and I loved every bit of it!  The last and final gift is sort of a surprise and probably won't happen until this weekend, but I'll be sure to post it here on Monday....or Tuesday, or whenever I get around to it.  (see #1)

3.  I recently bought Lightroom and I'm quite smitten....although highly unfamiliar with the software.  I need some tutorials stat, as well as any preset recommends.  Here's a favorite of mine from a recent photo session.  I always fell like images can be editing a little more, and a little bit more.  Even now, looking at this one, I see things that need to be changed, like more cropping, lightening, etc.  Photography brings out the perfectionist in me....which very few things are capable of doing.  I'm usually such a "eh, it's good enough" kind of girl.

4.  Hallelujah, school's out for summer!  I didn't come downstairs today until 9:00!!!!  That doesn't mean the munchkies didn't wake me up at 7ish, but their daddy had prepared baggies of cereal and put the T.V. on PBS so that I was able to get a little bit more shut-eye this morning.  Crossing my fingers this trend can continue throughout the summer!

5.  Even though it's the first day of summer vacation for my kids, I'm being a meanie and making my kids help clean the house rather than heading to the pool like everyone else in our neighborhood.  I'm hosting Bunco tomorrow night and a party Saturday morning, so getting the house clean comes first today.  And naps come second.  What a terrible, no-fun mom I am, huh?  ;)
(Oh, and I think I have pink eye....so the pool probably doesn't want me anyway.)

What do you have going on today???

    1. You know...it's not itching and hasn't discharged since this morning, so now I'm thinking I might just have a regular infection from wearing my contacts too long. Either way, it looks pretty gnarly. :)
