My New Friend, Echo Alexa

After the whole sleep vs. phone call thing yesterday, I actually overslept AGAIN today. This time, I missed Eric's middle of the night call.  I woke up to a room full of sunlight.  Panic.

I jumped out of bed and grabbed the phone.  I called Eric immediately, brain still foggy.  He was in a meeting but stepped out to make sure I was okay.  My sleepy voice was a dead give-away.

"Amy Lynn," he said sweetly, "did you over sleep?!"

That's when I blew it.

"It's not my fault," I said as though I was an incapable child, "I told Alexa to wake me up but when she did, I must have told her to turn off in my sleep."

Eric laughed.

"Alexa? Alexa is responsible for you now?"

Oh geez.  That did it.  My husband suddenly became a comedian and the entire day has been filled with texts from "Alexa" to Amy.  Ha ha.  He's pretty funny. I'm starting to miss him even more; something I didn't think was possible.

"I miss you," I pouted.

He's assured me Alexa will keep me company until he comes home.

ARRRRGGGHHHHH!

  5. It's those little things though, that keep relationships alive. I love that whole Alexa thing. I bet that teasing won't end when he comes back home, either!!
