Well, we’re officially one week in to the new year – how’s 2018 treating you so far? Over here it’s still as crazy as ever, like I’m juggling lots of balls at the same time – but so far I haven’t dropped any, so that’s a good thing, right?
My Christmas tree is still up – I just haven’t gotten motivated to take it down yet. Plus I kinda like saying “Alexa, turn the Christmas Tree on” in the morning, which she does, followed by an “OK”. I got a smart plug and an Echo Dot for my birthday from my BFF, so I’ve been having fun playing. I’ll have to figure out what else I’ll have to plug into the smart plug to have Alexa control for me.
Besides, with how bright this tree is, I’m going to have to get some lamps or something to brighten the living room up more, or it will seem kind of dark when I take this down:
“There’s just something about the dawning of a new age that makes people want to resolve to do better. It doesn’t matter that most of us will be eating half our weight in Cheetos before the day is done, our promise to go to the gym long forgotten. We like the idea of fresh starts and clean breaks. It’s human nature.”
“And here’s the thing: fictional characters are no exception. They want to lose weight, learn a new language, and spend less money because at the end of the day, they’re just like us. So what kinds of things would they resolve to do? We have some thoughts.”
That’s a wrap for this week – you know the drill, link up and join in the fun, everyone is welcome, random or not. And that means even if you don’t have a specific Random Tuesday Thoughts Rebel post posted, you can still link up, I’m not picky. You don’t even have to add the badge, just link up so I can come harass you on your blog. I promise to play nice.
