I’ve already thought about quitting.
Today is day 27, which means I’m not even a month in.
I’ve contemplated changing the rules.
I haven’t even done it for 1/12 of the time and I want to cheat.
Yesterday I worked in the evening, so my picture-taking-time was limited to the day, in a house, all by myself.
Today it’s raining, so it’s very dark, and we can’t go outside, and and and and. I have lots of excuses.
I think that the last two days, these two days when I really didn’t want to take pictures, have made me think it’ll be worth sticking it out.
There is just something about tiny little cars and kids playing with them. I got two shots that I really enjoy, and that will remind me of this phase of Alex’s life. And at the end of the day, that’s what it’s all about.
I won’t lie. There is a good chance I will make up my own Project 365 rules. I may just steal Michelle’s suggestion and do 365 pictures in a year that I love. That way I can look back and see the amazing pictures that really, truly, mean something to me.
For now? For now I’m sticking with it. At least one picture every day.
And they may be boring. They may be items around the house on a day when I don’t see Alex but for the rush of the morning before school. There may be more random flowers or things blooming. And there will certainly continue to be pictures of toys strewn around our house.
And there will certainly, certainly, be even more pictures of Alex this year than maybe any other year yet. It’s a good thing he’s so gosh darn cute.
