Spending....FREEZE!

Tedd and I have embarked upon an indefinite spending freeze. We can pay the bills. Buy food (but nothing too fancy or fun). And solve health or home problems as they arrive. We cannot, say, go to a restaurant or take the baby to the play place or buy ourselves a present. We have, however, had great fun talking about what we'll buy when the spending freeze is over. At least once per day, one of us will say to the other "When the spending freeze is over, I'm going to buy X!" Funnily enough, less than an hour later, we've usually forgotten what it is we wanted so badly to purchase.

This has led me to a bit of self discovery. The two things I apparently really truly do want enough to remember I want them are:

1) A piano

-and-

2) An Eames rocker
