Perk # 44: Cancer Gives Me A Great Excuse To Shop

I have finally come around enough after my last chemo  to get  back into shopping mode. I think I may have gone a little hog wild though, spending my “hundreds” like there’s no tomorrow.   It all started with a new Nikon camera, which I decided to gift to myself for Christmas.  Shawn gave me “the look” and said, “Darlin’ are you really going to pay that much for a camera?”  And my sombre response was, “Now Shawn, I could be dead this time next year, so I am not depriving myself of a good camera!”  (Not that I really think I am going to be dead this time next year, or the year after for that matter, but it didn’t leave a word in his mouth!)  Next it was off to the Bath and Body shop at the Avalon Mall.  As I loaded the packages onto Shawn’s arms he said, “What are you going to do with all of this stuff?”  And my response was, you guessed it, “I could be ……” “Stop”, he yelled, “Don’t even say it!”   Did I really need another pair of black boots?  Well, ya know, I could be dead this time next year………..

Tip:  There’s nothing like a shopping buzz to lift a weary spirit.  If you feel well enough to shop, treat yourself to something new.

  1. So funny! I use that excuse to shop all the time, and I had cancer a while ago. I say “I could be dead next year and then some one else will be spending my money!” It would rot me to think I couldn’t have that ipad2 or iphone4 but someone else would spend my money on it when I’m dead and gone! You are so positive and I admire your doing this blog so that others can get some laughter in their lives from it. You will be just fine! Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  2. Merry Greetings, Florence!

    Just stopped in to wish you and yours a Happy Christmas and Glad (AND HEALTHY) New Year! Sending you positive energy, m’dear…God bless.

    P.S. Santa brought me a Nikon last year, and I am ashamed to say I haven’t learned to use it yet!
