About Me

Judy G.
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.

ON ANOTHER BUYING FREEZE!

I have definitely put myself on another "buying freeze"!!  No more craft or online puchases for the rest of the month.  I've gotten out of control again on eBay buying Cricut cartridges, and I know I won't ever use half of them.  It's a compulsion with me, because all I have to do is push a button that says "Place Bid".  Mark my words - I am through!!  Instead I'm going to concentrate on living healthily and starting back with my exercise program.  Maybe I'll use up some calories that way.  I and a friend of mine visited the new National Fitness Center in town today, and it was really great - and somewhat less expensive than the fitness center I already belong to (that I never visit).  We decided to give it a try because both of us felt that if we went together we'd be more apt to keep it up.  Anyway, we have 10 days to decide whether we want to commit or not.  It has a great pool, and also a movie theatre that has treadmills in it instead of seats.  You can get your walking in while you watch a movie.  Cool!!  I'll let you know how that works out.  My visit to this gym and the subsequent "sales pitch" is the reason I didn't get my video done today.  Hopefully tomorrow!  Time for bed now.

I know exactly what you mean. I have only been paper crafting for a few months and already hubby is putting me on a budget...bless him, he puts up with a lot from me!
The new gym sound terrific - I only wish I could watch a movie while I walk - mind you, I guess I could take my Nook tablet and headphones, right?
So glad I found you - looking forward to much more time spent with you - so much better than Ebay!

@britgirl58.... I am finding it hard to stick to my guns on this buying freeze, but so far I've gone to the gym instead. Today I was able to watch 45 minutes of Mission Impossible III while I did the treadmill in the dark. It was kind of spooky, I must say! Thanks for visiting my blog! Judy
