SENIOR MOMENT!!! LOL

Have any of you seniors had a senior moment lately? lol I thought I was doing really well since getting on medicare. hehe I proved myself wrong twice this week!!! Yikes!!!!

Monday at 2:30 Gary told me to get around and we would go eat in the little town 14 miles east of us. I asked if he wanted me to invite Bud and Hazel to go with us (they are 92 and 95 years old). He said what ever I wanted to do. I told him that I would tell them we would pick them up around 4:30. Gary said make it around 5:00 so he could put the miniature horses up and feed them. I made the statement to him that was good because it would give me a couple of hours. (Shaking my head at this moment!). I got around thinking I had plenty of time. I got up and walked by the microwave and glanced at the clock and it said 4:30!!! I walked back into the dinning room and looked at the clock that I keep track of time with and it said 2:52 !!!! I asked Gary what time it was. He said 4:30. No wonder I have been so tired!!! Wonder how long that clock has been wrong?? I think it was alright about 3 days ago?? I always just look at that clock when getting ready for bed. I don't know why I don't watch the clock on the computer?? The clock needed batteries!! It is a bird clock. Everytime the hour comes up... a bird sings. My mother bought it for me one year for Christmas.


Sunday I wore a vest that I had never worn. It is a tiger strip (dark blonde and black stripe). I bet it has hung in my closet for 1 1/2 years. I wore it to church Sunday. I got a little warm and took it off through the service. When I got ready to put it back on I saw it still had the price tag hanging in the neck! Good thing it wasn't hanging from the arm pit!!

We went to the Assistant Living yesterday. Gary was in a hurry and wanted to get the oil changed in the truck so we had to leave 30 minutes early. I grabbed 2 cassettes, rewound them, and took off. I took 2 older songs that I was sure I knew. "Old Rugged Cross" and "It Is No Secret". I got ready to sing and I forgot the words to Old Rugged Cross!! It does not matter that Gary has retired and doesn't have any place to go... he is always in a hurry!! By the time I get some place I am exhausted from him rushing me. lol

We had a sweet surprise on our mailbox Monday. The lady that gave us Harley (the burro) had left it for us. She lives 3 houses east of us. She had written a note and taped it.


Well, this is hoping that all of you have a wonderful day. I am upset with the lady that did my eye examine. Why can't a person get things done correctly anymore?? lol All of you are in my prayers. God Bless, Janie

Oh Lord, Janie, I've had so many senior moments even before I became a senior. I am known for leaving the house with price tags still on my clothes. My BF worked with me before he retired and would tell me first. Now, I have to wait until someone sees it. I've also worn two different shoes, one black and one brown. They were the same shoe but different colors.

That was so sweet of Harley's old owner to thank you. HUGS

That's funny about the time Janie. You thought you were going to bed on time lol! I bet you were thinking "the days seem endless" lol.

LOL, Janie, I can so relate; my biggest senior moment is going from one room to another and trying to remember why I am in the new room and what I'm lookin for

we had that same bird clock; even changing batteries it stopped making bird sounds for the longest of times and one day it just started again out of the blue; scared me and Koda half to death. When we moved, I sold it for 25 cents at our garage sale, LOL

enjoy your day

betty

LOL Janie. Too funny about the clock. Yeah, no wonder you're a little tired. I've had "senior" moments long before becoming a "senior" :).......

Paula said...

Don't ya just hate to get dressed to go somewhere and then have to stop and have the oil changed or some such thing? John does that all time and it drives me crazy. I like to do those errands seperately.

Martha said...

I think I laughed 10 times when I read this post, too hilarious!! I am 22 but I already have way too many senior moments for my own good... right now I'm having a senior moment because I can't remember any of my senior moments. See? I'm that bad!!

20 years ago I could handle/ juggle 8 things at once in my mind and hands. Now days I do very well if I can manage 3.... LOL. But I love the fact that I can sleep late in bed with my wife and snuggle after working very hard at Chrysler on the assembly line for over 30 years and other places that were hard and dangerous.. not to talk about 2 years in Vietnam. Life is good when God blesses you!
