I did get to the beach today. It was so nice there. The water was warm, there weren't as many people as on 4th of July--I think they were afraid of rain-- and it was nice. I got a sunburn, but only because I forgot to put sunblock on my chest. I stitched a little bit on my cat. It was such a wierd feeling to not change the color. So wierd I didn't keep working on it very long. But Ill have it done.
Mom asked me why I didn't buy more at the needlework store yesterday. I think that is the first time in years I haven't found at least one chart. For one thing I was short on money. Part of the problem of getting out of debt is that I am sending my creditors the money I usually spend on stash. I know it's a good thing, because I want to get out of debt so I can start purchasing some real assets, but it makes it hard to go shopping. But it's OK. I am looking long-term, if I am "celibate" now when it comes to buying stash, it'll be OK. I also felt kinda uncomfortable looking at new stuff when I have all these beautiful charts at home that I am not stitching. Especially when I've got about a month of stitching on my current WIP to do. I don't intend to start anything else til that is done.
