Derek just asked me if I was depressed. The reason? I’ve gone on a bit of an internet shopping spree. According to Derek, people who are depressed shop a lot. Today, I purchased:

**2 new vacuum filters
**The Mark of the Lion series by Francine Rivers
**Photoshop Elements 6 for Mac

The vacuum filters are a must. I am supposed to change it every 6 months. I know for a fact that I have not changed it since before we moved to Texas two years ago. No wonder I’ve been thinking my vacuum sucks. Or, rather, doesn’t suck.

The books. I’ve been wanting to re-read them for the past month or so. Our library does carry them, but the problem is they are long books. I don’t want to read them with the pressure of a due date. Besides, they might be the best books I have ever read, so I should certainly purchase my own copies. Right?

Photoshop Elements. I was very close to being eligible for free shipping on Amazon, so I checked out my wish list to see if there was anything I should get. That’s when I saw that Elements 6 is being released on April 1. This was technically a Christmas present from Derek. The only problem was that it was only released for Windows at Christmastime. I’m excited to finally get my Christmas present!

What I find a little ironic is that I just wanted to spend $5 to earn free shipping.

(And, for the record, I am not depressed. I just love internet shopping! Which reminds me…I still need a maternity bathing suit.)

  1. About the vaccum filters…DEFINITELY worth the investment. Call me if your vacuum still needs help after replacement. I love to take apart vacuum cleaners. (I know it’s weird.) About the books, they WILL be some of the best books you’ve read and definitely worth owning. About Elements…let me know how you like it. I’m in the market. About the bathing suit…hmmm. I just refused to swim when I was pregnant because I could never find anything that worked. Sadness. Hope you have better luck. I love internet shopping.:)

  2. Just popping over to say hello…love reading your blog…and love that you aren’t depressed too! LOL…and I too love to internet shop…
    LOVE the fact that your dh recognized your patterns too…super cute! What a guy!
    I hope you are doing great…
    Loves and blessings,

  3. I’m not a big fan of spending my dollars on filters, but they must be purchased.
    Those are probably THE best books I’ve ever read too…totally worth every penny.
    Have fun playing with your Christmas present! HELLO!
    Aren’t you gonna get that cute little green number for a swimsuit? I think you should.

    Now I’m depressed. I just realized how long its been since I’ve had retail therapy. I only know one way to feel better… shopping, here I come!!!
