quick hi ladies! been too busy to scrap much (or at all) since returning to work at the end of April I am slowly starting work on my friend's wedding album...waiting for some more pics for inspo first. I wanted to try to premake pages, but I just can't operate that way I need to put my foot down and DEMAND some me time...DH and I have been having some difficulties adjusting to routines/division of labor now that we have 2 kids and I am back to working.
it's very hard to do. I've had to pick what to do for my me time, and it's hard to be firm about it. I end up doing most of it between 10pm-2am, and that's killing me. so I feel your pain to some degree. but back when I was working with two kids, DH and I had a deal that I would get one weekend day a month for scrapbooking. maybe you could try something like that. does he have a hobby/interest that you can compromise with? he gets a day of golfing, you get a day of scrapping with the promise he will keep the kids away from you?
well his hobby is playing on his computer which he does ALL THE TIME, which is part of the problem on my end. that and I do the chores/necessary things before doing anything fun and he is the other way around. yeah, we need to work on that...but of course he doesn't think there is a problem b/c he is making out like a bandit in this current set up
How did I miss this post? I check in here all the time to see if anything is new!
It is good to see an update from everyone.
Things here are good, just busy of course. Jamie just started preschool and I am heartbroken lol. I miss him so much when he is gone. His first day was torture for me. I cried my heart out when I dropped him off. He is loving it though.
Allie is growing so fast, I feel like 2 years have zoomed by.
We found out baby 3 is a boy ( I knew it before the u/s though lol) and we are naming him Lucas William.
I haven't been scrapping much lately, been spending my free time ( ha, that's the 3 minutes at night before I fall asleep time) reading mostly.
Angie- aww another sweet boy. i have boy girl boy and it's so much fun. Cate definitely could not have handled a little sister at that point in time. Maybe if we go for #4 in a couple years we'll get another girl.
Gwen- I totally understand why u haven't gotten to scrap, but man the non scrapping stuff u are cranking out is awesome. Jack's room...amazing!!!
Charys- aww we miss u here too girly. Seems life got busy for a lot of us. We all started having more kids, etc etc etc. Hopefully with back to school will bring more time for all of us.
So update on us...dh ended up getting another job offer same day as the one that would have required for us to move out of state. We weighed the differences, pros & cons and the other offer which is only 15-20 minutes from us won. So he started that job a few weeks ago and it's been going well. It's 9 hr days and then half day fri if it's not an overtime week. So i'm thinking that will go over pretty well since i'll be able to do any of my dr appts and some errands on fri afternoons while he watches the kids.
Time is going so fast, still organizing/cleaning, getting ready for A to start 2nd yr of preschool in sept, trying to go through clothes figure out what they need, dr appts, enjoying the last bits of summer, planning for the fall etc.
A is 4 1/2, C is 2 and J is a few days shy of 6 months and already crawling so yeah they're giving me a run for my money!!! lol. well i'm sure there is plenty else to update u all on but i gotta run. hoping to get some scrapping done once A starts preschool again... was able to organize the boxes of memorabilia etc i will eventually scrap, so now it's divided by each child and some other things. I was able to organize some photos i plan on scrapping next too.
Hope all is well with everyone else & you're enjoying the last bits of summer!!!!
