Based on multiple "Did we remember to...?" situations, I highly recommend creating a checklist, with the last item being "Close the garage door".

I went away for a week once, luckily it was summertime and just a small upstairs part of a duplex. I had left the front door open! When I got back I detected that there had been an intruder. This was based on the droppings on the headreast of my easy chair. But the intruder has flown the coup before I arrived home. Otherwise, everything was in perfect order!

Didn't you bring the checklist? No, I thought you had it...
