I've finally gotten an iPhone.
The other afternoon I looked down and the battery was at 82%. My first thought?
"Awesome! I've been really productive today!"
How sad is that? A high battery shows that I haven't been messing with it much, thus I've been busy doing the things I need to get done.
My iPhone battery readout can now act as a productivity meter.
Too much time on Words With Friends or perusing the Interwebs and not only does my battery life drop like a well-oiled cannonball, but so does my ability to check off those super important "To Do" boxes.
"Let's see...54% battery at lunch time? I've wasted half my day today! Whip crackin' time!"
"2pm and my iPhone is at 91%!! (in the words of my consultant husband) I'm practically at Full Utilization!"
I'm not sure how I feel about this. We have a TV in our bedroom and upstairs in our Family Room (where I rarely go during the day) and no cable. This is on purpose. With no TV in our common areas, I accomplish much more. Now I've invited a pocket-sized So-Much-More-Than-A-TV into my life. One I can carry with me EVERYWHERE. It's up to sheer willpower now. There's no Removing The Temptor.

To sum up in ten sentences.:
- Four of the kids are on a summer swim team.
- I have to get up early.
- I'm not an early riser, but have always wanted to be.
- Swim team has given me the opportunity to change my sleeping habits.
- "Early to rise" necessitates "early to bed."
- "Early to bed" sucks.
- Swim team = crazy busy.
- Crazy busy = 2.5 hrs a day (Tues-Fri) and 7 hrs every Saturday for 8 weeks.
- Crazy busy sucks.
- The positives of swim team outweigh the sucky parts...just barely.
