Chugging along.

I feel a lot better today which I think comes from the morning workout.  But I'm still not feeling great about myself.  I didn't even realize it until this morning when I realized that I brought jeans to wear to work for the 2nd day in a row. 

I typically wear jeans on Friday...maybe one other day.  But mostly I don't.  I like to dress up and make fun fashion choices.  In fact, I didn't even get bothered when the guys at work razzed me for my knee socks (see January picture).  I LOVE my knee socks and I want more of them.  :)  But I would be bothered today.  If someone made a joke about my outfit today, I would feel bad about it.  So I'm just keeping things simple until I feel like my badass self again.

Random:  Did I tell you I saw Air Supply last weekend?  That was so ridiculously awesome.

So, I have been thinking a lot about my London trip.  It is less than 6 months away which seems crazy.  It sounds like a long time from now, but it isn't.  And there are still so many things to do.  I had mentioned before that I wanted to do something special to really remember this trip. 

I have decided that I want to find little tiny notebooks (with thicker paper) and have people I meet write their name, country and the word "live" (my 2012 word) in their native language.  I thought that when I get home, I'm going to select the picture or pictures that mean the most to me and I will have them framed in a large frame (kind of shadowbox idea) surrounded by these pieces of paper. 

I'm still working it out, but I'm hoping the general idea will come together as I find the right materials.  If you creative people have any ideas to help me, please let me know!

First person to write in the book...you. Write Lee-uv. It's Texan, you know it is. It's ok to laugh. I say it that way too.

What a great idea on the book! I love it!

I've kinda been in a funk lately too. I'm hoping my run after work will help me out of it!

Love Air Supply!! I also completely approve of your memory idea as I think I suggested the part about writing the word live! If I didn't think of it, don't tell me cause I'm all geeked up it was my idea. :)
