> > I see... well, you're probably better off postponing your purchases until you've relocated and in the mean time, go to a movie theatre and treat your self to some items at the snackbar. Remember, you don't want to shop on impulse, think it though first.
> > Dee : )
> ****I figured since now I am stuck in a job and a lease for another year, I may as well make myself comfortable and buy some furniture instead of sitting on the floor for a whole other year.
> So, guess what, I jsut bought my first brand new kitchen/dining table and four matching chairs! I unscrewed all the legs to the table and stuffed everything in my car and unloaded it and bought my first screwdrvier to put on the legs again once I get home, so I can have a nice little table and have guests come over :)
> I never did this before. The tabletop is wood and the legs and chairs are white with cushions to sit on.
> I also saw a black sofa and would like to purchase it and plan to call up for some moving people to ask how much to haul and move it for me.
> Gosh, then I just need to buy a TV, I already saw a TV stand I'd like to put together with my new screwdriver, that and a new laptop computer, and I should be pretty set, even ready to ask people to come over for a visit, cause I will have someplace for them to sit and visit!
> My gosh, although interesting, this feels also foreign and strange to me, because I feel less and less independent, although I feel more comfortable, I don't feel so free and independant as much. Because now I have to depend on other people to help me move especially once I purchase this black couch. This is going to feel really strange for me for some reason.
> In a way I am uncomfortable, I don't feel I can 'escape into the night without a trace and not have to worry or look behind' anymore. I wouldn't be able to do that anymore. Again, my defense, my prime sense of self-defense, feels being eroded, and although I am gaining 'creature comfort', I am losing this defense. The old way of defending myself.
> What I have not figured out yet however, though is what new defense is going to replace it, now that the old one is eroded?
How are you doing tonight? Great to hear that you are enjoying your new table and chairs. ENJOY!
Hey Margaret, what are you running from anyway?
