What goes around comes around

Recently my sister blogged about how her 1 year old daughter had chewed up a library book and then took a bath with another one, for more click here.
I laughed so hard when she was telling me the story but somehow as I sit here looking at yet another set of books that are late to be returned and the fees stacking up I'm not thinking it's so funny. My highest fee yet has been $15 but then the next time I paid $12 and now this time it's $12 again. I think I might be better off to go buy books instead of checking them out for "free." Every time we leave the library my oldest son says, "I can't believe we can just take these books for free, completely free can you even believe that?" In my head I think really free? I'm pretty sure I need to add a category for library fines to my budget or maybe I should call it a membership fee that sounds a little better. You think my husband would go for a $30 membership fee to the library each month?
So there you go Abb now you can laugh your head off at me and my library fiasco.

We actually had to just pay a $30 library fee. Yea, I know how you feel. THey aren't so free when you pay $5-$30 for late fees :)
