And the realization that I am out of hangers,closet space and rubbermaid tubs for out-of-season wares that need to be stored.
I have a full tub of clothing to be Ebay-ed.
And have donated twice to my favorite thrift store, being very careful not to repurchase anything I gave them myself!
Just kidding. I am not that bad!
The truth of the matter is that it would probably be pretty good for me not buy anything new until September 1st and take a break from single-handedly trying to revive this nations economy.
Because that is how I have justified all my excessive shopping for the past year and a half.
And I usually mention that as I swipe away with my debit card.
"Just trying to do my part for this great country!" I inform the sales clerks.
But it sounds good, eh?
And besides, I don't want to get in trouble again.
The hubs and I have been doing a lot of work on our home since the late winter/early spring.
Usually we tackle 1 large home improvement project a year, but this year my father in law has been up visiting a lot from South Carolina, and we are lucky that he loves working on our home!
I already showed you the bathroom reno.
Then he and hubs finished our garage floor with some fancy kind of enamel paint looking stuff.
All I know is it made the hubs happy.
While I was in St.Louis in April I was emailing back and forth with the man who eventually came and did this:
Isn't it pretty?
The only other thing that could make me as happy as looking at my lovely walkway and steps would be to own a Hermes Kelly bag.
And I do believe that this whole project cost less than that handbag would.
And now Pops is here again yesterday and today installing a new storm door and front door combo.
Thus my need to "pump the brakes" as my friend Pamela would say.
So that is where we are.
And I'm nervous.
And misery loves company, soooooo....
Who wants in???
