Yes sometimes I forget

Friday, April 12, 2013

Sometimes, I walk into a room and stand there looking around, trying to remember why I came into that room. Sometimes I take things out of the oven and forget to turn it off.Sometimes I forget to take my insulin, yes after all the years I have been on it, but I will do my reading go to figure out and fix my food ,an eat and than I can't remember if I took it. Afraid to overdose, I wait three hours and see what my numbers are telling me. Yesterday, my grandson and I went to Walmart, I parked the car, unbuckled my seat belt , started getting out of the car, Tyler reached over said mamaw you forgetting something, he turned off the car and handed me the keys. Afterwards we went to the grocery store, when we came back out I discovered that I had left the keys in the car. Getting older I guess. Like the song says twenty years , twenty years, where have they gone, twenty years, I don't know. Except mine should go my mind where has it gone my mind I don't know. Looking for my mind for I can remember what I need to do today. LOL. Have a great one. emoticon

    Ahhhh, those "senior moments" - LOL. I hate it when these kind of things happen, but I suppose we all have them from time to time.

Hope you're having a great weekend!

    We have to laugh about these things and soldier on. For my mom, for some reason, a number of her "forget's" were related to bras, as in:

-She once put her bra into the freezer by mistake and tore the house apart looking for it
-She checked out of Kmart with a bra she meant to purchase draped over her arm and didn't notice it until she got to the car
-She met the propane gas deliverer in her bra

I live off of lists more now, visual cues (like when I see X, it reminds me to do Y) and asking people to remind me to do things. However it goes, I still plan on enjoying life and laughing all the way to the EXIT.

    I do that too. I sometimes repeat what I'm looking for to myself so I don't forget why I go into a room. My husband uses one of those pill thingys with a space for each day so he doesn't forget any of his doses. Don't know if you could use one too.

    You either have to laugh or cry when these signs of getting older appear. I choose to laugh at myself! Makes me feel better anyway than crying! Hope you have a great weekend! emoticon
