Day 40: Items Purchased: 0, Temptation Radar: 0
Let the record show that on Wednesday, February 9, 2011, the 40th day of Shopfast, the shopfastee, Aimee Reed, did in fact experience a very real identification with one of the Bible’s greatest heroes: Noah. For, she too felt the cavernous isolation of solitude at day 40 of a seemingly never-ending journey of obedience. Riding the ark of her commitment, she longed for a respite. The only difference? If memory serves, Noah’s flood stopped on this day and he received an Olive Branch from a lovely dove; a sign the end was near. Conversely, Aimee sent a small toddler to the mailbox, with hopes of a Nordstrom Note, only to receive a new shiny installment of SaksFifthAvenue Spring Catalog. Sigh. How many more days?
