Sofia 365: Day 305

Day 305: 1.9.13

If I were to describe this day in one word, it would probably be “shredding”.

Now before your mind wanders off to wonder what that could mean, let me explain…

In an effort for this family to go “paperless” this year, we have started going through all of our old paperwork that we have been carrying around for years, (my boyfriend, Jason’s, having the majority of that load), and getting rid of it.

This has actually turned into quite an entertaining activity for Sofie, who has taken to putting things into our little paper shredder. In fact, she spent over an hour at it today. And hey, I’m not complaining! If it’s going to keep her busy and happy, I’m all for it. Plus! We’re getting rid of all of our paper clutter around the house, it feels pretty good. Soon enough, we’ll have an easy, paperless, streamlined life, and I think the environment will thank us for it.

Other than that, my first acting workshop/class was tonight! So I went out for a couple of hours this evening to attend. The members of the class were all introduced today and we did the usual “first-day-of-class-getting-to-know-each-other” type of stuff. I have to admit, I did have a good time though. It’s been a while since I’ve been a part of any sort of “class” or organized group of people like that, it took today’s experience to kind of remind me of how much I missed it. It’s nice to feel like I’m a part of a group outside of my family and working realm…
Looking forward to what we’ll do next week!

Well, I guess that’s it for today! I have a lot that I’m planning for this blog, especially in terms of expanding my writing and what I cover here, and I think it’ll be good, so I’m going to be working on that the next couple of days as well. Hope you all are able to stay tuned for that!

Until then, have a good night!

Sofia 365: Day 304

Day 304: 1.8.13

The rain has been crazy today. It’s been pouring for hours tonight, and no signs of stopping. On the bright side, at least we live on a hill!

Today, I had my very first audition for a commercial! It was a little nerve wracking, but I think I did okay! Had to recite a few lines to a camera, and even fell on my face a couple of times (purposely for the audition of course…). Never thought my clumsiness would serve useful before!

Well, I should hopefully find out in a few days if they pick me, the anticipation is gonna kill me!

We’ll see…

Almost forgot to take a photo of Sofie, she was so excited for bath time! But here she is in her jammies with her pink makeup brush too. 🙂

Sofia 365: Day 303

Day 303: 1.7.13

We are just trooping along aren’t we? One week into the New Year, and I’m feeling pretty good! Do I still have a huge pile of work I need to do? Yes, but I’m going to feel good doing it goshdarnit!

It was a bit of a dreary day today, didn’t really get out of the house to do anything until after noon. Mostly spent the morning eating bagels we got the past weekend and just hanging out. Morning are always so slow for me, I need to work on that… Perhaps I just need to suck it up and start going to bed earlier and waking up earlier, like I had “resolved” to do last year.

Maybe this year I’ll actually make it happen? I mean, Sofie was up before ME this morning! I feel like I should be the one waking her up…

Well, the rest of the day went pretty well. Sofie did a little grocery shopping, but probably shouldn’t have done it while Sofie was hungry, because she was crying for food the whole time (should have eaten that breakfast I gave to her!). But, on the bright side, it was one of the more fast and efficient shopping trips I’ve had because of it.

Once we got home, Sofie and I had a late lunch, hung out some more, did a little work in between when I could, then had an early-ish dinner since Sofie was without a nap all day again. This time, she was falling asleep at the table. Jason and I couldn’t help but chuckle watching her, it’s so cute how hard she tries to stay awake!

So, I tempted her with a bath, only before I was able to coax a few pictures out of her, then I got her clean and cozy and she was asleep in no time.
This early to bed thing with Sofie the past few days have actually been pretty great for me, I’ve managed to get a lot done and organized. I should probably try to keep this up, no good having a baby up at 11 o’clock at night! (On the other hand, just cause she’s going to bed early, doesn’t mean I should be staying up late! I need to become a morning person…)
