I was doing SO good... And I stayed out of Anthropologie last week. And I was feeling pretty darn proud of myself. And then, I fell off the wagon. Now, some of this stuff was planned and we had money set aside for it (eg. the pond liner)...but thick plastic is darn expensive and the associated costs (ditch digger, more dirt, manual labor, etc.) caught me a bit off guard...oh and then there were the new trees and the flowers for around the pond...and the metal wind sculpture for the garden...and the new temple bell windchime...and the cute new dress for sam and the new lunchbox for kindergarten... yikes. But, now that this huge landscaping project is done, I'm done. Spending that is. I'm glad I'm not Catholic. This confession stuff isn't fun.
