Yeah, this was about the only time during the day that she didn’t yell or throw a fit. Gotta love parenthood lol
When I was little, I used to love hearing my grandma tell me stories about her childhood. I could listen to her stories for hours. In some way Aaron’s mom reminds me of her. Judy will tell stories about his childhood and I could literally listen for hours. :) One story she likes to tell is whenever they went on vacation she made sure to locate the nearest hospital when they got there because she just knew she would be taking one of her boys there during the trip lol. Well, I feel like her this summer. Is it bad when your phone automatically connects to the wifi in damn near every hospital in the area?
This last hospital stay, I took my camera along. I just became a contributor over on Love That Shot and need to submit an article by the end of the month. Well, only place I seem to be lately is the hospital. My thought was to write an article on how to photograph a subject who doesn’t want to be photographed. How would I tell the story of the moment without actually showing the subject? We all know how much Aaron loves being in front of my camera lol :P I shot these images with that concept in mind. Not for sure if that’s the article that I will submit of not. I guess you’ll have to stay tuned for that one. :)
FITFAM how do you stay motivated when your mind just isn’t in it? While #mriamkimkravitz was in and out of the hospital the last few months, I’ve totally stopped going to the gym and eating healthy. Now that he’s on the mend, I know I need to start going back and eating better. I just can’t seem to find the willpower to go. :-/ I have the time and the cute clothes, always need cute workout gear lol, but what I don’t have is the mental energy to go. I want to be fit. I want to feel mentally better. I want to look like I did when we went to the MP ball. Tell me what your secret is to keeping your motivation when life sucks-ish?
AH! This past week or so I’ve taken a break from my personal Facebook account. Yep, totally deactivated it. lol And I still haven’t decided when I’m going to reactivate it yet. It’s been quite and nice and I’ve been less pissed off. I was thinking about it this morning and I have come to the conclusion that Facebook has taken away our “cooling off time.” If that makes sense. Before Facebook, if you had an issue with one of your friends, you just didn’t talk for a few days or weeks and then you got over it. Remember? We didn’t have to see each other all the time, we didn’t have to know what they were doing every minute of every day, we couldn’t sit here and obsess over it every time it popped up in our newsfeed and get even more pissed off at something that could have been taken care of with a few days of cooling off. We would simply see each other in passing. You had time to “miss” that person. If it was a real friendship, you’d get over and life would go back to normal. You’d have lunch or something, decide it was stupid in the first place, and BAM! you’re back to being friends again and this is just something you’d laugh about in the future because it was totally ridiculous in the first place. You know what I mean? I feel like I’m sounding like a crazy person right now lol. So, if I don’t sound like a crazy person to you, let me know in the comments. ;)
And just to get it out there too, yes, I kept my fan pages. I have a business to run and it’s part of my marketing. “BUT you kept your “artist” fan page!?” Yes, I did. It has given me the ability to share and to connect without having to see what everyone is doing at every minute of the day. ;)
