Under The Influence

a caffeinated woman is a happy woman!


Well this is pretty cool. I was practically ‘given’ a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 yesterday.
I really didn’t think I was going to like it because it’s a 7″, and I’m used to my
iPad2. But, the more I’ve fiddled around with it, and added a couple of apps, the
more I like it.

I especially like this one app that gives me a devotional every day. It’s great to
wake up to the Word of God and a few minutes of prayer and praise time before
heading out to my day.

I also have a calendar for appointments, alarms, online banking, a couple of games,
and more.

Pretty cool. :)

New House

Ed and I have finally found a house that he wants to purchase.  He signed the papers and put a down payment on it a few days ago.  I am thrilled!

The house needs a LOT of work. We had a home inspection done, and thankfully, the owner is willing to pay for most of the repairs.  The ones he was unwilling to pay for are inconsequential, like a new kitchen floor. I would have wanted to choose the tile, etc so we’re paying for that.

I will be going to the house tomorrow to take ‘before’ pictures of the interior and will post them here.  But below is the front of our new home.
