Here are some random things I’ve been reminded of this week:
That I have a nice bottle of Chanel No. 5 perfume that I should really wear more often.
Why did that pop into my head? Well, I’ll tell you…
I was in the kitchen, lingering over a photo of Patrick Dempsey, who was hocking his new fragrance on the front of the Avon catalog.
And my 5-year-old came in and asked me what I was doing. And since I couldn’t say, “Drooling,” I told him I was considering buying the cologne in the ad, which led us to a conversation about perfumes and colognes, which led me to pull out the bottle of Chanel to show him what it was, which reminded me that I should really wear it more often.
And also reminded me to rip off the cover of the Avon catalog before throwing it into the recycling bin.
Yesterday, I put on my Itsy Bitsy necklace from The Noisy Plume, which reminded me that I still really want a set of her Tiny Shiny earrings, too.
So I need to mention that to Santa.
Because cute, little earrings are not always on Santa’s radar, you know.
And thinking about Etsy.com (again!) made me remember that I am still TOTALLY PINING for the Belle & Boo “Lola Freedom” print.
And all of those things reminded me that my checkbook is very modest and since I do plan on sending my kids to college someday, I should probably just sit down with a bowl of ramen noodles and try to forget about all of those things.
Except Patrick Dempsey, obviously.
