Dreaming of Things

I'm broke. Really broke. I've paid off a huge chunk of debt, but the result is that I have no spendable dollars, and I'm going to have a pretty hefty bill to the IRS thanks to my filing situation (married-filing-separately). Which makes me super broke. Even still, a girl can dream of things that aren't completely out of line with wanting. A bike? Shoes? Things that would do me a little bit loads of good.

This beautiful Schwinn Point Beach Cruiser Bike in Red/Cream ... le sigh ... I can picture myself riding to a farmer's market or the gym or anywhere, really. Price Tag: $130-200

I want very much to up my shoe game. I've been working out about 3-4 days a week (that's a half-hour on elliptical + a half-hour doing weights), and I'm using walking shoes that I purchased more than four years ago while living in Chicago. (I remember the trip well -- I had to take a few buses and a train to a Kohl's.) As such, I've realized I should probably buy some shoes that are more attuned to the type of workout I'm doing these days and, you know, shoes that aren't specifically "walking" shoes.

So I'm thinking about something like the Vibram FiveFingers JAYA. If, you know, I can ever afford them. Price Tag: $85.00

I finally bought a washing cup on Thursday. I mean, it was a $3.99 gold plastic washing cup, and I really don't want it to be my main cup, but it gets the job done, I guess. I want to start working on adding more mitzvoth to my calendar. Thus, I've found this beautiful Brown Polyresin Washing Cup that, yes, it might not be expensive, but, well, groceries or a washing cup, you tell me. Price Tag: $34
There's also a lot of other Judaica that I need, but, well, can't afford -- like a challah board! Also, it's killing me that I don't have any Judaica to wear. I have some, but, well, it's attached to previous relationships and I can't get around that. So, I'm looking at this Letters of Creation Necklace. Price Tag: $82.00

Oh and there is so much more. But, well, dreaming can only go so far. What are you dreaming about?
