A little update

Since I had a few minutes I thought I'd update this.  It's kind of a rarity these days to have any free time.  I read other blogs where the authors have multiple children, and in all honesty, I have NO idea how they keep up.  The only reason I have any time tonight is because my kids are at my mother in laws for the night.  All three of them.  YAY!  It's nice to have a little time to relax.  I have a ton of projects I'm wanting to work on but I really don't have time to do it.  One of things I really need to do is just to simply reorganize my scrapping life.  I want to just take little bits of time and set them aside just for scrapbooking.  So many of my families stories are sitting on my computer just waiting to be told.  I need to get them on paper! 

I was reminded this week of how precious time is and how we need to make the most of the time we have with our loved one.  Several of my church family members lost people they love this week.  My husband, children, parents, and sister are all I have in this world and I need to work on being better at telling them this. My husband is the greatest, most awesome husband ever.  He truly is.  There has never been something he's denied doing for me and he is always going out of his way to do things for me without me even having to ask.  Today for instance he not only did the laundry, but he arranged for all three of my kids to spend the night elsewhere, giving us a chance to enjoy dinner together and actually have a conversation without having to talk over the kids.

At the moment I'm watching 'I Am Legend'.  I don't even know why I bother.  This movie gives me nightmares.  I don't even know why it does.  It's just that when I was pregnant I watched it for the first time and it gave me the worst nightmares of living alone in this world, how I would survive and how I would protect my baby.  I don't even like to think about it.  In a way I hope that if some horrible virus or plague sweeps over this planet that it takes me with it.  Being alone in the world is not something I have a desire to do.

I still have so much to fit into this weekend! Especially cub scout stuff.  This Saturday is our Blue & Gold banquet.  I have to get all of the auction items together as this event doubles as a way to honor and recognize our scouts, and also to help us fundraise for the pack.  We were fortunate this year to get signed memorabilia for both University of Louisville fans AND University of Kentucky fans.....including a signed helmet, signed football, and signed flag.  It will raise a lot of money for our pack and go along way toward helping provide a successful program.  It's a lot of work to put on but worth it in the end.  This is the last year will be our last year in scouts for awhile.  My older son will continue on to Boy Scouts, but my husband and I are taking a back seat for a little while.  We've been fully involved for 5 years now and just need a little break.  When Oliver gets older and hopefully wants to join we'll get back into it.

My goal for Sunday is to get the scout stuff done, laundry done, a little cleaning, and then get to scrapbooking!!  I need to get my stories on paper!  Here's a little look at the start to my weekend.
