I use Google calendar all the time. I actually do have a very detailed schedule on it that tells me pill times, bed times, etc. Some reminders come up on my phone, others on my computer. It is basically how DH and I tell each other what is going on!

I just thought this was funny!

All of the help we have and we still forget to take our medicine. Just what did people do before all of this helpful technology? ;)

I'm going to be moving in september and will have to remember that trick. I'm renting a room in a house right now so I didn't decide where things go, and every single time I open up the wrong drawer looking for silverware. EVERY TIME!
The kick plate option for the central vac is quite common here--many homes have CV. I don't, but many of my friends have it. I'd never seen it until I moved to Canada. I went with the Roomba instead of CV because of the size of the canister and having to haul it out of the basement to empty it. And, no place to conveniently store that gadzilla length hose.

The house I'm moving into is less than 600 sq ft, so no need for central vac ha ha ha ha.... It's like the size of the living room I'm sitting in right now. The trade off is that it's 10 min out of town, and waterfront property. The shoreline on the property is literally 6 times longer than the house. Unfortunately, the lake it's on has a really bad algae bloom problem, so it's only good for boating and swimming in the spring, but it's still beautiful, and has lots of crappie in it. It's a really popular ice fishing lake, so we might even build a little ice house. That would be a fun project :)
