    Either. If it is a task, then use 'I keep forgetting about it' or 'I keep forgetting to do it'; or even '[I keep meaning to do it, but] it keeps slipping my mind'. If it is a thing, 'I keep forgetting it'. In either case - this is an idiom I really like - 'I've got a mind like a sieve' ( sieve definition | - if your mind is like one, you can't hold onto an idea for long.)
