Spending Freeze

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.

You forgot about Marshalls!!! But you are so right... Soon you will be able to buy all of the best teacher and non teacher dresses you love. You will be the most fanlight teacher out there, and your students will love you!!!
