Space cadet, the sequel

So yesterday, Friday, I left work just after 5. I was going to stop at the bank, then go to Isle City Hall to see Senate candidate Jack Nelson-Pallmeyer, then go to Mugg’s in Wahkon to meet the Messenger crew before heading home. I went to the bank, went to Mugg’s, went home, woke up this morning at 6:30 thinking “Oh @#$%&. I’m hopeless. I’m absolutely hopeless.”

So this morning I’m figuring out how to keep a calendar and set alarms on my cellphone, my iPod and my computer. I guess I have to set multiple alarms for myself.

What I really need is one of those shock collars they use to keep dogs in the yard. I could program it with my calendar, and every time I have an appointment, it would shock me lightly, maybe 15 minutes before. As it gets closer to the time, the shock gets increasingly stronger.

There would have to be no way to turn it off, and it would need to be programmable by other people, because I would not want to program it myself.

  1. Oh Man, do I appreciate reading your Space Cadet angst.You know how they say women are so great at multi-tasking? Well, my multi-tasking skills took a turn for the worse after I had children. I would get side-tracked by their needs and forget what I was doing before they needed me. I would find half finished projects around the house at the end of the day. Someone told me I had child induced ADD.I’m getting better, I think, now that the kids are older. I still plan for things that I really look forward too, like the library book club and will get a call from Kathy the next day wondering if I can return the book…hint you missed it again. My problem is spacing out days and time now, not household projects.But hey, life is interesting, at least I’m not bored!
