Back to normal

It's been an adjustment getting back on schedule with the girls going back to school. We had a threat of snow for Wed. which was the day they were due back in school & thanks to all the angry frustruated mothers cursing Mother Nature we were lucky to not get the snow. I was going to send the girls to school no matter what!! lol!! It's been so frickin' cold here!! Yesterday it was around 17 degrees here & now they say by the weekend it might reach the 50's--heat wave!! Crazy Mother Nature...maybe she's menopausal!!

I managed to get my posts on 2Peas thanks to Crystal & have the urge to start scrapping again. Unfortunately the urge to take down the Christmas decorations is a more desparete urge so I'm gonna start on that today. Because I'm so anal I take pics of all the decorations. This is not simply because I have nothing better to do like my older sister tends to say about me but that's a different story all-together & will have it's own dedicated post but I digress....The reason I take pics of all my decorations is :

1. My memory is shot & due to all the decorations that fill the main floor of my house I need to remember where to put everything next year (with a few minor tweaks here & there).

2. Every year I say I'm going to scrap about my favorite decorations/ornaments.

3. I try to improve my photography skills (or lack of). This will hopefully be the year I manage to take a good pic of the tree all lit up.

Now that I've put it in print I hope that will force me to make that scrap page that I've been meaning to do for the last 2 or 3 years! I'm not the type of person to make resolutions only because I never keep them...but I would like to get more caught up on my scrapping. There are days when I'm just so over whelmed & get nothing done. I'm off to attack the house, or the scrapping, or the laundry....nevermind I just know that I'm going to attack something!! lol!!!

We're still in vacation mode here. The kids don't go back to school till Monday, and I haven't one time said that I was ready for them to go back. I did the same thing, take pictures of the decorations, for the exact same reasons you did. To remember where everything goes and to scrapbook the decorations. Well, nothing will look the same next year because I bought a 7 1/2 foot tree and that's going to be the Disney tree. Good luck with whatever you find time to do!
