So, yesterday was the big day. Scrapbooking with the girls!!! We got off to a little bit of a late start, as none of us can seem to be on time. I had packed way too much stuff, again. And I bought way too much stuff, again.
I had a little bit of a setback when all of my creativity left me, but I just looked at a couple of magazines and came up with a really cool layout. Not much like any of my usual pages, but I LOVE IT! It took me way too long to do, and only features two pictures. But did I say how much I LOVE IT? Yeah, if I told you I’d take a picture and post it, I know you wouldn’t believe me, so I won’t. Trust me though, it’s good.
We got some serious scrappin’ done! For lunch they provided ham or turkey sandwiches, with chips, cookies and snacks. Olive Garden soup, salad and breadsticks were brought in for dinner, then strawberries,cookies, hot fudge, two different kinds of cake, and angel food or dessert. I was surrounded by chocolate and diet cokes, the two things I’ve totally given up for this 40 day fast. It was hard, but I didn’t cave. We scrapped, ate and laughed until 10 p.m. and boy was I tired! I love you girls, and we have to do it again very soon. The future of our childrens’ heritage being documented depends on it.
I came home to a house that was a wreck! Obviously everyone had a great time while I was gone, so I’ve spent most of the afternoon after church picking up and tackling the laundry pile. Boring! Brooke went with a friend to the mall, and then sleep over at her house. The boys went with Brian to Grammie and Grandpa’s to work on race cars. I’ve been flying solo doing this cleaning thing, and finally took a break to fill all my loyal readers in on the excitement of my life. (Hey Mom and Dad, Love You!)
Well, my kitchen’s still a disaster, the dishwasher needs unloaded and then loaded again with what is in the sink. Counters and floors need cleaned. My work is never done….
