I get it. Cable is expensive and you’re tired of paying for stuff that replays over and over on your TV everyday.

We’ve been wanting to get rid of cable for years since it’s become ridiculous in price with no real improvements in broadcasting. After all, there are devices like the Google Chromecast that doesn’t come with a monthly fee to run. You pay the purchase price and you’re ready to start streaming from your mobile device to your TV once you have it connected to the hdmi port on your TV.

Features:

Works with the streaming apps you know and love
Enjoy TV shows, movies, videos, songs, games, sports and more from over 2000 apps like Netflix, YouTube, YouTube TV, and HBO NOW. Find more at g.co/chromecast/

Start streaming with just your voice

Just say what you want to watch from compatible apps and control your TV hands-free, with Chromecast and Google Home working seamlessly together.
“Ok Google, play Stranger Things from Netflix on my living room TV.”

Upgrade your TV for less

Expand your home entertainment without buying a new TV. It’s so affordable you can get one for every TV in the house.

High-speed wireless connectivity

Built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi connects to the Internet through your wireless home network (wireless router required and sold separately).

Compatible with your existing HDTV

Easily connects to high-definition televisions with HDMI connectivity.

**Subscriptions are required with some apps, but the low monthly fee of streaming apps like Hulu and Netflix are still more affordable than cable and there’s always new shows and movies being be added.

Have I told you that we have cable, netflix, hulu and Amazon prime that we subscribe to. Yikes, cable has got to go!

Do you have a google chromecast and do you love it?

Managing the Litter Box While Pregnant

Managing the Litter Box While Pregnant

*This post is brought to you by Litter-Robot, all opinions are my own*

One day, you get the bright idea to get a kitten a couple months before you give birth to your second child not realizing how much effort a kitten requires.

 

It had been almost 16 years since I had a kitten and at that point in my life, it wasn’t difficult to handle since I didn’t have any kids. She was my furbaby. But since that furbaby passed last November, I knew I wanted to get another cat that my children could grow up with as we had a lot of love to give still.

Cats have always been my pet of choice ever since I was a young tot. All you have to do is play with them, pet them, feed/water and change the cat box.

I hate cleaning the litter box. I mean, who really enjoys scooping clumps of cat feces and urine?

One thing I noticed about our new cat is that she ate more than what my 16-year-old chubby cat would eat in a day. This also meant that her urine and poo output was rampant. I would need to clean it a couple of times a day if I didn’t want it becoming too full or smelly, plus, being pregnant on top of that, I was worried about contracting toxoplasmosis while cleaning out the litter box.
