Ah, the satisfaction of decisions made. Oh, the alleviation of guilt. How good it feels to take the less expensive option, the pleasure of outweighing the dream of the more expensive option, and the further lifting of guilt by balancing an earlier extravagant decision. Sigh, the resultant reduction in expectations that was surprisingly lacking in pain, and the knowledge that expectations will be easier to meet or exceed now.
Ooooh, the beginning of anticipation.
