August 2011 in Instagrams

September 6, 2011

Last month I made a goal to take one non blog photo every single day.  I very often have my camera with me, but not as often remember to take pictures of the little things around me that I love, or that I don’t want to miss.  I absolutely loved this project, and I am so glad that I did it.  I took all of these photos with my phone and uploaded them to Instagram.  I’ll definitely do this again.

August 2011 Instagrams

I woke up early this morning, about 5:00 while Scott was getting ready to go to work.  And unfortunately  I couldn’t go back to sleep.  With his new job and new commute he gets up at 4:45 am and leaves by 5:15.  He doesn’t get back home until 7:30 or so, and is asleep by 9:00 pm.  Our time together as a family has changed so drastically.  I am still adjusting, Creamie misses her daddy all the time and I am running out of ideas to keep us both occupied for so long without him.  Sigh. The first day of preschool starts in a few hours and I am not quite sure what I’ll do while Creamie is off learning numbers and colors and how to share.  Maybe I’ll take my art journal box and go hang out at the park for a little while.  We’ll see how put together I get in the next two hours…

    Oh, that is such a long day for you girls, and for Scott, too. I hope Creamie has the most wonderful first day. She’ll be teaching everyone else their colors!!! I love your instagram photos, my fav is the train-tracks walk. So sweet. Hey, how’d you make the mosaic…from Big Huge Labs & flickr?

      Yes, mosaic was from big huge labs. I put all the pics I wanted in their own flickr set and then you can create a mosaic from a set instead of loading each image individually. After the mosaic was done I deleted the set. Presto! Easy Peasy.

    Sorry to hear of the lack of family time with husband and dad. That’s how our family operates too. Some days he leaves before they’re awake and gets home after they’re asleep and sometimes he leaves and works 24 hours straight and we all say see you tomorrow. It just stinks. Could always be worse, but it stinks. I cope with the “single mom mode” I sometimes find myself with projects. In fact I’ve noticed an increase in projects when my husband has a busy schedule. So it helps me cope and motivates me to create to avoid the loneliness, hopefully you’ll have an outlet in your own in your creative mind and while it stinks, you can find something positive to come from it until things can change. Good luck! How lucky to have had the job so close he could come home for lunch before! Which makes this change probably a lot harder.
