We have the infamous bag, sack or carton that appears to be full, or at least not empty. The result: I don't put said item(s) on my grocery list, only to come home and find out that I should have bought it, as evidenced by the big bag of small potato chip crumbs, or the shampoo bottle with just a drop in it.
Post-its and white boards are my salvation. I try to make notes to myself, every time I have a thought, and place them where I can see them. I'll write notes to my son right on the fridge whiteboard to remind him of his homework.
Still this is not enough. I must constantly triple check, re-iterate, and forget things to the point where I feel like the mythical person who was condemned to pushing a rock up a mountain, only to have it roll back down, just as it was nearing the summit.
Was I that bad?
