Halloween gift to myself

I have been wanting to get this necklace from Tarina Tarantiano from months now. Because of the price of the necklace, I kept on adding it to the shopping cart, but never checked out. Last week, I saw that it went on sale, so I finally decided to splurge and buy it for myself. I have a few weaknesses. Unlike the typical woman, I spend very little money on makeup and clothes for myself. I also don't ask for diamonds. But, I love Louis Vuitton purses (got one earlier this year, so I already met DH's yearly quota). My other love is Tarina Tarantiano jewelery. They are a bit pricey for stuff that's not made of real diamonds or gemstones, but I really love how unique her jewelery pieces are. About 7 years ago, I brought a couple of Hello Kitty necklaces and a pair of earrings from the designer, and I thought they were extremely well made. II mean, it's been 7 years, right?! Anyhow, I wanted to add more to my collection, so I ordered it!

I have been really, really sick the past 4 days. DH drove me to the emergency room on Friday night and I spent the night there. Poor DH and DD stayed up all night waiting for me in the waiting room. Early Saturday morning, I was released from the hospital. I slept probably 80% of the weekend away. I could not move because I was in a lot of pain, so DH took care of me and DD the whole weekend. He actually ended up taking Monday off so that he can drive DD to school, pick her up, and also take me to the hospital for a follow up doctor's appointment. While I was so sick, I came to a few conclusions.

1. When we are old, I hope to be healthier than DH. Don't get me wrong, he did a great job taking care of me & DD. I just think I am better at it than he is. That's why I am the mom, right?!

2. DD really is an awesome kid! She was being unbelievably good the entire time I was in bed with pain. DH had to go back to work today, and I still haven't fully recovered, so poor DD has been stuck at home all day. She spent the better part of morning playing with her doll house all by herself. And how she is watching tv in her room while I lay in bed trying to get better.

3. I actally like being the person taking care of my family. While I try to recover, I actually miss doing things for them-- this really surprised me!

4. I need to be nicer to myself. As much as I love spending money on DD, I need to spend a little time and money on myself too.

I hope to never get this sick again & I can't wait to be all better so I can take DD places! My Tarina Tarantiano skull necklace came last night. I can't wait to wear it out!
