I found a loophole in the rules of my Shopping Embargo. I am allowed to purchase embargoed goods as presents for others, provided they are legitimate presents, right? But at no point did I say that I was not allowed to purchase any presents for myself on someone’s behalf. This is a loophole that will be closed immediately starting right this moment, because I already went back to Target and purchased a sleek new red Nintendo DS Lite for myself, on behalf of my husband, as an early 2nd anniversary present.
Oh, and I bought one for him, too.
And a carrying case with all the necessary travel gear.
And two games.
So that’s it! I am done! No more shopping for myself! This means no gifts, no treats, no nothing!!!
And really, for this transgression, I really ought to push my end date forward a bit to the end of August. But I’ll see how I feel at the end of this month. If I promise to be really really really good, I think I might let myself off easy.
But only this once.
