Being a mom is the greatest accomplishment of my life. And I am SO proud of it. But somewhere along the way, I seem to have forgotten who I am and what my interests are. I am MORE THAN A MOM. I love being a mom, and a wife, but I need to have some room to just be ME - without any titles. I look forward to when I can go back to being an elementary school teacher, when my youngest starts full time school. I think in order for me to be the best MOM and the best WIFE I can be, I have to just be the best ME - whoever that is.
So, the Wishful Wednesday topic over at The Seattle Smithsis 'I wish I could afford this ______ handbag without putting a dent in my pocketbook!'
Well, before this past Christmas, I would have stated that I'd love a Coach or Louis Vuitton purse. My wonderful sister gave me this Louis Vuitton wallet in 2007 for being in her wedding. Isn't she the best!! I will probably use this wallet FOREVER! I always thought it'd be nice to have a purse to go along with it. I mean, who doesn't want a matching purse and wallet, right? So, I guess it'd be nice to have a Louis Vuitton bag - one day. I mean, if we ever win the lottery. :)
Well this past Christmas, my husband completely surprised me with this Coach purse! I almost fell over dead. He had always thought and voiced that my obsession with designer bags was pretty silly. He could not fathom spending that much money on a purse. I mean, after all, I have dozens of regular purses in the closet. Why can't I use one of those? He'd NEVER buy a purse like that for me. So when I opened my fabulous present on Christmas morning, my heart skipped a beat a two. I love it! So, in answer to this week's topic, I'm good. Unless, of course, we win the lottery. Then Louis Vuitton, here I come!
And for my other wishes for this week: It'd be wonderful if the weather would figure itself out. This hot-cold stuff is driving me crazy! I wish it'd just be nice out already. I'm so ready to go outside and play with my kids on a regular basis.
And I wish it wasn't so difficult for me to find 4 semester hours to complete before May in order for me to keep my teaching licence from expiring. I guess in all honesty, it wouldn't be so hard if I hadn't procrastinated such a long time. It's stressing me out, and I just wish I was done with it already.
