I was rocking Jack before bed, and listening to my older three play "monster" in Andrew's room ... and I started thinking ... on any day that I have it tentatively marked down on my list to scrapbook, I'm always longing for the minutes that my kids are at school and younger two are napping, or rushing through bedtime just to get that time to scrapbook. and what am I scrapbooking? those same kids! I just wonder about it sometimes, am I focusing on the wrong things? sometimes I just want them to let me scrapbook, and I want to ignore their needs. what's up with that? guess I'm just feeling some guilt for wanting time to just be with myself to try to create something. I just find it ironic that what I'm working on is all about those people I'm trying to shake off.
but seriously, is anyone else like that? do you long for the quiet time away from everyone in your family just to scrapbook? or do you truly enjoy the time with them, and you scrapbook when it makes sense for the whole family?
don't get me wrong, scrapbooking almost always takes a backseat here. I just get resentful every so often (and it's not that often, but it happens) when I can't seem to get quality time.
they're all asleep right now, and DH isn't home. I'm RUNNING to my scrapbook corner now, look for pages later, I hope.
