I went on a scrapbooking retreat this last weekend at a WONDERFUL Bed and Breakfast in Rogersville, MO about 45 minutes from here. The food was great and the location was perfect.
I got there on Friday about 5pm. Started scrappin' right away until 2am. My normal bedtime is about 9pm, so that was great. I had been up since 5 am that day, so it's amazing I was still going at 2am!
Saturday, I slept in 'til 8am, started scrappin' at 8:30am and only lasted until 1am that day. Still 15 hours is good (take out 1.5 hours for meals :))
Sunday, slept in again 'til 8am, but only scrapped until about noon, I was anxious to get home. It was a good weekend..I got 53 pages done which is the equivelant to the first 3 1/2 months of 2004. I've turned our downstairs kitchen into my scrapbook nook, so hopefully I can continue to make pages and slowly get caught up, but I wouldn't count on it. I'll just have to rely on these retreats!
I learned last Friday that I am to make a "Lifebook" for the new baby. I figured I would make a scrapbook anyway, but apparently I need to start a "Life Book" now to be able to incorporate the process and all of our feelings during this adoption process. There are books out there about how to make a Life Book starting now, so I guess I need to add that to the list of books I must read!!
