Here I am whinging because I can’t subscribe to a magazine immediately (luxury item, not a need!) and I’ve just read on a friends blog that she and her hubby are short their rent money because she had to replace her glasses. Kind of puts my ‘issues’ into perspective! Ok, I feel like a worm, extremely selfish, low-life human being…..
Especially in light of this…. I bought fabric today! I needed some other colours of floss so I went to spotlight and came home with two lengths of fabric to make some summer work shirts out of… What I should have done, being that I only have a few summer work shirts (hang on, I’m only going to be working two days a week, how many do I need???) is buy them secondhand. I really suck at this Compacting… Bring on April and freedom!!!
This all doesn’t say much about my self-control or commitment does it…. Nine days into Compacting and I’ve broken the pledge already. I can sook, flagellate myself, or get over it and move on. I think the last option is the best one.
I guess the best thing now is to actually make the shirts, instead of having the fabric get lost in my stash, like 90% of the rest of the fabric I’ve bought in the last year! Hubby agrees… He’s on my case too. Sigh…
