What Do I Buy Next?

About Me

I was raised in South Florida back in the years when it was a peaceful and wonderfully safe place to live. We lived a mile from the beach and could ride our bikes over the intercoastal bridge right to the best beach around. All my years of growing up I was a competitive swimmer and belonged to AAU. I granduated from Florida State University with a BS degree in nursing. I am recently retired but I'm thinking of going back to work to support my hobbies.

I Didn't Do Much Damage Today

I did tape HSN from 2 to 4 A.M. on my DVR and watched it the first thing this morning, but I already had almost all of the scrapbooking items that they had on, so I did very little damage.  I just bought a set of hand-made cards.  I send cards all the time, and sometimes I just don't have time to make one, so I have to go out and buy it.  Unless I go to the Dollar Store, those suckers can cost up to $4.50 apiece!  So I rationalized that purchase by the fact that each card I send out of that set will save me about $2.50.

Let me tell any readers who happen on my site a little about myself.  I am a recently retired R.N.  I worked for over 31 years with the same doctor and stayed with him when he joined a multi-specialty medical group.  On June 22nd of this year (my birthday, in fact), I was informed that my position was going to be eliminated, and they no longer had a job for me.  So, here I am, every day, wondering "What do I do now?"  I love to do crafts and scrapbooking, and I sell Scentsy (check out my website:  ""), but these things do not a career make.  I need to at least work part-time in able to support my hobby habits.  But as you can see, my out-go greatly exceeds my income.  My husband and I are both living on Social Security and (for a while) my unemployment benefits.  I've never worked in a hospital, and I'm too old to work those 12 hr. shifts anyway.  I feel that eventually the Lord will lead me in the right direction.  He always does.  So, in the meantime, I'm learning to cook again, which I haven't done much since our two daughters married and moved away.  My husband used to be Vice President of Master Craft Boat Co.,  After he retired, we moved to his mother's farm, and now we're basically farmers - at least we have cattle during the spring and summer.  In the winter, we mostly just "hole up".  We live in East Tennessee, so we don't get much snow, but it sure can get cold and ugly.  Well I won't bore you anymore.  I'll talk to you again tomorrow, hopefully.
