There was a time when someone would spend a week mapping out and planning all of the essentials needed to take a holiday vacation. Lists on what clothes to pack, the quickest and shortest way to get to your destination, the emergency numbers to EVERY place you would be staying at for the pet sitter, even the last minute notes to not forget to stop the mail delivery or your toothbrush in the morning. You get in the car and start driving with a mental victory for you have triumphed over forgetfulness, then your spouse says those dreaded words, “did you turn off the coffeemaker and set the thermostat on the AC?” Oh No! Darn you forgetfulness!
In this era of convenience and technology, there are so many tools and toys that can make someone’s day a little more fun and manageable. Like the automatic shut off on your coffeemaker, there are ways to manage the thermostat on your AC.
