Ok, for the second and hopefully the last time today (since my whole blog wiped out from trying to bold something)...here goes!
I was just reading Jersey Girl's post from yesterday and something struck me! I realized the probable reason for something that has been happening to me lately. She was talking about how, since she has become a mommy, she has to really rationalize when it comes to shopping. How she always has a conversation in her head, while looking and considering buying things that might be a little frivolous! I do the very same thing!
I have been very bad lately, where shopping is concerned. I don't know what has actually triggered this shopping trend, but geesh, I just can't seem to stop it! I try to tell myself, "hey self, you deserve this shirt (or whatever) because the ex took your whole wardrobe when you left". Not really a valid excuse, is it???
So, to give you somewhat of an idea of what I'm talking about, here is a list of JUST the new things (tags still on) in my suitcase right at this moment:
*Red wrap-around shirt
*White beaded seersucker shirt
*Peach Tommy shirt
*Pink v-neck with front ties
*Rose/beige floral spaghetti strap shirt
*Orangish yellow square neck shirt
*1 hot pink skirt
*2 pairs capri jeans
*2 lacy bras
*1 camisole with matching boy shorts
*1 pair white small heeled sandals with a small flower on the toe
*1 pair beige sandals with a little bow
*1 pair black flip flops
*1 silver necklace with a flower charm
*1 silver necklace with a heart
*3 bangle bracelets
I think I might need to start seeking help for this little addiction, when I return from my trip. Can anyone relate to this at all? I do think I know the reason for it though...when I was married, I had to account for EVERYTHING that I spent (I'm talking EVERY THING too). He was such a penny pincher! While that is not necessarily always a bad thing, come on now. Why should I have to explain why I'm going to get some new undies???? Those are the kind of things that are just needed every now and then. Get a life, a**hole! I think it was just a control thing. He felt the need to control everything...and that folks, is the biggest reason why he is now the EX-HUSBAND!
It's very nice to not have to worry about accounting for anything, that I don't want to, anymore. I feel like such a big girl now! LOL Just not used to this...I was married at age 19...have never been out on my own. Moved right from the parents house to the ex-husbands. (I should have gotten a clue that something was wrong, when I was crying on the honeymoon!) Live and learn.
My new found freedom feels great and I hopefully will mellow out on my shopping excursions soon! If not...there has to be help out there! LOL So, fess up fellow bloggers...what's your current vise????
Ok, this is it...I'm outta here and on the road in a few!! Told you I'd get one more post in here! LOL Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!! See ya soon!! =)
