My Screw-ups 1

I bought this souvenier book at Disney World in 1983 and recently took it out of my keepsake tote to both look through it and photograph it for my blog. I hadn't seen it since the early 1990s so it was fun doing this. I thought that I had been very careful when putting it away only the next time that I went into that tote for something else I discovered something very upsetting - when I had put my scrapbook binder back in there the cover and first few pages of this book had fallen down and gotten ruined by that binder. I had this for all these years and it was in perfect condition and now it looks pretty bad as you can probably tell by the top photo. Originally I had scanned it for here. I know that I shouldn't beat myself up about this screw up but it's very hard not to because it seems like I am always doing something stupid even when I am trying to be so careful. It's like my brain is incapable of learning from my mistakes which is very frustrating.

It doesn't really look too bad! Maybe if you put it into a scrap book of your trip, it will look ok, be in a form that will help protect it, and become easier to look at and appreciate.

I've never been there... hope to someday!

I guess that it could have been worse. Thanks for the suggestion. It just fit into one of those sheet protector pages which I put in my scrapbook binder where I think that I might've had it at one point and am not sure why I took it out and put it next to some other books in that tote.

It would be great if you do get to go to Disney World. Now there are so many more things to do and see in that area compared to 1983. Yikes, in 2 years it'll be 30 years ago since our Florida vacation. My brother and I should save up to to go there then.
