I Can't Believe It!

I cant believe it is almost 2009!
So strange to me how time flies.
As some of you know, I am obsessed with stationary especially the world of calendars, planners, etc. I wanted to purchase my dream diary for my purse this year, but the idea was vetoed by my budget conscious husband (I know he is right). The problem is, I purchased this aforementioned "dream diary" while on a layover over in London in 2006 when I went to Malta. I used it for some of 2007 (first month) and then lost it until recently. Funny thing is (and scary) I bought it not aware of the currency exchange so didn't really know what I spent until it was too late and I got home to the statement! oops! Another funny thing, did you know the days and numbers of the calendar are the same in 2009 as they were in 2007. I thought for a moment, it would add to my character if I used that old 2007 diary for this upcoming year, just for some panache and a laugh! ***After checking the calendar again, I realized this statement is not true, the dates do not match up - crap! I was actually considering that.
Anyway, my budget (per the Mister) was $15 dollars this year, I can't even get refills for my cute Kate Spade leather organizer for $15 and yes, I have to have the Kate Spade brand for the Kate Spade organizer, otherwise I would be doing Kate (and myself) and disservice.
So, this past weekend we went to the local gift shop and I found this cute Cath Kidson calendar and I love it! I have already filled it with birthday's and important events for next year. I love a new calendar so empty yet ready to be filled with excited events in the future. But that other one is still in the back of my mind.
One day, I may get my dream diary again (I love how in the UK it is a diary not a calendar or planner). Until then, I will stick with my $12.99 plastic covered purse calendar. Hey, it is one step up from the free pocket calendars they used to hand out at the local Hallmark store when I was growing up. No, I will not post a link to my dream diary, I am too embarrassed at the price.
May your calendar for 2009 be filled with lovely events.
