Now, I'm no stranger to craft and fabric stores. It's true that the employees might know me by name, they might even know the names and ages of my children.
Yes, I occasionally splurge. Lately though, I've been so very good! Only going in with my 40% coupon or buying the 1 thing that's on sale and then stopping in the next week to get another thing on sale that I WILL use, that I DO have plans for.
Yet I get teased by my Farmer. Tales of my splurges are grossly exaggerated and I am made to feel guilty. I look at a skein of yarn I bought for $2 on sale and think, "maybe I should have bought 4 cucumbers with that money instead."
But folks, now... now...
---- THE GUILT STOPS HERE.------
This was my splurge 2 weeks ago:
fabric: 40% off for Christmas presents
yarn: 30% off for Christmas and wedding presents
Farmer told me there was an auction he wanted to go to 2 days ago. He's been needing to replace the big Deutz tractor and there was something up there that caught his eye. Normally, Farmer has a set number in his head on how high he'll go and he sticks to that come heaven or high water, but this time... he splurged. And not 5 skeins of yarn splurged either. He called me up and said he bought this...
No folks. This tractor won't replace the Deutz, as you can see... not enough power. It'll replace a different tractor; one I had no idea Farmer wanted to replace (and one I'm not quite sure he knew he wanted to replace either).
