The challenge this week for those following along with the 2010 Memory Logbook was to scrap your “dream” wish list … all that stuff you would love to have, be or do regardless of whether those things could ever actually come to fruition.
It doesn’t bother me too much that DVDs and streaming video have taken away the need to catch a favorite holiday movie on the night it airs on TV. Nor do I mind that I can listen to a favorite carol any time I like thanks to the magic of iTunes and mp3 players. But the one thing I definitely would miss if it were to be displaced entirely by modern technology would be the holiday ritual of sifting through a nice big stack of catalogs.
Holidays can be full of happiness and joy … and that’s the part we tend to share most often in our scrapbook pages. But holiday time also tends to bring with it a fair amount of stress, whether it be for financial reasons, overloaded schedules, or as in the case of our Layout of the Week, that self-imposed pressure to meet our own expectations.
