    I'm terrible - I almost forgot DH b-day. I've never done that! But I've been so busy planning ODDs party (same month) and we went to DL and school started. All terrible excuses. I remembered before his actual b-day, but not in enough time for his gifts to arrive. They were delivered a couple days late.

    I am sure I have forgotten a lot of things...…..I forgot to put the garbage out last week but I only had one bag of trash so not that big of a deal

    I forgot my own birthday one year. I forgot my anniversary one year too. I am sure I almost forgot DH's birthday too.

    3 years ago, I forgot my wedding anniversary. I was too consumed with our then-2-month-old son.

    Always. I've always been a little distracted and forgetful, but once I started getting migraines it is so much worse. The migraines scramble my brain, it's awful.

    Not yet, but the older I get the harder it seems to keep track of everything, so just give me a little more time and I am sure I will.

    Walking out the door to head to my nephew's birthday party and I forgot it was his birthday party. I prepared an appetizer, and knew we were going to my SIL's house, but totally forgot it was his birthday. Luckily he's 16 and we just gave him a card with cash, but wow, I couldn't believe I totally forgot why we were going there.

    I have forgotten our anniversary more than once, but I don't feel bad because DH forgets it too!

    Oh yeah - I was supposed to pick up my sister from the auto mechanic on my way to work one day....43 years ago! She dropped off her car for service and since I drive right by the place & she worked 2 blocks from me, it made sense, right? Except it was a few days before my wedding and I had a lot on my mind. I haven’t mentioned it in years so hopefully she’s forgotten.

    A plenty of times. I can still remember that one occasion when I had forgotten to bring my ID card when we were applying for high schools in secondary school. The teacher was pretty disappointed and needless to say, so was I. I wasn't the only one who forgot though. :D

    SO true...I’ve got some pretty elaborate coping strategies in place to make sure I don’t drop the ball, the most important of which is an excellent secretary that always has my back. :hug:

    When DD was about 2yo I was taking her to daycare and forgot until we passed the road we needed to turn to go to her daycare and she asked why we didn't turn. :eek: I had to go about 20 min out of my way to get her to daycare because I missed that turn and was late for work.

    Another time I was supposed to pick up my friend and coworker at the auto mechanic on the way to work. She call me about 8:05 and asked if I had forgotten her. ::yes:: Yep. I had to leave work and pick up her. Now when she needs me to do that I always tell her to text me in the morning as a reminder.

    I’d forget I put something in the oven if I didn’t constantly set timers.
