I SPEND MONEY!
This week was one of those stressful, busy, everything going wrong kind of times. But, I made it to Friday and was looking forward to relaxing and staying in my pajamas a lot. It didn't turn out that way (not yet...I'm heading there soon!).
My husband commutes by bicycle, and last night had stopped at the grocery store on his way home, but when he came out, the bike was gone. The lock was cut and all evidence of ever even owning a bike were gone. I hate thieves! I feel sick about it.
I have done all those games we do: "it's only a bike.", " At least we have the money to replace it.", " Maybe the person who stole it will get their karmic revenge.", " maybe we'll actually get the bike back some day if they try to pawn it.", and so on....
But, instead of being in my pajamas today, we had to buy a new bike. I do always try to find a silver lining or two in these things. One of them is my new bracelet! I have been eyeing this at a shop downtown (right next to the bike shop!) for over a year but kept resisting because of the price....but, wouldn't ya know, it was back in the little Sale room today for 50% off! Meant to be?...or me coming up with a way to justify it? Ha! Either way, I love it!! And, I was so glad they still had the deer!
And, I also found these great buttons!! Me? I think so!
So, I am moving on with my day....going to make some tea, sit and relax for a bit, and get back to my silk cocoon books (missed that deadline I set for myself!).
