I have always subscribed to the philosophy that "when the going gets tough... the tough go shopping," lol. A new lipstick or book has often lifted my spirits after a crappy day at work.
And what could be tougher for a bereaved childless mother to face than Mother's Day (aka Voldemort Day -- That Which Shall Not Be Named) weekend??
Fortunately, some shiny new bling arrived in my mailbox this afternoon to distract me. :)
I have wanted one of these for eons, and I decided recently that I'd waited long enough. I ordered it a few weeks ago from a local Etsy dealer (here's the website, in case you're interested), and happily, it arrived just in time for the weekend.
I don't know whether the post-purchase high will last me through Sunday night... but it won't hurt, lol.
(I guess I could have saved this post for #MicroblogMondays... but I couldn't wait to share it with people who would appreciate it!! lol)
