I feel like such an ass! And yet, I am happy about it in a way. I do online banking. My account is completely separate from the X's, but yet, I still have access to the X's account (don't really know why, but I do and I am not pointing this out to him). Only when I am really not thinking about things will I end up going into his account rather than my own. This was the case this morning. And I was super shocked. Not only is he going through his money super fast, but he is spending in really strange places - and ones that I don't understand. So, back to back days - I saw a purchase at Eddie Bauer store - $400 - nice, I thought, he's finally taking care of looking good - good for him. THEN, I see a transaction at the Salvation Army Thrift store - $15 bucks. (Don't think of me as a snob please but...) so what would someone with a bunch of money need to be buying at sally ann? I am super curious, but can't be, I know. It seems sad in a way - that he still consumes my thoughts. But, I am off to New York City baby! Next week - gone. Taking the first of many to be 'screw you' travels. I have always loved the idea of traveling and now I will be spending a full week in NYC with a girlfriend - look out, I am off my leash and ready to party.
