Reverb 10 Prompt – 5 minutes

December 15 – 5 Minutes

Imagine you will completely lose your memory of 2010 in five minutes. Set an alarm for five minutes and capture the things you most want to remember about 2010. (Author: Patti Digh)

Hummmm that is a tough one.  But if I had to choose…I would say the things that I would most want to remember about 2010 is all the ordinary or everyday conversations I shared with my children.  Remembering the funny things that they say like out past conversation here and how my little girl says “Hi babee” when I get home from work.  Or those great talks we have right before going to bed.  Yes, that is what I would want to remember about 2010…our talks.

Reverb 10 Prompt – Appreciate

December 14 – Appreciate

What’s the one thing you have come to appreciate most in the past year? How do you express gratitude for it? (Author: Victoria Klein)

The one thing that I have come to appreciate the most this past year is time.  2010 has been a tough year for those close to me as my loved ones have had to deal with what feel like a lot of death.  It started with the death of my sister’s godfather on Christmas day  2009 and ended with the death of my grandmother’s dearest friend whom I have called my “aunt” my entire life.  Both Sonny and Aunt Lucille were very dear to me and were instrumental in molding me into the woman who I have become.  Losing them has made me reflect on the all the time that I have been so lucky to spend with them…all of the talks that we had…and the stories that they shared with me.  The greatest gift that they shared with me…something that I will cherish for the rest of my life is the gift of their time.

My way of showing my gratitude of this amazing gift, is by giving others whom I love the gift of my time.  It’s when I stop doing whatever I’m doing and fully engage with the other person.  No mutli-tasking…no texting…no checking emails or facebook…it’s just them and me…spending time with each other.

Never a dull moment

As a mom of 3 you I am constantly entertained.  Trust me when I tell you that I am entertained on a daily basis.   Following is a conversation that took place this week with me and my two son’s.

Me: Stop scratching your butt, that’s nasty!

#2: I’m not scratching my butt, it’s my side…I think I have mono nucleus.

Me: Mono nucleus?  You mean mononucleosis?

#2: Yeah…how do you get it?

Me: Well they call it the “kissing disease” so you can get it from kissing another person or drinking after someone.

#1: I thought the kissing disease was meningitis?

#2: No, I thought meningitis is what you get when you floss and it starts bleeding?

Me: {laughing} no that is gingivitis…

A picture is worth 1,000 words…or shall I say 2,920 words to be exact


I have been toying with the whole 365 photo project for a while now.  This is where you take a picture of yourself everyday for 365 days.  I’ve read about this project on several of the blogs that I visit and as much as I think it is a cool way to document “you” I never really thought that I could commit to it.  I mean come on….we’re talking about 365 days…366 if we’re doing it during a leap year.  Taking a photo of yourself….that’s well….that’s a lot.  But what if someone took it one step further…let’s say someone took a picture of themselves everyday for 8 years!  Yes, people, I’m talking roughly 2,920 photos of yourself!  Well that is just what JK Keller did in his Living My Life Faster photo project.  The coolest part of this project (at least in my eyes) is that he was able to show all 2,920 photo’s in a slide show that lasts approximately 1 minute and 43 seconds.

Now I don’t know if I could do a project like this…but then you never know…..
