I found out my social worker for my foster/adoption is retiring in a month. This has it's pros and cons. She has been working part time and this means she is hard to get a hold of some times. It also means that I have to break in a new social worker and hopefully we click. I am sure we will be fine. It is a chance to meet a new person.
A friend gave me this for my birthday, isn't it cool?
CATWOMAN!! I am putting it on the same shelf as my Hermione wand and Hedwig the owl. Just a little geek out.
As you probably have figured out I have been checking things to do off my list. Today I finally called Amazon about my Amazon Echo remote. When I changed passwords and wifi in my home, my Amazon Echo didn't work. I finally got that to work and then the remote didn't work. I tried for days to "pair" them to no avail. Giving up each time. The reason I need the remote is with my 1920 walls, Alexa can't hear me increase or decrease the volume when the phone rings so I have to get up to turn her on or off. Thus defeating the purpose of having Alexa. The remote is great. I keep it with me when I am working and I can talk into it and turn Alexa on and off, mute her or even ask her questions. When Alexa stopped working I stopped using the Echo very much. Today I called Amazon to see if I was doing something wrong. The remote was broken. It just died. Sob. Amazon is so great even though it is not under warranty, they credited me a new remote. It arrives on Thursday! I feel I will be more productive with my Alexa working again.
