This cup of coffee is the highlight of my day. It all started this morning when I woke up and my throat was on fire. Then came the fever/chills and the aches and pains. When the kids got up they were miserable and coughing and complaining of sore throats so I let the girls stay home to get better. An hour later they were miraculously healed and I was left chasing after all 3 for the remainder of the day. I was not miraculously healed after an hour.
All day long all 3 of them did nothing but fight and yell at each other. It has not been a good day. I am feeling completely guilty about the amount of $ I have spent in the last 3 days. It is a sickening amount that I am not going to admit so I can continue to be in denial. In my defense it was stuff we needed( girls mattresses were worn completely thin so I had to get their new ones out of layaway at Mattress Firm) and also stuff I had been yearning for for a long time.
None of the money spent was our regular income so I know I shouldn't feel too guilty but I do. I am a thrifty shopper. I can make almost anything happen within a budget and I let myself forget about that this week. Hopefully the remorse will pass. I did get some really great things I will share soon.
I have also been feeling very weighed down lately. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE our tiny little house. Hubby does too which is saying a lot because he usually doesn't like anywhere we live. We are insanely happy here. I love how I have it decorated but I still feel like it isn't quite there yet. I hate that feeling and know that fixing a few small details will cost more $. I think I am going to challenge myself though and try to make it happen very frugally.
I want it to be super cosy for fall and winter so hopefully I can come up with little changes that have a big impact. My coffee is getting cold now which is a bummer because the scorching hot liquid was really helping my throat. I am beyond miserable and should probably be lying down instead of blogging and browsing Flickr. Night all. Hope you have a wonderfully cozy fall evening.
