The truth of the matter is I just haven't had much going on, lol. I've been scrapping, but a lot of it is stuff I can't share yet. I do have one layout I can share, though. It's for this month's prompt at Forward Progress. My awesome friend Sasha has now joined us with the monthly designs, too, so go check us out if you get a chance!
Journaling: It’s a simple question, really. Yet it’s one that took me awhile to figure out. I’m so used to defining my desires by my family – what I want is for my husband and my children to be happy, etc. I guess there within is my answer. I want to have my own hobbies and skills without neglecting my family. As much as I love being a mommy and wife, I need to have interests and skills beyond changing diapers and kissing boo-boos. It isn’t easy to make myself part of my priorities while still taking time to play with my kids, snuggle with tony and keep the house in order. Clearly balance is what I need. Balance is what I want.
I've been trying to jump on the Photo A Day thing. Notice I said try. We're just two weeks into the new year, and i've already missed two days... yikes! In my defense, they're both Wednesdays. Wednesdays are my long work days, and I leave super early and get home sometimes after 9pm, so I keep forgetting (and my best subjects are already asleep!). I'm not planning to scrap every week of photos - i'm just doing it for fun documentation, so I guess i'm not going to stress about missed days.
It's COLD here. Like 20 degrees, teeth chattering, lips turning blue cold. I just wish we would get some snow to at least make the cold worth it!
Hope everyone is having a great week! I promise to try not to be such a lazybutt blogger this next time around ;-)
