More Time and Space...


Is what I wish I had for things like scrapbooking, organizing my house, trying out new recipes, and making other little random crafts. (Val, you just had to add bows to my long list of to do's didn't you! *U*) I finally got to finish another couple of pages for Kate's scrapbook. Justin came home early, Zach was playing outside, and Kate decided to take a three hour nap this afternoon. I am 6 months behind, and cringe at the thought of even being behind. Not only am I behind on one, but two. What you start for one, you start for the other, otherwise the guilt will be felt when they grow up and ask, "Where are my pictures?" I can't have that now can I?

I don't even have kids in school or extracurricular activities, and I am already feeling the stress of being "SuPeRmOm." The kind that can juggle everything that is on her plate and all at the same time. Be in 5 different places in one hour and have time for a bathroom break. Cook dinner, feed a baby, and have the house picked up by the time Justin gets home. My type A personality is having a hard time coping with it all.

What's even better is I use the excuse of "Oh when I get a house and have an extra room to leave my projects out in, I will be on top of it all." or even better "When the kids are in school, I will have some extra time to be able to put towards things like this." Could I be more right here, or just extremely far off?

The bad news is that I don't think it gets any easier, and the good news is the only one who really cares if I get it all done on time is me. SO much for my so called list of "To Do's." At least I have good intentions...

Those are such cute pages. Good job on staying up to date. I think your one of those few moms who have done that. So I take my hat off to you. Have fun doing it, and all your other "To Do's" you have!

Ash!!! Your family is so darling! I can't believe I have not talked to you in so long! Thanks for the b-day message. I am probably the worst friend when it comes to returning phone calls and blogging. I just need to be better at it...end of story. I am so impressed at all the things you get done. You are way ahead of me. Have not even started bella's scrapbook. So you can feel better about yourself. Anyway, I love you and hope to talk soon! Mykelle

your pages are so cute. keep up the good work, I'll be thinking of you when I get everything out to start a page and then just put it all back and accomplish nothing. You are way more dedicated then the rest of us.

Hey Ashley and Justin,

The girls and I are looking at your blog. Wow! I am amazed! Can you fly out to teach me how to do it? Justin, we love your long hair pictures....the first thing that comes to mind is KRAMER from Seinfeld! We love the video of Kate at the end. Lauren can't wait to watch her do it in person! Zach looks so grown up. We miss you guys!
Love, Britt

HAHAHA - sorry to say, but it only gets worse!! So get ready to feel the guilt even more!! Did you know that you can have your blog turned into a book....like a journal type of thing...hard bound and everything. I'm thinking I might have to resort to that being my journal/scrapbook. Something to think about to ease the guilt! ;)-

Sorry! That last comment was me, Chiara, I was logged into my cousins account trying to help her set up her blog.
