Ugh, I sure made a bad decision on Friday to go out that morning. Because of that, it led to me not being able to go to a family event the next day. I had honestly planned to go, but I thought I needed to go to K-Mart on a different day because we'd be rushing so much to get to the event and I wouldn't have time to say a proper Goodbye. I honestly believed we'd be back in an hour and I could go to sleep. Instead, the tire blew and everything got thrown off and I was far too exhausted to be able to go the next day, even after the tire problem was solved. It's very upsetting, because I could have got to the Toys R Us I wanted to visit last week. And there was a wonderful meal I could have shared in. Of course, it would have been nice to see the family too, but since I'm not extremely close to those family members, my focus is more on the shopping and the food I missed out on, as shallow as that sounds.

I'm also wondering if I should have bought a doll at K-Mart. It's too late now, but I ponder on it. I like the webseries based on the first Descendants movie, Wicked World, and I idly considered getting some of the dolls. K-Mart still had Freddie when I got the snow cone maker. I like Freddie, especially her wanting to be good after having been bad, as that will never not fascinate me about a character, but she does creep me out a little because of her dark sense of humor. If the dolls had been Mal and Evie, I probably would have got them in a heartbeat because their friendship is one of my two favorite elements. (Repenting bad guys learning how to be good is the other.) Possibly if by some amazing chance I get another opportunity to go to the capitol city K-Mart before it's gone, they might still have the Freddie doll too and I'd get another chance to decide. But who knows, I might make the same decision. At this point, I'm just not sure. I hadn't even thought of getting her on Friday because I didn't think she'd still be there, and when she was, I was tired and couldn't figure out if I wanted to get her, even for $6.60. I'm trying very hard to balance my money right now because of needing to help with the groceries. Still, I hate to pass up a clearance deal that I would have wanted.

That brings me to another thing I'm wondering about. Hasbro is currently having some amazing Pony sales, or at least they still were last night. They have Fashion Style Starlight Glimmer for $6, and the Lyra and Sweetie Drops dolls from the Everfree movie for $7.49 each. I wanted Lyra and Sweetie Drops when they came out for Rainbow Rocks, but then they disappeared instead of going on clearance, sigh. (I hadn't wanted to pay full-price.) But ... I'm not sure I like the Everfree versions as much. I think both Lyras are great, but I really prefer the Rainbow Rocks Sweetie Drops. However, since those are out of print, I probably wouldn't even be able to find them for very cheap. So I'm debating if I want them enough to order them now, even as Everfree versions. Also debating if I'd rather just get Starlight. Hasbro only does free shipping for $14.99 and up, at least on their eBay store, but the shipping for just Starlight is only $1.99, so that's still an amazing deal for a Fashion Style.

It is very difficult to debate the problem when I also have to think about the groceries. Especially this week, as Mom's been feeling sad to only get the barest minimum of stuff lately and she hardly ever gets to go out and food is probably one of the only things she gets to look forward to, so I think I need to try to make sure to get at least one special thing each week for her to enjoy. And there should definitely be something on a holiday, even if it's one we don't celebrate much anymore. I'm also hoping to get a pizza for myself (and I'd share it with Dad if he wants; Mom usually can't eat cheese). That is, a fancier pizza than we usually get. If not a Little Caesar's pizza, then at least a fancier frozen pizza than the $1 ones. I'm usually content with those, but I do often long for something that tastes more like delivery.
