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.
