Participating in this project has been a bit more difficult than I anticipated. I took my camera out of my purse Monday for the photo & discovered the viewing screen was cracked!!! :-( My camera does not have a viewer on it other than the screen so, needless to say, taking a photo that you can't really see has been a bit difficult. I decided for the photo for today, January 3rd (ugh! it's not day 2 it's day 3!!!! I've already managed to not meet this challenge....sigh), I would take a self-portrait. I can't see the photo I took at all.
Okay, I just saw it. I can NOT believe I'm going to post this on a public blog, but here you are....
It's definitely not a photo I particularly like, but it does seem to answer Day 3's question
( http://www.sh1ft.org/q&a/ ) How do I feel? OLD! Not really. LOL I'm only 35. Although, I think how often when I was younger that I truly felt 35 WAS old. No longer. I realized I'm closer to 40 than 20. Then I realize that I don't really WANT to be 20 again. I really like my life now. I'm a stay-at-home Mom to my boys. I get to homeschool them. I don't have to work. My dh works hard so I can stay home & raise our kids. He's pretty amazing too. However, I WOULD like the body I had at 20 - before I had three babies - before I gained 60+ pounds. That is certainly showing in my face in this photo. Good motivation. That & my dh just told me tonight he'd buy me a Kitchen Aide mixer if I made my goal!!! Yippee!
