Diary of a journaling girl #2

It’s been quiet on this blog, I apologize! It wasn’t my intention but life got in the way. For people who visit this blog for the first time, I fell off my bike 60 days ago and was bedbound for over 50 days because of it. In the last 2 weeks I have been out of bed more often and training really hard to get my strength and stamina back and it has consumed most of my energy. I am far from my end goal but it’s been great getting my life back piece by piece. I still need a walker when I go out but I haven’t used my wheelchair in a while!

My boyfriend and I have also worked hard of my craft room and office. He did most of the work but I gave directions and helped declutter and organize. I wanted the room to make more sense as it was all over the place before. Now I have a set place for my computer, a place for my printer/laminator/cutting machine/stapler etc. and a set place for crafting. And all my supplies are in the corner where they belong. So I spend a lot less time going around the room getting all my stuff. I love my crafting corner the most, my bright yellow table and RÅSKOG cart make me so happy. Even though I can not spend a lot of time in the room as I can not sit for long periods of time, every second in the room makes me happy. Would you guys like a craft room/office tour? And would you prefer video form or just photos and text?

Next Wednesday is my boyfriends birthday and he is having a party on Saturday. I am an avid baker and I love baking loads of goodies for our birthday parties. This year I am still baking but I am not going as crazy as I would normally go. I also forced my boyfriend to take next Friday off work to help me bake so I can make sure I will get enough rest and don’t have to bend and/or lift anything. On his birthday itself we are going out to dinner, I hope I can make it! I am just going to spend the rest of the day in bed so I will have enough energy.

This week I am going to work on my daily routine. I want to make a list of all the blog content I want to create and going to spend a little bit of time every day working on it. I also want to start journaling more regularly as I journal about once every 10 days now and I would prefer to journal every other day or so. I can’t wait to feel more myself again after spending such a long time in bed. I will always have a disability but I am generally able to make it work with my hobbies and responsibilities. I am even excited about being able to cook and clean again! I would give money to be able to scrub my own toilet again, and yes I am aware that’s a weird thing to say. But I hate having to rely on other people, I love my independence.
