So I was rolling along doing fabulously at not spending money--until I got the Ballard Designs catalog in the mail. I swear I get panick attacks when I see something amazing on a really good sale that I cannot take part in. I mean, how am I supposed to stand idly by while Ballard is selling this clock for 160 bucks--less than half of the normal price (and have I mentioned that my favorite decorating color is red? And this sucker is almost 4 feet in diameter!)
And this 6'x9'real wool rug is on sale for $120--an even a smaller fraction of the normal price?
And it gets even worse! Ballarddesigns.com is taking an additional 15% off everything until tomorrow!
SERIOUSLY--I need someone to talk me through this. A gigantic red clock that would look awesome anywhere is lame, right? And who needs a real wool rug that matches all the new greens in my house, anyway? And who am I kidding? Chances are, in a few months, people won't even be using clocks or rugs anymore....Yeah, that's right...
I should have just the right amount of self control to get through this because I did withstand a temptation that I was faced with on Sunday. But I just don't know if I can do it! Please help me!
On a mother load...What? Did someone just say that it is supposed to be on another note? Ahhhhhh! Well then, on another note--guess who's been on time three weeks in a row for church? We're talking IN the building, SITTING DOWN before the clock strikes ten. I know. Pretty amazing.
And Camp is in charge of family night tonight, and earlier today he told me that the lesson is going to be on private parts. Yikes! This should be interesting..
Man, I REALLY NEED that clock and rug...
