Oh, sure I have done it! In the last few Christmas after my husband left me for another woman, I will give myself a "gift of self-love". I wanted to stay positive and to remind me that just because of what happened, I was worth it!
BTY...I can relate to taking chances and praying for miracles with these gas rates...and been broke all the time! I even considering playing Lottery!!!!
A few times. I used to work sales long time ago. And now I pick things up from Freecycle and people are supposed to leave things on their porch but sometimes forget or sometimes I write down the wrong address!
(sorry about your ex leaving you, I think that's gotta be the worst)
