I have come to the conclusion that I'm lousy at having a cell phone as a primary phone. We got rid of our landline to save money in light of the impending lay-off, and I'm supposed to be using my cell phone instead, which I normally keep in my purse in case of emergencies. I can't get in the habit of keeping it with me. If I remember to put it on the dresser near where I write, I forget to take it with me when I leave the house, and vice versa. This morning I realized I hadn't seen it in two days, and yes, found it somewhere badly in need of a recharge. This will be a long hard battle.

And now I have to go to the dentist, which is going to eat the rest of the morning.

That's what I feared when we discussed dropping ours. I never can remember where the darn thing is!

Sorry about the dentist.

This is why we haven't dropped our land line... my purse gets a lot of calls on the cell.

I keep my cell phone charger right next to the computer. When I leave the house, it goes in the backpack, which is also near the computer.

My solution was to go to the Japanese paper store and buy a really noisy bell -- my purse makes a distinctive sound when the phone's in there, and I'm used to it, so I realize something is wrong when it's not.

I leave my charger and my cell phone on the counter where I leave my car keys so I won't forget it - and it's close enough to pick up unless I am upstairs.

My habit is to have the charger for my phone on the nightstand next to my glasses. (My phone’s primary job is being a note-taking device, so it’s important to keep within reach. My wife prefers that if I get an idea in the middle of the night, the only light that goes on as I jot it down is that of the phone’s screen...)

It takes a little while to build the habit. I think it's also a function of how many calls you get and make. I really rely on mine.
