seriously, june bug, where did you go? i even disappeared from this here lil blog for the last week! oh, nose! how will my sister know what i've been wearing to work?!?
anywho, i started a new job (eep!) which is a gigantic change that i have been quietly plotting/scheming/negotiating for months. seriously, mooooonths! this also meant that i quit my old job and that turned out to be a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad two weeks. but, it's over and maybe someday i'll give you all the reasons why you should never work for meanies. (spoiler alert: the number one reason is that they're mean.)
what's happening is that pretty much all my usual routines are totally different. i don't really know how to explain it, but basically i switched from driving to walking and from a small firm to a big firm. also, i can wear jeans whenever i want. (eep again!) and so i bought a bunch of new dresses. yeah, because that makes sense. i haven't done a budget recap in quite awhile, so i thought i'd better document my month of ridiculous shopping. i have somewhat of a disclaimer/post-rationalization though. first of all, in april and may i didn't buy much. i was really busy at work and just didn't find much that i liked. secondly, my job switcheroo included the payout of a chunk of vacation time that i could never get scheduling approval for. this resulted in a treat yo self (yes, tom and donna style) type of situation since christmas break never happened last year.
