    Default Uh oh... time to scrap?

    Where did it go? LOL

    I am running out of scrapping time, now that Luke is bigger and doesn't sleep as much LOL. Plus, it is warmer so we are outside a lot.

    When you do find time to scrap, when is it? Do you set aside a specific time for you or do you wait for the kids to go to bed? What works best for you?

    I usually wait until the kids are all asleep, around 8-9, but the last few weeks I have went to bed at the same time!

    I try to scrap during nap times or after they go to bed. I also have to factor in schoolwork and exercise. Not enough time in the day. :/

    No, there isn't! I usually make time to scrap. Even if it means I lose out on sleep. I have been so tired lately though that I just go to bed as soon as the kids fall asleep. DH is building a new back porch/deck and we are spending a lot of our time out there. The sun is zapping me I think. He works nights and leaves for work around 4 pm. If I can get the older two to play quietly or watch a movie while Luke naps I try to fit in a layout or a card. The older two go to bed at 8, so if I get Luke down then as well ( and I don't crash) I stay up until 11 or so playing.

    I also try to fit daily time in to read. Reading and Scrapping, those are my only two ME things and if I don't fit them in , I lose my mind. LOL

    Oh reading, how I miss it. The only thing I have been reading lately are chapters for my classes. Which are no fun!! I did re-read The Hunger Games before I went to see the movie the other day, and I am itching to read the next 2 again. I still haven't read the new book to The Lying Game series! Or the Pretty Little Liars! AH! I may have to take a break from school after I get my Associates at the end of the year and read and catch up on my favorite things! I will be changing schools, so hopefully that will buy me some "me" time before the next school year. My DH likes to bond with my brother and his brother on the PS3 on Sunday and Monday nights, so that usually gives me some free time to scrap, if I am not doing school work or watching my fave shows. I can't miss a second of The Voice! (or Secret Life of the American Teenager..what? how old am I?!)

    Once a month I get together with my two girlfriends and we scrap. Otherwise it's nights after the kids are in bed. I'm so tired though I usually crash!

    I am jealous too Ashley. I don't have anyone to scrap with anymore. My SIL stopped scrapping ( and now lives 400 miles away) and my cousin doesn't have time to scrap anymore. Maybe one day we will get to scrap together again though.

    I don't have anyone to scrap with either. I remember when we used to have VCs all the time and those were sooo fun! I wish everyone would come back so we could have our awesome scrap board again!

    I love my monthly scrap night. It's two other ladies and myself. It keeps me sane!

    I'd love to do a VC! Why is the board so slow? I used to lurk when it was fairly busy, so many people barely come around anymore.
