Happy End of Summer to me...

Okay... so I've been contemplating a HUGE purchase, did the math, contacted the banks, even visited the Dealers who sell the objects I was considering... Yeah. I thought it sounded like a doable thing... I was actually considering buying a little home to put in my mom's front field. Then I did the connection of the heart to the brain thing.. (sometimes a mistake?)... I don't want a new home. I'm fine, I guess, right here. I can't afford a new home plus the one I have over the hill. If I bought this thing, I would be HUGELY in debt for the next 30 years... HUGELY... a bigger payment than I have ever made for anything... every month... every thirty days... Never could I retire, never breathe without knowing I wouldn't be out of debt until age 85... So, goodbye little green house. I don't think I'll really miss you long. I really couldn't have helped my mom out as much from her front field as I think I do right here...
And today I bought myself a big big... big toy. I bit the bullet and got myself a Cricut Expression~!!!!! If you've ever stayed up late, you've seen the infomercial, and you've wanted one. I know you have? haha? Really!??? You haven't? aw... Well, I have been coveting it all year, so today Wally World offered it to me, along with a couple of print cartridges... Whew! Still not a house payment, though! not even one of the 360 I would have had to make. The bank would have more than doubled its money... and with this cricut, I can create limitless fun.. All teachers should never be without it... and best of all, it's easy!!! (WE SHALL SEE!!!) Hugs.. If I make anything, I'll be sure and show it to you! (The goblet is plastic and new, too.. and that's diet coke in case you were worried!) Don't ask me what the watch is for.

Your mom's house sounds like my mom's and I would greive my things too if I had to move.

There are many prim blogs out there. This blog belongs another Linda, who also was featured in COuntry Sampler magazine. She has a nice list of primitive blogs you can check out. There is a whole community of us gals out there. http://primpyourpad.blogspot.com/ There are enough to keep you busy for quite awhile! Enjoy!!

I'm kind of sad. I got caught up in the little house dream with you. You probably realized that since I was all for it, it must be a bad idea. Can't argue that point. However, I may have to get that shower we discussed, because I can't stop thinking about it. And what's more, I can't understand why you need a Cricut thing when you already own a Bedazzler AND a Badge-A-Matic!

Gayla,

Sorry about the house. I know it took forever to pay for ours but I wouldn't want to try to make a mortgage payment on my retirement and SS.

As for the Cricut....I want one. My daughter-in-law has one but I think I need one too. At least I could borrow all her cartridges.
