So...no idea if I'll follow through with this or not...I was thinking about seeing how long I could go without buying clothes, yarn or books. I'm going to give it a try.

Today I watched The Last Days of Disco, directed by Walt Stillman. I think Chloe Sevigny is always good (although she definitely has an edge) and the director had a good feel for the ups/downs of female friendships, and their competitiveness, particularly in the early 20s. I also liked Metropolitan from the same director. So I added Barcelona (his third film) to my Netflix queue.

The baby question? I am kind of leaning toward yes. But I'm giving myself a number of months to think about it.

Well you could always go to the library for books, but there is no clothes or yarn library! Good luck.

True ;) I did go on a yarn spree last weekend, which kind of triggered this whole thought process. We'll see how it goes...

Yay, more babies (maybe) :) You guys make very cute babies!

Before I moved here I used to try to go on "no-buys" but I always failed. Now I almost feel like I can't find anything I want to buy and things are so expensive here so I'm on a different type of restriction. I "window" shop online knowing it would be a pain to try and buy something (I can always have it shipped to my mom and have her send it). I haven't bought a clothes in three months and that's a first for me. I'm insanely addicted to buying items for my kitchen now so maybe I should try to stop there.
Good luck!

Thanks! I think the books will be the hardest, but I'm trying to make friends with the library :)

He's ready for another. I have just been dragging my feet a bit because it changes the woman's life more, imo...but i do love babies.
