NRR. What are you addicted too besides running? (Read 484 times)

    My wife tells me I am a "clothes hoar" and buy too many clothes. 

     

    Yes, I am a man who shops and cooks and does the laundry and doesn't fix things.

     

    Buys too many clothes? Cycles? Are you my long-lost brother?

     

    I am also really awesome at procrastinating. I'll tell you all the story of how I became so good at it someday...

     

    I also enjoy drinking beer and eating waffles (thankfully I run eh?).

    In the words of my late-coach : Just hang in there, relax... and at the end of a race anyone you see.....just pass them

        I'm also kind of obsessive about budgeting. But it's a good obsession--we have gone from being 25k in debt with no savings to debt-free with over 10k in savings in about 3 years. And that was while we were dealing with a "surprise" pregnancy and various bouts of unemployment. So that particular addiction has served me well.

        Running for two!

            I used to have an addiction to real estate and beach houses, renovation and decorating. http://dunestosea.com/st-peters.html

            The ensuing mortgage cured me of that addiction.Big grin Now, I'm addicted to only two things: running marathons and cocooning on the couch.

              I am addicted to reading, knitting, and crocheting. Unfortunately I can't embroider, yet... but i know a couple of great teachers. Now, if only they were closer....

                  Thanks, Hilary! They are like my babies, my little creations. :-) They can also be headaches when it comes to maintenance. Just like kids, I guess. Big grin

                        I failed to mention cuddling with my two poodles. They get more love than the hubby. I love taking naps with them.

                        running is bad for you

                           My husband is an engineer and cooks and cleans. I wish he loved shopping. Sad  He is the jack of all trades and can do just about anything. We've never hired a mechanic and we built our home from scratch. 

                           

                          Baboon loving to shop is a blessing AND a curse.......

                           

                          And for the record, I CAN cook (he gets home before me) and I CAN do laundry (he just doesn't like how I fold his t shirts) LOL Big grin

                           

                          I don't think there is any one thing I'm addicted to.  I go through phases - like one week I'll eat peanut butter every day and then not have it for a month.

                           

                          OOPS WAIT I thought of something.....I have an addiction to Jackets.  Seriously - I have one for every weather contingency.  My current favorite is an Arc'teryx number I picked up on departmentofgoods.com pppuuurrrrrr  LOVE IT.  AND I partially love it for the thrill of the chase.  No purchase is at full retail Wink

                            Happy to be running

                              Call of Duty, I've wasted many hours on that series of games. Mostly online muti-player.
