Welcome to a day in my life. I can't guarantee that this will be an exciting read for anyone. My life is filled with all the mundane activities of a stay-at-home-mom just trying to raise her three sons to be the best men they can be.

I'm exhausted!

Have you ever had one of those nights where you just lay away while your brain just takes over and is flooded with tonnes of thoughts and images? Last night was one of those nights for me. I fell asleep fine, but woke up, for some reason, at 1 a.m. and then just layed there for about two hours while things from the past just came flooding back. I felt like I was sitting in a movie theatre just watching everything unfold over and over again, in fast forward.
While I'm exhausted this morning from a lack of sleep, I was marvelling at just how far we have come.
I stumbled across a blog the other day (this could be why the sleepless night last night). It is written by a 22 year old woman out in Alberta who has Nonverbal Learning Disorder and Asperger's Syndrome. Over the past two days I have read through her entire blog, facinated and inspired by her drive and determination to make it in this world, and to make a mark. She may not every know it, but she had certainly made an impact on me, and encouraged me as we look forward to life with an adult child who has NLD. If you want to take a peak, here's a link: http://zeppyoscarandcompany.blogspot.com/ I know you will be inspired like I was.
On the scrapping front I haven't been very successful in the last couple of weeks (since our time at the trailer). My printer decided to have a temper tantrum and wasn't playing nice with my computer. I finally got that fixed last night and so I will be able to get some layouts done again (well, at least I don't have a good excuse not to.)

I still have a back log of layouts that I haven't posted here. Here are three of them.
I love these pictures that my dad took one Sunday morning (either before or after Church). It was in 1963. ... I'm the youngest.



I've been inspired by Barb's abilitity to work on pictures from her past, and her childhood, and to create a "book of me". I've decided that I really need to make this a priority for me. I'm loving working on these pictures.

  1. Oh wow, I am so touched and honoured to be mentioned here. Who would have thunk it? Me, an inspiration? I think of the heap of supplies sitting on my desk, and I wonder if you're talking about the same person. :P

    I'm glad that you're scrapping photos of your childhood. Those are great pictures. You are fortunate to have these, and yes, it's a great way to preserve memories and celebrate the experiences that shaped you into the woman you've become. I can't wait to see more!

    And yes, I will check out that blog you linked when I have a bit more time. Thank you for that.
