As for the rest of my resolutions I am off to a poor start. Today should have been a swimming day... well... that didn't happen. Also I didn't get anything organized or de-cluttered. And no scrapbooking. On the brighter side of things, tomorrow is a brand new day! I can catch up on the things that I have fallen behind on, and continue on. That is how to deal with a little blip in the road, right?
So, here's to tomorrow!
Now a couple of reflections:
I am thrilled that my husband and I were able to help my cousin's daughter purchase her plane ticket to come visit us this summer! We collect a lot of travel reward points and she will be coming over to spend the month of July with us! Yay! It will be interesting to have a 15 year old girl in the house! One of the things I treasure most in life is spending time with family, so I'm thrilled that she wanted to come stay with us. I'm already planning tons of activities!
I have also been reading a lot about the Compact. If you are unfamiliar with this, it is a "buy nothing new" movement that seems to be quite popular with many bloggers right now. I first read about this in a magazine article at the hair salon, and I was fascinated with the idea of not spending! Such a foreign concept! It is definitely making me re-evaluate the purchases I make!
I am also inspired by the frugal people I am finding online! There are a lot of bloggers that are living well while spending less. An excellent reality check of our needs and wants. And a great demonstration that brand new is not always the best. A hard lesson for me!
Till next time,
