So this year my Spring Break wasn't spent in New York. :( But I took work off anyway to scrapbook the rest of my China pictures. Yes- it has been 3 years and I still haven't finished my scrapbooking. I spend most of my time looking through my journal so I can catch every memory 'just right'.

But I was a factory this week. I produced 36 pages. THIRTY-SIX PAGES!!!! My problem is that I want to scrap every picture. I took it for people to see, so I feel like I have to scrap it. My nephew calls in 'scrafting'. scrapping and crafting. I liked scrafting. I am almost done- but I feel very proud of myself. Thanks mom, for letting me set up shop in your kitchen.

I did learn a few things about myself, China, and scrapbooking over this week. Here's a few:

1. I MUST, repeat, MUST start getting ready and doing my hair and make-up when I go on vacation. No wonder I hate all of my vacation photos. I look like an orphan.

2. Scrafting must be done close to the event. If not, feelings change, people are cut out of pictures... I'm just saying, perception changes a lot in 3 years.

3. China is cool. Cool scenery, cool cheap DVD's, weird/sometimes good food, feeling anonymous, adventures around every corner. Very cool. Funny stuff too.

4. Scrafting in a kitchen, is a deterent, not convenient. Whenever I started to brain-fart, I would get a snack. A LOT.

5. Chinese kids are cute. Other kids too.

So while this Spring Break wasn't one that created memories, it sure was nice to revel in my previous memories.


  1. If it makes you feel any better I still have a scrapbook that I haven't finished from 8th grade... Congrats!

  2. I was remembering that very cold St.Patricks day parade we went to together. Brrr!!!!

    Next year you and J can come visit us in DC! :)

    P.S. Thought you might be interested. Phil has a blog (who doesn't these days) :)

  3. Mom loved having you in the "kitchen". Next time I stock it with healthy snacks!
