On that note, multiple people have mentioned that I have unrealistic expectations of myself. I've been thinking about that because Geoff brought it up again this week. Writing about scrapbooking reminded me of it, because often my perfectionism, and wanting my scrapbooks to look like the ones in magazines, holds me back from doing anything at all. (And on a whole other tangent, I often worry that there is little eternal value in this hobby and that it is a purely selfish absorption of mine. But that is for another time and place and given the size and breadth of the hobby/industry, could really "stir the pot" to question the value and significance of it.
Getting back to having unrealistic expectations... This affects many areas of life. Parenting, for example. And my brain is not functioning well enough to blog deep thoughts right now, so this topic will have to be revisited sometime.
Tried this Thai Chicken, Mango and Pineapple Salad last night. Way too much work and not that spectacular.
