Boys and their toys
Last night, S and I went out to look for a new sheet set, and two hours later, came home with a 42′ plasma TV! I’m still not quite sure what happened, but I know that S has wanted a plasma for years, and has not stopped talking about it since we moved into our house last May. I guess this is one of the differences between men and women, but we have a perfectly good TV and I just couldn’t justify the purchase on top of our mortgage and all of our infertility bills! S agreed, but little did I know that he’s been squirreling away money, just waiting for the chance to buy a plasma.
So we were out at the mall last night and drove by Circuit City (who just happens to be going out of business and offering all sorts of ridiculous deals), so S asked if we could go in and “just see…” Long story short, we drove away with a plasma in the car!
I’m feeling so conflicted…we have so many other things that we could use the money for, but S has been so understanding (well mostly!) with all of the money we’ve spent on treatments, acupuncture appts, organic food, herbal supplements, blah, blah…that I feel guilty for being annoyed. He works so hard, and if this is the one splurge that makes him feel happy, then I guess we’ll survive. I won’t be telling him that though…he “owes” me one! Maybe a trip to the spa 😉
