Tomorrow is my mother's birthday. I spent most of the day today with her. She wanted a necklace, so I got her one that she liked, and that I can afford. Now I feel like cheapskate 'cause I couldn't afford to get her anything nicer.
I feel like this a lot. My budgets have been tight, and I am not able to be as extravagant as I would like. I know I shouldn't feel sad, and yes, I know it is the thought that counts, but I cannot help it.
O, well, It is just a quirk in being me.
