Because I always listen to Andrew!



We went to Barnes & Noble tonight because I wanted to pick up a book that had info on hiking trails in middle Tennessee. But, of course, being who I am, I couldn't just leave with that one book! I had to buy a whole basket of books and magazines.

After having a conversation with Andrew last night, I decided I needed to pick up ReadyMade, Craft, and Make magazines. I got subscriptions to ReadyMade and Craft for Christmas, but I can't wait 6 weeks! And when Andrew told me that he was going to make books out of his blog using something he saw in Make magazine, I knew I would need to have that magazine too. So hopefully these magazines will provide me with lots of fun project to do in the next few months.

I also may or may not have gotten some things for certain people who read this blog-- I can't say. Hmmm...

After B&N we went over to Dana's house and chatted with her for a few hours and played with her new puppy. Who can resist a soft and cuddly puppy? Definitely not me.

Great now when I go to Borders tonight with my $15 in Borders Rewards I'll have an even harder time!

I had my sights set on ONE book. Now I have to check out the stuff you got!

I have to stay away from Borders or I would go broke. I go in for one thing and end up with lots of stuff. Wonder if there is a support group for that?

There should be a support group. I've added it up, and on average I spend $60 every time I go into a bookstore. But at least I'm spending money on something good like books instead of ice cream or something that only brings fleeting joy.

I didn't see ONE of the magazines you got, but I found

Room to Room: Restyle Your Decor with Paper

and I also got

The Procrastinator's Handbook

Procrastinator's Handbook? I thought you were steering clear or the self-help books. Isn't reading a book about procrastination just another method of putting off the things you want to do? ;-)

Guess what we don't have up here? That's right...Borders. But we do have a Chapters & I'll have to keep my eyes open for Make. That sounds like fun.
