You know you are loosing it when you ask where your cell phone is while talking on it, or you mistake a kitchen cabinet for the refrigerator when you are putting away milk. You also know you are loosing it when you put something away for safe keeping then can’t find it when you need it. (This is true stuff here! I’ve done all of these.)
You know you are loosing it when you walk around the house for 10 minutes looking for your glasses only to discover they are exactly where you left them…on the top of your head. Honestly, I get so used to having them up there sometime, I don’t feel them after a while. And sometimes, when they aren’t up there I think they are and reach for them.
I used to do the same with my classroom keys when I was teaching. No, I didn’t wear them on my head; I’d wear them on a lanyard around my neck. I would on occasion find myself teaching and keeping 35 kids in line, while looking for my keys to open my classroom closet only for one of my students to say to me, “Mrs. Cauler, they are hanging around your neck.” Invariably, the class would erupt in laughter, and so would I. You just have to learn to laugh at yourself!
I think the root cause for having these kinds of memory lapses is having children and a husband! They are also the reason for gray hair and wrinkles. A colleague once told me of the time she asked a 97 year-old nun in Colorado Springs her secret to such beautiful and wrinkle free skin. Sister’s response was, “I’ve never been married, and I’ve never had kids.”
You know your husband is loosing it when he can’t figure out why his socks are too tight and you have to tell him he inadvertently pulled a pair of your socks out of the laundry basket; not his.
Here’s my card for today. I used the Sheltering Tree stamp set by Stampin’ Up!
