Ali Edwards WITL

I spent some time reading Ali Edwards' WITL plan at her site.  She is selling some of the scrapbooking items she recommends for this project (scrapbooking a week in your life), but she also gives great instructions as to how to do it and shows step by step how she did this in her life. It is a great idea though it entails a lot of work.

Quite frankly, it was interesting to me to read about her life as she is working and caring for her family (the voyeur in me is coming out :).  Of course, my life is much different now than hers - but I can certainly remember those days and wish I had recorded the life of my family as she is doing.  Of course, we didn't have digital cameras and computers then.

She also includes some great quotes in her blog. Here is one that really struck a chord with me:
As I was ending my day I came across this quote from Emerson: 
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
