Last weekend, I’m not sure what happened to my brain but I had a serious case of CRS. That’s Can’t Remember Stuff (or another ‘s’ word of your choice).
You see, we had gone to Costco and picked up some new curtains for our bedroom for which we needed a new curtain rod.
Then we went to Home Depot and forgot to pick up a curtain rod.
Then we went to our supermarket and forgot to pick up a curtain rod.
I forgot to write down that we needed a curtain rod on the fridge list so as I cleaned the house I was trying to remember what I was supposed to pick up when we went to Bed Bath and Beyond.
In the end, I fell back on the advice given at a ted talk and made up a story about the items I needed from the store. It ended up like this: Rod needed to pick up a new pillow to get some sleep and a laser to tire the cat out so he could go to bed. The cat hated the laser and slept on his pillow. Because cats tend to be jerks.
I remembered all three items, and the cats really do hate the laser:D
Until next time!
