BDSM 101: Household Task Management

19 02 2009

One of the responsibilities of a dominant is to keep his (or her) household running smoothly.  There are many tricks to doing this, but I have found a nice (and free) online service called Remember the Milk. To say that it is just another online todo list would be an understatement of its capabilities.  While it has the normal todo capabilities you would find in many todo lists, you can email yourself todos, subscribe to your lists via internet standards, even assign other users of the service tasks.

How I like to use it primarily is to call my girl and say to her, I need to remember this, add it to my list. She then types it up, assigns it to the date I want.  The next morning it is on my iPhone when I check (ok, this part cost money, but only $25/year, a reasonable price I think.  BlackBerry and Windows Mobile support available as well).  I also get SMS messages reminding me of tasks, if I set it up that way and emails too.  Multiple task lists, tagging and locations are also part of the basic service.   And for those of you who use Google‘s services, Remember the Milk has many modules that work well with either iGoogle or Gmail.

Overall I am quite pleased with the service, and I recommend it highly.  The hardest and most important part though is remembering to use it.   Anything will work, but you need to use it every day.

I LOVE lists 🙂 Not that I always follow them (LOL)- but- if something pops in my head, I try to write it down- housework, ideas, places I want to go, remember to dig out the camera, wash the dog, plant a night garden. . . all sorts of things. I also call it ‘planning’, but I need a new word because my plans are rarely solid and I know me enough to know that if I list out 10 things on a ‘plan’, I’m maybe going to do one or two and skim the rest as the day goes on and other things pop up. I also like to utilize my friends in that I send them my lists saying “lookie here” and it helps me to remember. Of course, when they ask ‘did you do’. . I can say know and for the most part feel ok with it (sometimes I know I should have done A when I did B, but whatever, life goes on) 😀 Thanks for the info- I’m going to pass this on to some of my friends 😀
