I took this photo last weekend while I was learning all the settings on my new camera (hence the blue coloring). I love this picture because it really captures Bink's personality...always curious and looking for something to get into...and adorable. It helps his case that he's adorable.
Now here's the twist...in the mornings I listen to a great country station on my way to work. Every Friday the DJ asks listeners to call in and talk about what they got right that week. At first I thought it was really cheesy, but as I listened to people sharing things they were proud of (even really small things), it grew on me. I tried to think of something I'd gotten right this week. I could come up with a huge list of things I did wrong.
I called the baby by the dog's name (and our dog's name isn't even a human name...it's Buttons). I lost my temper with K over something stupid she hadn't done the way I wanted. I hadn't spent enough time with my husband, instead trying to cram a few hours of sleep in during the evenings before the Bink gets up at 1:30 a.m. like clockwork. Unreturned emails and phone calls. A to do list with nothing crossed off.
It was really easy to come up with things I didn't do well. It was a lot harder to come up with things I did right. So I'm going to ask you all each week, what did you get right? It doesn't matter how small, sometimes you need to celebrate putting your shoes on the right feet or remembering to brush your hair before you leave for work (or maybe its just me).
Here's what I got right...This week I started back on Weight Watchers. I've spent the last nine months hoping that the baby weight would come off with me just eating junk food and not exercising. Surprisingly, it hasn't. So, Monday morning I weighed myself, cringed a little, and wrote it down in a notebook. I've tracked everything I've eaten this week and while I haven't been perfect I've been pretty good. And I'm down a pound so far. I'll weigh in again Monday and I'm hoping for continued success.
So leave a comment and tell me what you got right this week! Or tell me how adorable Bink is getting into trouble in the picture above, I'll take either!
