Aircraft was on an extended delay. When I completed door removal and lubed xfeed valve we released boarding then while I was inspecting area, making sure everything secured, I found t-bolt loose (refer log X). So now we had passenger loaded, ramp was wanting to know if they could load the pits. Gate agents was wanting how much longer the delay was going to be. Pilot wanting to know what to tell the passenger. Line maintenance and our supervisor was wanting advise times. And I was waiting for inspection, so we could retorque t-bolt. When we completed everything I cleared write-up (refer log X). I forgot to create a deferral for lubing xfeed valve on a daily basis. (Refer log Y) when I was doing a walkaround inspection on aircraft X I noticed the right main landing gear center and inner door slip marks on the strut were moved. (Refer log X). I called maintenance control for a cdl (confign deviation list) which they authority/authorized 32-10C. As per cdl 32-10C I removed the main landing gear doors and lubed fuel xfeed valve shaft. Then when I was making sure everything in the area was secured, I noticed the t-bolt was loose (refer log Y). When inspector X arrived we torqued bolt per maintenance manual 32-11-42 3D(1). I cleared log pages then through all the confusion refer statement above I forgot to create a deferral, remove and reapply grease daily on xfeed valve shaft.
