Still on a High!
We all got up this morning, still thinking about Dana as the new Student Trustee for next year. What a grade 12 year he is going to have! Today? He's off on a retreat with the Grade 10's. The Pastoral teacher asked him if he'd come along to help out, and he, of course, said sure. It makes me wonder how we get the children we get. You can be an awesome parent, and still get a child who is very troubled. I don't kid myself that I've done everything right and perfect, and that's why he's such a good kid. I'm not so silly as to believe that. I can't count the mistakes I've made. But it does make me wonder.
Lack of Motivating Factors
I know I've been chatting about this a fair bit lately... but I'm truly at a loss. Has anyone else noticed the lack of truly motivating factors out there in the scrapbooking world, lately? It seems as if there are fewer calls for magazines... fewer contests... fewer big events... and I, for one... have counted on these things to motivate me. To push me beyond my self-set limits. I've been brainstorming lately, to try and come up with an alternative. How about you? Any ideas? Aside from motivating yourself... what are you doing to compensate for this lack? Have you found something that helps??? I'd LOVE to know???
Writing, Writing, Writing
I'm home sick today. AND it's the long weekend. big sigh. I feel as if the weight of the world is off of my shoulders right now. AND... I'm going to spend much of my time writing. For those of you who don't know... I am writing a book. I write every day, of course... but being home today... I should get a lot done. I'm in the middle of a really good part, and can't wait to see what my heroin is going to do. Sometimes she makes some choices I really wish she wouldn't make. Here's hoping she doesn't get herself.. and me.. into a mess today.
Have a great day!
