swiss cheese

so I have been forgetting things lately. too many things. little things, such as whether or not I locked my car or what time I said I'd meet a friend out. and not-so-little things, like a meeting I completely spaced yesterday.

the little things I can deal with, although continuing to have to check my car twice to be sure it is locked could get old quickly. the bigger ones could be a problem. luckily the meeting was postponed. but they called to tell me that fact right about the time I should have been halfway there, yet I was still sitting at my desk. oops.

I'm going to try to be better at remembering things, before this swiss cheese memory of mine loses me a friend or gets me fired. there's just so much rattling around in my little brain these days that some of the information is bound to get lost. speaking of, anyone see where I put my car keys?

I end up building ahabit and if I deviate I pay the price. My keys go in the same place when I walk in the door or else I figure I've lost them.

I'd like to say that I forget stuff like that all the time, but the truth is, my lapses in memory are sporadic at best. And no, I'm not bragging. I would like to be able to forget stuff sometimes.
