Forget Me Not

I have not forgotten to post here.
Yet, it feels like I have.

I have been so busy with the garden.
Canning tomatoes and salsa and freezing peppers and broccoli and zucchini.

Which reminds me, I have yet to check my zucchini this morning.
I'll wait til the bees are done doing their thing.

I have come to the conclusion that having a good memory can be a curse.
My husband says I have a mind like a steel trap.

Which is nice, except everyone I know seems to have rusty traps.

I did this mail things to 5 people on Facebook and when a friend of mind ( who signed up to do this) got hers she wanted to know why I gave it to her instead of keeping it.

My cousin and I made plans that when she came through Iowa on her way from Arkansas to Minnesota, she'd stop and we'd have lunch.
She never told me when.
But, she mentioned  going on Facebook and I told her to let me know when and she said OK.
Turned out she drove through the next day and never got a hold of me.
Drove back through a few days later, spent the night 30 minutes away and not one word.

Yesterday a friend was supposed to come out and pick up some tomatoes and zucchini.
We talked about it the night before and she never came out.
My daughter said she probably forgot.

Is this stuff really so hard to remember?

From one day to the next?

So, I get a little irritated.
My husband forgets a lot.
My daughter forgets a lot.
Well, she forgets unless it is something in one of her books.

My oldest sister forgets.
The other one too.
My oldest niece forgets all the time too.

The list just goes on and on and on.

And there is me.
I am one that remembers a comment someone made on my blog a year or two ago.


  1. You had me at 'zucchini'. Do you prefer them fried or grilled?

    1. Gorilla Bananas, they are awesome grilled! No comparison. You?

    2. If I'm eating them cooked, grilled is my favourite too!

  2. sorry ruth, it is irritating when people forget! i have a pretty good long term memory---frank has a wonderful memory for numbers, you could tell him your phone number and he's got it for good--i wouldn't be able to probably tell you more than one of the numbers---but frank cannot hardly remember anything from the past!

    1. Lynn, I know people forget sometimes. We all do. My husband remembers movie quotes and football stats, but can't remember something I told him yesterday.

  3. I think that when people "forgot" something important from one day to the next, they must not have really wanted to make it happen. A lot of people throw out plans without really meaning to follow thru. Do you agree, Ruth? There are lots of flaky people in the world.


    1. I do agree, Robyn. The more important, the more people are apt to remember. I don't know why so many people do the things they do.

  4. I know your pain. My wife forgets everything, even important events. I can tell her the same story of my life over and over again and it'll still be like she's hearing it for the first time because she never remembers. Sigh.

    Ah, that song. I'm gonna go watch The Breakfast Club now...

    1. ABFTS,At least she didn't forget the wedding day.

      I think that movie should be mandatory for everyone.


Thanks for commenting.
