My hubby bought an Apple watch for me last year at Christmas. I was eager to get it set up so I could track exercise, heart rate, sleep, and so on. It has a feature that caught me by surprise when it sent me a notification to Breathe. Hmmm. The last I knew, if I am alive, I already...

When I loaded the washer with towels and sheets today, I made sure I distributed them evenly in the washer tub, added detergent and softener, put the lid down, then started it.
