2018 Catch the Moment – Week 3

Hi! So this week, I completely forgot to do the prompt from Catch the Moment, which was: Cold. Oh well! But I did remember to use one of the themes from the weekly prompts over at the Recapture Self Village. The January prompts are Just for Me, At My Feet, My Day, and On My Lap. This week, I did: At My Feet, on Jan 18th.

015 | Mon, Jan 15 ~ I cleaned my desk! It’s coming together, slowly but surely. It really is an ongoing struggle. I’ve been reading Unf*ck Your Habitat and I feel like it’s actually helping. This was two 20/10s (20 mins cleaning / 10 min break). Just gotta keep working at it!

2018 Catch the Moment 365 – Week 2

Hello! It’s a new week, with new photos! The theme this week for the Catch the Moment group is Goals/Wish for the Year, and for me, that’s my Jan 11 photo. I want to get much more fit than I currently am, and am paving the way for that now.

Without further ado, here are the photos!

008 | Mon, Jan 8 ~ Homer painted a still life of a bowl of apples and oranges in school. His art makes me so darn happy! I love displaying it on the walls. This one is hanging above my desk right now.

Catch the Moment – Week 21

141 | May 20, Fri – Let me tell you about Homer meeting Dolly the Pony at Fox Hollow Farm. He was SO scared! He insisted on getting off immediately the first time he got on. I think his butt was in the saddle maybe a full second before he was back up and “Nope, nope, nope”-ing his way out of there. Then my sweet friend, Shoshana, told him more about it, how it’s wobbly but fun, and the pony didn’t go very far (her daughter had ridden shortly before Homer tried). Then she said, “But if you don’t want to, that’s ok, too!”

And she inspired me! She made me realize that there was one more thing I knew I could offer, and if he turned it down, I’d know he wasn’t ready yet. “How about you try it just for a few steps, until Dolly walks next to that tree? And if you still don’t like it, just tell me, and you can get off,” I said, and pointed to the tree about five feet from the the starting point. “Ok!” he agreed.

So we got back in line, and when it was time, he sat in the saddle, and we started walking. He nervously giggled and marveled at it the entire time. “It feels like she’s about to start running!! But she’s not running! She’s walking! Good pony! Good girl, Dolly!” It was so incredibly cute! I’m ridiculously proud of him that he was willing to do it even though he was scared. He did so awesome! Look at this smile!

Catch the Moment – Week 17

I got behind once more, but here we go. Catch up time!

113 | April 22, Fri – Homer and his pal, C., having a play date at McDonald’s, where they first met. Now they’re in preschool together, and are good buddies. They’re super cute together. Homer tried to show off in front of him, uttering, “Hey! Let’s annoy my mom!” moments after this was taken. Smh.
