Forget Me Not Again

I did a meme one time that asked "have you ever forgotten something important?"
I had to laugh.
I forget on a regular basis. Today as I was having lunch with a friend, a lady from work came into the room and I immediately remembered I had a lunch date with her. Sorry, I forgot. She was gracious and let me reschedule for next Thursday--hopefully I won't forget...
The busier I am, the more things slip through the gray-matter cracks. When Gregg and Heidi (our former pastor and his wife) had their first child I was on the list to bring them a meal. They had pizza that night because, hey! I forgot.
When they had their next child and saw I was on the list for a meal, they just called the pizza place--they knew me well by then. Sure enough, I forgot.
We all had a laugh over that one.
Yes, I have a palm pilot. Yes I write stuff on the calendar, yes I still forget all kinds of things.
Brain like a rusted steel trap. That's me.

I used to be the kind of person who never forgot anything. Then I began menopause and I turned into the kind of person who has to call myself on the phone and leave a message just so I will remember something.

I can't tell you how often I come home, hit the answering machine button and hear myself telling me not to forget to do something.

And even then, I forget about half the time.

OH....don't make me sad...FORMER pastor and wife.That sounds so weird and I don't like it!
Miss you! And when you come next time to Florida we will have pizza! HA! (Or maybe spaghetti--remember that?)

Yes I do. That was great fun. I was hoping you'd visit today!
I miss you too. Looking forwad to another trip to FL. This time with more time for you! I might even be talked into visiting Disney--oh what am I saying?

Thanks for commenting on my blog.

I have a palm pilot, too. The trick is remembering to put things in it!
