where the writers are
The Picture Problem

I struggle to organize my pictures and scrapbooking. I want to give my children a book of memories when they are older. Dcumenting what they do makes me happy and provides a hobby and outlet for me. I know I can't document it all, but I want to write down, record, or photograph most of it. I write what they say, watch, eat, see, do.

All of this is pretty silly. By trying to hold onto all of their memories, I may be missing the actual event. Printing pictures, the framing, filing, and creating of documents to hold scraps takes time. These scraps aren't my memories, but they might spark some one day when my memory lacks.
