Reminders

I forget things very easily.
Example: I walked into a store the other day with my friend and realized or thought of something I needed to tell my brother. Which is strange because he and I don't really talk much - so to randomly think of something I wanted to tell him was important. I didn't have his number so I went to text mom for it. But she was still in church so I figured I'd wait until after.... but not even 10 minutes later I forgot what I was going to tell my brother. I thought and thought and just couldn't remember.....

I say this because I have thought of many a post to write on this strange blog. Creative ideas, thoughtful things, and even just plain random stuff. And then of course I forget. But there are times when I'll write a little note/text and save it in my phone so I'll remember what it is. Although by the time I get around to typing the full post - the original thought isn't there and I have to use a second string one.
I have actually even called and left myself a voicemail before. I don't remember if it was for a post, a message for someone, or something I needed to talk to someone about - but I definitely called myself and left a message so I could remember.

I'd better work on that memory problem of mine before I get too busy, too old, or just too forgetful that it presents a serious problem.
