the New Year’s resolution I knew I’d never keep

At the end of every year, my husband and I have an “Annual Relationship Meeting” to review the past year, plan for the new one, go over goals, budgets, calendar, etc 

… don’t laugh at me, I know it sounds very ‘business-y’ but behind my messy-hair-&-box-wine exterior lies a person who is a wee bit perfectionistic. (Is that a word? I’m rolling with it.) 

It was all going great…

… THEN we got to the budget 😳😳😳

I don’t want to tell you how much $$$ I spent on books last year. 

I also really didn’t want to tell my husband. 

But he found out. ‘Cause “budget” was on the agenda. 

I knew I shouldn’t have put that on there. 

Anyway, I swore to be more reasonable this year with my book-buying-habits, and to kick it all off, I told him I’d do my own version of Dry January…


Until my friend and I met at a coffee shop next to a used book store. 


So that New Year’s resolution has already gone down the drain. 😜

But I ask you… if the book is used, does it count? I technically didn’t **buy** a new book. 

Also, I paid in cash so there’s no record. 

Being more thoughtful was also one of my New Year’s resolutions 😁

Hugs and please go by all the books for me!

Side Note: Let me know if you have any book-related New Year’s resolutions! I’m keeping notes for next year 😃
