Our carpet was finally installed this morning! It's amazing how much difference this makes in the look and feel of the room.
Honestly, I'm kind of 'twirly' about it.
Now, we need to re-furnish the rooms, but I want to Scarlett O'Hara that one. It's too much to take in all at once.
The real problem is that I can be incredibly cheap.
My cheapness plays out in avoiding, ignoring and denying the need until something absolutely must be replaced (especially clothing, but almost anything).
This drives B-man nuts, and he shakes his head in disbelief when I shop for an entire day, bring home nothing (because I 'cheap out') then spend the evening telling him about what I should have bought.
He says, 'Why didn't you buy it and try it on at home?' 'You can always take it back if you don't want it.'
Like that ever crossed my mind.
On the other hand, I think nothing of dropping $150 on a perfume that I Absolutely Must Have. This doesn't phase me at all.
Because perfume is a staple.
Which brings me to my next point: I placed another order.
In my defense, after receiving multiple offers of 10% off Already Discounted Prices, I received a coupon for 15% off from Parfum 1.
Wear me down...jeez.
So I ordered the following:
Ombre Rose (Jean Charles Brosseau)
Le Parfum (Sonia Rykiel)
And yes, I'm already tracking the shipping. Delivery is scheduled for the 13th. Six days of anticipation, reading reviews and envisioning the rapture upon receiving the package.
I guess you could call it 'virtual twirling'.
Picture my own.
