Okay, maybe that is a bit of an exaggeration, but since my last post, all of my spare time has been consumed by prepping photos and assembling the photobook that I was eleven months behind on. Though my procrastination over this project was well-established, MyPublisher rallied me into action with the temptation of a 40% off coupon code. It expires tomorrow, so I was on a deadline. But it's done; looking at all of the photos from 2009 made me very homesick for Thailand (weird, huh?) and wistful for the tiny baby who is now a two year-old hooligan, but I think that I am going to love the book when it's here.
Oh, and yes, I did post last month about wanting to give up on MyPublisher and it's silly dimension/resolution nit-picking, but I just couldn't get into the page templates at the other reputable photobook sites, so I downloaded a trial of PSE 9 and made my peace with the painstaking process of scaling down my photos. It was hours of work, still, but on the upside, this album is going to have a lovely photowrap cover. Anyway, that's enough with the free compliments ...
While I was ignoring everything but digital photos and my kids, I did manage to check out one of my fave blogs - Dinner with Julie. Yes, I've been a little obsessed with her blog lately. I blame it on the post about homemade cocoa mix (which I can totally do here in Vietnam), and now she's posted about peanutbutter cocoa and making marshmallows shaped like Peeps. Resistence is futile.
And before I go, can I just say that my December schedule has been slammed by special programming at Madeline's school? A Christmas concert, Christmas party, charity book sale, charity bazaar, field day, and I swear that there is something else that I'm forgetting, all within the next three weeks. Unreal.
