I May Have Too Much Time On My Hands

It started innocently enough. I was not in love with my current planner. (Yes, I’m still a paper person.) I felt I wasn’t keeping track of things or getting enough done. (In hindsight, perhaps that was just my menopausal mind.) So I started watching You Tube videos on planners. This was my first experience getting sucked into You Tube videos. Oh my stars!

All the video watching led to me getting a new planner system, getting a version of a Midori Traveler’s notebook, starting a reading journal then an art journal and collecting even more crafty things than I already had for my Smashbooks.

Here is my washi tape – I didn’t even know it existed 6 months ago, and now look at this.

I’ve ordered things from across the country and from other countries. It’s been fun and it has kept me busy. And please know I have a great career, manage a home and take care of our diva dog. It’s not like I’m sitting on the couch eating bon bons everyday. But, when my last child left, the days seemed to go on forever. Not having ANY sort of kid commitments left a void for me.

So one day, watching more planner videos, I stumbled across Organized Like Jen and her Walking Pharmacy. Well, wouldn’t you know I had to make my own Walking Pharmacy?! So off to Target I went (like I need another reason to go there!) to get another Orla Kiely cosmetic bag (like I needed that, I already have a few for my planner and Smashbooking supplies).

See, I wasn’t kidding!

Now most of the things I put in my Walking Pharmacy were already scattered about in my purse, but I’ll admit to putting a few of her ideas in there – safety pin, clipped to the zipper handle! Brilliant!

When I look in my purse and see my colorful bag I feel a sense of accomplishment, a sense of preparedness, even a little more organized than I generally see myself. Yet still I wonder, do I have a little too much time on my hands? What do you think?

Have you ever done something after seeing it on You Tube? I’d love to take a look at what you’re watching!
