I’ve noticed since passing 45 that my memory has been slipping away ever so slowly. I use to be able to remember the entire periodic table…now I’m lucky to remember where I left my car keys. I used to roll my eyes at my mother when she would list off all her children’s names…and the dog…before getting to me…now I understand. So I’ve taken to writing lists…only problem with that is you have to remember where you left the list, remember to take it with you when you leave the house, and be able to remember why you wrote it. What I do now is have a little note-book where I put all my lists…yes, sadly there are more than one list…that way I have them all in one place and it’s easy to take it with me. Haven’t figured out how to remember why I wrote down certain things though. I have found an added bonus to my lists…sometimes there are items on a list so long, they just don’t matter any more.
This has made me wonder if someone else has tricks for remember things. Then I thought, who better to ask than the bloggers…
