Last week was consumed with either being sick or taking care of a sick little girl, it was a long, ugly week. I said I would have this post finished up for last Monday and just could not muster up the energy to do it.
Today I am sharing my "Day in the Life" that I did back on Thursday, September 12. It was my attempt at participating in Ali Edward's Week In The Life. I couldn't commit to documenting an entire week but I could do one day. This is a typical Thursday in my life, if I don't go the gym I get up and do work so the timeline is fairly accurate. Cory has MMA on Thursday's so unless I am teaching a class at Treasured Memories it's just Anna & I for the whole day with a short break for dinner with Daddy.
I haven't decided how I want to organize these pictures into my project life album but it is something that I will be doing.
