This is going to be more of a rambling post so feel free to skip, but I was thinking the other day of what life would be like if I suddenly went blind. My first thought was I would be sad to not see my baby’s face as she grew older. My second thought was I’d probably continue this blog, lol but probably with no photos and via dictation. I also thought I would probably not buy any new clothing because I wouldn’t be able to picture in my head how the outfit would look. I would continue to wear the same stuff because I’ll at least know which combos look good. I’d also probably sell off all my jewelry because if I can’t look at it, what’s the point. Oh, and I would like to be able to swim as a form of exercise. Then I felt immensely grateful for my vision. How much easier is life when you can see! Do you sometimes have these kinds of thoughts or is it just me?
I’m also thinking of doing another No Buy July (like I did last year). I don’t really believe in shopping bans, since my failed attempt at a shopping ban in 2017 (after which all my old shopping habits resumed to a degree). But a shopping detox- a type of cleanse if you will- is probably refreshing. Plus I like that it rhymes so I’m going to try make it a yearly thing haha.
On a more serious note, last week was my husband’s first father’s day and my first father’s day without my dad. It was bittersweet to say the least. I really wish my dad could have met Emi, especially since he really wanted a grandchild. But I guess that’s how life goes sometimes.
