I know I've mentioned this before...
But Confessions of a Shopaholic comes out THIS FRIDAY! I am SO EXCITED! I hardly have time to go to the movies anymore, but I think I am going to make a huge effort to go this week. I really want to go this Friday. (Although I hate going out on weeknights, because that means hardly any time with the kids after a full day of work in the office...) Anyway - yes, it's a fluffy girly movie about a fluffy girly book, but this book is totally me. I mean I'm a HUGE SHOPAHOLIC. I spend way too much money. It's actually not something to be proud of, it's just a part of who I am. I love designer purses. I love the designer purses I own. I love the thrill of shopping and new purchases and having to go home and organize my closet and just the excitement of a new bag, really. I am happy that recently Ottawa is getting better stores to shop at. But I still love shopping the most when I'm out of the country. I know, this sounds horrible... but I can find a lot more when I'm in like, D.C. or in Miami, you know!
My love for shopping for myself has recently died down - I now love to shop for my boys. (Can you imagine if I had girls? I'd be in serious trouble!) They have more clothes then they should... I donate a lot to Children's Aid and I have sold stuff to Boomerang Kids, too. I just can't help it... I love to shop for them! Clothes, books - oh, the books - and toys. It's my passion. Too bad I can't get paid for shopping, eh?
I realize this post makes me sound pretty horrible. I am not a horrible person. And I'm not really materialistic. It's just, I love to shop. Maybe I should see a therapist.
