So T and I are going through some personal crises that is kind of hard right now, and I've been super down. So last night, when T was heading to his guitar lesson, he suggested I go to Target and buy something for myself.
So I go, "Oh, yeah, we need to get your brother and sister-in-law an anniversary card. Oh and my Grandpa's birthday, too."
"No, that's not something for yourself."
"Well we need some candles for the house?"
"That's great," T says. "But that's not something for yourself."
"I know...I can get some of our groceries we need."
"That's not something for yourself. Buy something. Like a CD or shirt or something."
So I go and walk around Target. I get my cards, candles, some shampoo on sale in bulk for T (I heart Target), some new running socks for me and tights for when I do Mary Kay meetings. Both of these are on clearance (whoo-hoo!) I walk around the clothing section, and a few things I like are like $20 which I think is too much. I settle on a cute argyle sweater for $5.00 (clearance!) And then, of course, groceries and some brownies for my employees on Valentine's Day.
We get home and are unloading our stuff. I show T what I got and he jokes with me that even when I "buy something for myself" it has to have either 1) practical purpose like socks or 2) needs to be on clearance.
But what can I say? Five bucks for a sweater is one hell of a deal!
I love Target....
