Friday Fill-Ins

1. I'm so very tired, I'm wired, my head won't stop spinning, I hope I get some sleep tonight.

2. Why do I have lots of things I need to get done and not one ounce of motivation to get them done.

3. How does this world work anyway?

4. Every morning I put socks on my feet.

5. I consider myself lucky because I have the two most precious girls in the world.

6. One day, we'll see more tolerance in this world.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to the girls sleepover party, tomorrow my plans include hanging out with a friend, and Sunday, I want to spend time cleaning the house with the girls.

The cutest little conversation...

I just overheard the cutest little conversation while the girls were in their room being made to clean it. It went like this:

Emily - Amber, can you get me that laundry hamper over there I don't want to walk over this pig die to get to it.
Amber - Pig die? you mean pig sty mom says pig sty.
Emily - what's a sty?
Amber - I don't know.

It was the cutest I couldn't help but giggle listening outside their door. I guess they are listening to me when I freak out about the condition of their room. HeHe. Maybe one day instead of just listening it'll one day sink in for them.

One Little Word : FUN

Word #45 over on the One Little Word blog is Fun. Here's my page.

Effer Dare #8

I completed Dare 8 over on the Dares blog. The challenge was to scrap everyday. Here's what I came up with:

Our Family Day Weekend

We had the most wonderful three day weekend. We not only celebrated family day on Monday, but the whole weekend long. It was so much fun to just hang out with the girls and have fun. We started Friday night with Amber's 1st annual valentines pyjama party. She planned the whole thing and wouldn't let Emily and I in the living room while she set it up. We played games and read a book together. It was so cute. She even wrote a little speech welcoming us to the event. Saturday was spent hanging out with Nana and Poppa, skating and going out for dinner for Valentines Day. Then Emily planned her idea of an evening. We drew pictures, read a story and played a game. Sunday we went skating, went out for brunch and then went into the city to see a movie with Grandpa Wayne. And then Monday we went out for lunch and swimming with Nana. It was so much fun watching the girls in the water again. They are getting more and more confident in the water. I really enjoyed the whole weekend. You know, it seems I am getting better and better at trying to just relax and have fun with the girls instead of always worrying.

2 Peas Friday Blogger Challenge

Today's challenge question: What is one thing you feel you do best in this hobby?

When I think about scrapbooking there are so many different things I think of.
I think of the feelings I have inside when I create.
I think of my excitement at being able to document my girls lives.
I think of my abilities to really share myself on the pages I create all about me.
I think of the inspiration I get from color.
I think of the excitement the girls get looking at pages about themselves.
I think of my love for journaling.
I think of the fun I've had learning how to digital scrapbook.
I think of my love of Photoshop.
I think of my love of taking pictures.
I think of the fun I have completing scrapbooking challenges from my favorite blogs.

The think I think I do best in this hobby is that I really share myself on my pages.
I love to journal.
I journal straight from the heart.
I journal what's really on my mind.
I journal about the good and the bad.
I journal so that my girls will remember the stories behind the photographs.
I journal so people who see my pages can know the real me.

What's in my head this morning...

I am feeling very stressed today. Like I can't do anything right and like I'm trying to keep my head above the water stuck in a current in the middle of the ocean with no land in sight. I keep thinking that as I get older things will get easier, that I'll be able to manage things so much better. Feels like the older I get the more out of control everything around me gets. I have so much I need to gain control of, so much I need to figure out and sort out. Don't know where to start or how to follow through with anything. Feels like I am so weak. Why can't I be the woman I want and achieve the things I want? Why can't I be stronger? I have turned into someone I never wanted to be - someone I am not proud of, but how do I change? Where do I begin? My girls deserve so much more. I need to get it together. For them. I need to give them so much more. They deserve so much more.
