Mom's Grocery List she left for me 3 days ago
Oblivious: adjective 
not aware of or not concerned about what is happening around one.

  Let's just say that my parents left Monday afternoon and it is now Thursday evening. The picture above is what I found 15 minutes ago on the front of my fridge. I think I can accurately say that the above definition describes me in a nut shell! Alexis says, "Mom, I saw it on Monday when we got home. I even told you that Nana left a grocery list. Didn't you notice it?" Umm, no...

  I never keep a list. My mom keeps one on the side of her fridge and when she runs out of something or knows she is going to need a specific item, she puts it on. This is a very simple and smart idea. My brain just doesn't want to take hold of the freedom that comes with not scrambling to make a list 30 minutes before I'm heading to the store. I just forget the list is there. My brain doesn't organize. It's not that I don't want to, I just can't. No matter what I do, I always go back to being a scatter brain when it comes to anything to do with organization. It works for about a week to maybe a month tops then something throws a snag into it and it snowballs down hill from there.  It drives me crazy! I will just have to continue to pray and ask the Lord to give me this piece that is missing from me!
