I helped Mary buy a cell phone today. She had one in SENEGAL, but she really needed an update. We ended up just getting a SIM CARD at first because the guy at the TMobile counter assured us it could be inserted into any phone and then used with SUCCESS.

It turns out this is not so. You have to buy a TMobile branded phone for this to work. It would have been nice to know that before we made two trips to Best Buy, one trip to Target, and two trips to the mall.

However, I spent the day with my SISTER, who is STILL here. I can't get over it. I'm so happy I could SPIT.

Is she here for a vacation or back for good?

She's back for good, but she may decide to move somewhere else at some point. But for now, she's here!

We bought a sim card before our trip to France, as we were assured that was all we needed. Turns out not to be true. Problem was we didn't realize that until we were already in France. And our French speaking capabilities are quite limited so we just abandoned the whole idea of using our cell phone while on vacation. Turned out that was fine too.
