deep thoughts

If I love scrapbooking so much, why don't I do it?

I think about. Read about it. Talk about it. Dream about it. Plan for it. I even find inspiration everywhere (today I thought of 3 page ideas while drying my hair in the bedroom).

I just don't do it.

Ever.

Okay like maybe once every other month.

That is so sad.

Man.

That is sad.

I clean my house, homeschool, eat chocolate, go to church....I do all the other things that make up my life that I enjoy doing but I never scrapbook.

Am I lying if I say I'm a scrapbooker?

I'm getting known at church for taking pictures and tonight someone at a Christmas party said, "so are you into photography, is that what you do?" and I said, "yes" - then I felt bad and later added, "I like to scrapbook, do you?"

So now photography is what I do?

I take pictures almost every day and I love it. I make time for it.

So why don't I make time to scrapbook?

Is anyone else this way?

Discuss. Talk amongst yourselves. I gave you a topic.

If a kid asks where rain comes from, I think a cute thing to tell him is, "God is crying." And if he asks why God is crying, another cute thing to tell him is, "Probably because of something you did." from Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey (SNL)

Oh Oh Oh! I am really truly laughing out loud! Great topic!

Yes. EVEN if you don't DO it, if you love it, think about it, plan for it, and OCCASIONALLY (like for me it's maybe three times a YEAR) do it, then you are scrapper.

You could be a Photographer too.

Love the deep thought.

I feel that way about reading the Bible. I know I enjoy it when I do it, but why can't I get myself to do it? Am I still a christian if I don't read? Yes of course! So are you a scrapbooker if you don't scrapbook all the time? Yes of course! I know those are two extreme things, but that is what your post reminded me of.

For some reason I never imagined sweet Caroline running around the room so fast that it makes her sweaty. She seems so calm.
