Hi, I’m Geochick.

Welcome to my blog. What started out as a private blog to document our adoption journey has evolved into my journey through therapy and spiritual awakening. Without our struggles to build a family, I’m not sure I’d be waking up, and for that I’m grateful.

0.5 #NaBloPoMo Day 11 - Spend Spend Spend

Uh, Happy Belated Thanksgiving! Yeah, I missed yesterday because of the holiday and completely spaced blogging.

I used to eschew the shopping the day after Thanksgiving as being a big pain in the butt and I refused to go out. Well, things have changed, at least this year because there's this house to put big ticket items in. Mostly "want" rather than need, but we are using some $$ from the sale of our old house to indulge ourselves a bit. 

What did that mean?  That meant that I actually contemplated going to a store last night, something I swore I'd never do. I didn't, but it was pretty amazing how easily it crossed my mind as a "good idea". Instead, I stayed up until way too late shopping online. Not for gifts necessarily, well, gifts for the house I guess, as well as some basic items I've been holding off on because of the sales. 

This morning? I was at the consignment store at 7:30am shopping there for some items to donate to a school that needs uniforms and gifts for my kids. After I got home I spent a good 2 hours agonizing over whether to buy the new iPad Pro or if I could live with the plain old iPad. The Pro eventually won, but not after scouring sites for reviews, putting in the store cart, taking it out, putting the iPad in, then changing my mind again. 

I'm kind of exhausted from all this online shopping nonsense....and I'm not looking forward to that bill at the end of the month. (the miles will be amazing however!)
