Since my wife headed down to Texas for an extended stay, I've been faced with relearning a number of things that people who live alone don't even think about. The one I find most troubling is remembering stuff-- remembering to lock the door, remembering to switch off the iron, remembering to turn off the coffee maker, remembering to turn off the oven and burners on the stove. My wife always catches me, and I've come to depend on that safety net. The worst thing is that I'm too forgetful to develop the neurosis that would have me triple checking this stuff. Seriously, this is going to send me home from work in the middle of the day in a panic.
