A few months ago I moved in with my sister and her family, and it has been an adjustment and a half. From a lot more shared space to a lot less quiet time, I sometimes just need a little escape. I find myself getting lost in the mundane tasks of taking care of the dishes and pretending like I know what I’m doing around the kitchen. When I finally get myself up and out, I might even go for a bike ride or take a walk to the pool. Playing video games is a great escape for me, but it’s unlikely I’ll be able to play for long until a child shows up in my room to see what I’m doing or to sit in my lap. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
When it comes to getting away… some people go to church, I listen to music. As expected, my phone is loaded with plenty of my favorite tunes. I was beyond ecstatic when I bought a new car with a Bluetooth option, so I can listen to what I want, when I want. However, when I am out and about, my phone’s speakers just don’t overpower the sound of a clanking kitchen and the headphones never seem to stay in quite right when I’m riding a bike or chasing after my niece and nephew. What did I decide to do? Get the new gadgets of course (thank You to Best Buy for the offerings)!
JBL Clip Portable Bluetooth Speaker
With Bluetooth technology, just like my car, I can easily connect this Bluetooth Speaker to my phone and get my tunes on. A nifty aspect of it is that I can clip it on to myself with a carabiner, so it can come with me throughout the house as I’m doing the dishes or vacuuming. I take it for walks in the forest preserve as well, so that I never surprise an unsuspecting skunk with my presence. It’s pretty much like walking around with an old school boom box, except that it’s light, portable, and clips on to you.
JBL Reflect Sport Headphones messaging
These Sport Headphones are very innovative, designed to stay super secure in the ear and to withstand all the physical activities you may come up with (except water activities). I absolutely love the sound quality! The first time I put them in and decided to listen to one of my songs… I heard base I haven’t heard before! The mic is also very sensitive and my friends now can’t tell that I’m on a headset versus holding my phone to my ear. These puppies stayed in during my bike ride, the grocery shopping trip as well as the chase after my niece and nephew! And yes, I do get a break after all those activities.
And just like that, all my music listening needs have been satisfied. Now I can take my tunes with me no matter where I go or what I do. I can enjoy the music all to myself, or share its joys with my lovely family. My secret weapon with the kids is playing “Happy” or “Let it go” … overplayed? Maybe… effective? Definitely!
