When I was sick last week, I completely blanked on all of my to-dos for the day. I did call the school and tell them I could not do either of my volunteer stints. And I did let my book club know that I would not make that night (although it was a shame because I really was looking forward to the discussion (Still Alice by Lisa Genova). But I totally blanked on Jax's guitar lesson (only our 3rd week of it so easy enough to do, I guess) and also on the flu shot appointments I had made for Jax, Dex and Cars. And those I just realized yesterday! Thankfully I was able to get new appointments for them for next week (and am assuming I will not be charged for missed appointments since it is only with a nurse and not a doctor?!).
Anyway, I have written the new flu shot appointments in very large letters on my calendar, have put it in my cell phone appointment calendar with a 15 minute reminder. In fact, I think I will put the reminder on every appointment I schedule into my phone calendar from now on. Getting old and forgetful stinks!
