Pretty Paper

Each time I've been out for the past few weeks, I've noticed the shelves are once again stocked with school supplies. I cannot resist the temptation to browse the isles. Why? I'm not going to school. My 22 year old doesn't need my help with supplies anymore.  And yet, I have to look (and of course, bring home a few items!) Part of me wants to find a great bargain and part of me has another agenda.  I can always use pens, notepads, etc.   But the real secret I've been hiding, is that I have a bit of an obsession with pretty paper.  I've always had it.  When I see all the newest things, my heart starts to race, my eyes glaze over and in my mind, I hear, "The paper! The paper!" (voice of Gollum from Lord of the Rings, saying "the precious!") So now everyone knows. If you want to buy me a gift, I'm pretty easy. Just run to the office supply/scrapbook/gift shop and pick up pretty paper. I will be your friend forever!
