I went to a crop tonight, for the first time in almost a year! Last time I went to a crop, I was so tired from being in the first trimester of my pregnancy that I left after only a couple of hours… I did some scrapping while Max was in the hospital, but until tonight, I'd only done ONE page since he came home.
My dialysis schedule is currently Mon, Wed, Fri, and my regular scrapping girls get together on Wed and Fri, so even though I've been ready (and Jamie has been ready!) to leave Max for a while, I haven't had a free night to get to it!
Thanks to the holidays making my dialysis schedule get swapped around, I had a free night tonight, so I actually got to go hang out with some of my old friends and get some pages done!
Not scrapping for FIVE MONTHS lets one have a lot of ideas! I sat down and cranked out EIGHT pages! That's almost a record for me (the record is 10 pages at a 9 hour crop… this was only six hours, so I guess it *is* a record! LOL)
Anyway, it was so great to be able to play again, and I really enjoyed it tons. Big thanks to Jamie for staying home with Max so I could have a girl's night!
And now, on to the pages!
An outtake from our Christmas card photos.
Journaling: OK, so we're not all in a row, with perfect camera-ready grins pasted on our faces. Heck, I'm not even looking at the camera! But I absolutely love this photo of us… like so much of our lives, it's a little off kilter, a little bit funny… it's perfectly us.
Max “signing” us the sign for “I love you” while in the NICU.
Journaling: We had to take what we could get when it came to understanding Max's signals- anything to make us feel closer when we were so separated.
