I’ve been fairly forgetful over the last few weeks.
Inadvertently forgot our sibling’s birthday and I feel awful about it. Every one of us had all gathered together at our parents beach house and I did not even realize why we were there until I saw the gifts on the table. That was a very awkward afternoon especially when I had explained why I came empty-handed without a gift for our sibling. I played it off as if I was giving her something online, at which point I pulled out our iphone and hastily purchased her a big gift card to her favorite perfume store, then well she was cheerful, I could tell that she realized I had forgotten and did not even feel why I’d been invited to her beach house that day. Ever since that happened I have been trying to be better about not forgetting appointments, arrangements, or any dates that are important to other people! Lately I have just been forgetting about things around the house, especially our air cleaner filters. I have several air cleaners around our beach house and the filters get blocked fairly quickly. They are not cheap either, however one of the filters for instance is $26 when it’s on clearance, and usually $35 when it isn’t. They say that the HEPA filters inside the air cleaners will last up to 6 weeks, however after about 3 to 4 weeks of annually use the filters are dark and blocked with sediment. When I forgot to replace the filter the last time, I had respiratory and sinus troubles, however right after I replaced the air cleaner filter and turned the equipment back on, I feel it’s an immediate improvement in the stuffiness of our nose.
