They are KILLING ME!!

I need to be saved from myself! Everyday it happens. Day after day after day. 364 days a year. I can usually restrain myself, walk away and not look back. But this time of year it becomes more and more difficult. I'm like an addict. At the same time everyday, there I am. Waiting and wondering what it will be this time. Salivating while I watch. Yesterday it was the Click Free. The day before that it was a Breadman Bread Machine. Today, it's makeup. I'm not talking frivolous stuff here. I'm talking good stuff. The kind of stuff that makes your life easier. Or makes you look like you have had a great nights sleep. Or saves your life by backing up your computer with one little click. I want it. I want it all! That's right, I'm talking about QVC and their Today's Special Value. Starting in October every year, suddenly I become this insane person that has to tune in to see what the TSV is. And the worst part is I can no longer walk away from it. Oh no, I have to pick up the phone and say, hey, send me that, it's such a great bargain, a wonderful item, meant just for me and 6000 other addicts just like me! I want need that clickfree gizmo so bad I can taste it. And the makeup, Mally says it will last for 5 days if I want it to. Think of the time that would save me. Think of the stitching I could get done if I didn't have to spend hours doing my face everyday all in an effort to make me look well rested. And the bread machine, OMG the time and money I could save with that!! Well, actually the bread machine probably would save me time and money. Have you ever tried to make gluten free bread? It's a wee bit on the icky sticky side. And to buy a loaf is incredibly expensive. So I have to confess that as hard as I tried, I could not talk myself out of it. This baby is on it's way to my house and will arrive on my doorstep before I know it.

Okay, in my defense, Abby has been asking for a bread machine so she could try her hand at making her gluten free bread. The store bought stuff is pretty awful and very expensive. I could say I was giving it to her for Christmas and then you might say, She's not an addict, she's a loving caring mom, just trying to help her daughter out. I'd be lying if I told you that though. It's not a Christmas present. What mother worth her salt would ever think of giving a 22 year old a bread machine as their Christmas Present. Not me!! Nope, as soon as it arrives, we're making bread. Just as long as it's not at 11:00 p.m. central standard time. I have a date with the TV at that time! Hmmmmm, I wonder what the TSV will be tonight?? Christmas items? Clothing? Electronics? Jewelry, oooooh yea baby. Jewelry would be good.......

Your post cracked me up. I used to be a fan of QVC, but I was accumulating things from that place like I was cross stitch stuff. One of them had to go before the stuff ran me out of house and home - QVC got the boot...and I miss it dearly! LOL

I am a QVC virgin..never have watched it and never have ordered from it. Never plan to eaither! LOL!! You will have to let me know how it works for the g.free bread.

LOL, i enjoyed reading your post! I must confess that i am a QVC virgin too, i have watched it on the odd occasion but never got as far as buying.

Good luck with the bread making machine,show us a piccy of the finished loaf! and if you ever do try that make up that wipes away all signs of tiredness do let me know if it works so i can get me some lol

You must be my soul twin because I too long for the TSV this time of year. Maybe it's because Christmas is right around the corner and I'm preparing for Christmas gifts or maybe it's because I always "nest" this time of year and the TSV are always geared to making our homes cozier and ourselves a wee bit prettier.
When I see the UPS truck I'm expecting him or perhaps willing him to STOP at my house an hand me a big box that has QVC stamped on it. This happens on a daily basis even though I haven't ordered from QVC since last November. LOL LOL

Ooooh, bad QVC...I avoid it like the plague...I KNOW that I have an addictive personality (as is evidenced by my overflowing stitching stash), so it's no QVC for me!

But, I did enjoy reading your post! LOL!

HAPPY STITCHIN'

Glad to hear I'm not the only one out there with this problem. I feel better now!

Cindy said...

LOL!! I used to be addicted to it, but really try to avoid it these days. Now that you mention it, there usually is an awesome Philosophy Amazing Grace fragrance package this time of year that I can't pass up :)

Too funny, wonder if there is an intervention about this!!!!
And I'm glad you aren't using it as Amy's Christmas present!!!

I love my bread maker, I make my dough in there, and then make buns.
I hope it works on the g-free bread, then your soul will be redeemed! lol

I love QVC. I'm so glad it's not in Ireland (we get the UK version) because it's too tempting.
