All By Myself

My mom told me last week that she wanted to keep Ethan a bit this week since she hadn't seen him in a while (maybe a week!). So, she picked him up today and I saw them off. The thing is, after they left I had a pang of sadness that I wasn't going to be around my little boy until tomorrow morning. And then I wondered what in the world I was going to do with all my free time. And then I did a celebration dance. Essentially, I had just been handed a day off of work. A holiday.

Here is a list of things I could have (some I probably should have) done, in no particular order:

DISHES (I have a small pile in the sink and a full dishwasher right now)
IRONING (does this count as laundry?)
WATCH A MOVIE (one that Casey won't watch with me)
GO SHOPPING (or go anywhere I wanted!)
STRIP WALLPAPER (took me about 3 seconds to nix this one)
WORK (for my part-time job)

But I did none of those things. Instead, I worked on Ethan's baby scrapbook...uninterrupted. And accomplished a lot. Come to think of it, the last time I made this many layouts was another day when my mom took Ethan for the day. Hmmm. For those interested (family), take a closer look at these pages in the gallery.

I LOVE all of them! My favorites are the Karate Baby page and the censored sign in his bath pics!
=0) You are so good at this, do you want to give me a lesson sometime? I would love to do this, but need a little more tutorial, or just need someone to do it for me! hehheehe. Are you for hire?
