Day 65 – Dear Diary



Dear diary,

I can’t believe that it’s almost the end of summer and in less than two weeks the kids are back to school.  Seems like summer goes so fast now, faster than it did when I was a kid.  It will be nice to have them  back into a routine but I will surely miss having them around.  They are really helpful…..most days.

Pretty soon the weather will start to change again and my back will not be use to the cold and I will have to get use to it again.  Thais always the hardest part of the weather changing all the time is my back doesn’t get use to it as fast as it use to.  The big question will be when to have the next surgery.  I like to have them in the fall time frame but that’s like right round the corner and I’m not ready to have it.  I might not be ready but the back is getting there.  There are more and more days in bed than I like to have. I’m sure a lot of it has to with mind over matter.  But I do know my body very well and I have always known when it was time to have another surgery and we are almost there.

It’s been a good week so far.  We are getting things cleared up with the car so hopefully soon, we can start to look for another car. We got an older car for right now.  That is my husband’s work car.  But when I’m ready to start driving, then we will look for another car.  I hope this anxiousness goes away and I can become more comfortable with driving again.  All I think about is another accident and it’s hard to concentrate.  I know deep down inside it’s not my fault but I feel like it is.  I need to get over this and start to drive again.  I like having my independence but its gone when you have to rely on others all the time. I know that my husband doesn’t mind driving me around but I don’t want to bother him, or anyone else when I can be capable and drive myself.  It’s just how amazing and fast it all happened,

Has anyone heard of a Midori traveler’s notebook before?  I’m thinking of using mine for a diary or an art journal.  It’s a beautiful leather notebook that you can take anywhere with youDSC01120

It looks amazing but wait till you touch it,  It’s even more amazing in the feeling. Its soft leather and you can stuff it to carry as many book in it that you want at a time.  It’s really customizable. Look into it if you are interested in having a traveler’s notebook that you can use in so many ways. They come in smaller sizes too. Like personal size and pocket-size.  There is other companies, smaller companies, that make Midori style notebooks.  The one that come to mind is Chic Sparrow @ . Check them out. Something different from a normal notebook.


That’s about all for this week and until next week………
