Kids Book Tuesday!
So….ya’ll know how I borrow books from the library to save money, right? Well Pete the Cat cost me big time. I didn’t have to pay a late fee but I did have to pay for the book because this cute little puppy right here tore this book into shreds.
What should have been a free book rental ended up costing the price of a brand new book because the library just bought it! Seriously.
I go to the library every week with my kids (unless they are sick) and they had just gotten a huge stock of new books and being the greedy person I am, I loaded up on new books.
As if that is not bad enough, the other books are late. Like way late too because last week my kids were sick. And then, there was Labor Day weekend and the excuses can just keep coming but not only did I have to pay for Pete the Cat (already paid for it) but I will now have to go back with a stack of books a week over due!
I’m so aggravated with myself too! It would be one thing to pay for books if you were buying books, but no, I am paying for a bunch of books because I have been too lazy to get up to the library to return them.
At first, the excuse of sick children made sense and was a good excuse but now, it’s really embarrassment keeping me from going up there because these are not random people to me. These people know me and they know that my dog ate Pete the Cat (that’s ironic) so I’m sure you can understand how paying for a huge stack of brand new overdue books is going to look. Horrible. I am supposed to be a frugal momma not a “I spend because I can momma.”
I will now bow my head in shame.
