Gahhh, is March over yet? I'm tired of depriving myself. I miss my thrift stores. It doesn't help that I opened my mailbox the other day to find this:
I know! Me too! Don't rub it in. I'm starting to feel bad about the fact that I'm not doing my part to help the economy. . . which brings me to my new resolution. . .
Sage has spring break next week. The thought of being stuck in this house with the two of them climbing all over the furniture and making messes gives me a headache. So, rather than letting them zone out on SpongeBob all week (SpongeBob = Valium for rambunctious children), we're going to do something new around L.A. every day. This city has so much to offer and we've barely scratched the surface. I may not be buying things right now, but I'll pay for experiences - museums, exhibits, independently owned kid-oriented businesses - these places need our money. Experiences create memories, not clutter. Plus, it'll give me something new to blog about.
