Well, once again, life has trumped blogging in my little corner of the world. I can't complain; I've been blessedly busy -- mostly with work, but also with sports, the end of the school year and 100 other things. It got me thinking, actually, that my scrapbooks only really document the leisurely things we do as a family and with our friends -- but have never addressed how busy our lives really are with all of the other stuff we do.
So I decided to document our real life - from the perspective of time on the calendar. This two-page spread will need a one-pager to introduce it and explain what I just said above (and include a few photos from the week), but that's for another day.
(The above image doesn't get much larger when you click on it. Try clicking on the individual pages below for legible journaling.)
For the scrapbookers out there, if you haven't documented a week in your life, I'd highly recommend it! Documenting our life in this way made me realize why I feel so worn out and somehow validated my feeling that way! Plus, I know our lives are constantly changing, and next year, our routine will be vastly different! (In fact, with this being the first week of summer vacation, our morning routine has actually changed this week over last week.) And some day, when I'm retired and wondering what to do with my time, I can look back on this layout and realize I should just be thankful for the gift of time.
