Another filofax order

I ordered another Filofax.  I told myself not to spend and to be happy with what I have, but that “want” kept nagging.  I think I was feeling this way because my order with Pens & Leather came to nothing 😦  I ordered a chilli pocket Cuban and a red (original order was for a raspberry but they “ran” out of that color) Metropol personal size.  Ordered it on 3/22/13 and waited and waited.  So around 4/12/13 I requested to cancel the order and receive a email from them “are you sure? we’re going to ship it soon”.  WHAT A TEASER!  I replied okay, I want it if you are mailing that day, if not, I didn’t want to wait any longer and just cancel it.  I receive the email stating it’s been shipped and here’s the tracker number, etc etc etc.  Of course, everyone knows we’re gonna click on that tracking number EVERYDAY!!  The funny thing is mine would say “shipping info received” but no location listed, nothing.  That was 4/13/13.  Last night I checked again and same information.  I felt like I was being given the run around and my filos were never mailed.  Somehow they’re able to put a bogus tracking number…to kinda shut me up and make me wait longer??  Long story short, I disputed the charge with Paypal and received a refund today 🙂

The “craving” was still there so I started googling and prowling Ebay, Adspot, Amazon.  This time I wanted a personal size yellow Filofax.  I saw a great blog (can’t remember the name) about a pretty yellow personal Piazza.  Found one at a website called Bedol. Ordered it and now the waiting begans…. Stay tuned!

Week on two pages change

Yesterday I was able to get the week on two pages refill from a new friend I made on philofaxy.  So I took out my orange paper setup and decorated my new setup in….orange. I’m not sure why I’m on a orange kick but that’s the way I felt yesterday. Haha here it is ( thanks again to Kim):

My dog Jake

Jake is five and a half yrs old. He’s a shih tzu and my first house dog. Or I like to say “my fur baby”.  My kids are college age and flew the coop so its just me and hubby. It was sad at first but of course as time goes by, you adjust.  No need to worry about dinner and the laundry pile is much easier to overcome. 🙂

Anyway I bought Jake from a breeder when he was one yr old. Back then I never heard of puppy mills…and I think that is where he came from. He will not sleep in a kennel. When he came home with us in 2007, he was such a sad little dog and you could tell he never had a toy.

What a difference he is today! Has tons of toys, sleeps on our bed and anywhere he chooses, and hardly whimpers in his sleep.

My Filofax setup

I am currently using a A5 Holborn Zipped in wine for about a month now. Before this I was using a red Dakota A5, but gave it away to my niece to use when she attends college (Cornell?). Anyway here’s a photo of my week on two pages that I bought on etsy.com.
