They Don't Call it a "Problem" for Nothing

I think I have a problem.  I'm not officially ready to admit it, but I can acknowledge it. They say that's the first step to recovery.  OK...Deep Breath... I think I might have a problem... shopping!!!  I'm beginning to think this because:

1. I found myself hiding shopping bags under the bed and in the trunk of my car.
2. I'm getting confused between the words "want" and "need".
3. The Mr. is finding my shopping bag stashes and is pointing out that I have a "problem".

As I was stepping out to run "errands"

The Mr.: Where are you going?

Me: Just running some errands.

The Mr.: I saw a shopping bag in your trunk from your favorite store.

Me: Whywereyouinmytrunk!!!

The Mr.: Give me your credit cards.

Me.: Igottagonow-bye!

The Mr.'s Mom giving me some shopping advice

Grandma V.: You just need to ask yourself before you buy, "Do I really "need" this?"

Me: I think the Chitlin really "needed" those pink cowboy boots.

I've come to two conclusions:

1. I either really do have a problem... or will live the rest of my life in denial.
2. I'm becoming more and more like my Mother.

  1. Hiding shopping bags and it's not for Christmas presents...might be a problem. You can just say they are Christmas presents, maybe that will help buy you time until you decide if you really want to stop your shopping habits.
