Spending Money Again

Yesterday was another expensive day. I recently received a bonus check for my efforts last year. We paid off some bills, pumped up the kids college funds and then decided to spend something on ourselves.

Suzanne has been wanting an elliptical trainer of late and been doing a bunch of research. She says she wants it for me, but I dont buy all that. I wish I worked out half as much as she does. Anyways, while in town last night for some dinner, we stopped by Sears and they had a model that she liked from her research on sale, so we bought on. All I know is that it’s a Nordic Trac model. I gave it a go and it seems pretty nice. The kids loved trying all the different models out in the store and got a pretty good workout.

I hope to use it too as the treadmill has been giving us a lot of issues lately. It’s 10+ years old and really needs to be replaced. If I find myself using the elliptical trainer like I hope I do, we will probably get a new treadmill so we have some variety. Toss in the Bow Flex that we have and there really isn’t any reason for me not to get in better shape and lose a few pounds. The treadmill should be ready to go on Wednesday.

Now, I don’t really consider buy an elliptical trainer buying something for ourselves 😉 so I went online this morning and order that remote control I have been wanting but never was able to pull the trigger due to delay after delay on it’s availability. It’s widely available now, so I decided to get it. I don’t watch much TV these days, but when I do, or when I am watching a movie, I really hate having to pick up 5 remotes to set everything up. This Logitech Harmony 1000 remote control will fix that.

Oh, and Suzanne doesn’t know that I ordered the remote control, so shhhhhh….
