First of all I want to acknowledge how fortunate I am. I know, I am. I have more than I need and most of what I want. I have all of my holiday shopping done by Thanksgiving, unless it is an Apple product I need and then I wait for their once a year sale. My husband is not me. He actually braved the black friday shopping at our local target to procure for me an iPad air. I have wanted an iPad for quite some time. It wasn't until my children, yes both of them, started using the computer that I realized what a pain it was to actually get my own work done. Since I am an APPLE person, no pc junk in my world, it was important to me that I have an iPad. I could have had a table sooner I am sure if I had been okay with a PC model.
I am not however okay with it not being Mac. I use a Mac, iPhone and now iPad. You know what is awesome about that? If I save to the cloud, which I have been a part of since it was me.com, I can work on something on either platform. My calendar automatically syncs no matter which device I enter the event on, and now with the iPad, I won't have connectivity and Keynote issues when giving a presentation. That is right, I can access my keynote presentation from the computer on my iPad. I can even modify it!
Like I said, I am spoiled, but I am hoping this spoiling will also let me blog more, as I can edit pictures and post a blog post from my new toy as well.
All I can say is thank goodness the man didn't make me wait until the holiday!
This brings me to one final promotion, and no I am not getting paid for this. I have been handwriting menus for quite some time now. It gets old and it is hard to start and stop, switch rooms and move as necessitated by the little one. This month I started using a website called Plan To Eat. IT IS AWESOME. You enter your recipes, or find them online, then plop them on the planner on the day you want to make them. Then joy of JOYS this program creates your shopping list. Plus side is I can do this on the computer or iPad. For my recipe I just prop it up in the kitchen and there it is, no searching time required. LOVE IT! You do have to subscribe, but they also have a free trial so you can try it out. Now to just get myself to really plan all the meals, that would help me keep tack of what eat.
