In 2017 my husband and I turned a corner in our emotional maturity. Granted, we have always been “old souls” intellectually. But like everyone else, we have our share of emotional baggage that has, on occasion, driven our consumption decisions. This particular corner came down to not equating stuff with a life of richness.
If I’m being honest, I dread summers just a little bit.
I am in charge of keeping five human beings engaged and active. Otherwise, they’ll melt down on each other and me. The yelling, crying, fighting, and complaining is what causes most (Ok, ALL) moms to jump for joy on the first day of school.
Add that I work from home and that my productivity tanks during the summer, and it’s easy to see why moms clamor for camps and outsourced activities to keep sane.
If you have ever had an over-spending-hangover, then you’re going to LOVE this post.
