A ground breaker in the RV industry.
My wife has a ‘programmed mind’, routines are easy for her. She does make notes. Evidently those classes in short hand taught her to put a lot in a little space. She has a daily log of our lives. She can tell me exactly where we were and what we ate one or two years ago. She keeps a record in a 1”x2” space on a pocket calendar. She has a file of these. She also makes notes for herself. The girl also has a collection of Church bulletins with sermon notes on them from churches we visit.
Me? I use the computer calendar for several reminders. This monitor flashes up reminders for me to clean filters, ‘Dump Black water’ (empty the RV septic system) and to ‘Change implant batteries.’ I always carry extra batteries in case I miss a reminder.. The implants are unforgiving when I hear the three dings, I know I have 3-4 minutes before I go deaf. Hearing aids gave me more warning.
I have yearly notices: oil all doors, hatches and check the motor home’s batteries for water level. It is good for me, because I have gone three years and not oiled the doors and think it has been 6 months. LOL
Sorta like birthdays at this age, “WHAT? It’s been a year already?”
Yes, I still make to do lists, and yes, some I still kick them down the road.
I know Rick W. uses e-reminders home and work. Do you use them?
I met a lady at the Park library. She asked what authors I liked. I could only think of Clancy from the many I enjoy. She made a note of our lot # on her smart ‘phone’ and said, "I will bring you some." I think she ignores her notes too! (Or wonders what '#28' means! as she stares at her reminders) LOL
