Not Good for the Pschye

I went to the mall today to do some birthday shopping. (so many stores are having huge clearance sales, end of season ya know?) anyway....I got Zemi 9 outifts and 2 sets of hairclips...for only 78 bucks! I saved a ton. I also got some other items for the boys. Jason has a birthday is coming up soon. Zemi will be one on this coming Saturday!
Can you believe that?!
I hadn't been to the mall since last December.
Can you believe THAT?!

Anyway....while I am at the mall, I can see so many things I want. Shoes, purses, clothing, all so nice and fashionable and just my style. I want it so much. Nothing is stopping me from getting it except my common sense. Where am I going to wear it? I don't have a job, I don't go out much, I don't need high heels, I don't need that fancy dress. I'd rather let Jason get the nicer clothes, since he has all the business need for it. I have enough clothes anyway. My heart is saying buy it, buy it, you'll look good in that...but my mind is saying, no! you don't need it. And if I bought it, where would I wear it? All I need, I already have. I left the mall feeling great that I didn't give in, but also, not so great, that I didn't give in. A mother's sacrifice. A wife's sacrifice. And I don't mind doing it.

Although I do want some new shoes, but only sandals and flipflops. And those sneakers.
And those jeans.
And that sweater.
And that belt.

Cuz a girl does love to shop and have new clothes and accessories.

Well, MY birthday is coming too.
In a few months.

Hey Joyce! I hope you don't mind that I stop by occassionally to see how you guys are doing! I like to see how another m other of 3 does it! :)

I can SOOOOOO relate to this post. I just plain get tired of jeans, flip flops and sweats. I want to look fashionable and trendy, but what wouldn't I do to make sure my kids are that way, even if mom's not?

Happy late birthday to Zemi.
