OK, I know this is all self inflicted but I need some serious lovebombing here to get me out of panic mode...

I've just moved to a new apartment that I'm renovating/restoring. I've allready spend a fortune on the wood flooring (massive olied oak) and I've been planning and ordering a new kitchen (wich will make a serious dent in any wallet).

I'm also a serious photographer and I've been waiting for years for Nikon to launch a semi-pro fullframe body. I've said for years that when they launch that body I'll upgrade to FF gear (mighty expensive). A couple months ago I got word they where going to release one so I signed up for it and some new FF glass to go with it.

One of my other hobbies (obsessions really) is hifi and home cinema. It so happened that I sepparated a couple months ago and maybe a couple weeks later a friend and I took a couple beers with one of his friends. He is an excentric loudspeaker designer guru that has designed what I would describe as the most potent and accurate speaker systems available today (and I've heard them all...). Having listened to me rambling on about my sepparation (and drinking vast amounts of my homebrew, I might add) he said he had a pair of his ultra reference speaker cabinets for immediate delivery and spontaneously offered me them at a huge discount (usually it's 1-3 YEARS delivery time for his reference speakers and they are *not* cheap). So, I thought f*ck it, it's a one in a lifetime opportunity and I bought them...

So, what about the cash flow? Well, at 9:00 today I bought a huge wardobe system at IKEA. Way more money than I anticipated (IKEA is supposed to be cheap!). At 10:00 the company delivering the kitchen called and said that it was ready for delivery (and payment. Today...). at 11:00 the guy with the speakers called and said he would have the speakers assembled and ready for delivery saturday and would that he would like to come over to my place to tune them to my room (and get paid). At 14:00 the photo shop called and said that if I don't collect (and pay) the house today they will sell it to the next guy in line.

Gdang, I don't think I've ever spent so much money in one day as today. Still I think I feel OK

The thing is that I JUST DRANK THE LAST "ÖL" (beer/homebrew). I'm on french peer cognac now...Chers, "ol' chap"!

PS. Never thought about the word "öl" ("beer") before. "ö" is actually "o" and "e" combined into one letter making "oel" which is prononced "ale"... hmm... what a coincidence...

Take a deep breath, exhale, take another deep breath, exhale, continue....
It will be okay! It may have been a rough financial day but you have lots of cool stuff and you are well on your way to the life you wanted.

Amount of money spent= lots
Amount of enjoyment gained= holy crap a bunch!!
Have a few and you will forget all about the money. Or maybe I have had a few and it just sounded good. Live in the moment I say.

I feel for you brother! I remember writing a check for $75,000 as a down payment on my house...that's the largest check I ever wrote...damned near took half my savings...

I wrote another large check 2 years later and paid off the house.

Now I'm just socking it away...

Can I borrow your money, or better yet just give it to me.

Spending a bunch of money at once can be an enjoyable experience, but I always feel some regret the next few days. Kind of like a bad hangover.
