I Will Do It This Time!!

Well, I am going to do it this time. I have voiced my good intentions before and then not followed through, but this time WILL be the time that I actually begin to scrapbook! After a bittersweet hour of searching for a very specific picture of J. as a toddler, I have come to the conclusion that enough is enough and I need to get busy!! (By the way, it was bitter because I couldn't find the picture but sweet because I unearthed so many other precious memories.)

I would take a picture of my horrendous mess that I am facing, a la Spaghettipie, but I can't. My room is too messy for a photo and I would have to borrow Big D's computer to download it and he is is just easier to describe it. Under my unmade bed, I have all sorts of shoe boxes in varying size, color, and state of dilapidation containing piles of pictures that are just crying out to be either creatively framed in a acid free environment or thrown away because C.'s eyes are crossed (mild myopia as a preschooler) and Big D.'s head got cut off the top (he can't help that he is tall).

By the way, I did make that first crucial step towards following through. I found two scrapbooks on clearance and bought some paper and tape (acid free, of course). So off I go. But not to scrapbook. I have to clean my room first! And then some laundry. And then work on some Bible study. Sigh!
