Sticking To It

Remember when I made this commitment? I wasn't sure how I would fare on that one, since I'm a known bookworm. I hadn't put myself to the test, until tonight. CJ & I went to the mall with a friend and I had to go to a certain bookstore (my favorite) to ask about a return I need to make.

Believe it or not, I got out of there with only a book for CJ. (I wanted to reward her for being such a trooper this week with R gone.) My friend scoffed at my commitment. She doesn't think I can make it for a whole year, but I'm standing firm. Amazingly, I wasn't even tempted to look.

Nope...the temptation was much greater here, and I still didn't cave in. But then I threw caution to the wind! (It was a good thing CJ was there to yank me out before it got ugly.) I know R is so happy that this particular mall is an hour away!

Good for you! That would have been tough for me!

Books, Vera and William are just a few of my favorite things!

I am so glad we don't have a WS store anywhere close to us. It would be ugly.
