BOTD 15 and ugh

Hi y’all.

Do you just have one of those days?  When nothing seems to be going the right way…and you just want to move to Australia?
I’m having one of those days.

I woke up early because we only have a few days left in Newport and I want to get TONS done.  I stepped into the bathroom only to see…Mr. Roboto had used MY TOWEL. He knows it’s my towel. I hate when he uses my towel.  He never hangs it up properly and it lies limp over the shower curtain.. HE NEVER PUTS THE TOWELS ON THE TOWEL RACK….and he doesn’t fold towels…so it’s all…sad and limp and not okay.  I hate when he uses my towel…I have two towels he has about 10 to choose from…why he chose my towel…I have no idea!  I was livid.  It’s my towel.

I’m an only child…

Then…I head out..still kinda angry about the towel but…whatevs I’m going to Michaels.  I’ve got a 25% of EVERYTHING coupon…I’m golden Pony Boy.

Cut to Michaels-nothing.  I found nothing.  What kind of parallel universe am I in that I find NOTHING at Michaels?! I left still mad about the towel but more upset about finding nothing at Michaels.

I decide to head to TJ Maxx.  I’ve never been to a TJ Maxx and I keep seeing all these ridiculously cute photos on Instagram that basically say, “Hey, I’m TJ come visit me.  I’ve got stuff you can buy.”

So I go. And what did I find?

This…this beautiful piece of art…this chair that BECKONS for me to purchase it and add it to our new home. It loves me.  I love it.


I begged Mr. Roboto…please let me have this I know it’s expensive and we are moving..but I NEED IT!

As I was pleading…I get a phone call with an estimate from my movers…They want $500. Which isn’t bad and I am so grateful that we have the money to afford movers but…this chair…it belongs with me..
and there is no way I can drop $500 for movers and $300 for a chair in the same week and still feel ok inside.  So.. Mr. Roboto and I agreed.  At the end of July, if this chair is still at there..I can buy it.

I want it now! I want the golden egg!

If you live in Newport…please don’t buy this chair…it already has a forever home.

Well, to add to me not getting my towel, not finding anything at Michaels and not getting my chair of a lifetime…I’m late to post today’s bargain of the day.

Hope you have a great day! Don’t let anyone steal your towel!

    There must be a "new" chair waiting for you after the move. It's KARMA! Something better is coming along! Maybe decorating new place? LOVE decorating! Chin up! Maybe tomorrow the towel will be clean, fluffy, and waiting for ONLY you! ๐Ÿ™‚ wendy 1stgradefireworks[at] 1stgradefireworks

    Ok, we must be long lost twins or something, because my hubby and I have the EXACT same towel dilemma sometimes! I have 3 towels, he has about 10 haha, and yes I'm very particular about mine! Not an only child, just have a touch of OCD. ๐Ÿ™‚ He's usually good about washing his own so he always has one…and if he asks me first I will let him use one without complaint, unless it's my last one…but sometimes he just uses it and I don't find out about it until I go to shower and my towel is already wet. And we live in Kansas City where it is so humid that it takes a towel all day to dry if not longer! Gah!!!!
