I also couldn't pass up the opportunity to go to the fabric store. This was partially due to the fact that my basement neighbor was tending a friend's dog, and had to leave him alone during the day. The dog barked non-stop starting at 11 a.m. and I thought I was going to lose my mind listening to his lonely, anxious whinings. So obviously, I had to think of a reason to leave the house! I found another cute challis print, some zippers and some ribbon. Everything I bought was on sale, and then they had this very nice 20% discount today for anyone with a military ID.
Sometimes I feel a bit guilty cashing in on these discounts because my husband won't get called up to war with his job. I'm really grateful for all the people who serve our country and for those who make do while their spouses are away serving. I think that would be incredibly hard. So, thank you to those of you who sacrifice your time, and time with your family so that our country can be a safer place.
