I make lists then lose them and try desperately in the store to envision that lost list. Most of the time I get lucky and remember what was on the list. Other times I duplicate a list even if I've filled it previously. This isn't unusual for me and its that very trait that saves me from boredom. I can hide my own Easter Eggs.
With all the confusion around here with extra guests, catering meals and patient transport I have a little more trouble remembering what I NEED to do or what to purchase.
We ran out of crackers. It's cracker season. I asked Hubby to pick up crackers then I promptly forgot I asked. I did a grocery run and forgot I had asked for the crackers. So I picked some up at the first display and then forgot and went to the cracker isle and got more crackers!
I have crackers, three boxes ahead. I have my antique cracker canister (purchased when I was pregnant with first child now 42...the only thing I could eat) full.
As I was hiding the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and Sponge Bob Gummies inside Pepe Le Pew's cookie jar I discovered Christmas Candy Canes!
Have you noticed my pattern? Good healthy snacks are left in plain view while the not so healthy snacks are hidden.
I'm on to something here. I think I subconsciously hide the sweet stuff where I won't be tempted. Maybe I'll look around to prove that theory. Yep, just found a sack of M&Ms in my desk drawer.
If I wait a minute or two, I'll forget that and have a nice surprise later this week.
