I have a small addiction to spending money since I became a SAHM. I used to be frugal frugalton, but now I can barely make it through the day without seeing something I just can't live without. I had a whole therapeutic post written about this disease, but never published as it was all too comprehensive in delivering my skeletons from their respective closets and you never know when the hubs is going to fancy himself a read on this here blog.
This morning started off great. I packed some granola bites for JJ as we headed to the gym... where, I might add, I increased my run to 3.5 miles... (thought I would never get over the 3 miles mark... and please don't ask how long it took) .
Anyway, I rushed from the gym to meet the "shutter guy" for a quote on covering two windows I didn't think needed shading before. After a friendly exchange on politics (still reeling from last night's FL fiasco), he told me the deposit for the shutters would be $126 and I promptly presented him with a check.
The next time the doorbell rang was none other than a door to door salesman pedaling steaks. I was feeling in a spendy mood and quickly dropped another $150 on meat (this was actually a pretty good deal, believe me).
I then paid my bills online, and checked out woot.com. Everyone knows I need a new camera since JJ lost mine (yes, Jeremy, it WAS JJ) and they have a 8MP camera there today for 85 bucks.
I can't bring myself to call Jeremy AGAIN to approve such a purchase, so I will have to pass.
I must say, it felt pretty good to not even have to venture into the cold, yet still have spent way more than I should have in one day.
And it is only 2 PM.
