So happy to be here today! I think I’ve sort of turned the corner after two weeks of being sicker than a dog, but yesterday was a bad day and the only time I was up was when the Glass Guys brought and installed the shower doors.

And speaking of shower doors...my bathroom...IS DONE!!! Yes, of course, I’m shouting. My ten day to two weeks redo turned into 7 weeks. So, as promised and without further delay, here is the before and after:

I thought I’d finally share with you since I’d made such a stink about everything that was going wrong. Took forever, but overall, I’m pretty happy. You can’t see all the extra lighting, but it’s fabulous. I need lots of light in the bathroom. And I apologize for that stinking advertisement in the middle of the slideshow! They have to get their crap in here somehow, don’t they?

I have an Echo Dot! I actually have two. I like them! They’re fun to interact with (she tells really bad jokes) she tells me my calendar if I ask, lets me know when orders are shipped and delivered, but the one thing she can’t do is wake me to the radio in the morning. Unfortunately, she’s only able to do one thing at a time right now in that regard. I’ve pre-ordered the Echo Spot because I’ve been looking for a decent alarm for several years. Where we live now, radios have almost no reception when it comes to any AM talk programs and some of the FM ones are just too weak to get too. So right now, I have the phone set to wake me. I’m really hoping they build a better Alexa with the Spot. We’ll see.

What about you? Do you have any Alexa powered devices? I know you can use the Eufy and a few others and then of course, there’s Google Home. I don’t have all the lights and security and such that they can run, but if you do, I’d like to hear about it. Or not. You could just let us all know what your plans are this weekend. My plan is to try and get better. That’s been my plan though for two weeks now...smh

Please, as always, no politics. There are more than enough places in the Kinjaverse for those and more than enough people who will love to argue with you.
