At one point, just after Jul, I almost ran out of money. I had some big bills
and a car service to pay, and I assumed that I had been wasteful
during the holidays. I vowed that the New year would see a more frugal me.
Then I noticed that I hadn't been paid for the month of October (!)
I guess the Halloween craziness made me forget to check...
I called it in and suddenly I had an untouched paycheck at my disposal!
It all left me in a contradictory mood. On the one hand I am clearing out,
putting up things for sale - even furniture and heirlooms - to save money.
On the other, I am sales shopping and browsing EBay for new dresses,
games and - furniture. I bought this amazing sugar skull carpet last week,
and I have my heart set on this new couch at IKEA, called Stocksund.
while at the same time planning a rebuild for more closet space.
Oh, and I bought a minty tulle princess dress. I'm 37 years old.
They might have to change my diagnosis... :)
So, like in every January since I hit my 30's, there are no
resolutions made. There is only the increasing confusion
over time spinning faster and faster, and a growing wish
to hold on to life's little pleasures.
(None of these pictures are mine, but I think I have finally
figured out my camera situation - stay tuned!)
