What I'm usually doing when I'm supposed to be doing something else... If I'm on my computer, I'm probably playing with photoshop. Recently, I found some really old (1880s!!) cabinet photos in an old photo album, in an old chest full of stuff that had belonged to my grandmother-in-law. A lot of them were faded and cracked, but there was one of a family that wasn't too bad, just a bunch of small white spots where the image had flaked away from the paper. So, I scanned it and touched it up, playing with it just for fun. You can see a before-and-after in the image below. And if you look across the bottom of my screen in the image, you can see that there are also a couple games at the end of my dock. I try not to spend too much time on those, but it seems like a few minutes of playing turns into a few hours before I know it. If I'm not on my computer, I'm probably reading (most likely on my kindle). This is my biggest distraction; I've lost entire days! When I'm reading a book or series, I hate to stop. So I pretty much read every single moment until I finish. I can even get a little obsessive; just ask my family. I tend to snap when interrupted. Oops.

I loved playing softball as a child. I wasn't very good at it, but I always had fun. Doesn't this look like a girl having fun? But when I got a little older, I got a little better. I even made the all-star team. I guess practice and repetition really does help. Which is why I really should be writing and reading every day. I guess I'd better get back to it...
