Retail Therapy

Retail Therapy

Is so not living small, but sometimes, a girl just gets sucked into the bedding aisle at Target. And when you can give your entire bedroom a makeover for under, well, for more money than one might have wanted to spend, but less money than one would have spent on similar stuff at a less-discounty kind of store, then, as our friend Martha might say, that’s a good thing. And I guess living a tiny bit large isn’t going to kill me (despite post-spending terror that my job will get outsourced to India). So now I have a very fluffy, very girly bedroom, with flowers, and curtains, and bedside tables … of course, it’s darkest mud season, and a couple of canines we know like to lounge on my bed, but luckily everything’s machine washable. And flowery! I have a flowery, girly bedroom ….

  1. Heh…OK, so I know this medium isn’t necessarily the sharpest means of focusing on the nuances of personality of a far-away writer, but I did *not* picture you (until now) as a “flowery/girly bedroom” kind of person! Which is not to say it doesn’t seem like a good thing, just that I hadn’t deduced that particular facet of you before. I’m a firm believer in the restorative power of small indulgences. Can vividly imagine the satisfying lift it will give you to walk into that room and immerse yourself in the floriferous beauty of it all. And, what a perfect foil for bouquets from your summer garden! Happy for you 🙂

  2. I love to buy new bedding! It’s an indulgence that happens so rarely — maybe once a decade, if that — that it feels acceptably indulgent.

    Congrats for you! (And I, like Carroll, find myself pleasantly surprised at your flowery/girliness of your indulgence!)
