Well, I still haven’t bought myself the cupcake-replacement flowers. I believe that it is just not the season for any flowers I truly love, and that it is too bloody hot to even consider buying a plant for outdoors.
Also, frankly, I’m cheap. I just don’t like to spend money.
I was always able to spend money on food, but I’m trying to break the habit of using food as a reward, treat, or consolation prize.
Since flowers are out, I asked a friend to go shoe shopping tonight. She got a pair, but I simply could not find any that were special enough, or comfortable enough, or I’d-wear-those-daily-enough.
Oddly, the one place I’ve not been having trouble spending money is charity thrift stores. For a couple of months, I was on a regular circuit of hitting two particularly good ones three and four times a week. I only buy decorative things, however, not used shoes.
I don’t want to replace one bad habit—eating to push the emotions way down deep—with another bad one (i.e. compulsive shopping), but I did wake up in the middle of the night & hit the internet. I finally ordered a pair of the Spanish shoes I’ve been coveting. It is my congrats, you’re about the cross the 200-pound mark celebration.
