Late night

I've developed a habit of coming alive creatively at night. I'm not sure that's a great thing, but it's the way it is right now. I tried...I really tried to get down to business early - like 5. D offered to be on J duty and everything. But I was having a lot of fun hanging out with ladies from my building outside with their babies and watching J play with all the other cool kids who live in our building as well. It was sunny, we shared a cooler in wine glasses with ice (mmm...so refreshing) and just chatted and watched the blissful children playing with sticks.

So then, we ordered Chinese for dinner. I am SO not a fan of cooking during the summer it seems. Too hot. No time/energy to grocery shop. No energy to harass D into doing it. No worries - he'll do it when we actually run out of food.

Then it was after dinner. I cleaned up from dinner...and yes, it was hard work putting all those containers of leftovers in the fridge! Then I piddled a bit on the comp...couldn't pull myself away. Then it was bathtime. Now it's bedtime and D is still on duty...putting the lil munchkin to bed. But I'm STILL not GOING. Not yet. I do have pix printed out. I have done a little bit on something else I'm working on. I'm just not quite there yet - not quite ready. I'm gonna take a break, go over to a neighbour's, and maybe have a beer and a decent adult conversation. I told her I wasn't going to go over because I had "work" to do (non-scrappers do NOT understand "I have to scrap"...they just don't) but then I thought...maybe a mental break will be just the kick-start I need. Then, I *might* just have the energy I need/so badly want...to do a page.

Tomorrow is Friday - woooooooo hooooooo! LUV Fridays!!!

I can totally hear you on being ready but not able to scrap until later - sorry I have NO suggestions though. How cool is that you got a great hubby supporting your habit ;)
