Yesterday I went to my local Kohl’s to pick up some necessary items for my family. Socks for my son, tights for my daughter, and underwear for myself. I was right on track, right on budget with no diversions, and heading to the check-out. Then I saw it…
Yankee Candle Spiced Pumpkin.
The perfect Fall Fragrance for your home!! I smelled it, added it to my cart…Continued to the front check-out, and 3 steps later I stopped dead in my tracks. I realized I was now over my budget and I had an impulse buy in my cart. Now any sane person would have put the candle back without thinking about it twice, because one stinking 22oz candle is as much as 3 pairs of underwear. Well, I am not normal….
This conversation in my head…
Sensible Maridith (SM)- Put the candle up, I do not need this
Impulse Maridith (IM)- But it smells so good and think how good it make the house smell
SM- Put up the candle!
IM- How about if I put up the underwear?
SM- It has been forever since I have bought underwear like embarrassingly too long
IM- How about if I put up 1 pair of the underwear and buy the smaller version candle?
SM- CRAP, now what do I do…that makes sense…
This was seriously the conversations I had in my head...
Underwear or Candle?
Is this really the path my life has taken??…Yes, and I love it and the choices I have to make… I chose the underwear.
Maybe this weekend I will make a Pumpkin Pie to fill my home with that wonderful aroma!
