Day 3 of the Evil Soup Diet

I have decided that I HATE this soup. Last night I managed to get it down for supper...but barely! I immediately thought that I might throw up in distaste but instead called Christa for some emotional support.

Suggestions to make this diet possible for me to continue:
- Make a new batch of soup, the way I would normally make soup minus the potatoes
- Eat any soup. I.e. A Campbells variety of veg soup which still shouldn't have too many calories.
- Hold my nose and just swallow the soup I've made already

So far today I am doing good with the fruit I've been snacking on all morning (Grapes, canteloupe, apple), for lunch I will have salad again...but tonight for dinner I think I will try a can of soup. Volleyball tonight so I don't have time to make a whole new batch even if I decide that I want to.

I just don't want to quit...but I don't want to end up being malnourished either. The soup is supposed to be what fills you up whenever you're hungry. I'm feeling hungry because I can't stomach the soup. Any suggestions to keep me on this thing for the next 4 days?

And to add insult to injury, I have complete scrappers block. Thought I would be able to finish some layouts this week, tried to get a page done last night...but NOTHING! I have my pics ready but I can't even make it to the next step of choosing co-ordinating papers. Not a single idea is coming to my head when I sit down at my scrapping desk. I'm usually a pretty creative person, gotta figure out a way to get those juices flowing. In the meantime I guess I'll be scraplifting.

And can someone please tell me how I can scan 12 x 12 layouts? I have no idea since the scanner is too small to fit the full page there a specific program where you can piece the 2 sides of the layout together? I'm a complete idiot about this but would love to learn so I can perhaps open an account with 2peas and start posting my layouts. Please tell me...???

And whoever tells you how to scan 12x12 layouts can share the knowledge with me's such a puzzling thing.

Hope you figure out what to do about the soup, you're not a quitter you need to worry about your health.

Well, I hope that the soup thing gets better. I don't necessarily love the soup but I certainly don't hate it as much as you do. lol.

Sorry I'm no help on the scanning thing. I don't even own a scanner.
