Although this week has been a busy one, it still has gone by super slow. I have realized that although I am not spending my money on cigarettes, I am still spending. A lot. But at least I'll be alive to enjoy what I've been buying. It's not all for me, I'm not a selfish spender. I have gotten myself a lot of stuff. But today I bought this for Grace while we were at the Disney store. That's who she wants to be for Halloween. I have never spent more than $20 on the kids Halloween costumes; today I have tripled that amount, and I didn't even buy the shoes and crown.
I could look into this and dig deep into my mind about why I am spending so much. Maybe I feel bad b/c I have had a "short" temper with G&D lately. Maybe I do have extra cash since I'm not spending $40 a week on smokes. Or maybe I am a bit bored. I mean 20 cigs a day, although quite enjoyable, isn't always easy. It's a time consuming task and now that I have this extra time, I shop. We can't go to the park and pool every day.
So now I get rid of my nicotine addiction and take on a new one in shopping. The hubs won't be upset with my new spending problem though as I spent over $100 at Victoria Secrets today. I'm no dummy.
