After the experience of being swallowed by my email yesterday and in thrall to my calendar this morning, I have come up with a plan:
Todoist is my favorite organizing list app. It lets me have repeat events, which is key. Because I want to schedule things like: am meds, am email check, am look at calendar, blog, pm email check, pm look at calendar, pm meds. And I do not want to have to write those things every day.
I realize this seems excessively... excessive. But otherwise I will either
A) check and recheck and recheck for fear that something has changed
B) think that I have checked already and miss important things
So that is my plan. Daily check email twice, check calendar twice, take meds twice. Then hopefully communications will not be so super highly stressful. Ugh.
I think the lists will be a good thing and a limiting factor instead of an overwhelming factor. If I make sure to treat them that way.
Things I need to add monthly: contact with particular people... umm, other stuff that I forget.
Grateful Crap: asthma medication, although I really would like the hacking 3am cough to cease and desist. I have issued the order and am waiting for the other party to come up with a counter-proposal. Ugh.
did a bunch of organizy stuff
took meds (112+/- mg venlafaxine, 450mg bupropion, 200mg bupropion
will go to band rehearsal unless i am running a fever of 103. which I cannot anticipate will be the case.
