I had a mission this week---
You see, I now go to Weight Watchers once a week---
The challenge was to take a $20 bill--go to Dollarama and spend it---
But--(that big "butt" again!)---we had to spend it all--on OURSELVES---
-and whatever we purchased , had to be on, "Things that made us happy"---- just us!
And what we bought , was to be put in a gift bag--or wrapped --like a present--from ourselves-
I guess the gist of this challenge , was to show us that we seldom buy "stuff" just for us--just to make "US" happy--
I do for the dogs-- the Grandchildren--Himself--the house--
But for me?------not very often----
I bought some crazy glasses--- they looked like fun---some rocks with nice sayings on them--a hat--and a book--- then proceeded to the cash--
$7.99 the cashier said--- and this was after me walking up and down the aisles---for over an hour---
Back I went--- I needed to get to $20----
It would've been easy to buy spatulas for the house--etc etc for dogs---- but, for just me?--to make me happy?--
Eventually I threw in a hula skirt--a sketch pad--a globe of the world--
Women just don't do this kind of thing-----stuff to make us happy?---- like---it's like I don't deserve to spend money --ON ME --FOR NOTHING__-just to make me happy?
Lord love A Duck!
Why don't we?---
On the home front here- poor Tess, the long haired German (as in dog) has a very swollen outer ear---
Me thinks the cat mustve scratched her --or bitten her--
Already Ive been to town to pick up an antibiotic--
Ya never know what a day will bring--
Stay strong SpArkly People!
