Must. Shop.

Being stuck at home means I spend a great amount of time online. I don't particularly like reading a lot of stuff online but that might have to do with the tremendous amount of money I spent doing my eyes and not wanting to spoil them again. So I spend lots of time looking at bags, clothes and all these things that have suddenly become forbidden fruit. Not forbidden fruit in its true sense that I'm not allowed to buy them, but that I can't buy them because my future is so uncertain. Who knows if I'm going to be able to fit into my pre-pregnancy clothes, let alone new clothes that I'm so tempted to buy now, like these skinny jeans or these shoes that cost pretty much an arm and a leg and for so many reasons, I can't try on.

I'm not sure why the bug has only bitten me now seeing that I used to shop on a regular basis and had basically declared a moratorium on shopping since I found out I was pregnant in November. I suspect it's got to do with the fact that the end is near and how at this point, the number of clothes that I can wear, I can actually count with my fingers and toes.

So, I need to shop. For the first time in a long time, I'm bemoaning the fact that I can't go to the Mango sale, even though, I've missed the last few without so much as batting an eyelid, well, actually not true. I always make a fuss but this year, I'm really feeling like I'm losing out because I can't go. I think what I'm suffering from is delayed severe withdrawl symptoms from having not bought anything baby unrelated for the last 6 months or so. Also, I think I miss regular clothes and being regular sized. I look at women and moan about how I'll never be skinny again. When your waistline is larger than your husband's, it's easy to lose perspective.
