I was inspired by another Pinterest page.  I have another one I want to scraplift soon!  Hopefully I will have time to work on that sometime this weekend.  This was a page that was just really precious to scrapbook.  And guess what!?  I'm almost done scrapping 2011!!!  Yeah!!  I probably have around 10 more pages to scrap, but that's not too bad!  I'm enjoying the process.

A few days ago I bought a phone app to help me schedule when I want to clean on certain days.  It's helped me so much.  I realize that I totally thrive on schedules and lists.  Without them I feel lost and overwhelmed.  Now that I have cleaning stuff "scheduled" I no longer feel overwhelmed and so far I've been keeping up with what I have scheduled.  Sure, I could have written it down on paper, but I'm having fun learning to make my phone a helpful tool!

Well, have a super awesome weekend!  Stay happy!

If you worry what people think of you, it's because you have more confidence in their opinion than you have in your own.

I saw that quote on Facebook today.  I don't know if the person who quoted it is the actual "quoter", but I thought it was great and it goes along with some of my thoughts lately.  More on that later.  I have a baby to get ready for a nap!

I scrapped this tonight!  The first thing I thought of when I saw these pictures was, "Look at how bald she was!"  These pictures were taken December 17, 2011.  I needed some scrapping inspiration tonight, so I found a page I recently pinned on Pinterest.  I had fun creating it!

I'm trying to figure out how to spend my time wisely.  Having a baby changes everything!  EVERYthing!  And I'm SO thankful!  So how do I do everything I want/need to do?  I'm trying to get more organized with things like cleaning house.  What I mean by that is setting up some sort of cleaning schedule otherwise nothing will get done.  I found a phone app to help, so I'm working on setting that up.  I can't do it all in one day or I think I'll cry.  Ha!  So I'm trying to figure out when I want things done.  A lot of times I just want to just relax after she goes down for a nap or bedtime, but if I continuously do that nothing will get done.  And now that she's awake more I am learning to make time to get things done while she hangs out in her Pack-n-Play for some "independent play time".  Tonight she hung out in her Jumperoo so I could clean our bathroom.

I'm also trying to figure out how to spend more time reading my Bible.  Studying has definitely changed.  It won't be the same as it used to be, so I'm trying to find ways to be creative with that.  I used to wake up in the morning with a warm drink (coffee or tea) and spend time reading and writing in my journal.  Well, since writing in my journal today, I've only written in it 3 times since September!  Oh my!  It's not that I haven't been thinking about these things the last 9 months, but now I'm realizing some things.

Anyway...enough chatting!  I'm off to bed!  Goodnight!
