Lists. I've started making lists. Now to look at them more often.
I spent three or more years writing lists of things to find, like wallet, keys, red jacket, toothpicks, wine opener, a library book... I'd eventually find them but sure enough, the next day I couldn't find them and started another list. Now it's happening to my husband.
And by the way, your scrabble play has NOT been impaired in the least!
