the lamp

I bought a lamp on Monday.

It’s been a long time coming.  I haven’t had a bedside lamp since…well…maybe my whole married life.

First it was because we didn’t have any money.  Then it was because I couldn’t find a matching lamp.

Then it was because of infertility and that whole money thing.  You know, if you deprive yourself of a damn lamp, that $40 will pay for half an estrogen level.  And so it goes.  You don’t travel, you don’t buy those shoes, or that cup of coffee.  Or the lamp.

I bought the lamp.  I love it.  I’m probably going to go back and buy a second one.  You know, so they match.

Take that, infertility.

  1. This gave me goose bumps.Glad you got that lamp–and yes, infertility be damned. You are inspiring me to go get something I have put off for a long time, too.

  2. I’m glad you’re reclaiming your life. Good for you!
    There are some home improvements that need doing in my house as well.
