|I've got a little list....

"Went to bed too late; got up too early" seems to be the theme in my flist today. Me, too. I went to bed at an okay hour, but could not sleep so got up for a little while to try and reset, then still woke up after only 6 hours.|
One of the things keeping me awake was, as I explained to Ferrett last night, my need for a "rewards sticker" application. Not a To Do list as such - I have lists for work deadlines and project goals. What I want is something that lets me list all the things I want to get done during each day - i.e., exercise, read, sew - and allows me to check them off and, ideally, if I complete all those tasks for the day then rewards me with a happy song or pictures of puppies or some other minor reward.
I found some iPhone apps that accomplish some of that. Most of them are designed for small children and reward gold stars. I'm not sure what this says about me.
Actually, that's a lie. I'm completely sure what that says about me.
Anyway, moving out of the kids' apps and into the more adult ones, I found something that allows me to make said lists. But ticking off the items is the only reward, and it only allows for scheduling activities either daily or weekly, not MWF or any other combination.
Still, it's something. And maybe it will help me on those days like yesterday when I wanted to do something but was just not quite motivated enough to get started. And maybe maybe someday there will be an app that rewards me with flying unicorns dancing to sappy music. Or something.
Excuse me now. I have a list to accomplish.
Edit: Found a better iPhone application. Now happy. Still no puppy pictures, but one can't have everything.
