Now that I have pre-spent all of my extra money for the next few months, my birthday is coming up next week and I am thinking about what I want. I probably won't get any of it because I don't have the money to buy myself presents and my family doesn't often give gifts any more but that's ok. It's fun to think about it.
I want a dwarf fruit tree. Maybe a tangerine. I want to plant it in my giant pot outside that I will put under my shower outlet. I still need to take all the dirt out of the pot, move it in to position, and put the dirt back in. I should really try to plant something that takes less tending like marigolds. Vegetables wither under my care and fruit trees might succumb to the same fate.
I want good walking shoes. I will buy these soon even though I don't have money for them. I'll have the money in July so I'll just borrow a little bit. It might actually be July before I buy them. I'm not in a shopping mood right now.
I want a new wardrobe. Or at least 5 new tops and one pair of pants. I would love to go thrift store shopping. I think I could get many new outfits for $20. That will go on my to-do list for later in the Summer when it is too hot to work outside.
So that's what I want. A tree, shoes and clothes. But what I bought last month was:
a new battery for my truck
a 3 gallon dog waterer
a no-bark bird house
Those are nice too...especially the netbook. Now I just need to be good and keep my spending in check so I can pay for them all. Then in a few months I will be able to afford the other things that I want.
