Don't spend it all in one place, people

And I bet you were wondering how I can tie this in to cross stitch. OHHHH, but I can. I will try to stay away from the obvious How does one become eligible for a tax rebate if one doesn't pay taxes? because it just confuses me, and I will not shake my fist in impudent rage at my accountant for telling me that it was not a good idea for me to have a baby just as a tax write-off last year (just joking, there). I will just sit here quietly and figure out how to frivolously spend the money.

I think I could spend some of it getting New Birth of Spring framed. I am thinking a simple whitewashed frame, nothing too fancy. I might even be able to afford mats and glass. I didn't frame anything with mats last year and most of it was without glass.

But I think I would also want to get my Stoney Creek renewed for 3 years. That's just a little more than $50. And I liked doing it that way before because I just didn't think about it for 3 years. Trust me, these were three years I didn't need to worry about renewing subscriptions.

And I might, I just might, get that Stoney Creek Christmas class kit. It's $118. That would be such a huge treat for myself. I guess the question is, though, would I want to stitch it? I think I would, I mean, I have been drooling over it for a year, watching for it to be available. And it is lots prettier than that nutcracker I took the class for. I really don't like that.

But I also think I need to give Mom some for paying for Robbie's plane ticket, and Robbie needs a new collar. A pretty one. From the pet boutique. Which, by the way, I want to start myself one. I think owning a pet boutique would be fun.

There are a lot of things in this world that I don't understand.

Do you have a link to that SC kit?

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
