I totally agree with Anna's comment about making a packing list.
My problem right now is what I'm going to forget to put on the list.
Or worse. The other day I made a list, then forgot the list!
My short term memory has taken a decided turn for the worse. Fortunately I haven't forgotton a child anywhere yet. But it could happen.
I am forgetting names of people. What movie I watched last night. Who was in the movie I watched last night. What I walked into the room to get. Why I opened the fridge while making dinner.
My current favorite saying is "I'm such an idiot."
