Oh, yeah, one of my favorite kinds.
But this time, there's an odd little twist to the story. Usually I indulge in a purchase when I want a bit of a lift; I have actually been known to put off purchases as insurance against life's little disappointments. My reasoning for that is to make sure that I can splurge a little when I want to without really blowing my budget. Today, however, I just really, really wanted some turquoise, and I gave in to my impulse and bought some.
For no reason at all.
Or so I thought. Turns out that there was trauma for the turquoise to soothe; it just took awhile for me to trip over it. Good thing I bought it when I did; I'd hate to be having all this trouble without it.
