It's Another Monday...Hold the Mania

I've just returned from a 4 day weekend of scrapbooking. I am exhausted. Hour after hour sitting in a chair and trying to be creative with my limited number of supplies is tiring! I brought all my supplies and I probably had a third of what everyone else had. In my defense, I've probably been doing it less than everyone else, too. I'm proud of my pages, however time consuming. I even had a massage while I was there. Mmmmm. I should make that a monthly event.

But I am glad to be home. I was missing Brian and the girls and to be honest, they weren't really feeding me often enough! Of course, some of that has to do with the baby, but still, if I start getting hungry, I start getting nauseated, and that's not the fun part. I had my own twin bed and sharing a room wasn't bad. Certainly better than sharing a bed with women you hardly know.

I had been begging Brian for an electric blanket for our bed so that I wouldn't get pneumonia every night during the winter season, and for Christmas, he delivered. Last night was the first night to use it. What a treat to turn that thing on and climb into bed with my magazine 30 minutes later and the bed was warm!!! I even turned it off in the middle of the night because I was downright hot. Maybe someday we can live in a house that is actually warm in the winter and cool in the summer...

I picked out fabric for my next quilting project and I hope to have it all completed by the first of May. I intend to take advantage of whatever surge of energy I have in this next trimester to get some quilting projects completed. After a brain-numbing weekend of scrapbooking, I am looking forward to a different challenge.

So glad you had a great time. I resent the comment on sleeping with women you don't really know. I thought we did pretty well!!! HAHAHA!!!!

I put that little snippet in there for you, Jackie! Of course, we did pretty well, but no one wishes for that kind of arrangement!

Scrapbooking is one of the main guilt-ridden areas of my life. I have almost an entire book devoted to my 1stborn's babyhood, and a wealth of supplies either purchased or received as gifts...and I NEVER scrapbook. I didn't even have the excuse of having a BUNCH of kids - by the time #2 came along, I already didn't do anything!

The only thing I can hope for is that the QUANTITY of our pictures will lesson any hurt feelings that may result due to the lack of QUALITY of any scrapbooks...

Oh, Lindsay...I potentially have an answer to your problem. It has some kinks to work out, but perhaps we can all keep our fingers crossed!

I know! I know! But I will just shut up and keep my fingers crossed. REALLY crossed. I would love to learn to sew better than I do, and quilting produces such beautiful results. And it's useful!!!! I could get rid of all the 70's polyester quilts I keep because my husband's grandmother made them, and have some that I wouldn't mind showing to company. Scrapbooking is another craetive hobby that I NEVER do, but would have a problem with as I don't OWN a working camera. I've got to remedy that.

Just you better keep those "70's polyester quilts" your husband's grandmother made! Some of us didn't GET a quilt from her!

I'd never throw them away!!!!! I just would have some pretty ones that I could use for company. Those have been used until they aren't fit for much but picnics on the ground. My children love them.
