Why do I do this????

I have been thinking all week about how much I can get done starting Friday night because Jock is hunting and Remi is with my mom until Sun. I can get Peyton to bed by 7:30 and scrap my heart away.

So, what happens??? My friend calls at 7:15 - she just moved back to town with her two girls she is "newly single" and really struggling with her day care situation. So we talk and I reassure her that she is not crazy and she does not have bad kids.

By the time we are off the phone it is 8:00 no biggie. I put Peyton to bed and plan to go back downstairs just long enough for her to fall asleep before going up to scrap. Then I realize that the tv is taping something and so I decide that I need to watch something else from DVR and choose Grey's Anatomy. And I kinda know that is the beginning of the end because I know I will never turn that off once I start it. And that is one of the few shows that I like to sit and watch and not do anything else while it is on. But then my friend calls back - more trauma - I do feel really bad for her. How do single moms do it??? I keep telling her that it will get better. She will get settled in and get a routine and it will get better. It has to.

But after the phone call I turn GA back on because I can't stop watching at that point. GREAT episode. I shed lots and lots of tears. Well, then I have to post to the GA thread at ScrapAddict which leads me to a few blogs to catch up on which leads me to updating my blog which leads me to now - 9:56 pm and not a tiny bit of scrapping done!!! But I am going to finish this now and go up and at least try to get a start on something. Here I go.............

This is the story of my life! Sometimes I wonder what I was doing all day, because I have nothing to show for it...
