So I received a generous Christmas Bonus this past year. I had planned all year what I might do with said bonus should I get it. Last year, my previous bonus was going to a Camera and an ipod touch, but then Tim needed suits and I needed new shoes. Since I didn’t have enough for the stuff I decided that I would use what was left for a Trip to NY to visit my sister. I did and it was fun. but I regret not having a good camera to capture the moment.
This year I vowed if I got such a bonus again I was going to buy a camera. I have been researching all year long. I had Narrowed it down to a Canon T2i or a EOS 60D. They fit my hand better and seem to have the features that I want for a more economical price. The 60 D is the one I really wanted but the T2i was more in my price range. I also decided that Boxing week is the best time, the prices are more to my liking.
I got the bonus on Friday the 31. I was going to go get the camera right away, but my husband had other plans for his time and store close early on New Years Eve. I decided I would be patient. I can wait until tomorrow, but again others had plans so my desires were again put aside. I was sort of ok with it, after all boxing week is extended to January 6th. I’m patient. It pays to be patient. Right?
Well not this time. Yes boxing week is extended, but it never occurred to me that my two potential cameras would go off sale. I guess prices ARE subject to change without notice. This sucks and now the T2i is just beyond my reach. I am so mad. I mad at others for pushing their schedules (sleeping, bakery game etc.) ahead of mine, but I am mostly mad at myself for not making my desires more heard. I don’t want to wait another year. I’m also afraid that mysteriously something expensive will be “needed” like last time and again the camera money will have to be used. I wonder what it will be this time. I bet it will be the dentist. I need to go see one. Maybe something on the car will go. What ever it is I am sure you get the picture.
