Week In The Life - In Progress

Hello there! I'm on day 4 of my A Week In The Life project and it's going well.I feel like I've been collecting some decent pictures and memorabilia, but I have this feeling that I won't know if I've been successful or not until I sit down and collectively put the whole thing together. Right now it just feels like a list of really boring activities, pictures of really boring places and lots of fast food wrappers (well, not that many but it seems like all I have for some days).

I find myself taking a lot of pictures in the morning but not so many through the day. Technically I'm not supposed to be snapping photos in my office, and the people I work with act like I'm Voldemort when I pull out the camera. As if taking a picture is going to make them explode or something. What's up with that? Then after 5PM I just totally blank. I'll have to work on that tonight, taking more pics of the evening routine!

Anyway, all for now as I'm at work and can't upload any pics from here.

Happy New Year?

Oh boy, I know it's been a while. But I didn't realize I haven't posted this year at all, sheesh!

Anyway, just wanted to let you know that tomorrow I'll be participating in Ali Edward's A Week in the Life documentation project.  This will be a great week to document as we are back to a regular schedule now that Spring Break is over, and we have a birthday and school play to include. I'm going to follow her 4-page a day format, although I'm worried this will be too much. All I can do is try and see how it works out. I've got a yellow envelope ready for each day's ephmera, and I've made a rough schedule of how our week is going to look so I can make sure to get photos of everything in between. 

Even though I'm planning to be as spontaneous as a I can about this project, I've made a list of things I want to try to include so I can make sure to squeeze in those extra pics and moments I might need on the "off-days."

Monday - Work, Bell Choir, Circle Meeting
Tuesday - School visit, doctor appt, parent-teacher conference
Wednesday - Work, Olivia's birthday, Church
Thursday - Work, School Play
Friday - Work, School Play
Saturday -
Sunday - Church, Birthday Party

This list will also help me organize myself after the week is over so I can remember what happened when. I also made a list of things I want to make sure to document.
  • My outfit everyday
  • Where I work
  • Who I work with
  • My office
  • Picking up Olivia from school
  • Lizzy at the bus stop
  • Church activities (I have almost no pictures of this!)
  • How much does gas, bread, milk, etc cost?
  • Where we grocery shop
  • What we ate
  • What I read
  • Newsworthy events
  • Etc?
All for now! Looking forward to getting started tomorrow. :)
