I Miss My Little Notebook 4

For a while I really enjoyed carrying around my little notebook. It made me feel calm for some odd reason. Then one day, out of the blue, I didn’t want to carry it around anymore. 🙁 I tucked it away in my netbook bag and promptly forgot about it for 5 1/2 months.

My poor little notebook took quite a beating getting tossed around in that bag!

I tried to touch up the damage with a black sharpie, but the sharpie is too see through to really be effective. I’ll have to try some paint instead.

All of a sudden, on my ride home today, I wanted my notebook – NOW. I couldn’t get home quick enough to start writing things in it. My life has felt so out of whack lately and I DESPERATELY need something to calm me down. I happily jotted down a few things I needed/wanted to do, and crossed items off the list as I completed them. There weren’t that many items on the list tonight and that’s just fine – I overwhelm too easily these days. I really just have one more item I want to complete: watermark a couple pictures and post them on a blog. Sounds easy, right? This is something I wanted to get done over a week ago!

Well… now that I got the notebook thoughts out of my head and written down, maybe I will attempt the other project. I REALLY  hope this notebook phase lasts this time. I need a lot more organization and structure right now.

    Awww, look at it! It DID take a beating. I was going to suggest sharpie; disappointed it didn’t work. I never really got the notebook you sent me going in any permanent way, but you’ve just inspired me to pull it out again also! I really need more organization and structure right now myself. Plus, it would be really useful to me if I could write things down as I think of them instead of waiting until I get home. That NEVER works.

      It works to a degree. In the time it took me to log in and approve your comment – I forgot one out of two things I wanted to write down. :/ Doesn’t help that I got distracted by rebate items that put me over the spending requirement for a Newegg Amex deal – and I almost forgot to eat my breakfast! It’s Tuesday, isn’t it? 😉

      I’m quite sure a little paint will fix those patches nicely. Just need to find some around here.

    Raising my hand as another one that needs more structure and organization. I like the thought of note booking…however my handwriting has really gotten bad lately…and writing feels awkward. 🙁

      Don’t let that stop you! Your options aren’t tied to a notebook. What else do you have at your fingertips? Computer? Phone? Tablet? You could set up something on Google Docs that would be accessible by all of the above. Get creative and find something that works for you. What’s important is having it quickly available to you when you have a thought you need to “write down” – how you organize that can be done many different ways. 🙂
