I don't know why I go through these phases, but it is truly an addiction. I think about checking all my sites for good deals before they are gone every morning as I am getting out of bed. I brush off my child's attempts to read a story with me or run around the back yard because I don't want to miss a good deal. I feel devastated if the one thing that interests me is sold out. And lately I have been bad about buying stuff that I don't even really need or want once it comes. But my heart races as I check or shop. I get excited as I add something to my shopping cart. I have a moment of sensibility that starts to take over as I add my credit card number, but I quickly squash it. And then I wait, with excitement, as shipment notices come, and for the doorbell to ring each day. If I don't have anything outstanding I get, well, depressed and try to come with some excuse for something that is needed. This latest bout came because Lilah has gone through a bit of a growth spurt and is finally ready for 18 month clothing! It is summer time and time for a new wardrobe. She now has a dresser stuffed full, granted of VERY cute things.
So I am writing this blog as my public intervention notice. If you hear me excitedly talk about Kid Steals, Zulily, fun clothing sites, etc... feel free to give me a good slap. And remind me that car payments start soon!
