mood: laid back
craving: horse back riding
Do you ever find yourself just jumping in your car and by the time you know it, you're shopping your little heart away. Yeah, I find myself doing the same exact thing. Living here in the Middle East, it's just what this sedentary life pushes us ladies to do. Do I like it? Yep, ONLY sometimes when I meet one of my partners in crime there at the shops (you know who you are.)
But, it gets boring. Especially when we have everything we need; note I said, "need" not want. I have a lot of stuff I just want. Days later I usually end up regretting it. It was a very fast decision and I didn't think about it. Then I end up with a fish tank built in my wall (which I love) and wouldn't trade for the world. Then I have two more big fish tanks: one that I had to have because it was round and another fish tank in my room so I can look at the fish at night and relax. Ugh, what did I get myself into?
Big mistake. I wanna give it away. That's what happens when you WANT stuff. The weekly up keep is horrid. It takes my Friday evenings away from spending quality time with my little family. Yes, hubby helps and my daughter helps, but I would rather be sitting with them instead of cleaning fish tanks. Don't even ask me about my perfumes or my make-up.
Example of my fast decisions: I wanted a Tiffany's key. We went to Dubai and looked at all the Tiffany's stores and every store we looked at, they were all out of stock. I got to thinking,"Hey, that means there's a lot of those hanging from other womens necks. After I thought of that, I didn't want it anymore. Even if it's super duper nice. I simply didn't want it. It made me start to think, I would rather have This or this. It would mean a whole heck of a lot more to me, than a Tiffany's key...
For the past couple of days, I've been wanting to go to Ikea. I want stuff like they sell at hobby lobby in the states, and they don't have stuff like that here. Unless I go to True Value, but their prices are ridiculous. So, that leaves me to go to Ikea when I really don't want to. I don't think I'm a shopaholic, I just think I make my buying decisions too darn fast. I'm trying to control that.
I think I'll just enjoy my window shopping for a while. In between all the looking around, I'll have to rest, and that can be done with one of my best friends and a nice white hot chocolate at our favorite place.
final whisper: Does that white hot chocolate sound like a plan?
