What are you doing?

So what is everyone doing this weekend?
I have decided to do something I've put of for MANY MANY years! What, you ask? I am finally getting around to journaling all of the scrapbook pages that I've done through the years. I don't know why I've put it off for so long. I use to go to scrapbook retreats and would do 20-30 layouts, but never journaled them, because I wanted to do it on the computer when I got home. Well now I have all these books with theses lovely little spaces left for journaling. Last night I downloaded a few new fonts and I've been working hard on this. I still have 3 thick books to do, but my goal is to get them done today. I will not allow myself to scrapbook a new layout until I'm caught up on all of these old albums. My sister Coleen is coming over today too. She is going to re-create the family layout I just posted for her family album. Plus she is going to work on some of her son, Kaden's pages. It will be a fun day, I think. If I get my stuff done, I'm going to finish up these baby shower invitation too. I'm pretty sure I'm going to stay in pajamas all day. I don't have to go anywhere, so I might as well be comfortable, right?!
Mark took Cole to a bike rally up north today. I can't remember the name of it, but it's something like "I can't afford to go to Sturgis bike rally" I sent him with the little digital to take pictures. I hope they're having a great time together! Those pictures will be fun to scrap!
P.S. my dad is doing great! The stint is holding well. He had some blockage in a teeny artery in his heart that was causing his pain, but they can treat that with medication. To me his heart looks great compared to what it looked like a few years back when he had his heart attack. Just keep counting our blessings for good things!
Thanks everyone for your sweet comments. I sure love all of you girls!

**EDITED** As of last night I FINISHED all of the journaling in all of my albums! YAY ME!! I feel so accomplished! Now to finish those invitations...maybe after church today.
Mark and Cole had a very fun but long 500 mile ride. He said that he now has no desire to ever go to the real Sturgis (sp?) because the most of the bikers that showed up at this rally were pretty creepy! They only stayed for a few minutes before they decided they they were not "that kind" of bikers...LOL!

I'm proud of you for finishing all of your journaling, Jolene! That's indeed a wonderful accomplishment. :) Last week, my friend Nancy came over and commented how nice it was to look at my albums, with the journaling and all. Made me feel really good that someone appreciated all my hard work! Love ya, Me

Good job on finishing up your great is it to set a goal and then make it all the way? And, isn't it a load off your mind too?


Let's see...I'm made 3 new handbags (2 to sell in the shop and 1 to keep)...yes, I just sold my first 2 bags (in 1 day, I might add!) Hemmed some pants into groovy capris...and had some good fun!

Are you going to put up a "no biker attire" sign in your house (you know, just in case?) LOL!!

Pam said...

WOW! Way to go Jolene! I just don't journal and that saves that hassle! ;)

Good luck on the invites and so glad to hear your Dad is doing well!

Sorry I was a no show for scrapping Saturday but see what you got done without me? It just started with physical therapy and went downhill from there. I will see you this Saturday @ 9:00. I'm looking forward to it. Love ya
