Out of Purdah

My self-imposed jewelry-fast ends this weekend. I have already splurged out at HSN and ordered a bracelet that I really love and which has the added attraction of having gone on sale at 40% off since I added it to my "wish list" three months ago. But then, I've been having trouble getting HSN and my bank to see eye-to-eye in regard to my card number, they keep turning down payment for no apparent reason. I'll have to look into that.

I want to go on this great jewel-garnering binge, but I know I can't afford to spend money on jewelry... I have to spend it on my teeth and my car. But I figure I deserve this bracelet as a reward for being good for three months. And at least now I feel like I can look at jewelry again, though I must remain prudent about buying any. It's quite a relief, I have to tell you.

So in other news... there is no other news. I've been having a very boring day. And now I'm going to go home and have a very boring weekend. I have to clean up my drag-room in the basement, and then clean out the garage, all in preparation for having some men come out and bolt our house to the foundations (something we'd intended to do shortly after the '89 Loma Prieta quake, but which we never got around to dealing with). I shall also be doing a bit of laundry.

I hope I don't die from the excitement. Or maybe I hope I do. I don't know.
