Default im in trouble with DH...

when i first went on bedrest, DH was trying to make me feel better about it by saying that at least we would be saving money because i wont be out and about and able to buy anything....

then i met Ebay...

DH was home when CP delivered...of course, DS needed winter clothes..i was able to get him 2 pairs of nice jeans, 4 polos, 2 long sleeved ringer tees, a pair of shoes, and one onsie for Lola and a sleeper as well...all of that, + shipping and it only cost me a little under $100 bucks. DH was okay with that....

until the doorbell rang again...

then my ebay stuff came in...and there are more and more to follow. DH asked me how much $ i have spent lately and i told him that i would never tell! i then said that it is totally Farrah's and Jen C and Diane's fault...they are the ones who told me about Ebay..

that didn't fly too well with him...oh well.

so, my Boppy came in (NWT purple mink/chenille) and then the GAP sleepers in various girlie and neutral colors...

and soon, my Philosphy lotion/bath wash/perfume that i absolutely LOVE will be in....

and then the CP gowns/sleepers....and then the Pink Papasan chair that Brandi and i both want...and then the boys shoes.

and then the wall letters for Lola's room....and the some other personalized items...with her name on it, etc.

IM SOOOO BORED!! i can;t help it...BUT, in my defense...all of the things i have purchase cost me much less than they would have in normal department stores...

did i mention that i am bored?

Sure blame it on us, soon he is going to take away your internet access and ban you from TBC and seeing us

Seriously though, if I was on bedrest I would be doing the same thing, cuz I seem to be at the mall daily buying something or another!

I spent 6 months on bedrest and my DH would come home and see the credit card out by my laptop and roll his eyes.

Oh boy, you are starting to sound like me. I call it retail therapy. It works well for boredom, depression, just about any emotion!
