Things I love

I try not to be in love with too many "things".  Afterall, things are just things, right?  Well, every once in a while there comes around a thing that I can't help but be in LOVE with.  This is one such thing:





That's right.  It's a remote starter for my suburban.  This is one of my most prized possessions, seriously.  Here's how it works; we make sure to turn the a/c all the way up when we get out of the car.  When we are about ready to get in the car, we turn it on from wherever we are (it works from way far, so it's GREAT when out shopping!!) and the doors lock, the car turns on and the a/c starts cooling things down.  By the time we get into the car, it's nice and cool--LOVELY!!  I can't tell you how spoiled I am by this little thing!  It makes living in the hot desert BEARABLE!  AND, and and, that's not all.  There is a button on it that I can push when I'm in the car and it allows me to remove the key and the car stays on.  So, if my kids are in the car and i need to run in somewhere  (now--before you call the police on me, I only do this if my big kids are there, too.  I figure if they can babysit at home, they can babysit in the car for a few minutes), I can leave the car running and the doors locked.  That way, they can stay nice and cool, the doors are locked, and if anyone tries to open the doors, the remote beeps at me and lets me know and the alarm goes off.  The car will also turn off if someone tries to put it into gear so it can't be stolen or driven if there is no key in the ignition.
Oh, how I love this little gadget.  Do you have any gadget or "thing" you NEVER want to be without?

How awesome would that be! Is that something it came with or an aftermarket product? I would be interested in something like that here in az

We got it when we bought our suburban but it didn't come with it. We got it at a place called Kar Tunes in Mesa. Sooo worth it!

Ya, totally need that. Right now I would have to say I'm addicted to my phone. I do everything on it. Like right now, I'm writing this comment on it.
