I want to scrapbook!

That's what I want to do !

I am tired of fixing up the house.

I am tired of walking into a house full of clutter.

I want to just sit down at my crop table , have everything organized

and just start creating.

I want to take about a week off from the store , and recharge.

I want to take my son to the park and play .

I want to go on a bike ride with Josh.

I don't want to hear my son say " You like the store more then me "

I don't want to hear my son say " how come we can't go to the park after school"

I want to feel like I am doing the right things.

Trying to run a business, is it worth all the hours ?

Trying to do things at the house, will it ever end?

Trying to be a great friend, what makes a great friend?

Not complaining , well except I miss scrapbooking so much . I see everyone around me creating , I love seeing it . How do you balance it , when you work at the store all day , then come home and do more work for the store . Then work on the house , spend some time with Josh (which is getting the short end lately). Where is the time for me?

Doesn't sound good I know .

Well on to the new day....maybe I will start figuring this all out.

  1. OK, let's see, how many more weeks to Rehobeth?? How many more weeks where Rollie gets to scrap with some of her girlfriends for a weekend?? Oh, Lord, well it is 13 weeks and 2 days till our weekend together- and getting to fill one of my life's dream-LOL and wink- so that does seem like awhile but I know that it is sooner to Rehobeth and your week's vacation with your family.
    Big hugs to you, honey. I know you will be so proud of your home when it is done. The feeling of accomplishment will take over and you will feel so much better. But, right now, vent and whine. It's OK. That's what girlfriends are here for. To listen and understand. We are here. Love ya, Maria

    hey there girlfriend . . .sometimes we bite off more than we can chew. you know . . .why do we decide to reconstruct our homes, while we know we will be putting in long hours at our businesses, and when the weather finally warms up so that we can enjoy time with our kids outside? and then there are the spouses too? don't they also feel like they are getting shorthanded too? so why do we do these things to ourselves and those we love? Because we want it all!!!! and we want to be everything to everyone!! so . . .when you feel the need to just say no - then do it! and take time for those you love and for the things you want to do. sometimes it might cost us (like having to pay someone to handle the store for a few extra hours or a day or so) but in the end you will be a better person for it. Recharge those batteries - take time for YOU and yours too! your friend, d
