Go ahead and buy those shoes, it's National Splurge Day.

For the past few days I have been feeling down in the dumps. I'm not quite sure why, but it's been a bunch of things all wrapped into one.

I felt bad for not entertaining my guests Monday for the Hawks game, but my basement flooded.

I felt bad for not being at work Tuesday, but I was pumping water out of my basement all day.

There are many other reasons that I won't bother you with, but it is what it is. I was in a funk. It happens to the best of us.

But then, today, a light came through the tunnel. It's National Splurge Day!

What exactly is National Splurge Day? I'll give you some examples on how to celebrate:

  • Throw your diet out the window and eat the biggest piece of cake you can imagine.
  • Keep your planned lunch in the fridge at work and treat yourself to a giant piece of pizza.
  • Had your eye on those fancy shoes that were a little over priced? Buy them... without a coupon!
  • Treat yourself to a cocktail, on a work night!
As my favorite television show cast says, just #treatyoself.
