I've decided to be more responsible with my finances. It's not just one thing that's convinced me I'm overdue (pardon the pun! Sometimes I am so witty, and not even on purpose!!!) rather an accumulation of different factors that have led me to this oh so difficult realization.
1. I've gained an additional 10lbs from this round of "quitting smoking". I use the quotation fingers (all the time, really...one time Q asked why I always did that funny thing with my fingers when I talked...) because the whole "let's quit smoking and gain a whole bunch of weight instead" thing is getting really old. I think I've been smoke free for almost 4 months now. I can't really remember when I quit because it just sort of happened, I didn't make a huge ceremony of it because it gave my addiction too much power...so I think it's been about 4 months. In the two years and four times I've quit, I've gained about 40 (gasp!) pounds. Spending any amount of money on clothes when I am this size makes absolutely no sense because I do not intend to be this size for very much longer. No clothes for me until I lose 30lbs. I know. Boring. About the only thing I can buy to wear is flowers for my hair. And so, I've got lots of purdy things to wear in my hair.
