Yeah it's been a while....

I didn't look to SEE how long it's been, but it's definitely been a long while! I'll try to do a long catch up post tomorrow. I have a cold, so I'm sort of keeping myself home to rest and to prevent anyone else from getting it. Made a very long list of things I want to do the rest of the weekend and next week, including catching this up some, as well as my written journal.

I finally finished off the old one so I am starting a new one. If I behave and write in it daily, then for my birthday/xmas I'm going to use my gifts  money to have a new journal custom made through a girl I follow on IG that makes AMAZING leather custom journals. It's a bit pricey, but it would be as she not only has to buy leather, etc. but makes them completely from scratch. So we'll see...

I took a shot of the past journals I have here with me, these don't include the ones stored up by my mother's place:

I write about everything (when I'm actually doing it!!) and save postcards, tickets, cards, airport tags, maps from museums and zoos, pictures, etc. The ones with me go back to 2002, but Mom's I think they go back to 1995-ish....

Anyhow, I'm sitting here listening to The Diving Board, Elton's new album, while working on the journal. Now that I've been able to find my desk by actually cleaning it up and sorting through everything... (and moving the keyboard to the little slide out drawer as the cat was jumping on it) and I finally have the room to properly work on the journal lol. It's nice!!!

Been a little slumpy lately, it's fall so I expected it. I see my doc next week, we are keeping a close eye on it. Don't want to end up going through the same as last fall and winter. Being down some has caused my energy to go down because I don't want to do as much and haven't been exercising so much. So, I'm actively working to stop the snowball effect. Which is why I made the massive list lol.

I've also gone a couple days without smoking. It's made me a little moody but it's not so bad. I used a patch for a while yesterday and today I took a few drags off the ecig to help from losing my mind. Still much better than a pack plus a day, so I'm very happy so far.

JP and I are going to see Elton in November. I'm pretty stoked about it as I'm sure she is too. It will mark the first time two members of EDLGS will be going to a show together :D I'll write a seperate post tomorrow about the fucking disaster than was ticket day lol. What a mess! We truly are lucky to have seats at all. All I can say is Visa can take their Verification Program and stuff it up there ass. Grrrrrrr. I had really great seats on hold before that fiasco, very end of the FLOOR rows. Fuckers....

Going to go, want to work on the journal another hour or so before I go to sleep. Glad I've been able to mark a few things off my list today!
Hope everyone is well.
