In a Bit of a Vacation, Sort Of...

I recently had my gallbladder removed and will be out for a bit. Meanwhile, I will try to upload a picture a day, starting tomorrow. Haha. My procrastinating nature gets a hold of me!

Keeping Goals

Look through my notebooks and you will find intricate lists upon lists of thing I have to do. From long term, like learning to ride a bike, to short term, such as paying the electric bill, my goals are barely legible. Recently, though, I have discovered a site that helps me organize some of the tedious things I have to do.

Joe's Goals is a simple, easy to use site that not only organizes my goals but gives me points for items I have completed. Similar to my days in kindergarten and the famous sticker charts, I get a point for running a mile and a negative point if I eat junk food.

The site's free. All you need is an email address, and so far it's had a positive effect on my work. Try it and tell me what you think.

Nope, I'm not pregnant. But I've read enough books on babies to get a degree on child care. Well, maybe not, but I now know the proper method of burping a baby.

My goal is to design a product that will assist new parents in monitoring and soothing newborns while developing structured sleep cycles. This will include temperature control, routine development, auditory and visual stimulation, as well as providing a method of monitoring the child while the caregiver leaves for a few minutes (for example: showering).

Now it's back to creating the presentation due Tuesday! Wish me luck!
