I left my notebook at work. Again.

This notebook is the bane of my existence, but I refuse to go anywhere without it.

It's a blue notebook, currently covered in flour and the remnants of dough from being dragged in and out of the department. I use it for many things, not the least of which to keep track of how many baguettes are being used by the deli and to write down difficult to spell things for writing on cakes.

I also use it for jotting down ideas for Kylerian that come to me at work or, more seriously, on my lunch break when writing on what I've started isn't working and I want to outline.

More than once, coworkers have assumed that the bulk of the writing in it happens when I am on shift instead of on lunch, and this is simply not true. However, it still annoys them enough that I fear for my notebook every time I forget it on the table.

Or, like today, when I leave it on the cart that goes to the other store. I REALLY hope someone sees it and grabs it for me, because I don't want to have to drive all the way up to go get it back, but my entire outline is in that thing and I cannot lose it until I type it up (which I had intended to do last night. FML.)

Any tips for keeping better track of where I leave that stupid thing?

  1. I keep a small pocket notebook at work and school with me. That or little leaflets of paper that I always seem to wash
