It has been a busy couple of weeks for me. It was my husband's 30th birthday on the 12th and I had a big surprise birthday party planned out. I'm happy to say my plans were a huge success! Turning 30 can be such a depressing age. You are no longer in your twenties, it just feels like, geez 30 years of my life has now gone by. You reflect on what you have and haven't accomplished. Some a sad by the fact that you are not going to get your youth back. My husband has a lot to be proud of and I am glad we were able to celebrate with lots of family and friends.
As for me, I have switched out of my Pocket Malden into my Personal Holborn. I needed to get a monthly insert and after failing miserably to print out Ray & Steve's inserts, I needed something else, and quick. So, I went to my local Staples. Almost no luck, they didn't have anymore 2012 refills. Luckily they had some 2012/2013 planners on sale. So, I found this Weekly/Monthly Day Runner.
I wanted only the monthly pages. Of course I had to do a little tweaking. I ripped them out of the the binding.
I cut the frayed edges and taped it with washi tape. Next, I trimmed tape side a bit so it matches the size of filofax pages. Then, with my handy dandy Rapesco Punch, I punch out the holes. And WALA!!!!
It works out pretty well for now. I like how the months are tabbed already, it helps not having to add extra bulk to the filofax.
Here is how my week went. A bit stressed out lately with my two kids. They really test my patience. Sometimes my stress just gets the best of me, and suddenly all my problems just come out at the same time. So, I found this quote that made me feel better:
"Be strong now because things will get better. It might be stormy now, but it can't rain forever."
Also, I decided to give this a try. I took some of my stickers and punched them to put in my filofax. Just having the stickers there and seeing it makes me smile. =)
