Post that used to be part of Good Afternoon

Why is it when I would like to buy something for me I always think twice and never buy it, but when I am buying for others I am all gung-ho?

For example….. As I have written about before, I joined the Thread CAL at Crochetville. I have completed one thread project and wanted to buy colored thread to work on more projects. Each time I went to the store, I would look at the colors but never buy any. I decided to make my mom some pretty flower bookmarks for her birthday that I found on Heather’s site. I WOULD HAVE A LINK TO HEATHERS SITE RIGHT HERE BUT FOR THE PAST HOUR BLOGGER WOULD DELETE ANYTHING AFTER THE LINK! To do this I would need colored thread. So last night I went to JoAnn’s to check out the colors. I could not decide on what colors to get (the pink was too pink) when I walked down an aisle (just cause) and found the prettiest light pink DMC thread (it was cheaper too). When I checked out, I was expecting to pay $2.50 per roll and ended up only paying $1.49 for the DMC (I got pink and white). I had to force myself not to go back and get the pretty light blue. I am hoping the price will be the same next time I head out there (30 min drive). I started making my first flower last night and finished it. Now I just need to block it and start on the second one. Once I am finished I can use the colored thread for me – without a guilty conscience.

BLOGGER HAS TICKED ME OFF. I AM SUCH AN IDIOT TO SPEND MY ENTIRE LUNCH HOUR TRYING TO POST ONE STUPID POST. IS ANYONE ELSE HAVING A PROBLEM WITH BLOGGER ACCEPTING WHAT YOU TYPE?
