Where oh where?

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

It's not that I am getting older. I am 58 but about umm 42 in my mind. My body IS getting there! All my summer pants are not staying up even though I am about 2 lbs heavier than last year at this time. Last night at water aerobics we ended up just having free swim. I rarely swim anymore but gave it a try. I swam with so much less effort than I can remember in the last 20 years. Woohoo!!

All that aside, my mind played a trick on me once again. I put something down somewhere and cannot for the life of me (where did that expression come from?) find it. I know it's in the house. It's not that I particularly need it but it baffles me. I went from point A to point B and back. It made me remember odd places I found things. Thought I lost my purse years ago. Went to the point of thinking maybe it flew off the roof of my car.. searched along the highway in the snow for it. I finally gave up with that, replaced everything and found it 2 weeks later on the shoulder of my coat hung up. Blame it on the shoulder pads! I was grateful though. The other absurd place I found something I lost was in the linen closet. That's not where people usually put their hairbrushes?

    Haha...I would be lost without all my lists, but, boy, are they disorganized! I can't win. Oh, if you find my reading glasses, give me a holler... emoticon

    Great job with the swimming! That is such an awesome exercise to do! I love to be in the water!

I forget where I put stuff too. I am younger than you, but still do it. I think it is just because our minds are so full of things to think about and do, we forget the little things - like where did I put my keys this time!?!
