HEY! I warned you!
I'm feeling overwhelmed.
I haven't bought one Christmas gift yet!
(OK! I have 2 for a gift exchange dinner but those don't count because my sister picked them up for me.)
I didn't even put up outside lights this year!
No wreath on the front door.
Is it too late?
I feel like it's too late.
I didn't decorate the house because it's a mess.
I have half done remodeling projects.
Maybe I could drape twinkle lights over paint cans.
I could sprinkle glitter over the dust.
I've let everything kind of slide while I was working on things for my booth.
I have projects all over the kitchen table.
I thought I could spray paint something by holding it out the back door.
It's 22 degrees out.
But a burst of wind blew the spray back in and now my eyeglasses are speckled
and the floor inside the door has a faint color of turquoise.
But Hey, I'm going to tile that...SOMEDAY.
I took all my found/upcycled items out to my booth and picked up my first check!
OK, yes I spent more than that on Xmas decorations for it but....
At least I didn't have to pay THEM!
I stopped at Target to get some dog food that was on sale.
They are HIRING.
Maybe I should have done that with my time instead.
One of my friends told me that if I hadn't spent the cash for the booth, and the framework and the decorations and the paint and all the things I've bought at the thrift shops or Estate sales....
that I could have put that time and cash towards tiling my backsplash and working on my house.
I told someone else about her statement, to which SHE replied -
"Yeah, I too wondered why you did the booth thing"
At least my Bloggers friends understand.
The other night, I was so upset that I didn't work on a damn thing.
I just sat and watched TV and brushed my dogs.
It was actually nice.
One of my best friends told me that I create my own stress.
Maybe she's right.
Maybe I need to stop spending on art supplies and "treasures".
Maybe I need to just STOP trying to find a way to make cash,
and just SAVE some.
And as John Lennon said -
"Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans."
Yep, today is the 30th anniversary of the tragic murder.
30 years ago.
Sorry for the downer post.
