My mobile is my constant companion. (That is pretty sad, ain’t it?) The timer and calendar function is constantly in use.
I have to have an alarm for everything.
Everything is a time to remember…
I have an alarm for every single adhan (Muslim call to prayer)…especially for Fajr prayers which is now at around 4am.
I have a 5:30am alarm to wake myself up everyday.
A 5:45am alarm to wake up Rosebud and Blossom for school.
A 6:20am alarm to go outside and wait with Rosebud for her school bus.
A 7:05am alarm to go outside and wait with Daisy for school bus.
12 minutes to fill up the washing machine with water (I have a semi-automatic…hey wait that sounds like a rifle…I am talking about a washing machine).
10 minute intervals for stirring the pot on the stove
30 minutes for the water to boil in the big pot
5 minutes for boiling the rice
I also have a 1:10pm alarm to remind me to go out and wait for Daisy when her bus comes.
I have an alarm for Sunday morning weigh-ins.
A reminder for the Amazing Race on Sunday evenings (which I have to delete now anyway because the current race has ended).
I have reminders for the 7am water delivery guy every Tuesday.
My computer time is even timed.
I also have to schedule time for sewing and crocheting so that I can make sure that I will get some projects done. (Reminder to self: Go and schedule that on my phone).
My list can go on and on.
Without my timer I would be clueless.
Food on the stove would burn.
And my kids would never catch their bus on time.
Some things would never get done!
Absent-minded or old-age forgetful?
Yes, that’s me. I forget all the time (or maybe I am just thinking too much or just in my own little LaLaLand).
I am not sure exactly how long it has been happening that I have been forgetting things quite easily.
But, Alhamdulilah, everything else comes naturally at its own time.
