I think I'm 'losing it'.  So, I'm sitting in Williams fishing out a debit card and a quarter falls on the floor.  "Rats" I think to myself, "I'll get that in a minute" and a lovely young man one table over gets up and returns it to me with a smile.  Two minutes later I do it again and the same young man again gets up and returns the old ladies quarter to her.  I am now beet red with embarrassment.  I get up to leave Williams and button up my coat (with difficulty for some strange reason) .  By the time I get home I realise I have buttoned my coat incorrectly.  I look like a two year old just learning about buttons.  "Look at me, I did it all by myself."  In the car I turn to the husband and say, "I'll just stop by the post box and you can drop that letter in the box that was delivered to us in error yesterday."  "Where is it?" he asks.  Shoot, I forgot to bring it with me.  At the bank I do my weekend update and when I get back home I realise I intended to pay the Visa bill but forgot to bring it with me..indeed...forgot Visa entirely.   Help.

  1. I have days like that. Days when I think, "Is my mind rotting? I have tripped, dropped things, said the wrong thing, forgotten simple tasks all day."

    Then the next day, I'm generally fine.

    Generally.

  2. I have many days like that. Go to the store to buy a specific item, get there and forget what I was supposed by...after paying a bus fare to get there. Put my rent check in my bag to mail and 2 days later find it still sitting in my purse. Lately, I have trouble zipping up my winter jackets. Fingers just don't work so well anymore.

  3. Suck it up, buttercup. All will be well on your next foray. Well, maybe you'll still drop quarters.

  4. Clearly you don't have enough lists, Delores! That's the only way I can remember things anymore. I've been dropping a lot more stuff the last few years as well, so you are not alone. And . . . blog post!! That's the upside to everything :)

  5. You are so not alone. I am appalled at how many times each day I walk purposefully into a room - and cannot remember why.

    1. You just need to re-frame the situation. It's not "all those things in one day," it's "Whew! all that crap out of the way at once; just think how smoothly the next month should go" :)

      Seriously, I've had days like that and I know how it feels. But as long as you're waking up on the right side of the grass, it's all okay.

  7. Oh my goodness. You are blessed to have a partner in crime (well, really someone to reassure you). I have had a few moments like that too.

  8. Start making a checklist of things you need to do each day, make it the night before of course, then check things off as you do them. Of course you have to remember to read the list and carry it with you. I don't know how many times I've been out and left the list at home.
