I have always found a way to get what I want. Now, that sounds sort of bad but hear me out. As a kid when I wanted a pair of black Converse, Mom said, I’m not buying you those ugly shoes, you want them you buy them. I was in 5th grade so I babysat and did a load of chores to earn the money. But in the end, you can bet I got those shoes. This pretty much applies to my whole life, when I want something I get it. Of course as I got older it got easier, with outside babysitting jobs and eventually real work. I got my drivers licence, car and first job all in the same breath. I had to have money, not just for gas but for life. Each new item I would find a must have I would come home and find a way. I would get so excited planning out a budget or a way to earn more and figure exactly how long it would take before the coveted item would be mine. How many weeks at this job or how long until the next bonus check.
Well, now that I’m not working I’m hosed! No allowance, I don’t get paid for chores, I can’t just do extra laundry or clean my room or wash the car. I don’t get paid for that or anything. It sucks! I knew that this would happen as soon as I quit my job and don’t misunderstand, Nathan is far better than “stuff” but I happen to be a “stuff” person. (that’s not a pretty thing to admit!) So, what’s got me all is a tizzy? Well, I found a really awesome cabinet yesterday that I want for the living room. I LUVE it! Now back in my bonus check days I’d just tell Mike I was buying it and that would be that. Now? It has to be a discussion, I have to “ask” and I don’t like that one bit! He hasn’t given me an answer yet cause I really suck at asking and he may not have known that I was totally serious, I don’t want to beg so to speak, but I am crossing my fingers. I did offer to do his laundry but he rememberd pretty quickly that I already do that. Heh! I don’t like that I have given up the ability to have what I want when I want it. But, no one will hire you just until I make enough for this one cabinet and I’m outta here. Darn-it.
Just look how cute!
And look- I have the perfect spot!
yeah, I taped it off. WHAT? You have to check scale people- SCALE!
