Old Age

Some people will age gracefully, some will not. What I am not sure about is how my mind is going to age. It seems after I turned 40 things started to go down hill. I started putting the jelly in the cupboard and the peanut butter in the fridge. I started wondering why I came into a room and what it was I needed. I have found myself in the shower wondering if I have washed my hair. Just yesterday I caught myself trying to use shower gel as shampoo.
I have found its best to write things down as they fall out of my head as soon as I leave a room.
Sometimes I think someone is stealing my stuff. My glasses go missing, my slippers get moved, and someone is constantly moving my stuff to different places in my room. No one in my family will admit to these acts, but I think they are trying to drive me crazy.
The only thing I can think to do is wear a lanyard with a notebook and a pencil attached to it along with a note that has my name, phone number and address on it. If I get lost someone is bound to return me to my rightful owner.

  1. This is not from aging, this is from parenthood. Someone told me that the brain cells start working again once the kids are gone. This is just a theory though.
