GPS Nanny for Adults

A couple of weeks ago I got to experience my DIL's new GPS. Man, that is SO cool!! It very calmly says things like "turn right in 1 mile". If you screw up it doesn't shout "what are you, stupid?? Didn't you hear me say turn right??" It just says (in that same calm voice) "Recalculating..." LOVE it!!

I'm thinking that somebody should invent a GPS for doing housework, for the times we may not be sure just where to start. I have a lot of things I'd like to get accomplished this weekend, and so far I've only done a few of them. If I had a GPS Nanny, she could guide me along (as one would a child), encourage me to stay on task, and reward me periodically. :-)

She could say something like "Now let's fold the laundry that's in the dryer... very good! I'm so proud of you!" After a few tasks are accomplished she could enthusiastically trill "Time for a break! Go straight down the hall and turn right. Get your scrapping supplies..." You get the picture. (scrapbooking, picture, heh heh)

Now, we just need someone to design my invention. I think my son could do it. He's talented & cool -- just what one would need to be to make something so snazzy! :-)
