Some times I wonder if I am getting senile. Have you ever had one of those moments, you know, when you were really forgetful or just plain acting dumb? Well, sometimes I think that I was born that way. Why just a little bit ago, my wife asked me a very simple questions that only needed a “yes” or “no” for an answer. I was putting stamps on a couple of envelopes and just couldn’t seem to be capable of doing or thinking about more than one thing at a time. She had to wait until I was through, then I answered her.
I can remember (yes I still can remember some things) when I could do all sorts of different things at the same time. Multi-tasking was one of my better traits. Now, it seems, just one task is sometimes too hard to handle at one time. Like spreading nutter butter (I don’t use peanut butter, but use almond butter) onto crackers. Sometimes I like to only do half at a time, collect my thoughts, and then finish that huge project. OK, I admit, I am not quite that bad yet, but I am working on it.
During the day, I come up with these really great ideas for my blog. The trouble is, the next morning when I turn on my computer, put the keyboard on my lap, put my fingers on the keys, my mind goes blank. I can’t remember any of those super ideas that I had the day before. I guess I will have to start carrying 3”x5” cards in my pocket. Hey, I already do carry 3”x5” cards in my pocket along with a pen. I just never think to write the ideas down.
OK, I admit, I cheated on this one. After the situation with the stamps and my wife’s question, I got this flash of an idea to use it in this morning’s blog. So to be on the safe side, I went straight to the computer and wrote the first two paragraphs. I figured that doing that would allow me to remember what to write about today. So far, it is working.
Now, I can’t remember anything else I wanted to say.
