I could be losing my mind, or maybe it's just the holiday season, but I'm forgetting things. A LOT lately.
Today, I went out to a specific store during my lunch hour today to get six things. I was happy that I would only have to go to this store and I'd be "done" shopping. I hunted around the store and although I didn't find the exact things I've been looking for, I found a few things that will do quite nicely. I waited in line, and finally made it to one of the few cashiers in the store. All of them seemed peeved that there were so many customers in the store. Lovely attitude.
I was nearly all the way back to work when I realized I'd just bought five things -- not six.
Wednesday, after dropping the girls off at school, I had to buzz back home and pick up a blazer to go over the oxford shirt I was wearing. It is usually cold at the office, and I didn't want to feel like a total slob.
Tuesday, after dropping the girls off at school, I had to buzz back home and pick up my winter boots. In spite of never forgetting the fact that there was a winter storm on the way, I'd forgotten my winter boots.
When Buddy and I arrived at his school, he wanted to change from his winter boots into his shoes. That's when I realized I'd forgotten to bring his gym shoes with to school. Luckily, he was happy about wearing his new winter boots all day.
Monday... hmm... now I've forgotten what it was that I forgot on Monday...
And it's contagious... this morning Punkin looked at me pleadingly when we'd just arrived at her school to drop her off "Mom! I've forgotten my homework! Can you *please* go get it?!" Back home I buzzed to get Punkin's homework and drop it off at her school for her.
This is just not good!
I've got lists, and I know where they are and I write things on them daily and cross them off... We've been getting things ready for the morning the night before, and I still forget things.
Tell me it's not just me. You do that too, right? Right? Maybe it's just the holiday season...
What do you do so you don't forget stuff?
