Black Friday and Cyber Monday passed by without any fanfare over the past half-decade. This year was different. This year, my kid got himself an Alexa and kept telling me how awesome it was.
So it was only right that I took advantage of the nearly 50% savings to get myself an Echo Dot. I can’t have my kid outshining me in technological toys. It just wouldn’t be right!
To be fair, I did try to talk myself out of it. In the end, it was a comment my husband made that won me over. He reminded me that I work hard and get them plenty of nice things. Why not get something for me, for a change?
Our family recently invested in some smart features, like an alarm system that tells me every time someone opens a door or window. Knowing that Alexa can help with future smart features, like thermostat control and lights, is pretty exciting!
Although December seems to have started on a high note, shadows loom in the distance. Be sure you’re subscribed to my newsletter to hear more about the memories I wrestle with each year during this month. The next one goes out tomorrow, and you don’t want to miss it.
P.S. I’ll also tell you how to tell how heavy a chili pepper is. 🌶️
