Unexplained purchases may come back to haunt you

Unexplained purchases may come back to haunt you

 

What do you do when your husband leaves at 4:30 am to hunt? My first thought is it’s too early to get up because it’s still dark outside. That leaves me one of three choices.

 

  1. Close my eyes and sleep for a few more hours.
  2. Bake those three loaves of banana bread I need for tomorrow.
  3. Research YouTube videos about the Cricut Explore Air 2.

You guessed it! The best answer to that question is #1. But after tossing and turning for thirty minutes, fretting over whether I had made a good decision about my recent purchase, I relented and chose #3. That banana bread can wait. Sleep will come when I least expect it.

I bought this nifty little machine yesterday, and frankly, it scares the heck out of me. I’m using that word, nifty, very loosely because I have yet to connect the power cord and turn on the switch to see what this baby can do.

So pretty and shiny!

What was I thinking? Like I really need another project to undertake. There was a great sale! What’s a girl to do? I figured I could cut out appliqués for some of the pillows I design for my etsy shop. After watching a few videos I realized there is just so much more I can do with this new piece of equipment. The endless possibilities are overwhelming. Where do I start?

I can see it sitting there in all its glory, right where I left it last night, surrounded by all the extra supplies and shiny new goodies that came in the bundle. All those items I have absolutely no idea how to use. I hear it beckoning to me in a ghostly voice. 👻“Come to me…Plug me in…Switch me on…Start your first project.“👻

I told H if I bought this item he would probably have to listen to a few choice words as I mastered the learning curve. Right now I’m dumbstruck and mute, no coherent thoughts in my head.

I tell myself to stop making excuses. Stop procrastinating. The sun is peeking through the slats of the blind.

Time to make that banana bread. Look who’s waiting now!
