Journaling: Our lives were pretty much on hold while Sean was sick. And things around the house went undone. Such as laudry, mail, dishes... you name it. Today we started to chip away at some things such as cleaning the kitchen and sorting the mail. Meanwhile, our Christmas tree is slowly coming together, literally. Only a picture of the lights would suffice for today. Little by little the sparkle is coming back into the house.I didn't snap any pictures today because I was knee-deep in catching up with things around the house and with school work. After the sun went down I remembered to pick up my camera, and then I was overwhelmed with the thought that it's only day #2 and I've already screwed up this project. Ugh. I'm always quick to beat myself up. But then I realized this is what this project is all about. Our every day. every. day. So I pulled myself back up and I started to think about what I wanted to write about today - cleaning and organizing - and the word *sparkle* came to mind. And staring at our half built ten-foot Christmas tree inspired me to take a picture of the lights out of focus. It sums up my day. We're in transition around here but things are starting to come together.
