I always thought I was normal. Easy going, laid back....but I'm seeing myself lately as obsessive. What's wrong with me? I check the hourly weather forecast numerous times a day. Is that necessary? I hit refresh on my email homepage more times than I'd like to admit. And facebook....forget about it. I'm not even going to go there. Not helping matters is the fact that I keep my laptop in my kitchen. Every time I walk by, I'm sucked in. DH has thought about limiting the amount of time I have access to the internet, but isn't that treating me like a child? Like how I limit the amount of time DS plays his video games. I'm an adult. I should be able to get a handle on this.
I realize the season isn't helping the shopping problem. So, hopefully, it will come to an end shortly. But I did stumble upon a blog that tracks sales (wantnot.net). It is updated a number of times a day....so I check even more frequently. I'd hate to miss a great deal! (In my defense, I have managed to score the Leap Frog learning globe for $49, a Melissa & Doug easel for $29, and I am diligently tracking price adjustments at Target...so far they've refunded me $36.) Perhaps my obsessions aren't really hurting anyone, but actually helping!!
