I’m sure I’m not alone when I say this, I have regrets. Some big, some small. Things maybe I didn’t do but should have or could have what ever, regrets. Well, I wanted to share some of the things in the past couple of months that I regret. First, not going to Luckett’s sale back in May. Why didn’t I go after telling my husband I really wanted to go…it’s only 2 hours away…I mapped it out on the GPS. He agreed to take me and the day before I said never mind. I caved. He worked the day before and I knew he really didn’t want to go and he didn’t want me to drive the kids by myself, plus if I did I just know there would be something I would want and with four kids in the car who would be able to fit it. That in its self would lead to more regret.
Then there was Haven. I am so mad at myself that I did not have the courage to go by myself. I am going next year! I am.
Okay, now this past Thursday came my latest regret. I’ll cut to the chase. Goodwill store. Little, cute, petite china cabinet. It was a bit rough but it had the prettiest lines and I knew I could do something with it. I didn’t think I could fit it in my car. I left. Driving home… thinking about it. Telling my husband about it that night ( he said I should have gotten). Up all night, thinking about it. Bright idea, I’ll go back to get it. I had to work the next day. I’ll go after work…still thinking about it. I’m finished work. I call to see if it’s still there. Gone.
The only redeeming thing about my Goodwill loss…my fun finds were FREE.
