The weekend of self-control.

When my boyfriend usually is in one of his moods where he doesn’t care about saving and is willing to let me spend money to my lil’ hearts content I spend it. I know better then to ask twice. This weekend was all about my self-control though since my boyfriend was in one of those moods. I have never felt such pressure and anxiety before. The three stores I have credit cards for and have almost paid off were having killer sales. Not to mention the fact that I also had a letter from Gottschalk worth another 15% off.

My boyfriend and I decide to meet up at Chili’s for dinner and use the gift card. I got to leave work a bit early so I got there about 20 minutes before he was supposed to arrive. I waited 10 and then decided to take a booth since they offered and hell why not right? Well my boyfriend ended up having to work a bit late so there I sat waiting for him for almost an hour before he arrived. We had the BEST server, Kristen. After making sure I was settled, got me something to drink and my chips and salsa she pretty much let me be. I mean she was ninja quiet. There was more then one time where my drink would be half full and when I looked to my side there would be a fresh cold one waiting for me. It was nice to have great service. XD

My boyfriend and I rarely order appetizers. It’s usually not really worth it considering the meal usually fills us up. This time he asked me to order some though and within minutes of hanging up with him she was over to see if I was ready. I asked her about how long the appetizer would take and she said about 10 minutes since I ordered the trio which has chicken. It was perfect since he was about 10 minutes away.

By the time I left, my boyfriend left first to check out the silverware at Gottschalk, we had used a four seating booth for 2 hours. I am normally a big tipper if the service is great. I’m such a picky person about my waitress/waiter that if they can meet up to my standards or even get close they deserve a lot. My boyfriend still believes that 15% is the standards. <_< Needless to say he’s never had to serve anyone before. He looked at the tab and said, “Not bad we should only have to pay about 20, but I’m going so you decide how much.” Which basically means, “I’m leaving, please don’t give her a 50% tip.” I didn’t, but I did give about 1/3. We took up a large booth for 2 hours and gave great service. She deserved every penny.

Gottschalk’s was horrible. I hate picking out silverware since what I want is always expensive. My boyfriend and I are not “hosting” people. We do not throw parties, invite people over, etc. We live in our own little world where people rarely come into. It’s not a life for many, but we like it. :) A battle within me raged since I knew I could have easily convinced my boyfriend to buy the expensive silverware. Do we spend 100-170 bucks for silverware that’s just for us when I really want a computer? It took a while, but in the end we picked out some of their inexpensive silverware. I’m not too fond of the feel, but I like how large the large spoons are. They are deeper then most which is what I always look for.

We head down to the beauty area to find me a mirror. I need a small one for my cubical badly. So many times something has been in my teeth and no one has said a bloody word to me. <_< It’s smaller and not what I wanted, but it will serve it’s purpose so “eh”. When we were standing in line there is looks at me with those puppy dog eyes which I knew meant he wanted honor and to go home. I told him to leave and to turn on the heater so I could exercise when I get home. When I was done I turned around and what did I see? Naturalizers...on sale...oooohhhhh I wanted these clogs they had so badly. They were on sale for 40 bucks too and I could put them on my card. I call up my boyfriend who gives a little sigh and asks if I really want them. Want, hell yeah! Need...not really. I have shoes, I could live without, but they were soooo cute and on sale and did I mention they were cute? I set the shoes down though since he was right I may want them, but I want a new computer 100 times more. I would be spending 100 bucks on two pairs of shoes when that could go for my computer. With a sigh I head home and grab a Café Mocha at some java place that did not taste as good as Starbucks and was more expensive! >:(

The next day was no better for me. It turned out that we didn’t buy enough silverware so I had to go back, but since I was already there I figured I’d stop into New York and Company and Victoria’s Secret and make a credit card payment. I left VS without doing it since it was a mad house and I could just mail it in. I did make my NY & Co. one though, but it was like hell. They were having sales galore on everything I liked; slacks, blouses, their jeans I like, etc. There I stand a few feet away from some amazing prices clothes calling for me to “just try them on”. Whispers of “Your card is almost paid off.” and “It doesn’t hurt to just window shop.” filled my head as I eyed the clothes around me. A few times I almost wavered and edged towards the clothes, but I quickly came back to my senses and stayed in line.

I am so glad the experience is all over and done with. I shouldn’t need to go to the mall for a long while now either. Normally I have no self-control what so ever so I’m very proud of myself for not window shopping, which always leads to actually buying at least one item, and for sticking to my plan which is to not spend until I get my computer. I haven’t even ordered Tramps like us (Japanese title: Kimi wa Petto - No I have no idea why in America they are considered tramps. <_<) volume 8 even though I REALLLLLLLY want it. I mean volume 7 left me at such a horrible cliff hanging spot and I just gotta know what’s going to happen next, but damn I just really want a new computer! Anyone willing to give me 2 grand so I can buy the computer now and order KWP vol 8 at the same time? XD

Big Tips
I'm very proud of you, hope you feel good about yourself. Maybe next time you can dazzle us with a story about watching a fern grow.

I dislike window shopping too because it means that I will see things I like and yet not be able to buy them. Good luck in saving enough to buy yourself a computer.

Oooh, so proud. ^-^ Eh, me, too...no real self-control. But I'm working on it, I am! I rarely order appetizers, either. Last time I went out with my cousin's and they ordered lots o' those. Needless to say, I was full before the main dishes came...XD
