Have you ever been shopping and come home to find that you have forgotten to buy something, more often than not, the item that ws the whole reason for the shopping trip in the first place. This happened to me yesterday and it's not the first time. In fact, though I am very organised and often write lists, I still manage to forget things. I forget the list, I miss something off the list, I get it ready to pack (for holiday) but forget to put it in my bag. Is it just part of the human condition that we are unable to remember everything?
I'm tempted to say that it's because there is so much going on in my mind all the time, that you cannot possibly expect me to remember what I was thinking of in the first place but, though this has every possibility, I believe it's more likely down to laziness. I am often too lazy to actual write the list or organize my desk so I can find the list once it's written and so I bring it on myself. It is my hope that one day I'll be able to remember everything (afterall, I've never forgotten to pack the same thing twice so in theory I'll run out of things to forget soon) but perhaps I am just asking too much of myself.
dude! i am such a forgetter. it's sad. i've started to take pictures of lists on the computer or whiteboard. i always have my phone with me.
I am always doing this! Don't worry, Bethany, you are not alone.
