Life Things

1.  The credit union where our line of credit (lower interest than regular mortgage secured seven years ago) is  deposited $180 into our bank account as dividends. Instead of taking it out of the bank I immediately applied it against our principal - that felt good.

2.  My four year old laptop started acting up with the screen going dark while the computer was working fine  - thanks to google I figured out a quick fix.  Take the battery out and hold the on button for a minute.  No issues since.  Others have purchased a new laptop over this same issue relating to static electricity.  A new laptop is in my future as we use it for business but I would rather buy one later in the year than right now.

Cheers and have a nice weekend!


  1. I like the new look!


  2. I like the new look too! And good work on transferring that deposit straight to the principal. Excellent idea!

  3. Looks great!! Can't wait the ESTY shop.

  4. I love the new look! And, yeah for computer problems you can solve on your own, & making an extra principal payment. Win, & win!!

  5. Hi there! I wanted to come over and say thank you for stopping by Simplify and leaving a nice comment. I will be back, as I like what I see.

  6. love the new look, can't wait to see your new etsy store.

    My laptop gave up the ghost, it was due to many, many problems....and it was cheaper to buy a new one than get the old one fixed!!


  7. Your blog looks great! Love the blue! :) We replaced our laptop last year... they do choose inconvenient times to bite the dust don't they?! lol!
