for me?

Posted by the prisoner's wife On 1:37 PM

i finally did it.

i finally shelled out the $150 for a new ipod. i've been putting it off for over a year now, since my last one mysteriously came up broken. you see, although i freely spend (way too much) money on my son, my husband, and on random trips to Target, when it comes time to buy something for myself, i freeze. i quickly begin thinking of all the upcoming bills, and how we will be traveling soon, and how high gas is...and i end up not buying anything. i rarely buy myself new pairs of shoes, i don't buy a lot of clothes, and this ipod...i've been eying it for some time now. but last night, on a trip to *ehem* Target, i bit the bullet and bought one.

and guess what?
i'm SO glad i did!

i'm still a little shaky on the fact that i spent $150 on it, especially considering we'll be making another trip to see beloved soon, but i'm glad i got it. music motivates me so much, and now i have no excuse to skip a workout or neglect writing or whatever...because my muse is back.

what's on your ipod or in your stereo these days? (i need suggestions. i have a lot of space to fill!)

    So happy you splurged a bit on you! This week I loaded my pod with some old mint condition, that was fun. On repeat- I have common (faithful live), Isley bros and Mos Def (beauty in the dark) Jazzy Jeff and Raheem Devaughn (My souls not 4 sale) Jilly from Philly and Common (8 minutes to sunrise) Dwele (find a way) and a french pod cast for my kids to learn french. I'm sure you will have no problem filling that i pod up and don't forget to take it with you when you travel:+)

    Girl, I'm so happy for you. I know your syndrome well, you've got a bad case of everybody but me. I suffer from this disease myself. Remember, this not a vanity purchase, it's about your mental health.

    I recently splurged on the ipod touch once i received the proceeds from some extra work I took on. I would have never made the purchase otherwise.

    Today, I added a my son's Beatle's collection to my ipod and I have a nice collection of podcasts I subscribe to. Last week I added Amy Winehouse's first CD, Frank and Lizz Wright's newest CD, Orchard.

    sometimes we moms have to do something for self. I have been listening to" we have to keep the devil way down in the hole". I am still mourning The Wire series ending. So I have been listening to that over and over.
    Enjoy your new toy
