I forgot

I just told Denis we needed to reboot our router, so we both headed downstairs, me to get a drink and him saying let’s talk a minute while down there. A second later he was saying, why did I come down here now? And then, what were we going to talk about?

That reminded me, though who knows if I can retain this long enough to make a post? I’m working on the last page of the next issue of Notes From Toad Hall. I’m going to title it: “Things I had a minute ago and can’t find now. “ Like: Title to the book I was going to write. Or: Cell phone. (I’m always calling it from the land line and running up and down the stairs to locate it. Yesterday it was on the back porch, but my ringtone is a bird call and I thought…oh, well. This is making me short of breath.)

If you want to contribute a list send it along. If you remember to do this soon I might be able to use it.

Tonight I had my first car in the parking lot moment. I just couldn't remember where I parked. I rarely lock it, which makes my husband angry, but I knew I had locked in before I went in the store. The irony of finally locking it and it being stolen was striking me when I saw it at a distance.

My child. Yes that is right. I forgot my daughter in the van as we rushed to the twins soccer game. And yes we were late. It was an "I thought you got her," "no, you were supposed to get her!" Moment. Thankfully we realized it very quickly. Thankfully my parents who were in town visiting, said very little about it.

We have a sticker in our kitchen that says it all: "Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most."
