Spring Gets My Mind Racing!


Ever since changing the clocks, I've been a bundle full of excitement over Spring! It's almost here! I don't know about you guys, but the idea of warmer weather always has me working double time on home projects. Cleaning, rearranging furniture, changing towels, adding accents with fun colors, you get it. There just isn't enough time in the day for all the things I'd love to be doing. My pre-running hobby was scrapbooking. Any time I had a free moment or two, you could find me at my scrapbook table working away on pages. Or just wandering around a scrapbook store. Well, every since I started running, scrapbooking has been shoved to the back burner. I just don't have the time. I'm sure some of you must have more than one hobby, how do you do it? If I sit down to try and scrap, I feel guilty because I really should be using that time to run! I'm desperate to get back into it though. Something about this warmer weather has me taking photos again (something else I shoved aside) and I'd love to scrap a few. I did find something to help save me some much needed time though. In the mail today, I received the latest flyer from Bed Bath and Beyond. In it, I found the perfect floor cleaning solution: Slipper Genie Micro Fiber Cleaning Slippers. Yup. You read that correctly...cleaning slippers. I think getting a pair for each of my boys would be the perfect time-saving solution!

My hobbies all seem to be cyclical. Not intentionally, but I get really into something for a few months, maybe a year, then find myself interested in something totally different, and eventually I come back to the first hobby, usually in a wave of nostalgia. Seems like the season change could be doing that to you.
(And the slippers seem like a good investment for the boys).

I think my kids (and my floors!)definitely need some of these! As for the hobbies, I do my scrapbooking after the kids are in bed and it's dark out, when I know I wouldn't be running anyway. Have you thought about digital scrapbooking?? Some think it's "cheating" and others absolutely love it...

Crumbs - you know, I never thought about it that way but I think you are 100% correct! I just hope I don't do that with the running...hopefully that will be with me for a while!

Katy - I tried it once. Once. And I nearly threw my computer out the window! I was really bad at it. I find playing with all those papers rather relaxing too. After dark - now that's a good idea! Just means I have to get off the couch! ha!
