What's the deal with being "caught up"?

A frequent question I hear is "Are you caught up on your scrapbooking?", which means basically, "Are all your photos scrapped?". My answer, "ummm, no."

This question bugs me....not only am I not caught up, I don't want to be caught up.

I'm interested in the idea of contrasting photos and times. So, for example, on one page, show a photo of someone at age 3 and then age 6, with contrasting info on likes and dislikes of the respective ages. This, to me, is interesting. Or better, a person at age 8 and then at age 18, showing how they've changed and grown. Or Halloween costumes through the years. That kind of thing. Basically, the whole "Big Picture", Stacy Julian concept. That's what I like.

I guess I am interested in capturing more about the moments, than the events. I am also trying to tell more of a larger story and improve my journaling.

And, frankly, "being caught up" goes against my already somewhat non-conformist way. It just feels too organized and that's not me. Also, it feels like another thing to feel guilty about - not interested in that at all!

But, I've found, there are people who LOVE to be caught up. They enjoy that feeling of accomplishment. And I say, Good for you! Just don't put that on me....

    platinum or white gold type rings. Unless you are steeped from
    the globe of fashion, you will not be uncovered to the
    nuances of seasonal jewellery developments. With the discovery of smaller-than-1-carat diamonds, the diamond
    industry started to market eternity rings and promise
    rings, featuring tiny diamonds around the shank.
