Making A.......

I am putting this here to hold myself accountable. As most of you know, I went back to work in August and while it is part time I do go in everyday. This has been the hard part... even when I worked full time, I only worked 3 (12 hour) shifts a week. That gave me one day to recover and 3 days a week to play (scrap). This going to work everyday, in the middle of the day has really been hard to adjust to as far as fitting in scrapping time.

My first thought was Monday: I have every Monday off but that quickly became the "get everything house related done" day. Laundry, groceries, various appointments. Then it was Sunday: This works sometimes but not consistent.

So here is my plan: 
After dinner and what not that goes along with the evening obligations I am giving myself permission to go upstairs and play in my scraproom. 

I am not sure why I have gotten it into my head that once Mike is home I can not play... this has never been the case and he normally will follow me up and sit next to me while I play. But I need to start making time for me. I miss scrapping and creating and I need it for my soul. It really is my "me time"

So this year and I am making it early... 
You know that resolution thing....
 I am making time for me time. My time to create, plan classes or just sit in my studio and contemplate the next CTMH convention or album retreat. 
Maybe even print some photos? 
It has been while since I have done that.
Speaking of photos? 
 I think most of my photos are on facebook this year.  It is time to get them off my phone and into a scrapbook.
