A Daybook Entry.......Or Something Like That....Just Not Today
I have seen The Simple Woman's Daybook at various places, such as Bonita's and Sue J's blogs....among other places. I believe it is originally from Peggy.
Anyway, (I'll get back to that in a moment...if I remember to). This year we bought season passes to Kings Dominion (Amusement Park). My sister ET did too. It was probably one of the best investments we've made in a long time. I doubt there is anywhere we could go for even one weekend that would have cost less and we have made it a point to go once or twice a week.
I probably have as much fun as the kids. I love roller coasters and probably all of the rides, as long as they don't spin. I can go speeding along at 80 mph on a roller coaster, but put me on a carousel and after 3 or 4 rotations I really feel pretty ill.
Unfortunately, roller coasters and degenerative disks in your back just don't go well together.
I am not very good at just sitting. I usually need to be doing something. (however, I have learned to occasionally Shut Up And Listen).
Now when we go to Kings Dominion, I take my "Goodie Bag".
It is a back pack with a book, a notebook, a puzzle book, and a camera . I still get the exercise of walking all over the park with the kids, but when they ride the rides, i sit down (with the other little old ladies) and either read, write, or take pictures.
One of the things I did, was copy out The Simple Woman's Daybook and took that with me to do there. I thought it would put a different perspective on things, since they are usually done from ones home. I was going to type it our here, however, it has taken an entire post for me to type out what I was going to do...SO, my NEXT post will be The Simple Woman's Daybook from Kings Dominion....you know, I'm not sure how I feel about calling myself simple. I'm very sure I have been called many things, but Simple isn't one of them. I liked it when Linda at 2nd Cup of Coffee called me A Whirling Dervish.
Maybe I'll just call it Today, Here and Now, or My Daybook. Then again, if I do that but take it completely from The Simple Woman's Daybook, it may look like I'm trying to commit perjury .... wait ...not perjury, I mean plagiarism. Hhhmmm... maybe I SHOULD call it The Simple Woman's Daybook. I DON'T KNOW!! Perhaps I'll call it Post #267
Nope, after checking the Thesaurus, and choosing the Synonyms that I wanted (there were some in there that weren't quite as nice), I found that Simple can also mean:
Opposite of MyADHDMe
(Ok, I added the last one)
SO, My next post will be some kind of Daybook. On the other hand, I may forget all about this and write about something completely different...... whew..............
