There’s not much new going on here. We’ll be leaving on Saturday for CA, to spend the week with Michael’s mother.
We’re terribly short handed at work and I can’t honestly say that I feel all that guilty about not being there next week. However, we have someone returning from short term disability in 2 weeks so that will help. We should also be hiring someone new as well. Maybe in a few months things will settle down.
A bit of nerdy rambling ahead…
I’m in the midst of changing my personal organization system. I use the Bullet Journal method. I started a few months ago with a composition notebook.
I knew from the beginning that the notebook was too large for me, long term. But I knew that until I figured out the basics of what I liked (what worked) I would not want to invest in a $20 notebook. So I painted, stickered and modified my cheap notebook.
Last week I found a fauxdori at Michael’s craft store. It’s styled after the Midori Traveler’s Notebook. There’s a great guide here. Tonight I got it all loaded up with inserts – two came with it and I found a set of plain 8×5 notebooks on clearance that I’m trying out.
I think that finding the right insert will be key – then I can choose the planner size accordingly. A good leather traveler’s notebook is a bit costly but like my handbags, I consider it an investment. When cared for properly, leather ages beautifully.
That’s all I’ve got for tonight. I’ll try to do at least one vacation update!
