Have you ever seen the show "My Name Is Earl?" My husband and I loved it, it was silly, the acting was great, it is a shame it isn't on anymore. What is my point? Well the point of the show was "Karma." Do good things, good things come back to you, do bad things, and guess what bad things happen! Simple enough. I have been trying to practice this concept more and more lately, sometimes I succeed, sometimes fail, but heck, at least I'm trying! All of this has a point that I'm about to get to....
A little over a week ago Denyse Schmidt released a brand new line of fabric for the chain fabric store, Jo-Ann's. The internet has been a-buzz, everyone is really excited, myself included. How great, you can run into town, and pick some up! You can even use coupons! Yeah!
My first trip was a little over a week and a half ago, I had coupons in hand, and a list of other things I needed, especially some of the (also new) Lisette fabric that was 50% off! I found (and purchased) the Lisette fabric I was looking for, but they did not have the Denyse Schmidt fabric....boo! While waiting in the extremely crowded and extremely long line to get my fabric cut, there was a year old? baby in front of us with her mom. This child proceeded to scream (louder than any adult I have ever heard) and scream, and scream for about half an hour straight. My son (in his stroller) even seemed annoyed. Can I say head ache. When I got home, I complained to everyone that would listen about this annoying kid and how her mother didn't really do anything, and just stood there while this kid wailed and wailed. Now before you start judging me....wait.
After a few days went by, I couldn't stand it and decided to make another trip back to Jo-Ann's to see if they had finally put out any of the Denyse Schmidt fabric. I FOUND IT! So excited, I threw my son in the shopping cart and proceeded to load up the 11 bolts they had, to get the fabric cut. That is when it started, the screaming, the crying, the crazy bad behavior from guess who? Yep, my son! What did I do? I went and got my fabric cut, are you crazy, what did you think I did! What did my son do? He screamed the entire time! What was the reason for all this craziness? KARMA! She got me, she won! If you complain about a screaming kid, you kid will be the next to do it. I learned my lesson, the hard way.
