162: my treat

I've been sick for about a month now with a cold that transformed itself from some common cold to a painful sinus cold, to a sinus infection & now I'm wheezing with asthma! I'd been reluctant to go to the doctor because I've been worried about the cost of medications to cure my horrible ailments :( After getting checked out, I was prescribed to antibiotics & two puffers. I was super upset at myself for letting myself get so sick & then having to spend $130 to feel better.



Whenever I'm paying for something that's over $100, for some reason I start to think about how many pairs of shoes I could have bought with that much needed money. I think about how if I had not needed to waste that money, how fabulous my new shoes would have been... but my question is, why in the hell would I consider shoes to be a "treat" or a way of "spoiling myself" moreso than medication?

Am I really so vain as to hold my vanity over my health? I've been trying SO hard to think that my $130 wasn't just wasted but it's so hard! what the hell self-employment... why don't you come with a drug plan?!?

BOOHOO. Anyways, my sinuses are clearing up, I can smell again (although I can't hear out of one ear) & I hope to do a tutorial post soon. OOOOH! AHHHHH! :)

  3. I hope you're feeling better! Oh gosh, I know what it's like to not have a health plan now. OF COURSE I would get sick as soon as my coverage expired and I just had a visit to the doctor too and had to shell out serious monies for meds.

    Hopefully things start looking up for you as soon as the meds kick in and you can continue to splurge on those JC pretties!

  4. It's okay, hon. I do the same thing. My teeth have needed to be fixed for a long time but I keep thinking - Damn I could go thrifting with that money.

  7. I do this ALL THE TIME!
    I'm actually aiming to finally go to an optometrist this summer for the first time since 2006, not because I really need to (the dentist might be a little more pressing...), but because I really want new glasses :S

    Hopefully you'll be feeling better soon, though!

  8. I noticed that several of the pairs of shoes you wear that I like are Jeffrey Campbell, so, I looked up where to buy his shoes. Turns out they sell them at a chain in Chicago called Akira that always has great shoes. Anyways, when I went to their web-site I noticed two things: 1) They have a lot of things that remind me of something you two would wear (and a couple brands I've heard you mention), and 2) They are having a sale. If you have never heard of the store, you should check them out (shopakira.com).


    This pair is on sale for $70 off right now and reminds me of a love child of two different pairs of shoes I've seen you post:
