Groan.
I am never eating again.
++++
It was a lovely Christmas and a fine time was had by all.
And now onto the best shopping day of the year.
I am returning two gifts today, one an exchange and the other a refund.
For some reason this makes me happy. I am the kind of shopper that likes to put things in my cart and walk around the store with them, and then at the end of the visit, I return half of them to their original spot and buy only what's left. It seems like I am buying everything, but then I don't and that eliminates the regret part of shopping. If I have any real regrets about NOT buying something, it is still there at the spot I left it. Retrievable. Yet I don't go back, so I know I made the right choice.
The yellow sweater I got for Dave is too big and couldn't possibly shrink enough to make it wearable, and if I get to the store at the start of business I am sure to find the medium size one waiting there for me. This is another feature of waiting til the 23rd to shop. Mostly everything still left then will still be there today.
And I am returning the emerald and diamond pendant Dave got for me. It was a lovely gift, but way too subtle and exquisite and tasteful for me. And tiny. It is the thought that counts and he thought he would get me a pendant to go with the earrings that he got me four years ago. So that counts quite a lot in my book. I would much rather have a nice credit on my Visa bill than another lovely piece of jewelry. Am I a spoil sport? I hope not.
There are things money can buy and things that it can't. I am truly madly deeply happy with my life and my marriage and my job and my friends and just can't take in a bit more.
Consequently, I woke up thinking that I need to 'redistribute' some of my quilts. I am going to spend this afternoon pulling out about 25 quilts from my archives to find new homes for them. They will go to the offices/homes of friends and family and if there are any leftovers, I will put a very special price on them and bring them with me to my next several gigs.
I like an empty shelf almost as much as a full one.

  1. I'm the same type of shopper and my husband cringes when I take items out of the cart at the end of my shopping trip!! But, hey...he's learning to live with it - he doesn't shop with me too often.

  2. I am a similar shopper.. I shop for the possibilities, but purchase for the realities.

    This year, we were careful with our gifts (neither of us much into "stuff"). So I ordered one book from Amazon.. and Steve ordered 2.

    As we are all we have to shop for, it will not be a painful January bill paying time.

  3. We had a Christmas tree, but little to no presents underneath. Our "thing" the last couple of years has been to "do" things instead of buy things.
    Sounds like you are in a really good place. Congratulations!!!
