Puttering, That's All

September 4th, 2006 at 06:27 pm

Mopping is one of my least favorite chores, and I did it today. Our house tends to be very neat but not so clean. The floor looks a whole lot better, and I feel proud. I also otherwise cleaned, and hung a lot of laundry, and put away laundry.

I was sure hoping that thereíd be decent TV on tonight, so I could get it bed and watch a little nonsense. However the offerings are not watchable, except maybe Antiques Roadshow. I do have the mighty stack of books.

My Labor Day Weekend was a cheap one; I spent $8.75 at garage sales. Since I do have my vacation coming on the 13th, itís not like I could really feel good about spending much. I already feel somewhat guilty about going to Croatia in the middle of the Challenge. I knew that I would not give up travel even before I knew Croatia was a possibility. I do know that folks who are struggling donít get to pop over to Europe for a couple weeks, though.

    Absolutely, do NOT feel guilty! You have worked very hard to make this trip a reality. You do a great job on the challenge, but really, your saving is so that you have the money to pursue things that make you happy. Please don't worry anymore about this and just think of the wonderful time you will have Smile

    And, I imagine the people you will be seeing in Croatia would think the money you live on for your Challenge would be enough to support a village there! A little travel goes a long ways for me to be reminded of the abundance we are all so used to.

    Buying things from my travels used to be one of my only 'wants'. I really tried to get things I would have for the rest of my life, which isn't as easy as it sounds. I do have some great crystal & china pieces..........and some lovely linens. Also jewelry.... If I bought anything else, I can't remember!! But, I remember searching for my certain item to remember each trip with! Too fun.............go..........enjoy.........memories from travel are the best!!
