Oops, I did it again!

Three Arches

Five new puzzles are on their way to my house, including the image above. I don’t need them, but I want them – and I don’t feel bad about it at all. 😁

I got an unexpected check recently, and after a disappointing trip to Tuesday Morning that netted me zero puzzles I had this extra money burning a hole in my pocket. What to do?

At first I planned on doing nothing; I have plenty of puzzles both here and at mom’s house and I don’t actually NEED more. Later on in the evening though, I was in bed and just looking around at puzzles online and ended up on the Wentworth site. They’re having a summer sale – many discontinued puzzles are 25% off – and I also have a code for 10% off any regularly priced puzzles. How unfair to tempt me like that!

I spent a bit of time thinking about it; I don’t really need them – just because they’re on sale doesn’t mean I have to buy them. After a while though, I remembered a few things. 1) Puzzles make me happy and help me feel better, 2) I can afford it right now, and 3) Life is short, if getting some new puzzles makes you happy why wouldn’t you? I shouldn’t feel bad for doing something that’s just for me, it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks or says.

Before I knew it five puzzles had jumped into my cart. I didn’t want them to feel unloved, so I adopted all five of them. I’m a giver – these lonely puzzles need a place to go, and selflessly I will be sharing my home with them. Ain’t I a sweetie?? 😉

    Bravo! Enjoy the puzzles.

    If you’re at all like me, just picking up a fresh puzzle with an attractive image is enough to put you in a better mood. It’s fun to anticipate future pleasure…way to go.


    1. Thanks Sam, I will definitely enjoy them. I was pretty pleased that I gave myself permission, and once I clicked that purchase button I was proud of me!

      Sometimes I talk myself out of buying new puzzles because I don’t need them. Then I wonder why I would do that. If they bring me joy, where is the harm in allowing myself the happiness of new puzzles that I get to assemble?
