1 Second Everyday: November 26 - December 27

December is crazy for everyone.  I get that.  But if you work at a toy store in December, it is a special kind of crazy.  The month started with singing, dancing and music at the North BurLINKton talent show that I helped organize and volunteered at.  Being backstage with the artists was a lot of fun. The event raised over $600.  The money paid for Christmas dinner for many families.  Other highlights from the month include dinner with friends where we promised to get together more or at least plan one joint camping trip this summer.  We celebrated my brother Jon's 50th birthday with a surprise party.  Other celebrations included cheering on Charlie at his Christmas Concert and bursting with pride when Josh finally passed his G1 licence.  Now to get him behind the wheel!  I counted down the days until Kenzie finished writing her exams and all  five members of my family were once again under the same roof. She worked so hard those last few weeks.  I am so proud of the way she handled herself.  And oh yeah, it was Christmas too.  It was a month of awesome celebrations spaced between days of getting shit done.  I am also sure that without this project most of it would have passed by in a blur.

1 Second a Day - October - November

Pumpkins, Halloween and road hockey put to the music of Kiss.  It was quite a month.  

A Year Of Seconds

When I gave up my Picture a Day project, I was ready to.  The daily commitment of taking a picture and writing about it was growing thin.  I began to feel I had captured and commented of just about every aspect of our lives.  
But then I missed it.  Not the work of doing it, but I missed having a record of days.  So when I saw people recording their daily seconds, I thought that this might be a something that I could handle.  I'm so glad I did.  
Here is 365 of our seconds smooshed together.
