I have scrapbooking on the brain since I got back from my getaway this weekend. I keep hoping to sneak off downstairs to work for a few minutes. It hasn’t happened yet but I am still hopeful.
On the other hand I have done almost a full week of homeschool with all three kidos! That hasn’t happened due to illness & various other distractions for a couple of weeks!
Right now working on my pictures feels like an a MASSIVE project that just sits there waiting.
I often ask my kids “how do you eat an elephant?” They then give me 1 of two looks.
1. Confused—they haven’t heard my speech about having too much to do to catch up and feeling overwhelmed. They want to give up and not try but I won’t let them.
2. Oh mom—not that speech. Complete with eye rolling(I’ve never caught this in a picture!) They’ve heard it but it hasn’t sunk in yet so I have to repeat it again. Break your project down in to small pieces and then start working on one of them. Just take a small BITE!
I am basically 5 years behind with pictures. That means I either have pictures in a box, slide in album, or on my computer that aren’t out where the kids can enjoy them. Just slightly frustrating. These weekends where I go away let me get our vacations done but not much else.
So instead of packing my supplies away I took them to the basement so that I can work at odd moments. Even if I only do a few pages a month, that is better than doing nothing.
I am going to report here in a month—April 23rd. Accountability is good right? Feel free to check on me if I don’t report! I am not setting a specific goal but a general one just to work on some pages. I also plan to put up some simple layouts that I like to do over and over. But for now I am going to get to work.
What projects do you have that are elephants & what is the next BITE you are going to take?
