I’m not like most women that you know.
Heck, I’m not even like most of the women that I know.
Usually, they talk about their new purse, their new shoes, getting their hair or nails done, or going on some fancy vacation. I’m really just not like that at all. Sometimes, I feel like there must be something wrong with me because I am literally not interested in those things one little bit. I think that I am probably the most sensible person on the planet, and when I ask for certain gifts for the holidays or for my birthday, it really reflects that sensibility that I’m known for. Last year for Christmas, I asked for a new set of logs for our gas log fireplace. I really love sitting by the fireplace and I knew that a new fireplace insert would be something that I would be able to enjoy all year long. My husband went out and bought the perfect thing for the fireplace and now we have the best fireplace ever! If I hadn’t asked for the new fireplace insert, that never would have happened. This year, for my birthday, I have decided that I’m going to tell him that I want a new digital smart thermostat for our HVAC system. In my opinion, a smart thermostat is something that will keep on giving all year long! We will be able to save lots of money on our heating and cooling bills because a smart thermostat actually learns your family’s schedule and is able to adjust itself accordingly. I can’t wait to start using it.
