Still Wrecking This Journal

Wreck this Journal with coffee!

Wreck this Journal with coffee!

Kitty and I blithely sloshed, dripped, and finally dumped coffee dregs on the book, driving the resident-home-for-the-summer-college-know-it-all to raise an eyebrow:

“That’s sure not something you see every day!”

Truth or Consequences/TMI?
I’ve been using the book as a handy coaster all week. One day I kind of missed and splashed doused the keyboard a little. Good thing nobody saw that but me.

Right/Wrong, Left/Right, Two/Three/Whatevah!
Good thing, too, there is no right or wrong to Jamie Ridler’s Wreck this Journal fun because I am not sure if this is technically week 2 or week 3 as far as the posting sequence goes. It’s the third weekly post but only the second week of doing. The left side of my brain finds this detail bothersome. The right side says who cares.

Hope everyone is energized – Wreck ON!

What a GREAT idea…using the book as a COASTER. I’ll have to try that. Go, Barbara!!

A more fun coaster you will nevah find! :)

The coaster is a great idea! My brain is also having trouble reconciling week 3 with only two weeks of wrecking. I’ve decided to just ignore. Ha ha!

I can’t count, so whatever I’m told is what I believe. It could be week 10! haha
The coaster idea is great. Have a fabulous week!

Imagine if every day we did something where someone said, ““That’s sure not something you see every day!” What creative mischief would we get up to! Here’s to raising eyebrows and saying whatevah!

Oh anything that irks our teens, even a wee bit, is good clean fun! Lol, is there a better compliment on earth than “that’s not something you see everyday?”

Coaster…love that! I have BIG wreckin’ plans for my book this week, maybe get it done today. You commented about the writing in my journal. No, I am not sure that was what was intended, but that is part of making it my own. It’s not overly deep, meditative journaling, sometimes it is just a list or an observation or a quick written prayer. Most of the time, there is nothing. It’s all part of that being in the moment thing. And I have made darn sure I don’t get real attatched to what I have written. *grin*

Wrecking it, loving it….sticking to the beautiful pages thus far (except for the first one, see video). Thanks for the encouragement…

Wreck ON!
