Back To Reality

 Pretty Flowers
(This photo has nothing to do with anything, but I took it the other day and I think it's really pretty)

Today is my first day back at work in 5 months. Ahhhhh!!!!

I almost feel like I forget how to work. Not really...but kind of. 

Back in May, my husband and I finished our work on the film ParaNorman and had an incredible 3 months off together, visiting his family in England, taking a road trip around France and Italy, flying to Cyprus for a week, then NYC, then seeing my family in Pennsylvania and then home. It was a trip of a lifetime, though I plan on having another few of those in my life...one was not enough to satisfy my waderlust. (You can see more about that trip here.)

My husband returned back to work in August to get started on the next film, while I was not needed back yet and stayed at home. I made myself a list of projects that I wanted to get accomplish and tried my best to cross-off as many as I could. While I didn't get to everything, here is what my list looks like now:

- Put together a photo album from trip
- Work on blog
- Sell stuff on Ebay
- Paint picture frames and hang above bed
- Clean and seal new tile in kitchen
- Work on Wedding Album
- Organize closet
- Deep clean upstairs and downstairs windows and sills
- Finish editing trip photos
- Dye old jeans and black dress to restore color
- Register new health insurance 
- Clean/Organize garage
- Read photography book
- Paint guest bathroom cabinet
- Sew pillows and work through "SEW ME!" pile of repairs
- Hang framed photos along stairwell
- Develop old box of film I found
- Catch up on filing
- Hang large mirror in foyer
- Read at least 2-3 books

I guess all in all, I did okay. I'm embarrassed to admit that, even 2 years after our wedding, I have yet to do anything with the photos. Ugh! I really need to focus on that. 

As for everything else, it will get done in due time.  Now I am back in the fast-paced, and often crazy, world of film making. Time to get my head back in the game of reality!!! 

With that said, I am so thankful for the summer I just had. It was such a gift and I feel so, so lucky to have had it. It makes all those long hours at work worth it, in the end. 

Wish us luck on the next project!!
