Is it just that I’m getting older, or that I have too many things on my mind or . . worse? Doctors and friends who have talked to their doctors tell me that not remembering like we used to is fairly normal but the things they describe as “red flags” . . so far I haven’t experienced those or, if I have, I don’t remember! It’s really not funny and I guess most of us get to a certain age that we fear losing or memory and the dreaded “A” disease.
It seems that the things I tell myself I am going to remember . . I’m looking at this . . I’m saying it over and over in my mind so I will remember. And yet, I don’t!
The last time I worked on my Diamondback socks was almost a week ago and I remember planning my stopping spot so it would be easy to find on the pattern. I thought about making myself a note but decided I could remember. Wrong! Last night I had a chance to work on them again and it took me forever to figure out where I had left off.
There are 8 or 10 different “tiers”. Most tiers are on a separate page and in Knit Companion, I leave my row counter on each page where I last worked . . which is most often the end of that tier. It’s so confusing but I finally figured it out.
In KC, I can leave myself a note but instead, I sent myself an email:
I’ve sent emails to myself, left messages on my answering machine with reminders, along with writing everything down. I’ve told my husband over and over… if it isn’t written down, it doesn’t happen! 🙁
