We get up in the morning, at a certain time. We leave for work, at a certain time. You eat at a certain time, meet your friends at a certain time in other words most of our life is scheduled according to a certain time! I have a total of 11 timepieces in my home, and car. How many timepieces to you have in your life?

Home, Office , Literature and Extra these are my working units. Whenever I start work I dont thing about meal, friends and other such things which could cause me to drag out of my rotine work. I call certain time as breaking hour, the hour which disturbs my routine work, or the work which turns me to itself, I call it breaking work. I face the breaking hours and breaking work and then I try to make me bring on track of my routine work which is endless.

Dear jillhill, We have in our house 7 timepieces. All except one, will show 15 minutes past. In order to for me to be in the office in time I keep it like that. I do agree it is self-cheating but upon seeing the time, I am really spurred action. In my heart I knew the time pieces show 15 minutes past.

I don't live by the time. I have a different sort of life. I go to bed when I want, get up when I want, work when I want (but I have a LOT of work to do) etc. However, we have clocks everywhere. Every appliance has one (microwave, DVD, DVR, computers etc.). My husband and I both have alarm clocks as do each of my two kids. There are clocks in the living room and kitchen. All of our cell phones have clocks. The cars have clocks. And if we add in watches...yikes. I can't even count how many and, even though I am not on a schedule like most, I look at the time constantly. Weird. I like to know what time it is ALL the time.

I think we all do! LOL:) I forgot to count the cell phone! I guess we look at our clocks so much we just forget that we have so many! THanks for the response.
