If you are on a budget like I am, you cannot afford wild spending sprees. You can’t even afford tiny spending sprees. Heck, you can’t even think about spending without danger of going into the red.
But a gal’s gotta relax, too, you know?
Yesterday when I got home from school I was tense. It had been a rough week with the necessity of giving a state-mandated test. This freaks out the kids and stresses the teachers and proctors. Even the kids who didn’t have to take the test had to pass silently in the hallways and have quiet lunches. But we got through it and Friday after the storms passed by, by the time I got home it was cool and refreshed. I went out into the yard, not minding my sneakers getting wet, and spent some time in the fresh air and the cool grass. I picked a bunch of flowers and loved every minute of it.
All it takes to relax on a budget is a bit of creativity and prayerful contentment. For example-
I love flowers. If I was rich, I’d have fresh flowers delivered every five days, and a butler to arrange them. Absent that, what I do is this, go into the yard and pick some. Also, go into the field and pick some.
Have a relaxing weekend, everyone 🙂
