Have we lost the reason why we make scrap books in the first place?

Howdy all!

Happy Thanksgiving, Canadians!

It's been awhile hasn't it. I tell you life is good though and I am enjoying every minute of it.

I am pretty much back to my healthy self. I still get chunks that want to choke me though LOL
Doc says I should be prefect (is there such a thing) by November. I hope so. I never in my wildest dreams thought that sewer gas could harm a person in such a way and for so long.
I get lots of fresh air which, as of late, has been wet, but it helps. It's been raining all day and night and would be great if it rained all day LOL Selfish yes, less people on the road, less accidents, shorter queues, less people spreading germs LOL It's flu season & H1N1 season here and come to think of it none of us has been sick yet.

I finally finished reading all the blogs and emails.
Looks like a few more designers are leaving the scrap world and a few more are just giving up selling in stores and went back to giving out freebies when they can.
Times are tough for many and they just can't afford to buy stuff they don't really need (food and shelter being more important)
A few others just came right out and admitted that designing has taken over there lives so much that their families are being neglected. That is so so sad.

I've always thought that scrap booking was suppose to be a hobby of memories.
Have we lost the reason why we make scrap books in the first place?

If I miss out on scrapping I miss out, so be it, I won't lose any sleep over it. But if I missed out on my family I would regret it for the rest of my life. They are my world and my world is better for having them in it.

I was able to pick up Kim B's Colour Challenge swatch for October. I have been promised some personal time during this Thanksgiving long weekend which I hope to make something for this months 365 pages as I haven't done any yet and hopefully share what I make with you.

I haven't done a speed scrap yet cause the timing just doesn't equate with my free time which hasn't been much.
Here it is at 4:45 am. I fell asleep at 9:30 pm LOL and woke up at 3:35 am
Joe won't be home till 7 am and I have to go back to sleep before that or I ruin their day. 'Their' being Joe, Tyler and Lady. (This is what I have been told lately on Sat's LOL) I know they are up to something, time will tell. Hopefully, once they return we have to go to Grandma's, then to Joe's cousins, then shopping for some boots, then home for dinner by 5pm, eat by 6 pm, take Lady out for a walk at 7 pm and watch the sun go down and back home by 8:30 pm at the latest, do the dishes, watch a movie, have Tyler in bed and hopefully asleep by 10, then pass out myself. More then likely we may all crash in the living room watching a movie LOL
Busy, busy, busy.
Ah, life is beautiful!

Thanks for stopping in. Chat with you all later.
Enjoy your day.
