Spending the Weekend

I went out this weekend to buy some stuff for my place — an air-cleaning filter, a box of tissues, that kind of stuff — but something weird happened: I found myself buying more than I planned. By Sunday evening I had also purchased three sweaters, a book, a reed diffuser, a CD, and some other stuff. I was seeing things and just buying them, on impulse. It was like I was my own personal economic stimulus package. Now, don't get the wrong idea. It's not like I was buying everything in sight. Far from it. But a bunch of stores had their Christmas decorations and items out (including Harry Connick Jr.'s new holiday album, which was totally worth paying full retail at Target), and I just got in the buying spirit. Sometimes it feels good to treat yourself to some new stuff, and this was one of those weekends where that was the case for me.
