Say that again…..

I so need to have a notebook which I carry around in my pocket at all times. Every time something is mentioned that has the slightest chance of becoming important then I could write it down. A permanent record to prompt my sieve like memory and stop those say that again moments.

Had a few too many of those over the last few days.

“Dad did you get the glazed cherries for our Christmas Eve treat?”

Say that again!!!!

Dad did you buy the Home Alone 4 dvd for our Christmas Day movie?”

Say that again!!!!

“Dad did you phone school before they broke up to tell them that the Teams password isn’t working?”

Say that again!!!!

Dad did you remember to make a donation to the school charity appeal last Thursday?”

Say that again!!!!

Dad did you phone up XXXXXXX mum to get hold of their address so we can send them a card?”

Say that again!!!!

Dad you haven’t forgotten that we are having Salmon to eat on Christmas Eve?”

Say that again!!!!

“Have we got the sausage rolls, French sticks, onion rings, pineapple rings, Doritos and mango chutney in for our Christmas Eve buffet?”

Say that again!!!!

Dad did you remember that you said that you would send a copy of the family tree to Auntie Xxxx”

Say that again!!!!

Dad did you remember to take the bread out of the oven. It’s been in there for most of the day and it’s looking a bit burnt.

Say that again!!!!

Mr Xxxxxxxxx did you remember to submit form 5a. It needs to be received by the end of this month or the service will stop.

Say that again!!!!

Ok you will need to give your dog these nasal sprays at least once a day. Will your dog sit still to let you do that.”

Say that again!!!!

      1. Hm…well I was thinking Hawklad but it looks like that list is all Gary stuff, so just tell him to keep the reminders coming. I need some myself. Forgot that my propane gas has to be ordered, even though they are supposed to come automatically…result…I’m out of gas. Just as well I don’t cook, but the cats are mad that the fire went out. I have fallback, not freezing.

      1. No, I haven’t. I keep a list in my notebook along with notes and reminders. My biggest trouble with my notebooks is that I make a note, and then the next year when my note actually applies I don’t remember which old notebook it is in. Then I have to start all over and figure out the problem again.

  1. That’s a lot to “repeat”. But you know, you have a lot on your shoulders to take care of and think of. You need to sort out what’s important… and sometimes one of the important things can slip through…

  2. Hawklad is in charge of Cap’n Chaos and his nose, he can also very easily do the shopping list… I’m assuming it’s on an app or website, yes? He can also order the movie. Awww c,mon Superdad, let him help. He’ll feel like a grownup๐Ÿ˜‰

    Too many things to do, and not enough sleep is making our minds mushy! I’ve got a Swiss Cheese memory, and you’ve got a sieve… it’s amazing we’re allowed to do anything without supervision๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
    Oh, and the notebook… it would just get lost ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ’Œ๐Ÿ’Œ๐Ÿ’Œ

      1. I also have a son with a photographic memory who claims it’s a curse. Apparently I’ve not been helpful by asking him to remember and recall number plates of Rs holes who drive recklessly.
