My first instinct is my Macbook Pro, then my Blackberry. But I don't know if they really make life easier, seems like they actually make it harder at times. Cell phones mean someone can call me no matter where I am and bug me, or ask something of me. Before I could just off and go do whatever and I could choose to deal with a phone call at the end of the day. And my laptop, sure it's easier then going to the "big computer" down in the basement, but since it is so easy to access I am on it all the time! Laundry and dishes pile up and it ultimately makes life more difficult.
So what really makes my life easier? Winter.
Let me explain. See this image? This is my house last winter. What do you notice? No lawn to be mowed! No dirt, no sand, no dogs covered in mud! And inside that cozy little cabin you would find kids playing games, in warms sweaters sitting by the fire place (Smaller power bills!) Also, since it's cold and snowy we stay in way more, meaning no expensive dinners out, and if we're not going out we're not changing our clothes as much so less laundry!
Winter makes my life easier :)
au revoir, adieu, ciao, till next time...
