I've written so many blog posts since January 12... in my mind. I've shared thoughts and ideas and communicated so many times with you all... in my mind. Somehow, I haven't managed to get it all from my thoughts and into some tangible form that actually communicates with you all. Has this ever happened to you?
January seriously got away from me.
I mean, where DID the month go???
After my last post on January 12, I had the crop in Lancaster PA with daughter Sarah. For those of you that follow me on Facebook, you already know that was an experience. One of the hotel boilers was broken down and waiting for a part for repairs. The common areas of the hotel were fine. But the rooms.... half had no heat and were being supplied with space heaters ...
and NONE of the rooms had hot water. Which made showers, well, chilly to say the least. At least our room had heat.
But we survivied our camping out at a "resort hotel" experience. I won't bore you with the rest of the inadequacies of the hotel or the complete lack of customer service.
I had the BEST intentions for taking photos while there - of Sarah and I, of my friends and table-mates Rachel and Wendy. I even took my big camera. It didn't happen. I didn't take a single photo. Not one. But I did get pages done.
LOTS of pages.
The rest of the weekend I worked on pages for the girls' School of Life, Volume 2 (7th-12th grades) albums. The albums are not done yet, but great progress was made with 15 pages in Becca's album, 18 pages in Rachel's album, and 7 pages added to Sarah's album which already had the foundation pages in place. Not bad for a weekend work - 43 pages in total. Probably a record for me. And at some point I may even take photos of some of the best to share....
