    I've done that too, so you are not alone.
    Old family story - I was about four, and had my mother, two brothers and a sister looking for my lost cowboy boots.
    When my mother finally found them - on my feet - I was so mad I hauled off and kicked her in the shins.
    I still lose stuff like that...

    Your eyes aren't on your head?
    Sorry - I can't beat that.

    One morning I poured out an exact teaspoon full of milk, and very carefully, without spilling a drop, put it into the jar of instant coffee.

    In my defence, I hadn't yet had my coffee.

    It's a fact that it's not what you do so much as the order you do things in the order in which you do things.

    I think it is amazing how pre-wired we are when doing stuff we think we are actually actively doing. I drove past the school that I'm supposed to drop my daughter off at simply because I was listening to NPR instead of music, which we usually do. Luckily, I figured it out very quickly and drove back around before my daughter asks, 'What are we doing?'
