I had these big, big plans of snapping 10 pictures that summed up my 10th of January, and y'all, life hit me hard.
I totally failed snapping a picture of my alarm going off, but I wasn't sure which alarm to photograph, because I'm totally this kind of person....
and I totally know this about myself!!
All the alarms, and I still can't!
(Side note: this isn't my alarm. I found it on pinterest, but it totally looks like my personal alarms!)
Then after dropping the kids off at school, I headed to my grandparents' house. I try to swing by there several times during the week, and while there, my Poppy needed to do some things on the farm with the cows. I stayed with my Mim, who has dementia and other health issues, and she has to have someone with her as much as possible.
I snapped no pictures while there, because she slept most of the time, and I even had to help Poppy load the sweet feed for the cows!!
Then I did the afternoon mad dash before taking Nataleigh to cheer.
I then sat at cheer for 2 hours freezing my butt off because that building has awful heating and cooling in the waiting area!
Finally we all showered, ate dinner, and went to bed!
It was Thursday.
While it was a mostly routine day, I totally didn't think one thing about snapping any pictures, except 1 @ cheer.
I did, however, want to reflect on 10 things from my very ordinary, not photo-worthy day.
1. I should have snapped more pictures. The ordinary, non-photo worthy times are what make life so sweet!
2. I cherish every second with my Mim and Poppy. These moments are fleeting, and I don't regret pausing the laundry and dishes and errands for any one second that I spend with them.
3. I must always pack a heavy coat when going to cheer, or I turn into a grouchy Elsa..FROZEN!
4. Life is good...especially in the mundane, 'boring' days.
5. I need to set one alarm and get up..the first time it goes off.
6. I need to keep it more real, and happily show off the moments that don't make the highlight reel.
7. I'm so thankful for a hubby who actually enjoys farm work, and I so wish he could be on the farm every single day.
8. Speaking of which, I'm not cut out for hauling sweet feed & such around.
9. My kiddos love seeing me out there being their biggest cheerleaders, even if I am a popsicle.
10. One of the best things that came out of the worst days of my life is the close relationship I have with my grandparents. They are wonderful, Godly people that I can't imagine life without. They are the glue to our family!!
