Walter across the street has decided to sell his house. So, who wants to be our neighbor? It’s a cute 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath home with an attached Garage. He’s done a lot of work to it and it’s in really nice shape. I’d guess it’s around 1600 square feet or so.

So, someone whip out the checkbook and come live near us. Oh, ya. The price. It’s a tad high, but not too high. $1.275 Million. Yep. Better have a big check. And you wonder why we rent. (-:

We splurged and purchased a new coffee maker. It’s a multi purpose single cup coffee maker. A Keurig B30 Single Brew Coffee Maker. Takes 3 minutes to brew a cup of coffee, tea, cocoa, etc.

Keurig B30

Yes we splurged and paid $89 for a coffee maker. But, at Bed Bath and Beyond you can sign up for their email spam and get a 20% off coupon. So, the coffee maker only cost $71 and tax. Then we also purchased Tea, Cocoa, different coffee’s, a neat little carousel, loose leaf filter,  etc. You can see where this went. Ding ding ding. It added up.

Why you might ask? Well, I can get my coffee in the morning. The girls can make Hot Cocoa, and Roberta can make her Tea. All with the same machine. Roberta can’t drink coffee anymore, so there is usually half a pot left to waste after I go to work, but she loves tea and it doesn’t upset her stomach.

We still have the really nice coffee pot Paul and Marnie gave us for use when company comes over. But for the day to day this should work really well.

When we came back from Scotland we told our selves we would not buy cheap stuff. If we wanted something we would spend the money to get something nice. So, that’s what we did. The girls are going nuts over it.

Update: I forgot to add that Roberta thinks I’m a tad OCD because I created a spreadsheet with the different types of teas, coffees, etc with a rating system and put it on the wall over the coffee pot. That way we can rate the different types and know which ones we like and ones we don’t. We currently have 13 types of coffee, 3 different teas, and 2 cocoa’s. Without rating them, how would we know which were the best? Eh? See, makes sense doesn’t it. pthththt!!
