I have had a fun morning! I have spent $$$ on ME! I bought three shirts and one pair of New Balance 928 tennis shoes this morning. With a wedding earlier in the summer, and my part-time post-retirement job on summer break, I had been very careful with $$$, and certainly I would have been the last person that I would have spent $$$ on.
I was out TRYING to walk this morning [foot injury - trying to avoid surgery if at all possible for various reasons] when it occurred to me that I had worn out my last pair of New Balance 92?s and hadn't replaced them yet. Actually, the truth is, I probably needed to have replaced them WELL before I chose not to wear them any long. That particular # has the rollbar and the most stabilization for my poor little [well, not so little - I had to buy 10s to accomodate orthotics] foot. I chose to wear the new ones out of the store and already I am not having to think about how I choose to place my foot and if my gait is correct as much. I chose to buy the white ones, but I really need to get the beige and black ones as well.
I also bought a couple of casual tshirts and a dressier tshirt [long sleeved] that will look nice with khakis for work. Yay!
Then it occurred to me....
I met my goal for BLC22, and my reward was going to be a new sewing machine, and one with more quilting capabilities....hmmmmmmmmmmm..
.....I wasn't going to get an expensive one yet, but I have spent about half the $$$ this morning that I would have on the new machine.
So, I guess what I have purchased this morning will be my reward for waiting for my reward of the sewing machine! LOL!
Have a good day, friends!
