So with my husband gone for two weeks, I go into my normal obsessive compulsive mode. First - I label all of my Hermes goodies with my Brother labelmaker(with the labels in the exact same place on each box of course). Then I catelog all of my purchases in a journal with columns for where I bought it, what it is, how much it cost, name if applicable, and shipping. There is a special place in the journal for recording the phone charges when calling around to different Hermes locations. Then (and this is the crazy bit) I go and buy wee little envelopes to put my ribbons in with the name of the item it belongs with on the outside of the envelope. These then go in their own organizer. Sometime during this weekend I bought 4 pochettes, a special box for a cotton scarf I won (because it is cotton and therefore different, the box must be different and boy was it different - $40 different!!!), and am currently waiting for a call from my SA about 2 more pochettes and 2 scarf rings. That does not include the plisse and pochette I lost out on on eBay. I am not certain as to my life expectancy. My husband will more than likely return only to kill me. I am supposed to be limiting my accumulating and spending because of an impending cross country move. Sigh. I did read and appreciate the thread about slowing down and appreciating what I already own. But what about the ones I don't own yet? I need to appreciate them as well. They are waiting for me.
