I have tried to teach my kids the value of a dollar but it seems to have escaped them. I bought the 3 oldest a pack of gum. It was a roll of bubble gum, maybe a yard long. I saw one container in the trash after 2 hours. I then heard the youngest accusing the oldest of stealing a piece of her gum. Then comes the meiser twin who unwraps his “saved” pack and begins to chew with too much relish in front of “all gone” and “been robbed”. ” Momma!!!: Make him close his mouth! MAAAAAH!? We can’t hear the tv! I begin to mentally count down the time left before the empty nest happens. Normally Swedish kids get candy on Saturday…why did I deviate from the rules?
I caused this eruption.
I must pay pennance.
As an act of contrition, I decided to think about myself for a minute….What Would Gina Do if she could? I would buy ( if I could find!)
- A set of Metal Stencils at least 3″ tall
- Tim Holtz distressed inks and pads
- HOW TO books from the hottest mixed media artists!
- The worlds largest jar of UTEE ( how did I live with out that stuff!?
- LOTS of those lovely large blooms and papers and bling fróm Prima ( who recently jacked reorders up to $200!)
- MORE of the lovely American Crafts papers that the Patterned Paper Princess got me hooked on!
- A portable die cutter/embosser…The electronic ones are still being offered at over $600 usd here! Some one must have a sizzix or something they want to get rid of!
Asking for forgivness is really cleansing. I think I will do it more often, bwahahaaah!
