I've mentioned in a previous post that where I come from "Omer" is a verb.
"Omering", or remembering to do so, has become much easier for me with the advent of email reminders, iPhone apps - all things not available to me in childhood, where the dreaded threat of "not getting any cheesecake" was the only incentive assistance available.
Nowadays, any time I have access to technology, I'm pretty sure to remember.
That leaves Friday night as the only tough night.
A nice Omer Counter left out on the Shabbos table, is tremendous help. When clearing the table after the meal, you're sure to notice it. Oh, right! That means you'd need to be sticking around and helping clear.... Well - at least some of us won't forget ;)
