Woulda, Shoulda, Couldn’t

Went over to visit the Mother Hen Diaries’ blog and came across this cute poem which I couldn’t resist sharing. Why? Because boy can I relate!

Mother Hen Diaries

shutterstock_250120381Wanting and doing are two different things,

And cash in the bank is what thriftiness brings!

But rainy day savings can hardly compare

With a new pair of shoes I am longing to wear

Today, not tomorrow!

Must I beg, steal or borrow?

I look, I lust, I rationalize hard,

Then open my purse and pull out my card.

I know it’s wrong, I know that I shouldn’t –

I tried to resist them, yet truly, I couldn’t!
