I've been pretty good since the SA results to not indulge my craving for a tiny bit of "shopping therapy." But, I can slowly feel the craving getting the best of me. For the most part, it's nothing too crazy. I'd like a new outfit for a meeting in two weeks, a pair of brown sandals to replace the ones that just broke...nothing too expensive. Well, except for this one thing...
My Pearl has been crap for quite awhile, but ever since we started trying, I could put off the desire for a new phone by reminding myself that we needed to save the money for baby. Of course, now I should be reminding myself that we need to save the money for whatever IF treatments are coming our way. And, I will, and we've already been working those things out a bit...but, I just want this one indulgence along the way.
Sort of like a consolation prize for the moment...no baby? IF? Ok, here's your Palm Pre. Lame? Selfish? YES! :-(
I'm quick to remind myself that I also take part in less selfish distractions...prepping Gracie for her therapy dog exam, volunteering at Ronald McDonald House, etc. But, everytime my Pearl does something stupid, it gets harder to silence that shopping therapy craving. I guess it would be worse if my phone wasn't already breaking one piece at a time. I really should ease up on myself a bit! Then again, it's not like spending money on the phone is really going to make me feel any better about all of this. Another good distraction, though, I suppose.
Anyone have a Palm Pre? (BTW, I'm sticking with Sprint, so the iPhone is not an option).
