Itchy fingers

This package of papers and other scrapping goodies came in the mail for me on Saturday just as I was headed out the door to "Scrappily Ever After," where I was in charge of some make-and-takes for the first anniversary.
I spent all day at the store on Saturday and Boo kept me up most of the night. Sunday I went to church and came home and napped for three hours.
Today I worked on some stories for the newspaper and cleaned the kitchen. But during all of the activities the paper has been whispering to me. "Come scrap, you know you want to!"
I have taken the paper out of the bundles and fondled it several times. I'm formulating ideas. My fingers are a itching to get into the paper and start creating.
Alas, I still have three stories to research / write for the Thursday paper. Since the family is planning an outing on Thursday I need to do all the writing by Wednesday, and I still haven't been able to set up an interview for one of the stories (the other two are rather straight forward and don't really require appointments).
I'll be spending all day Tuesday and Wednesday chasing down and writing the stories instead of scrapping. Thursday will be the afore mentioned family day.
I won't be able to play in my paper until Friday, at the earliest ~ a full week from the day it came into my home.
Don't you feel bad for me?
K, I would love to have you come visit me in my basement and play with paper one weekend. I can muck out DS-As bedroom so you have a place to crash. Since your home is in the same place as the makers of Cosmo Cricket (one of the paper lines featured here) you could pick up some goodies. ;-)

Wow! You sound like a miser counting his gold. I wonder if hunters have that feeling? I'm a little that way about Project Runway. It's a good thing we don't drink!
