How different this is compared to 50 years ago

Do you ever stop and think about how different our lives are compared to those of our grandmothers at our same ages? This morning, I:

  • Made coffee using the automatic coffee brewer in under a minute at the push of a button
  • Have lunch (bbq pork for sandwiches) warming in the slow cooker at the turn of a knob
  • Have beans for dinner (chili) boiling on the electric stove at the touch of a button
  • Have the SpotBot cleaning set in stains in the carpet with the touch of a button
  • Have the robot vacuum sweeping the floor at the touch of a button
  • Have all the dirty dishes being washed in the dishwasher with minimal work on my part
  • Have the dirty clothes being washed and dried in the washer and dryer by tossing in the clothes and turning the knobs
  • Have my favorite music playing by simply telling Alexa to turn it on
  • Ordered and shipped a birthday gift for my niece using Amazon

Doing all of those things would have taken several hours just 50 years ago! The advances made in tools and appliances to help us keep house are truly astonishing if you think about it!
