Checking In

I don't really have anything to say. Hubby is watching football, kidlets are in bed, and I'm left with some time to myself.

Today I managed to get the laundry down to manageable piles. I'd like to say it's all done but I can't. It's going to take more than one Sunday afternoon to catch up. I'll just have to be satisfied with clean towels and a variety of clean clothes to choose from for the upcoming week.

I also mopped the floor. May not sound like much but believe me when I say you can't believe the difference!

Once I had the house in order, I decided it was time to catch up on my journaling. I've been scrapbooking steadily over the last few weeks but none of the pages were complete because they were missing journaling blocks. I am a firm believer in journaling when it comes to my scrapbooks and do very few pages without at least a token entry to explain the who, where, when, and why depicted in my pictures.

Historically this hasn't been much of a problem because I tend to do most of my scrapping at home. Well, that's not necessary true anymore. My Tuesday night scrapbooking date with my mom is at her house, not mine. So I often do the pages and leave room for journaling. The problem is I don't come right home and complete the pages. I set them aside with good intentions I usually fail to follow through on.

Well, today I did journaling for my oldest son's first year of basketball, a fishing trip, and Halloween. Quite a wide range of topics there but I think I managed to pull it off.

Now I just need to get the pages of my desk and into their respective albums...
