Globe Obsessed


Have you ever wanted something so badly
that it possessed your body & your soul
through the night & through the day?

That's how I'm feelin' about this here globe I spotted at Anthropologie today. I want it bad, and I've been thinking about it all day long. But it's 148 buckaroos and something that expensive needs approval from 'da boss, aka, mi amor.

So, at tonight's 9 o'clock showing of Diary of a Wimpy Kid (I heart Rowley), I popped the question. "Can I buy the globe I saw at Anthropologie for 148.00? It's on sale, half-off, a total bargain, and the only one of its kind!"

He took a bite of popcorn and a sip of soda and said, "N-O." Just like that, "no."

So that's why I'm blogging to you right now. I wanted to let you know that tonight I'll be dreaming about winning the Lotto. And when I win the jackpot, my first purchase will be...that globe. Pray for me.

P.S. Maybe I'll call mi madre and tell her about this globe situation.

P.P.S It's not against the law to take your kids to the movies on a school night, even when it's past their bedtime. Plus, when you take your kids to the movies at 9 o'clock on a school night you get the theater all to yourselves. Now that's what I call a memorable fhe. Or maybe that's what you call poor planning. It's a toss-up, really.

  1. That is one great globe. Maybe your Madre could lend you the money and you can pay her over time so that "mi amor" doesn't feel the gap in his finances. I mean, one of a kind!

    Even better than late night movies is going to the movie in the afternoon on a school day. Welcome back!

  2. I told mi madre about the globe and she said I need to save up the change I find in the laundry. I told her that it would take too long and the globe would be gone. I need to move on, don't I!

  3. I know, huh! I have the perfect spot for it in my kids' playroom. Too bad Anthropologie doesn't do layaway:) Anyway, I'm sure the globe is long gone by now--off to a new home. I just wish it were my home.

  4. Movies on a school night dont make you a bad mom, or planner. It makes family memories. :)
