Actual Thing That Happened To Me

So we've discussed my memory problems before. At least, I think we have.

Here's a new story for the annals:

Scene: I am in the kitchen, slicing apples for Yaakov's lunch.

[Open drawer.] Hmmm, no plastic sandwich bags left. Lemme go to the cabinet in the laundry room to get another box.

[Walk to laundry room. As I open cabinet, I see the stuff sitting in the washer.]

Oh, whoops, I never switched this laundry before. I'll put it in the dryer now.

[Switch laundry. Turn to leave laundry room.]

[Annoyed.] Geeze, who left this cabinet door open! I could have hurt myself!

[Back in kitchen, faced with Yaakov's apples.]

Hmmm, no plastic sandwich bags left. Lemme go to the cabinet in the laundry - OHHH!!! [Plastic bags. Door left open. It allll comes together. Is it too late for another cup of coffee?]

I can totally relate to the memory loss--spending time on-line is only making it worse :)

Coffee helps EVERYTHING. there is always more time for another cuppa.

But OF COURSE. I can't walk 2 feet in my house without something triggering a reminder of what else needs to be done. Just the walk from the dogs' water bowel to the sink (5 meters)usually sets me off track at least 3 times -- it's a miracle that the dogs haven't died of dehydration by now.
