I hate it when I am so forgetful

I went to the store this morning, and when I got back home, and put everything away, I decided to do my laundry. I have left the clothes in the washer and forgot to put the clothes in the dryer.ni can't believe I did that, and it has happened before. It sure is rough getting old, and I hate that too. I wish I could turn back the clock, but since I can't, I will have to live with it. I left the clothes in the washer since a little afternoon, and it is almost 6;30 pm. I don't know what made me think about it, but I am glad I did, or they might have stayed there all night. I would probably have had to wash them again, and I have other things that need to get washed. I hope that all of you aren't that forgetful, as you would be very lucky.

@Susan2015 That would suck too. I have also looked for my car cars, which were still in the ignition. I do some silly things at times though, and I do laugh at myself, so that is a good thing.

There have been many times when I've forgotten to put the clothes in the dryer & have had to rewash them. Getting old is for the birds

You are so right. It seems the older I get, the more forgetful I become. I keep telling myself I won't forget, but I do forget anyway.

It sure is frustratrating. The clothes are in the dryer, and I hop I don't forget to take them out before I go to bed. I will probably check it in a bit, and see if they are dry.

I did finaly get the laundry done, and folded up, but I have to put them away yet, and I will do that later. I have done that before where I would forget to take them out of the dryer, but this time it was the washer

I have made things on the stove too, and would forget that they were ready to eat, and I would forget to eat them. That is getting pretty bad when I can't remember that I made something on the stove and then forget to eat it. One time I made hamburger helper, and I wondered why it didn't have the hamburger in it, and vcome to find out, I had forgot to put it in.

I haven't got a drier so that wouldn't happen to me. I lost my car keys the other day and eventually found them in the freezer!

It just bothers me when I know I should do something, but in the end, I forget to do it. That has happened more than once, and it sucks. I don't want it to get so bad that I forget more things. I am glad though that I don't forget everyday. I did finally get the laundry done though. I just have to fold them up, and put them away.

@MsTickle It certainly is, when you have to redo it. I need to fold mine up yet and put it away, but atl east it is all washed and dried. I just wish I had remembered that I did the washing in the first place, as i could have got it done sooner. Oh well, I think that my mind was somewhere else instead of what it should have been on.

@JudyEv I think I am going to have to write things down too, since I am so forgetful at times. It is so annoying that is for sure, and I hate it, but as I am getting older, I am getting more forgetful. I guess I have to blame it on something.

I also hate being forgetful. I am usually scolded by my mother when she asked me to do something but I failed to do so. Last time she asked me to tell my sister to fix the television while I was busy doing something. Although I heard her clearly I failed to tell my sister the correct instructions. Instead of fixing the TV, I told her to fix the Refrigerator.

@annierose I can be clumsy too, as if there is something on the floor, then I end up falling over myself, and I sometimes I get.hurt. I do have to be careful when I walk, so it doesn't keep happening.

Maybe you should drink fish oil supplement to sharpen your memory . I think it's that amongst my vitamin supplements that helps me not to be so forgetful . I become forgetful when i am hurrying though . I guess that's natural .

Well, the other night, I put some leftovers on the stove and proceeded to lie down for "just a minute." When I woke up the next morning, my fine cuisine was a crusty mess. Fortunately I had the stove on "low." Does that count?

I have done that before too, and it so frustrating too. It takes me a litle bit to try to remember why I went in there in the first place. I am glad to know though, that others are forgetful too.
