I have a problem with my crafty attention span. I have good intentions.
I see awesome ideas and think that without a doubt that those ideas will change my life. I will see a magical craft project and daydream.
I will spend money that I should not spend at Walmart.
Then Joanne’s. Then Michael’s. And finally at Goodwill.
Returns will ensue. I will find a better deal at Joanne’s. Then Michael’s. And finally at Goodwill.
Then I start crafting. I make a mess. The kids want to help. Against my better judgement, I say, “Okay, you can paint and use the glitter.”
The first one turns out cute so I want to keep it for myself. Then I feel like I should make a dozen more.
And halfway through the second one, I stop. Kaput. Run out of gas. I lose interest.
This sad, sad vicious circle that I revisit every few years since I became a milspouse. Why don’t I ever learn?
Damn you, Pinterest. Damn. You.
