two cool things

It seems like these days everyone is trying to do what they can to make or save a little extra money. I always figure that every little bit helps, and it's just a bonus when it doesn't require me doing anything extra. That's why I'm excited to share two recent discoveries: swagbucks and YouData. Swagbucks is just a search engine where you earn swagbucks for searching. Just like you normally search. When you get about 45 swagbucks (in about a month, depending on how often you search), you earn a $5 gift card to amazon (or lots of other places - amazon is my fave since they have nearly EVERYTHING). YouData earns you cash for looking at ads that are catered especially to you. You fill out a profile - a MeFile - and then ads are generated for you according to your profile. When you look at an ad you get money. When you click on it, you get more. They make deposits every Saturday into your paypal account. Pretty sweet if you ask me.

So, I've been kind of busy

I've never had such a long blogging hiatus. My apologies. Perhaps my absence is justified by the fact that my life has been completely consumed in the process of purchasing a home. In less than 48 hours, we should officially be homeowners! We'll definitely post some photos when we get settled in, but for now, a few from the MLS:
(we are super stoked for the big backyard and mature ash trees!)
(and for the newly updated bathrooms)
(and cool built-in bookshelves around the stone fireplace) (and hardwood floors!!)

In other news, I've been busy shaving my husband's head (on accident), getting ready for the move, trying to find renters for our condo (if you know anyone who might be interested, let me know!) and prepping for a lesson I taught in church on Sunday. After compiling all my notes on my laptop and needing to print from my desktop, I unintentionally emailed my lesson to some mysterious Sarah McSomething instead of myself - someone I probably did a craigslist transaction with many moons ago. Oh well, at least now she knows all about living in peace and harmony with others. Can't get angry at me for that now, can she?
