as the kids would say, "My bad"

Cue the band....

Call me irresponsible
Call me unreliable
Call me undependable too.

I have been pretty sensible and responsible all of my life. My sister says that I was 15 going on 50. Maybe it's because I was the oldest child in the family. Maybe it's because my father died when I was young. Probably it's because I was born that way.

But....

I sold the knitting machine set and it is now heading to Oregon. The money from it felt a bit like mad money as it hadn't been earmarked for a particular purchase or payment.

Now I am really 50. So I decided to spend the money just for my own selfish pleasure. I don't need what I bought. I just want what I bought.

Some people buy red convertibles for their mid-life crises. I just ordered this:
It's a Schacht Ladybug. I ordered it from Shuttleworks.

Hey, it may not be a convertible..... but it's red!

I'm not going to call you any of those names...every once in a while we all deserve to be selfish and treat ourselves.
Love the Ladybug! My friend has one - she treated herself too. :)

Overly responsible you...because you are the 'elder' child, because you knew intense personal loss early, and big big because of your ancestors!
Next contest suggestion: How to we suggest Susan should spent her new-found wealth?

oh I hate the saying "my bad" it's like fingernails on a chalkboard. So of course my kids say it often to torture me, lol

I'm such an idiot! Somehow, I missed this post where you announced you present to yourself. That's why I left the comment I did when you GOT your little red wheel about it not being a red sports car.

Good grief. Well, pretend I was just quoting you.

Blushing,
