My husband has the ability to focus on a project or task to the exclusion of all else. He keeps going, for hours if need be, until the job is done. Oh sure — he’ll stop for meals or if the boys (or I) need something, but then he goes back to work.

Not me. Boy howdy, I cannot concentrate on anything. I flit around from idea to idea, from project to project. Eventually I do finish things, but I’m a lot like Pigpen with bits and pieces of projects floating behind in my wake.

The rest of this post started to sound a little whiny again, so I deleted it. Suffice it to say that I need to start channeling my husband and focus on some things over the rest of the week, rather than flitting around.

I did have great intentions of photographing some things (including some awesome mail today!) and I just….never managed it!

It’s on my list for tomorrow, though.

One thing that I am finding very appealing about digital scrapbooking is that when I turn off my computer — the mess is completely contained and not laying around all over the place.

Here’s a page I started tonight.  It still needs tweaking, and I’m debating about adding some journaling.  I’m not sure about the lettering and how I implemented that, it’s not quite what I had in mind.  I do like the textured background, though.

I am way behind on responding to comments.  Profuse apologies, I will try to catch up tomorrow.  I’m also way behind on reading my list of blogs.  And ya’ll keep writing more, so I keep getting behinder! (That is SO a word, spell check, don’t even try to make me change it.)

For now, though, I think I’ll go focus on some sleep.

    Suzanne, I love the scrapbook page ….okay, not the writing part because it’s too confusing:)….but I love the way you did the rest of it.

    And maybe you just need some down time to recuperate from Grease. You’ve been so busy lately. Sometimes we have to find a way to take some time for ourselves. And I know that with kids at home, it’s easier said than done.

    I know just what you mean about flitting from one thing to another. This could be why my house looks like a tornado hit it. Of course, it could be because I just don’t care — hmmmn. Love the scrapbook pages you’ve been doing lately, but I refuse to drink the kool-aid.
