I fucked myself. Not literally. Jenny said I reminded her that she needed to buy more of her eye cream. So that's how I fucked myself, by asking her a question about it. She said she needed that and some primer something or other...I don't know what. I just said "ok" without really listening. Her purse was upstairs, so she asked for my debit card instead. It's the same account, so it doesn't really matter. We have separate ones too, but yeah...that's beside the point. I just looked at our bank account and she just spent $238 in like five minutes on the Sephora website. I asked her about it, and she said, "Uh...well, yeah, I needed some other stuff too." I said, "Needed or wanted?" and she said, "Well, a little bit of both." Haha.

God, women are expensive.

I guess I can't talk. I buy myself stuff on Amazon on a whim. Not over $200 worth of stuff at a time though. Damn. She can spend money so fast it's ridiculous. It took her no time at all to find and buy everything she wanted or "needed." She grew up getting everything she wanted, and really, that hasn't changed much. A little, but not much. I'm an enabler lol.

Ross and Rachel are breaking up, and it makes me sad. It's a sad episode. I think I might cry. Not really. It is sad though.

Seriously, though...being a guy is SO much less expensive than being a woman. It's insane. It's especially less expensive than being Jenny. I will never understand how or why she needs to continually spend so much money on things like that. It's like it's never enough. I think maybe she has a little bit of the Hungry Ghost inside of her too haha.

I need to go take NyQuil or something. It's 1:30 and I'm wide awake. I won't be able to sleep for hours. I'm afraid NyQuil will knock me out for way too long though. This is quite the dilemma.

We're supposed to go to a friend's house for a Super Bowl party tomorrow. Jenny doesn't care either way, and I kind of don't want to go. I'd rather just stay home and watch it with B. I know his friend is coming over to watch it, and I'd really rather just have my friend Nick come over and watch it with B and his friend at my house. I'm such an old, boring fuck now. I'm spending my Saturday night at home on the internet, and I want to stay at home being lazy for the Super Bowl instead of going to a Super Bowl party. I'm just going to blame the little cold I have instead of my age and boringness (yes, that's a word...at least in my book). Then I can feel less lame. Well, I guess staying home on a Saturday night is pretty normal for me now that I have kids. But skipping out on a Super Bowl party to sit at home? That's a once a year thing. I shouldn't want to stay home for it.

Dammit, Ella just woke up. Jenny is asleep, so I'd better go see what she needs. Probably nothing. She just likes to cry in the middle of the night. I think she enjoys waking us up. It really does seem that way sometimes. Well sorry, Ella...but I'm already awake. You lose your little game this time.

I have to say I don't spend loads of primers and stuff, I find the cheaper stuff works just as good and if anything you are paying for the name - also Sephora tests on animals and I hate that for makeup/beauty products. Sorry for the mini rant! - but honestly check the sephora products ingredients you can get stuff just as good at a 1/4 of the price!

Well, Sephora has lots of different brands though. Not all of the companies who sell stuff there test on animals. Sephora's own brand might, but not everything there.

I'm sure you can! She'll use some cheaper stuff, but the majority of her stuff is higher end. She's a makeup junkie, no doubt about it.

Yeah Im not expensive.. of course I have too work too pay for my things. If she had too work for the money more then being a stay at home mom she wouldn't spend over $200 on makeup. So not all women are expensive. Lol.

Ohhhh Amazon is so nice! I love how cheap things are on there!

That might be true. Although she'd probably blow any money she made the same way.

I know! Me too. I also like how you can put things in your cart and save them for later, and it tells you when the prices increase or decrease. I've gotten some really good deals by watching that. Particularly with TV show seasons.

I think it should be something done in moderation. Saving money is nice, but everyone should treat themselves to something sometimes.

Speaking as a woman... I would never dream of spending $283 of my man's dollars on makeup. Holy crap. Or my own money. I buy cheap stuff and then get mad when it wears off early lol

Well, it's "our" money. Yeah, I'm the one who works for it, but she has her own unpaid full-time job taking care of the kids all day. So it wouldn't be fair to say it's my money. It's ours equally.

She grew up really spoiled, so that's just kind of how she is. I have actually brought her way more down to Earth about stuff like that. I didn't grow up with that much, so we kinda came from two different worlds. She's still a bit of a shopaholic though, and definitely a makeup junkie. She's not nearly as bad about spending money as she once was though. But yeah...she's definitely way more frivolous with money than I am. I like being able to spoil her to a certain extent, but she definitely does have a bit of a shopping problem haha.

Jenny is definitely not a cheap date lol.

I can understand the "our" money thing. I've just never been in that kind of relationship. Jenny is lucky!

Chris doesn't make that much more than me, and that's only because he always gets 40 hours and works overtime... otherwise I would make more than him.
