Most of the time when I take pictures I spend a few minutes editing the pictures I put on here. I blur out the name of a city. I crop out busy background extra garbage. I crop in closer.
I play around with the color or use a setting that gives it a certain look.
I used to use picnic.com and now that isn't anymore.
For Christmas Ed got me Photoshop Elements and I have challenged myself to slowly dive into it and give it a try. But it is far more technical than the picnik thing I used before.
When picnik was no longer I heard rumor of pic monkey.com and so I have played around with that when I haven't had the time to figure out things on photoshop elements. Here are a few shots from the recent shower that I played around with.
Meanwhile, our morning was exhaustive. An early morning session with a trainer has me wondering if I will be able to move tomorrow. I also had a stretch band...you know the ones you use to build muscle...flip off my shoe and whack me in the face. Nice! It hurt but I seriously had tears from laughter. The sound had the trainer in shock.
And then we headed off to meet the surgeon who will be working on Henry in the near future. We had to wait in the waiting room for an hour, so when we finally met the dr. we were a bit annoyed. But he was easy to talk to, kind, and tender with Henry, and I feel as good as any mama would feel.
If I don't get Sydney down for a late morning nap we are in trouble. She won't nap for more than an hour and a half if she goes down after 12:30. So I guess my priority this summer will have to be getting home by 11:30 so she gets a good nap. Otherwise, the days will be VERY long. Because when she is up and cranky, I get nothing done. When a mama lives around nap, you don't question it. Just saying'. Because maybe the outing would be great but the mama is the one who deals with the aftershocks of veering off the nap routine. And most often, it isn't worth it.
Hope your Wednesday is a pleasant one. I hope you didn't get smacked in the face by a workout band. I hope you didn't have to keep two kids busy in a waiting room for over an hour. I hope your napper succumbs to the second try at a nap like I am hoping mine will. Because the day is only half over and there needs to be some productivity in my day or I go a little squirrelly.
