Why I Love eZimba

Today is day 100 of the Envisage 365 project. I had all these ideas in my head – I mean, sheesh, day 100 – kind of a big deal, right? The thing is, I was kind of in a smidge of a funk today and didn’t really do much. I got some coffee, I did Tae Bo, I sat on the floor in my office jamming to music while working. Same stuff I do regularly, I guess. Nothing really DAY 100 worthy.

One of my projects for the day though was to find a top to wear to Hubby’s company holiday party on Friday. Admittedly, I am not so enthused with this holiday party idea and here is why: It’s being held at a comedy club which is a 45 minute drive from our house (in perfect weather). We’ll arrive at 6:30 for appetizers (and I do not love bar food – and the day you see me gnawing on a chicken wing is the day you realize I’m stranded on a deserted island with no other food to eat) and the show is at 8. Sooooo, no dinner. Then, figure in the fact that I have a pretty whacked out sense of humor and I DON’T KNOW HUBBY’S CO-WORKERS. How much attention are they going to pay to the fact that I laugh loudest at the crudest jokes? I don’t know. ANYWAY, since it’s being held in a bar, I’m wearing jeans – but wanted a little something different to wear with them.

Hence the shopping trip.

Which led to my desperate picture snap in the fitting room.

I didn’t buy this shirt. I liked it though. This was the second runner up. My BFF can tell you I almost ALWAYS pick busy shirts with funky patterns. I’m not sure why.

So, here you have the iPhone photo opp. Then, I got home and funked it up with eZimba (and if you have an iPhone, this is so much fun because it’s free and you can do wild goofy stuff to your pics).

And here you’ve got abstract Sarah, which, I kinda like for the fact that holy cow, my lips are really red. Fun times.

So, It’s Been Fifty Days (And Other Hooey)

Today is day 50 of the Envisage 365 project (Y’all see that link to the right – you can click on it). I can’t believe it’s been 50 days already, and that I haven’t missed a day yet. I’m keeping my images in a few different places – the E365 blog, my Facebook, and Flickr. So many of the women involved in this project are amazing photographers – me? Not so much. But it’s been cool trying to define my day with a picture and already checking out the pictures from the past fifty days and remembering the past month and a half-ish.
In other drama, Pumpkin has taken to waking up each night at 3:30 a.m. and she doesn’t appear to really need anything: sometimes a diaper change (she wears a diaper or pull up at bed) and to be covered up with a blanket so she can go back to bed. HOW DO I MAKE HER STOP? Seriously, getting up at 3:30 a.m. means that I’m often awake for at least an hour following that. She isn’t teething. She doesn’t seem to be sick. It’s just DRIVING ME NUTS. So, if you have kids that sleep and like sleep, can you please tell me how you made that happen?
