[at-l] Re: Schedules

I also had parents who wanted to know when I would be where, but I found 
planning more than a week or two in advance to be impossible.  
(Exception: I planned the last 3 weeks of my 11 week trip at once.)

Mom and Dad always knew the next time and place to expect a phone call.  
I wonder if they noticed that I ALWAYS, ALWAYS did the following:

[on phone to parents]:  I think the next phone will be in (insert 
place).  I should be there on (insert day).  But it's very hard to 
schedule and you have to promise not to worry if I'm not there until 
(insert day + 1).

Then I never (luckily) had to use my "extra day before the parents 
are allowed to worry."
