Day 273 –
Day 274 – After over a week of a nasty cough, the sight of antibiotics was the most beautiful thing I had seen all week!
Day 275 –
Day 276 – With the change of seasons and two kids, I feel like I’m constantly trying to find clothes for them that a) fit properly and b) warm/cool enough for the changing weather. Now that they are really growing like weeds, I’m noticing how freaking expensive these little people are! But I decided to be responsible and take 15 minutes to go through our fall/winter gear to see what we really had that would work. The end result was staggering. Lil B has enough fall coats to wear a new one each day for a week! AJ is a little less fortunate, but still has two solid jackets to wear. Why was I going to spend money on them again? I could buy shoes for me instead!!!
hmmmm… maybe I should look in the closet and take stock of my own gear before shopping? Boo.
Day 277 –
Day 278 – I like pretty things. I do. Like tall beds that require a ladder to get into. And big fluffy feather duvet. And ornate bedside lamps. But I can’t afford all of those things. Well, I could, but I choose not to get them and prioritise elsewhere.
So when the fall weather hits and I’m feeling the urge to shop for new bedroom accoutrement, I get bummed out. To cheer myself up, I searched through our cupboards where I had stored all of our perfect-for-chilly-weather blankets and brought out a ridiculous amount of them. Then I proceeded to Martha Stewart-up my bed to the best of my abilities. Sure, the blankets are mismatched. Sure they aren’t without their faults. But at least when I’m feeling cold and blue, I can crawl into a “new” warm haven of heavy blanket deliciousness.
