I'm back...or trying to be. I took a pretty long hiatus after my brothers passing...threw myself into my family and sugar gliders, every so often I would glance at my albums, but it seems/ed that everything reminds me of him. Yesterday I bought a scrapbooking mag (also the first since then) and it reminded me how much I love it.
Anyway, I usually have a page about that year, but with this year being so...How do I spin a good light on the bad things?
-My husband had a tumor in his arm (thankfully it was benign--but we didn't know until the took it out)
-I had to put a pet down
-Our family shop burnt down (also had all of our baby stuff, christmas ornaments, and everything in it)
-My brother passed
-My relationship with my grandparents (who besides my dad had always been my rock) has disintegrated
-I was involved in a wreck in my brand new car
-My husband has had a couple of promotions/raises
-We moved to a house that ours (instead of family owned)
-I got a new truck after the wreck
-My kids are still happy and healthy
I think the worst part is going to be scrap-booking the holidays at the beginning of next year...any advice on that?
I wanted to come back because besides my lovely but aging aunt, I am the family historian now...my grandmother lost everything she had, and my aunt mostly has pictures, so I feel like I need to cover everything else...plus my kids are growing so fast, seems like they do something new everyday...and I am already forgetting pages that I wanted to do >.< lol
