My house has a secret.
By night, when the kids are in bed, the toys get put away and everyone (including the dog) gathers in the living room for a nice glass of Merlot and a foot-up rest.
I’m not a big TV watcher. In fact, up until I got my Digital Video Recorder (DVR), I only used my television at all to watch movies. Once I had my DVR up and running, I could happily watch a show during what I love to call my “quiet time” – 7AM on the couch with a steaming cup of Colombian coffee.
Let’s face it, we are busy moms, so we don’t have a whole lot of time to bid on things on eBay. I’m more of a “Buy it now” kind of gal; usually it still saves me WAY more money than if I had bought it new. Besides, I’m also a stresser; I don’t need the extra worry of seeing people outbid me when there’s still seven hours to go until the auction ends!
Every morning when I’m at my kitchen pouring coffee, I can glance over and see a few key pieces of information I need to start my day:
- The indoor temperature
- The outdoor temperature/humidity
- What kind of layers I need to wear
