No weigh in today. We drove out of town last night to Laughlin. Right now I am probably sitting in the hot sun on the Colorado River.
Remember this post where I was trying to decide between buying a Nook, Nook Color or iPad. I really couldn’t decide plus money is a factor. I asked opinions on facebook, talked to friends and browsed in the shop. I ping ponged back and forth and then finally came to a decision. Then I had to wait for the credit cards to cycle so the $ will be on the next bill.
I decided to go with the new Nook e-ink. It retails for $139, much more budget friendly. The issue with the Nook color and iPad is they are not e-ink so you get the same fatigue as reading a computer screen. My nook is the e-ink, so just books, no fancy apps or games or email.
Eventually I will probably get a smart phone. Then again maybe not. The data plans start at $30 a month, $360 extra dollars a year. Ouch! Again we have so many BIG things we HAVE to do to the house with no extra funds. I have until December when I CAN get a new phone. Sure, I can say f-it and get the new smart phone but …
As far as a goal gift. When I start being consistently on track and seeing the right direction on the scale I will re-visit a goal gift. Right now my head is not in the game. Consistency is the issue. Too many flub ups to be considered successful right now.
