Confessions of a shopaholic

Hello. My name is Trish and I'm a Southern Living at Home addict.

I didn't realize until I started setting up for the party last night just HOW MUCH of this stuff I actually own. Yet, I still have so much MORE that I want! It's why I had the party. I'm getting most of my wish list. I can get four half price items (getting the entertaining stand along with the entertaining bucket, and the Bountiful plate and bowl - althogh I considered just the plate and the candelier). I'm also getting all of the guest specials (double plate rack, candle/vase collection and the wine stopper with stand) and for my hostess special the silverware caddy.

SOMEONE STOP ME! What am I going to do with all of this? Ok, the wine stopper will get good usage, as will the big entertaining bucket (gotta keep the wine and beers cold somehow) *laugh* The rest of the stuff I just love, but I don't know what I'm going to do with it!

It was great to see suewin again, and I look forward to it yet again once her products come in. The party was small, but I like them that way. You can talk and enjoy yourself more.

Tonight, the boys and I are taking off again to spend the night over at Ang's. We're going to test out some of the Southern Living stuff on their walls and figure out her order. That should take five minutes. The rest is volleyball, swimming, drinking, eating, laughing, talking, making fools of ourselves, and letting the kids run wild.

Time to relax and destress.

Old Age Wisdom
You ask "What am I going to do with all of this?" and the answer is either:

1- sell it on eBay; or
2- have a garage sale

Either way achieves the same end. You will get rid of all your Current Crap to make way for New Crap. Trust me .. been there, done that. There's a certain liberation you *may* discover in your old age, where you find a joy in NOT collecting crap. I think I reached that plateau - more or less - a few years ago. And then I wander across a New Pile and realize that I must deal with it IMMEDIATELY - either recycle it or use it, but never, ever Stash It For A Rainy Day. Odds are that day will never arrive.
