It’s been a long time. I’ve missed you. You’ve missed me. It’s been difficult but I don’t trust myself around you. I needed to stay away for a while. It’s complicated.
Today, I’m back. My palms are a bit sweaty as I approach you. The anticipation, the longing – I didn’t realize how much I yearned for you.
When I was a stay at home mom, shopping filled my days and my worst offense was Target. I always found something I “needed” for the house or for the kids. Even if I went for one or two items, I always left having spent hundreds of dollars on questionable items. So I gave you up cold turkey. It wasn’t easy. Don’t get me wrong, I feel my true calling is being a personal shopper. I love shopping. I will shop for anyone, for anything and at any time. But with working, writing and keeping a hundred balls in the air, I simply don’t have the time anymore.
I cherished our little reunion and left having fulfilled your desire of having me spend a boatload more cash than I intended. Thanks for the thrill.
