Coveting During Convalescence

When you’ve been banished to lounging in bed all day, you have a laptop, and you’ve nearly escaped a death sentence, getting bit by the shopping bug happens!

Admittedly this whole chances of cancer coming back in my life are 50/50 thing has me mildly freaked out. Granted it may not be until I’m 64 or something, but I had a nagging dread since this whole thing started that I’d have to deal with it again at some point in my life — it isn’t done with me yet. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad my oncologist was frank enough to tell me not everything is all unicorns and lollipops, but because of this diagnosis, I’m becoming a little more bratty about things I want. After all, my new motto is, “because you never know, you could get leg cancer!” Some people turn all spiritual rather than go for the material, but come on, this is me we’re talking about! Have I mentioned how excited I am about my new fabulous cane that should be arriving shortly? It is the best present from everyone, ever.

After I’m better and mobile I’m probably going to move to bigger diggs, although in the same neighborhood because I love my area. Having all this time on my hands to browse interior design blogs has me itching to redecorate, get a new wardrobe, apartment hunt, and so forth. So hey, here’s a list of fun crap that I am coveting.

A black chandelier

New curtain rods, because my cats keep climbing my damn curtains despite how heavy they are getting.







A fancy French writing desk for le office.

A Dodge Challenger. Not that anything is wrong w/ the Toyota, I’m just planning ahead.

The entire Burberry fall 2010 collection, especially the green dresses and bomber jackets.

Zebra rug, because it would look great in my living room.

Some real jewels. Nothing outlandish, but this video about the Duchess of Windsor jewelry auction makes me marvel.
