Let's go slow, ok. . .

Confession (and ridiculously obvious): I have been a bad blogger. Let's move on.

There have been a lot of obstacles to scrapbooking. Starting with #1:

I have been busy with a kitchen reno from Hades. I kind of felt like Goldilocks and the 3 Bears with appliances. 3 refrigerators and 2 dishwashers later, (And many many curse words later) the finished result. All stainless steel. We still intend to match the faucets, but that is a battle for another day (replace the main faucet with stainless steel? Or replace the filtered water faucet with brushed nickel?) I'm pretty sure the kitchen has sucked the life right out of me. Decorating is hard. And I'm kind of glad it's done now. And after 8 months I have given up my new year's goal of Year of the Home (where I complete  a home improvement project until I cross them all off my list.) Yeah, screw the list. I'm done and I'll get to when I get to it. :P

Obstacle #2

Crohn's arthritis. It's always something with this disease, but the arthritis in my hands has been the most devastating part. I know it's not permanent, doesn't cause lasting damage, will eventually move back to my feet/ankles/back in time. But it's kind of disheartening anyway. I take it day by day, minute by minute sometimes. And sometimes even though I'm not supposed to I take a motrin. :P

Obstacle #3

I don't know how to have a full time career, be a mom, a wife, a sister, a daughter, a dog owner, a maid, an accountant, have a chronic disease and run a laundry mat all at the same time. I'm learning. Life was easier as a SAHM while my child napped. Made for a nice crafting afternoon. Still, I have streamlined my life in the past couple months, partially out of a need to have things run as efficiently as possible with me not feeling %100 percent and partially out of a want to let go of unnecessary stuff/obligations.

So let's go slowly if there is anyone out there still reading. I am still crafting and I'll try to share something soon. Fair enough? Happy new day to you, Until tomorrow.
