(yes, I said allowed. He works hard for our money and I ask him before I buy things. I respect him and he cherishes me.)
...allowed me to buy a layer cake of Simplicity by 3 Sisters for a friend of mine.
The plan is to make a layer cake quilt together and I wanted to treat her with a layer cake of fabric to use. She was admiring my Simplicity lap quilt and telling me how much she loved the fabric. I did extensive internet searching and was thrilled to find a layer cake of Simplicity for her.
I love this line, too, which is why I used it to make a quilt for our bedroom.
So, when I told him I also found a fat quarter set of it on Ebay for sale, he said, "Buy it!" I told him it was very expensive. And this is only one reason why I am the most blessed woman on earth...
He said, "I love you and I want you to have it."
All together now...
And I did...Buy it, I mean. I checked out paying with Paypal. Now, I knew I didn't have enough in my checking, but I also knew I had a back up source, which was the credit card. It was all good...except for one teeny-tiny problem. When I was checking out, I forgot to tick the little box at Paypal that says "pay with alternative funding," or something like that...
Can you guess what happened?
Of course you can.
And I was charged $25 in overdraft fees. My expensive fabric just got even more expensive.
All because I was careless...Dare I say, stupid?
And my darling husband said??
"It's okay, honey. Things like that happen."
My husband is the most forgiving and patient man I have ever known....My boys would do well to grow up to be like their father.
