Driving Back Home...


Hello...

Well... I'll be travelling a couple of days for work and I wanted to make sure to post another message this week... and it's a great opportunity to confirm this "scheduled" posting works... So if you are reading this message before November is gone... then it works!!!!

Well well... so what's this post about? Does it happen to you? Is your mind very active when you are driving back home? I know minds are awesome and are always doing something... but when I'm driving back home is like I have relaxed and stressful feelings combined at the same time... Crazy, huh?






It takes me an average of 45 minutes to drive back home from the office everyday, from Monday to Friday... and that is if there's not any special happening affecting traffic. And there's so much in my mind... I review the day... all the things I did, what I left for tomorrow, things being said to me and by me, projects completed, new tasks...




And then... I remember something and I write it down... so I don't forget. And then, I remember I have to buy things, I need to clean that, I should call ... blah blah blah... Then... I get a call from mom, read a text message from my brother, tell my husband I'm on my way home, etc... (I'm not a saint, but really... I avoid using the phone while driving, I use a bluetooth, and I text if the traffic is slow and there's no risk...)...




And, driving back home, I look around and see other cars, other people, the trees, the signs, the sky... And I give thanks to God... And I turn on the radio, listen to music, sing (or make some noise), and move my hands to the rythm of music...




And one day I said to myself: How do I look while driving back home? And the traffic was too heavy... I was almost stopped. So I took my camera and turned on the timer and get ready for a picture... and this is how I look!







And I scrapped the photo... and I documented my driving back home experience. Here's the layout...





Have you ever scrapped your "driving back home" or similar experience? Do you like to scrap on everyday situations or do more traditional scrapbooking for birthdays, special occassions, etc? Please share your experience with me...

Wow, wow, wow! Speechless! Niña, a la verdad que tienes un sentimiento para escribir increible. Deberias plasmarlos en un libro.

A la verdad que estabas inspirada, me gusto mucho lo que dices ya que a veces hay que poner la mente a trabajar para despejarnos de muchas cosas y mira la belleza que creaste. Yo no tengo LO de mi y voy a seguir tu consejo. Un abrazo, Zulma.
