    You girls are just the friendliest lot ever! :) I love your chatter but I can't chatter and scrap and live this crazy busy life all at once as much as I'd like! I decided after I found you and the other online communities in January (after digi scrapping for many years) to stick to two and do the challenges each month so that I am at least scrapbooking and I have a monthly deadline and a reward! Both awesome for me. I have since 4 pm today (it's now 1 am) scrapped 6 of the 7 July challenges, I did one last weekend. All the photos I scrapped were all taken in the last 8 days! They start at my fav once yearly scrapping retreat where I spent the entire weekend just sorting, upzipping and putting in a 'find-able place' all the digi kits I've bought this year! (Good grief I've got to stop doing that! I've zillions already!) I didn't even finish sorting them all!

    On Monday my eldest son finally started a new great job (yah) and then on Wednesday I was recalled for a 'routine' mammogram which didn't turn out to be routine after all. I had 3 biopsies and have to wait a week to see if they are benign...or not.

    Thursday I pretended Wednesday hadn't existed and went on the planned snow trip which was just what I needed! I had so much fun! I don't know how you all live with that stuff but I had fun playing for one day! Built my very first snowman at 54 yrs old! LOL :D Also tobogganed for the first time ever! Such fun! :)

    Then yesterday I went to the funeral of a good 89 yr old friend, then work, then my volunteer job, then work again and then doctors, etc. Today I hit a wall. What a week. Visited a friend who has cancer, strangely enough that's the only person I wanted to see. Bought myself a 'cheering up ice cream cone' on the way home (had to pass the new ice cream shop and I hadn't tried it yet!) :) Then went to bed and have spent the last 9 hours straight scrapbooking! It's the most pages I've ever done in that time!

    So that was my week! All scrapbooked! Thanks for reading/listening. I don't often comment, not much time left but I love reading and looking at all your amazing layouts. Have a great weekend!

    What a week! Sending good vibes your way as you move forward with the unknown and am glad to hear that you're making time right now to do the things that bring you joy (ice cream, building your 1st snowman and scrapbooking!). Hugs to you.

    Ah, love your snow page!! I love snow, grew up in the frozen Midwest, but I don't love it enough to live there. We are in the South now, where snow is a treat and not a daily chore.

    You did have a crazy busy week. My biggest oops for the week happened on Weds. I was doing good until sometime that afternoon, when I got it into my head that it was Tuesday. So I was sitting at home, scrapping, when I got a text asking why I was not at my usual Wednesday night meeting. Oops...

    That certainly is some week. Hugs to you for the mammo news/biopsies. I hope things turn out ok with that. The waiting for answers is hard. Besides the busy, it sounds like you filled some of your week with lots of wonderful new things to try and enjoy - including the time spent scrapping. Big congrats to your son!

    And no worries on how much you do chat/don't chat. We are just happy you call this place a digi home!

    Wow, you've had quite the week, filled with lots of ups and downs. I hope you don't have to wait too long for the news from your doctor and that you get good news.

    @Genniejoy Some peeps chat a lot and others don't . . . you choose what level fits you best. Myself, I go through phases of chatting more and less.

    I said a prayer for you about your biopsies and the results.

    So excited that you were able to scrap so much! Woo-Hoo!

    Sending you thoughts and prayers after your busy and harrowing week. I will keep positive thoughts re the biopsies that it is all benign. Prayers, prayers and more prayers. So sorry about your friend and I am glad you got to get away and enjoy a little bit of your week. Yay for scrapping.. Scrapping is great for therapy and shutting out stuff. Sending hugs across the miles.

    I live in Melbourne (Down Under), where are you? I've been to the snow once before, went skiing with a previous boyfriend at Falls Creek 32 years ago! We just went to Lake Mountain this week which is only 3 hours drive away. We left at 7:30 am and got home at 7:30 pm. Tassie has great snow as do some mountains in NSW. :) If I can do it at 54, you can too! :D

    I have only moved to Tassie last March from northern NSW. It has already been snowing down here and when we finally get settled I would love to go and find some! Talking 'the other half' into doing that will take some doing though! LOL! :)
