Confession: School Kits

I have to relieve this guilty feeling I've had since Laura's post. ;)

I was inspired to work on my BH CK KOTM School kits tonight. I figured I can watch my TV shows (Rules of Engagement, 2 & a Half Men, Mike & Molly, Hawaii Five O) while putting them together better. When I say better I mean they are all in the right spots in my albums with a few things tossed in the page protectors along with their school pics but the actual pieces of the kits?? they weren't put together at all. I figured I can take the first step & get something going. Of course once I started I wanted to get more done than I was prepared for. I didn't have a lot of pics printed that I could use, just a few odds & ends, & while I was a bit discouraged, I figured BABY STEPS.

It's not going to get done all in one night.

I'm not that far behind really. I mean, Marissa's in 4th grade & Gianna's in 1st grade. While that's not really behind, especially in Gianna's case, I just wish I had recorded some memories better.

I hope to print some pics out & get moving with this. As much as I love the idea of this kit, I don't like seeing it not used to it's potential. I do that too much. I have good intentions but tend to get off track.

And in case you're wondering I'm back to working on the journaling for my 2009 Project Life kit. The pics are all taken & printed, all that's missing is a few months worth of journaling. I'm happy to say I'm up to Oct. 2009 in journaling (believe me it was a lot worse than that!!). I've been working on it while watching TV or while the girls are doing their homework.

Again I say, BABY STEPS.

Now that I've confessed I feel a little better.....the guilt isn't weighing me down to bad....HA!!

can't wait to see your school kits! When the new ones come out, I'm getting them for sure!
Glad you're getting caught up on the 365, better late than never!
in 2011 I'm going to do the digital version. I think it'll save a lot of time!

I'm not that familiar with these kits but I'm totally feeling your scrapper's guilt. I know you'll get them done and I can't wait to see when you do. I need a push on my kids school books. a big push!
