ummm, may be dead by friday...

*& thats if I stall!!...
Ok, sit right back & let me share with you just how & why I am in this perdiciment... It is NOT however my fault, I'll just go on and get that right out of the way!!.
Soooo, I have this children's boutique saved in my ebay fav's ( yep, you know right where I'm headed) today I get this email reminding me of how fabulous & thrifty their adorable "Couture" clothing line is. "Ok ", I say to myelf, "I'm just going to take a look & see what they have that's new", then I hear myself say, right out LOUD " & lil P is 8 years old, & pretty soon I won't be able to dress her in these pretty frilly clothes any more" ... Oh- No- I- shouldn't- Have, that my dear friends, was my downfall... Before I knew it somthing came over me & I'm knuckle deep in "Buy it Now's", & "Is that your final bid"?... Enter, Enter , Enter~ then I remember that my other daughter dropped her blackberry yesterday. "Well", (I say to myself) "We certainly don't want to have to replace her $100,000 dollar phone DO WE? & besides, that's not really fair for P to get somthing & not her". So, off I go on another search... WHAMO~ I'm now the proud winner of the cutest lil Leopard Bling case!!At that point I've got to go & get my a big ole Un~Sweet Tea (because by this time I am just plain parched & wore nearly plum out!) & think, "You know, if I can get free shipping & find me a case from that same seller"... Well, you guessed it!!. A proud owner of a super cute blingged- out Palm Pre Case to boot!! Seriously cute, you should see it!! Then............... it hits me & I can see Big Daddy's face.. DBLE GULP.... Here I sit, finger sore & sweat beading on my foreghead, the excitment fading &, I get the "Summary Purchasing Email" on my Palm... Now, Im in strategy mode... Well, it's just got to be this diet. Doesn't he know that I havn't had sugar in 2 WEEKS??? I bet he couldn't nearly starve & get an email like that just taunting him & not atleast go & see what all the fuss was about, after all I'm weak!! Well, if he thinks he's going to act like that & get away with it, he's got another think comming (meanwhile, he doesn't even have a clue about any of this~ Hey, don't you dare judge me, didn't you just read that I havn't had a lick of sugar in over 2 WEEKS & frankly if you arnt going to help me, then until you are ready to appoligize, I frankly have nothing else to say.......................... Oh yeah except, I'm open for any & most all suggestions... ;) I better get going before He comes home. Heyyyyy, maybe if I get back on & get him somthing too. What was the name of that cell case place... Or, he does have a golf bag that I'm just certain would love to have another.................................................................................................

Toooooo funny!

I love ebay, but I know what you mean when you hit the button and then think right away, "what did I just do?" I justify it by thinking that I have missed many good buys by hesitating. "He who hesitates is lost!"

carissa @ lowercase letters said...

Gurl.Gurl.Gurl.
Maybe you need to look into a 12 step program. LOL
I just love you.

Hattie said...

Baaahahaha! Girl you sound just like me. I always get sucked into buying stuff on ebay. It's fun to win bidding wars and the excitement of packages arriving in the mail!!!

Oh my goodness! You are too funny! I get caught up in the ebay thing once in awhile too and then I find I just have to go on an ebay fast for awhile. :)

Robyn said...

Yeah I know what you mean I have a great "I might be Dead" story to but will share it with you another time.
Good luck to both of us!

Together We Save said...

Oh my... to funny... I do love frilly dresses though.

alicia said...

Ha! I love this! The worst thing my husband says I can do is feel guilty over spending the money and then thinking "I'll get him something and that will make it better!" His response is always " you spent too much money and now you spent more?!"

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I've had very little ebay experience. Somehow, my account was shut down years ago because they were worried about some security breach. ... Weird.

Maybe it was God's way of keeping me "at bay" from ebay. :-)

mb said...

BAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! Yup, blame the sugar...I wanna hear you tell that to Rick with a straight face, mean while his goatee is fallin' right out!! :)

Traci said...

It's the reverse Twinkie defense! No woman should be forced to go without sugar for two weeks and then make rational decisions. It's just not right!

So it's Friday. I hope that you are still amongst us!!!

Have a great weekend.
