I think I am beyond help. There is just no hope. So I better enjoy it. Right?
Here is what happened today.
Last night DH oh so casually mentioned that he saw a beading store. What do you mean a beading store? Where? As it turned out he saw it in Queens(NY City) , when he went to pick up DS#1 from school. He was testing a shortcut, took a wrong turn and passed a Beading store. You might say – an accident, but I am calling it “a hand of G-d”.
Of course, I wanted to take a look. But how? He leaves in the morning way to early. I mean I can not drop off the other four kids in front of their school two hours early and get on my way. Somehow it does not seem right. So we agreed that I will go to my LaLeche meeting, and then he will pick me up from there. Then we will drive together to the store . He will drop me off there and I will have to wait about two hours until he picks me up. Whole two hours in a craft store. Just me and a baby and a credit card. You can see he had to work hard to talk me into it.
So I had a nice leisurely look around. Most of the craft supplies were lover end stuff. But I found some things that I heeded and now do not have to mail order. Then I hit the beat shop. I told myself that I will be strong. After all, I have spend lots of time online searching for bargains. No need to buy just because I am there. And after all I do not do beading. I just make stitch markers. Right?
So all I was going for were the bargain bin items. They had plenty of them, but most too big or too heavy for me to use. But do not worry, I did managed to find some things.
Then My DH called me and apologised. He totally forgot. Our son had a final today. So it is going to be longer. I told him not to worry. Went and payed for my items so I would be ready when he came to pick me up. I also thought this will remove any additional temptation. The store owner was very nice. She has given me a place to sit. Well, there I was siting, nursing the baby and looking at the very cute glass beads. I started putting them together in my head, all the time reminding myself that I DO NOT DO BEADING!
I guess I do, because somehow I found my way to the register again and bought this:
I think this will be a pretty necklace.
