I don’t know if I have made this clear at any point, but I am a dog person. The kind of dog person who cries at the cuteness of a dog. Cries knowing there are dogs who need homes and don’t have families. The kind of dog person who honestly has thought about how to adopt all the dogs.

If I had to take a guess, I have a thought that contains “I want”, or “I really wish I had” AT LEAST 10 times a day. I am constantly seeing things I didn’t know about, that I immediately decide I need. Usually it’s something small, like clothes, shoes, some kind of electronic item, etc. These things are easy to move past. My options are, buy it, or realize I don’t REALLY need it and move on!
