The last day of November is here..I found it hard to sleep last night. My mind races and thinks and thinks and thinks. I think of so many things. I just can't let go. Tomorrow will be December. The Christmas month. Jut too many things on my mind. I really didn't know what else to do to pass the time last night so I surfed the net for some inspiration...I found my self really getting into Pinterest and allowed my self to be lost on all sorts of interesting images, as well as some really irrelevant stuff I will never have use for. I signed up and started "pinning" quotes I like.
What do you think of this one?
Hmmm...this irritates me. I don't really know why. So..when she is off doing her hour and a half at the gym, where are the kids? Who is doing the cooking and cleaning and washing? Is it NOT luck or an accident that she has nannies to mind the kids while she steps out and can focus for an hour and a half? Is it not fairy dust that she has cleaners and chefs and people to drive her around or pick up her kids from school if she is running late? Am I sounding cynical? LOL! I am not..there is just something in that statement that does not spell "reality" for me. Reality is what real life mums do.
Yes..an hour and a half at the gym is EXTREMELY hard work. I know because I just joined the gym..but when I have to put 2 kids in the car and take them with me to the gym to be minded I am exhausted before I even get there. Today, while I was working out for an hour all I could think of was the jobs left behind that would just pile up. It just irritates me when famous women make these statements and then us, mere mortals, kill our selves at the gym to look like that and feel guilty for not training for an hour and half 5 days a week.
I don't know about you but my life seems to be on fast forward mode all day every day. Going to the gym is actually VERY difficult for me. Its time taken out of an already tight schedule. Maybe its because my kids are young. I don't know. But I just imagine Gwyneth going to the gym on her own, not having to drop off the kids, working out and then coming home , having a shower and taking it easy! LOL! I am actually a lot more stressed these day after joining the gym...
Aaaaaaanyway. I am just saying!
I also found this quote at Pinterest which is more like my way of thinking lately.,.
On that note, this is what I ended up scrapping last night. Must say it feels very empty for me..very plain. What do you think?
Just simple. I didn't want to say anything else.
My editing program has been playing up a little and for some reason the faces of the people in the photo come out a little weird looking.
Anyway, this is based on the current sketch over at Sketchy Thursdays
I also wanted to play along at Scrapbookers Anonymous "D" challenge but I didn't read the challenge correctly and thought I had to use the letter D in my title . But instead we needed to use items from our stash starting with D. Oh well..note to self..read things twice in the middle of the night! LOL!
The swirl in the middle on the layout above is from Imaginarium Designs as are the letters..
Hope you have a great night wherever you are.
Take care xoxo Nadia.
