SG the timer thing is a really good idea. I have started using a timer for everything. Heating water for coffee. How long I am going to give myself to do a certain task. It keeps me from wasting too much time daydreaming. Sometimes I forget why I set the alarm if I start daydreaming before I can even stand up. I use my cell phone which has an alarm feature, a timer feature and a calandar feature. I use all three every day to keep me from wasting the whole day. I still waste most of it. What bothers me the most about the timer is that years ago I used to use a timer religiously. I timed everything just like I am doing right now. The silly thing about this is that when it came time to replace my kitchen timer, the price had more than quadrupled in a couple of short years and I did not buy a new one! Then I fell out of the good habit of timing myself.
Has anyone else out there had the misfortune of forgetting a good habit?
I just thought of something else funny. I still won’t pay to buy a new kitchen timer but I paid ten times the price of a new kitchen timer for a new phone. Go figure!REPORT ABUSE
