I am so grounded.

What was I thinking? I just got back from Pebbles. yes, I know, it's not Monday. But I thought (foolishly) I only need a couple of pieces of paper for a particular layout I am working on. What in my past led me believe that I was even capable of buying only a couple of pieces of paper? I just spent $33. Okay, now some of you right now are thinking, congrats- you just got out of Pebbles only spending $33. The rest of you that are in my financial tax bracket are as horrified as I. I do not have $33 in my budget to spend on paper right now, or hardly ever, for that matter. And the stickler is that makes a total of like, $70 in the last month I have spent. That justifies caning, at the very least. The worst part is, I can't even discipline myself- it's not like I can pay it back out of allowance, or work it off or something.. it's just GONE. However, it will be reincarnated in the form of scrapbook art. I gave the money new life, right? It's just been upgraded. I think I am justifying myself by thinking, I need it for my HOF layouts. It's not for me. It's for the contest. And it's not even Monday!!!Who am I kidding? I'm so grounded.

It's a pisser that it wasn't on a Monday, but I've done the same thing. Hopefully you got a lot of great stuff for the money--and surely it's an investment in your Hall of Fame future. If you end needing groceries at the end of the month we'll all pool some things and help you out.

I have done this more times than I care to count. And yes, it is an investment in the Hall of Fame project. When that $500 comes in, you can carve out $33 to pay yourself back. Who are we kidding, though? It will just get spent at Pebbles again!

OUCH Jessie! Don't know if we are in the same bracket money wise, but I can feel your pain...I have had to make myself carry cash only when I go in a scrap store otherwise it is too easy for me to start adding things on. What is special about Monday's at Pebbles?
