|Was that yesterday, today or tomorrow?|
I passed with flying colors! Yes, I was a little proud but I also know that if I couldn't have done that I wouldn't have ever found my way to the office to begin with. By the way the three words were chair, banana and sunshine.
The reality is there are things I don't remember and never have. For example, I cannot remember my grandchildren's birthdays, may not know what day of the week it is because every day feels like Sunday and do ask some pretty foolish questions. Don't worry. I am just fine. I have always been a little dreamy and forgetful. It is part of my creative personality and I will not change.
But that doesn't alter the way my children see my goofiness. I know that at my age, it is smart to at least appear to be totally in control even if I am not. If I don't, there will be repercussions. You can count on it. I am careful but sometime things just go wrong somehow.
So a couple of weeks ago I sent a message wishing my daughter Happy Birthday...on the wrong day. Then I thought I had the wrong date because I was sure of what day it was. I sent several confusing text messages and finally just gave up. I was so wrong on all counts it was just plain embarrassing. She said it was funny but I suspect that she is wondering about me.
Then today I called that same daughter to ask about my granddaughter's birthday dinner tonight (Tuesday May 6). My granddaughter's birthday is May 7 which is tomorrow (I know now because I just looked it up.) Tuesday is not May 7 as I had thought. Wednesday is in fact May 7! I know, it is all very confusing so you can see how I might not get it right. You do understand don't you or am I just nuts?
My family will be coming soon with a test of some sort...I hope it doesn't involve calendars and birthdays because if it does, my next blog will be written with a caregiver looking over my shoulder. I might add that I suspect I will be getting a calendar for Mother's Day...I do not have even one in this house!
I'm just saying!
