Happy Late Saturday Afternoon to All! How are you guys doing today?
As of this past Friday, I was going to take a day off, to hang out with one of my dearest friends, “JT”, but before that, I had wanted to take care of a few errands, and I was on a mission to find new bed sheets in a specific buttercup yellow. I didn’t think this was going to take up most of my morning, and part of the afternoon, but I did finally come across exactly what I wanted. Why, this color? Because this Winter has done a number to my mood, and I wanted a cheerful color to enhance all the teal and aqua throughout my room. So, “Cha-Ching $$” minus my 20% & $5.00 off coupons for that purchase. Then I finally left Bed Bath & Beyond store, Finally! BUT…
Another item I was looking for, they didn’t have in stock. So with this, I ordered it through the store happily, a new shower curtain, hand towels, lotion dispenser, and soap dish with my favorite little critters on it, “Dragonflies.” I was so utterly pleased because they accepted all of my 20% & $5.00 off coupons towards the online purchase. It’s also a good thing I’m no longer with my ex-fiance’, or I would have had to say the usual, “Look, I saved money.” LOL! 😀 😁 (I had a stack of coupons saved for over 6 months from weekly fliers in the mail).
All in all, I thought it was a productive day of cheering myself up a bit, by treating myself to something I knew I would love and cheer me up during this dreadful Winter season. That was until I picked up my buddy, and we went back to my place.
God love him, he thought of me the minute he came across a certain artist that made this 30 x 40 painting with gold inlay of this dragonfly you see above. First words out of my mouth after stating “Oh My Gawd!!!! I love it!!!!” then followed with… “How much does this guy want it for?” 💲 – – Keep in mind, I was making out with all these great deals throughout the day. No sooner than I asked that question, I sure found out real quick how much the painting was, $400.00 in a nutshell.
🤑 😲 ☹️ 🙁 😖 😞 This is how quickly my mood changed. So, not only am I going to be saving for a trip to visit my mother again (hopefully by May/June), the artist is willing to accept payment of the following love of my life original come late Summer.
I have looked for a piece to hang over my bed since the day I moved in with my roommate, and of course, I never imagined I would spend this much, but the way I see it, (Here comes my logic) this is not only art but an investment. I’ve already decided to “Possibly” return the bathroom items, in order for me to put that fund aside. I just so want this piece! 💟
So, my question to you is this… Do you think this is compulsive on my part? Do I need to discuss this with my therapist? If something will make me happy, isn’t that what it’s all about? Especially, after the bipolar episode, I just endured. Seriously, what do you think?
I do hope all of you are having a less expensive weekend than I. LOL! Hope to hear from you soon. Have a great day!
Take care & God Bless,
