Memory jog

I will make no bones about it - I cannot remember 4 of the birth dates of my six grandchildren.  Katie is the first.  I forget if it is the 16th or 17th of January.  I can remember Karrington's and Reagan's.  They are in July like mine and my son Brian.  The other three I cannot remember either - all of Brian's kids.  I know Holden's is January, William is February (like today, and believe me I wrote it down today!!!), and Delaney is in September.  I really feel awful about that, but when talking to my best friend yesterday, I found she can't remember her grand's birthdays either!!!

SO with that - let's move on. It has been a crowded week again.  Yesterday was PT.  He really worked me.  And alas, I haven't done them today.

And a funny (I guess) story about yesterday.  I was supposed to call the pain doc to let them know how the injections have done. Did that - left the message and then headed out to PT.  I got home and G told me (I THOUGHT!!) that I needed to "call Dora and Dr W's office.  My best friend is named Dora.  We don't talk often, but we are really close friends.  I was afraid something had happened with one of her kids.

So I called Dr W's office back to see what the doc had to say.  Then I called Dora.  She seemed to be a little surprised, but we talked for a while.  She was still at work.  We vowed to get together soon, and went on. She never let on that anything was amiss.

After I got off the phone, G asked who I was talking to.  I replied "Dora - I returned her call."  He said, and THEN I read the note it was Dora AT Dr W's office.  Oops.  What a senior moment.

Today was our church group meeting.  I do enjoy them.  I wish they weren't every week.  I would love them to be once a month, but...  We were listing prayer concerns.  One of our church member succumbed to cancer last week.  She left two cats.  They are looking for someone to adopt them.  Do you know how hard it is to get cats adopted??

Tomorrow we go to the SSB - again.  Things might slow down, but Friday is Community Club (yopee) and Wednesday is Happy Hour.  Friday will also be going grocery shopping in Fredetricksburg.  Perhaps the other days I can just chill!

This has been totally stream of consciousness today.  Probably doesn't make a lot of sense.  Really sorry about that.  BTW - Sally so glad you are back!!!!

LOL - thank you!

Hey, I have those senior moments quite a lot lately. However, for some reason my brothers and I all had good memories on dates. My oldest brother who was developmentally challenged (he passed away in l998, 55 years old); he could tell you what year every car Dad bought, when he traded it in and got another one. He could remember numbers and dates like no one I've ever known!

Okay, so you're not at home now, right? And, you're going to the country club? See, I get confused. :)

I love those senior moments. We just have to laugh and give ourselves permission to be who we are!!! If we can remember!

Birthdays are hard. I even have trouble remembering if my youngest's birthday is on the 26th or 27th because there are so many other birthdays on both days. That's one reason I like my smart phone so much, with it's reminder function.
