The Attempt + Ice Cream Sandwiches

I've decided to make a LOT of changes in my life. I get some serious depression in winter, and now that it's nice enough to be outside, I'm starting to feel better....but at the same time, worse. Worse because the sweaters I hide behind will soon be put away for tshirts and clothes I can't hide behind. :o
So, last night I joined weight watchers. I am down 25 pounds from my highest weight right now, I have a LONG way to go...but I made the step.

The other major issue, is I realized I was spending way too much time on the internet, way too much time scrapbooking, way too much time on ME. I feel selfish. So, in an effort to be a better wife and mother, I have cut down my usage....large. I think the goal is an hour a day... that's not so bad is it? Most of the time it's when everyone's in bed.

Speaking of in bed... I stay up way too late, 3 AM late. I've been making an effort to get to bed earlier..and that's slowly moving down... 2AM and 1AM even. I want to be able to go to bed at the same time as DH so we have a chance to connect.....that's where we discuss a LOT of things, and that just hasn't been happening, because I've been night owling. I miss it. So, that's my goal...go to bed with DH more often. Otherwise we don't even spend much time together..he works long hours.

The internet, is quite the obsession that can drain the life out of you...and can make you spend a LOT of time thinking/overthinking and becoming involved in something that has blown out of your own mind. HELLO..there's a real world!! LOL

So, anyways..that's what's up. Less time on the net, more time for my family, work on my self esteem/weight...and learn to enjoy life. I have a long way to go. :)

SOOOOO...on a lighter note...I'm not just a scrapbooker! heheh. I love trying other things... here is my little cutie felt ice cream sandwich. He's from the Softies book. The directions FRUSTRATED me to NO end..and he was not MODERATE to make but IMPOSSIBLE. In my mind, I made alterations and I think I can make him a lot simpler...if I ever wanted to again! HA

The pictures aren't the greatest..I took them at night, and who would've thought that felt is hard to photograph?! He (Smooshy) is actually a dark chocolate colour. Have a peek:

Hope you're all enjoying your week! If you do felt guys, I would love to see! :D
Jocelyne and Lori, you're goodies are going postal today...sorry for the hold up!
