The Wife Hat: Remote Wars

Men and their remotes! I swear. They have to have a remote for everything! Which means our pretty coffee tables turn into storage for their ugly silver and black boxes.

Last weekend I wanted to turn on the TV. Little did I know, while I was at this bridal shower, my husband bought a surround sound system. Apparently the 61″ TV isn’t loud enough on its own. Anyway, he buys this system which means … we need another remote! This makes five remotes. For. one. TV.

I lost it.

I turned on the tube with one remote only to change the channels and the volume with another. Then, if I wanted to watch a movie, I would have to use the PS3 video game controller to operate the DVD player. Does that even make sense? So, I screamed in rage challenged my husband to find one universal remote that does it all. As it should be.

He did. And it’s kind of awesome.

The new Logitech Harmony 650 Remote is going to be my new best friend. I have no idea why it has to have a color screen, but I guess that’s a guy thing. As long as it does what these 5 remotes use to do, I’m sold. (thanks babe)
