It's been 4 post since my last confession.
I've been a bad girl this week. I went out to lunch not once but twice this week with some of my coworkers. $40 down the drain. At least I paid cash for these lunches.
I also charged 2 things on my credit card. I haven't charged anything in months.
My mothers birthday is on Sunday and I needed to get her a gift ($50 gift card to Barnes & Noble). Due to my bad planning I did not have cash on hand to handle the transaction, and I didn't want to give her an IOU until next Friday. After all, she let me move in with her in what was supposed to be her quiet retirement.
For myself I bought some clothing from my store ($70). I bought a sweater (marked down), a sleeveless turtleneck (also marked down), a blouse, and a sleeveless shirt. Did I need more clothes? Not really. But I did it anyway.
So, now I have $120 charged on a credit card. But I wrote my budget for February and will have the new charges paid for by the end of the month.
What is the penitence for this sin? 10 Hail Marys?
