Do you use Stickies to remind yourself of important tasks? To do lists? Shopping lists? Bills to pay? Chores to attend to?
I use the app on my Mac to remind me of stuff just like that. I am guilty of making stickies for the sake of making a pretty sticky note. I mean it still reminds me to do something, but I also like the satisfaction of marking them off. I feel accomplished. A sense of pride. I think at least.
I am even guilty of making a reminder sticky after I have already completed the task...yep...just so I can pretend I had thought of it before and get the great rush of relief when I draw a dark line through the task.
It is with heavy heart and severe sadness that I share with you my next two stickies. They are on my background of my computer. They float among other windows. They are not allowed to disappear. Not at all. I am officially...
IN A SHOPPING FREEZE.
Shopping is truly my favorite pastime. It is my favorite competitive sport. Shopping holds a great big area in my heart that fills me with joy and excitement. But it has to stop. So this is my oath to you. Other than Christmas presents for OTHER people, I will not be spending a dime at the mall, Target, online (ANYWHERE)! Nothing. I must stop until Christmas.
Except in two weeks, when my Verizon contract is up and I am getting the iPhone 5!
Please keep me in your thoughts as I progress through this difficult time.
