New House Wish List
Here I sit just weeks from move in and I am all in dreamy mode. I keep trying to get some stuff accomplished around here but I seem to be spinning in circles. I did manage to do quite a bit of organizing this week but I wouldn't call it a particularly productive week.
Perhaps that's because I've been running around doing my share of shopping. There are several things we want and need for the new house and while I have picked up some little things here and there, I find it hard to pull the trigger on the big things, like counter depth refrigerators and flat screen TV's.
I'm having a hard time parting with any of the money left in savings after we closed on the house. I think I just need to wait until we get in there to figure out what really is at the top of the priority list. Except for this mailbox. That is definitely at the top of the list.
So, while all of these things are beautiful and certainly worthy of a little daydream, I am going to wait a bit before I start bringing them home. I really feel pulled to simplify things in our new home and somehow draining my savings account to buy lots more stuff doesn't really feel like the right thing to do. I think I will have a big garage sale and use the proceeds to fund some well thought out purchases. That feels right.
