Disney recap: Day 2 (the beginnings of it, anyway)

I have spent the past week feeling totally overwhelmed. Work has been nuts, we haven't yet figured out a dropoff/pickup routine that works when the kids are in different locations, my meal planning has been shot, the house is a mess, and Liam's activities haven't even started yet. Tonight he brings home his first homework assignment. Don't even ask what we are going to do once Mallory is old enough for activities, too. (On a related note, today marks one week accident-free for Mallory, who must sense how close to the edge I feel and is doing her best to assuage me. Can I get a woot-woot!!)

And in the midst of all the madness, I am trying to sew myself a Halloween costume for a party this weekend. (Chad asked what the point was in going to the effort. I think it's a costume with longevity, and I am determined to see it through.) And all I really want to do with my spare time right now is get my Disney album put together. (Or, better yet: go back to Disney for another lovely week. But I don't think that will be happening anytime soon!) I have it all in my head; it's just getting it into Photoshop that is holding me up. There are only so many hours in the day.

I did whittle the 1300+ photos I took down to a more manageable 243, which are edited, and I hope to get them onto Flickr soon. I will also return at some point with a full report on Day 2. To tide you over: a page I have finished. (I am doing a trip album that will combine scrapbook pages with memorabilia pockets and photo sleeves, to keep it more manageable.)
