retail therapy

i was having a bad day, so i bought this dress from Nordstrom.com.

i know, i know, i have a serious problem. i’m trying, but it’s just so hard. i’m sorry. you don’t understand what it’s like  — sometimes i get this uncontrollable thirst for something (sounds rather vampiric, doesn’t it?), and i cannot get it out of my head. i’m weak. this is probably exactly what alcoholics/drug-, gambling addicts say to their families.

usually, i resist as long as i can, and i am often pretty successful. but when i’m having a really lousy day, i slip. i feel this desperate need to reward myself somehow, to remind me that there are things in life that make me happy. and pretty dresses make me really, really happy. please don’t judge me. i need therapy — and i don’t mean the retail kind.

edit: something just occurred to me. if i didn’t love shopping so much, this blog wouldn’t exist. so mwahaha, i win again.

    You are not alone, sister!

    I get like that too. The other week, I made Jase take me back to Natick to buy this dress I wanted. I nagged him (off and on) for about 3 hours (we were watching a movie and I would slip it in there every 45 minutes), until he finally relented…

    It doesn’t happen very often, but when I want something, I usually HAVE to go back and get it.
