Sims 2 - Addiction

You know that you are a gaming freak, when you just have to buy a copy of The Sims 2, and then hide it from your husband, because he'll moan about the money that you've just spent. I rationalised my purchase by reminding myself that the hubby plays golf every Saturday, and that costs money too, then it's also breakfast with the guys, drinks after the 9th hole and then an entire afternoon of drinks after the 18th. So my plan is to keep it hidden until it's reasonable to think that I may have stumbled across a second hand copy, or until I can claim to have 'bought it ages ago', by which time of course it would be silly for him to complain. Or I could also remind myself that it's MY money and no-one (not even the person who puts a roof over my head and is the father of my unborn child) but no-one tells me what to do with my money... but somehow I don't think I'll win any argument using that tack. It's just quite frustrating having to listen for the sound of his car in the driveway, and then praying to be able to shut down the programme by the time his key hits the lock in the front door...I could of course also claim that it costs less than scrapbooking, so he shouldn't complain at all. :)
