So I’m on a spending freeze until … um … September. This makes my heart weep. Maybe you don’t know how much I love to shop, but it’s a lot. We’ll see how long this really lasts – I mean, of course I’ll need to eat and pay my cell phone bill and all that other adult stuff that I think is bananas. Oh, and maybe buy the occasional new dress, like this one:
But for now, I’m trying my best: avoiding the mall, TJ Maxx, and all of the adorable little boutiques in my neighborhood. [Insert the noise of my weeping heart here.] In case you don’t know, I only have six more weeks of employment. And then the rest of my life starts. You know, the part where I’ll be Teaching for America. And when I think about that, my heart stops weeping and I can’t help but smile. Because I know this is what I’m supposed to do. With or without that fabulous dress.
