My big plan to take back my basement and start working on albums has been an epic failure.
The first weekend that my parents were gone, all I had the energy to do was zone out on the couch catching up on Outlander (ooh, fantastic show, by the way). I got my day off approved, so I had grand plans for the Friday and Saturday, and then halfway through my course on Thursday, my throat started hurting. By the time I got home, I was running a fever and feeling generally miserable. Instead of scrapping, I spent all of Friday and Saturday sleeping.
Since then, we’ve been busy with the mundane things of everyday life – laundry, cleaning the house, getting groceries. On top of that, there’s been some big happenings we’ve had to fit in – finishing our changes and upgrade selections for the interior of our new house, a change in my responsibilities at work which has meant a lot of extra time working in the evenings, and my husband applying for a new position. It seems scrapbooking falls further and further to the bottom of my list of priorities every week.
I had every intention of taking last Saturday as a scrapping day, but I just couldn’t get motivated to do it. I’d sit down and put cards in a layout, then get distracted by something else. I think I got all of 3 layouts done.
Between now and Christmas, our schedule is getting pretty jam packed, so I’m sure there won’t be a lot of time for working on my albums. Hopefully, Santa gets my PL wishlist and brings me some goodies, and maybe that’ll get me kickstarted for the New Year!
