Time for a change

I need a new watch. I've been wearing a Timex Ironman watch since I seriously started training a couple 4 years ago. Even though it's pink I'm done with it. I rarely do things that require my timing it, plus I'm not going to throw the watch away, I'll still have it if and when I need it. But I use my Garmin for running. I have a computer on my bike. I don't swim at all lately. Why exactly do I need this watch that has a 100 lap memory and various timing modes? I'm not even in the lab anymore where I need to time tests. So that's it. I'm done with it. But I'm also unemployed. What's a girl to do??

Well, I did what any computer savvy, smart woman would do. I headed over to buy.com to see what they had on sale. Earlier this year I got the camera I carry with me there for such a fabulous price I was talking about it for days. So I went a looking. Okay, so truthfully I also looked at the Wii because I'm a child at heart but that will have to wait until I'm employed again. So, back to watches.

I have a pretty specific idea of what I want in a watch. I'm pretty much a nut for analog. Don't ask me why, I do not know, but I am. I also like dark faces. In the past I've purchased small men's watches because they are more along the lines of what I like. So I'm looking through the watches and I find this:

It's a Timex watch. It's unisex so it's on the smaller side. It has an alarm. It has indiglo. It is dark face. It has a date. It's everything I want in a watch. And it's only $53 with free shipping. At that price even someone unemployed could afford it. So I'm considering it. One thing I have learned is self control. I have found a watch I really like. I will sit on it for a while and see if I still want it. That's the good thing with buy.com, it will still be there.

So there it is. I'm upgrading everything else, my hair, my makeup, my clothes. I think it's time to upgrade my watch.
