ten on ten: four. ten. thirteen.

Another month. Another ten on ten. Another lack of any. other. post. from me. My excuse is the same. We've been busy. And I've been lazy.

Last week was Spring Break. We didn't go away. But we filled each day with a family field trip. I guess we had ourselves a good ole-fashioned staycation. And as much as I'd like to say we jetted off to Colorado to ski. The ballerinas fell into bed each night exhausted. Said "THANK YOU!" for the daily dose of fun at least twice a day. And on Sunday they both exclaimed, "That was the best Spring Break ever!" 

I could have blogged each day of that Spring Break. There were definitely memories worth preserving. But I was cheating. On my big girl camera. I left it at home (or in the car) 95% of the week. And like thousands of others. I used my camera phone to record it all. And Instagram (mawlovesbsd on Instagram) to share it. So much quicker and easier. Like using the microwave instead of the oven. 

Is Instagram the new blog? Are blogs going to wind up at Good Will perched next to all the typewriters?

Well...as long as there's a tenth of the month, I'll still be here. I enjoy this project too much to give it up. And it's a good reason to dust off my Lightroom skills and keep them from getting too rusty.

Today was a typical Wednesday.

Drag self out of bed...

Get ballerinas off to school...

Get daily dose of torture...

Do the dishes...

Water the flowers (since we've bypassed Spring and fast-forwarded right to summer) ...

Take a shower...

Welcome ballerinas back home from school...

Get homework done...

Do chores... (she wants to earn $22 to buy four rolls of duct tape to "make crafts.")

Get ready for dance...

Practice what you learned at dance in all inappropriate places...

If you'd like to see what a more exciting day looks like, check out what other Ten on Ten'ers were up to here.

Until next month...
