Some things you should know before the story:
1. I SUCK AT SHOPPING!! Even though I work hard to get it, I feel bad spending money, I want to save up for our baby and to move away from here.
2. I've been collecting Classic Winnie-The-Pooh since I was 12. I've always been practical like that, knowing that I would give them to my baby one day.
Now for the story:
Sister and I went shopping the other. We had coupons for borders so we went there first. After looking through every single cd she found two she wanted to buy and I found a whole stack but ended up putting them all back.
We then went to the mall. I found this ADORABLE Classic Winnie-The-Pooh baby scrapbook. Not only was the album cute but the pages inside were all decorated and waiting to put pictures inside. It was PERFECT but pricey so I reached out for some advise.
"You don't have a baby yet." Sister said.
Shut up shut up!! I know I know!!!
"What?! You called me for this?" Hubby said.
I decided to buy it anyways. When the cashier told me the price I about fainted. For some reason it was on sale for 76% off. I had to check several times after I left the store to make sure I wasn't dreaming. While we were still in the mall a huge thunderstorm started. We waited it out for awhile then headed home as it didn't look like it would stop anytime soon and we were tired and needed to start dinner. On the drive home I got lost.
It was wet and slippery and dark and I was scared. My sister was playing one of her new cd's and the song "I believe in you"by Vertical Horizon came on. I said a little prayer, turned around and found our way back home just like that.
Life is a delicate balance. Sometimes it's all about having the confidence to follow your heart and other times it's all about asking for help. Amazing what you can learn while shopping huh?!
