One more thing to add to my to-do list. I just have to remember to mail the darned things. I was cleaning the desk the other day and found last year's letters. I don't know if I sent cards or not...is it menopause memory or early on-set Alzheimer's?
I realized today I'm not entirely finished my Christmas shopping :-( . A couple of weeks ago, I offered to collect from our group of supervisors for a gift for our boss. I've collected the money...but not bought the gift yet. Fortunately, the gift I plan to buy is available at the business across the street from the office...I just have to remember to go there tomorrow to buy it.
I'm absolutely certain I've forgotten something else, but darned if I can remember what it is. It is such an unsettling feeling, I feel the need to make a list and check it twice.
Gift exchange - with friends and family still to be arranged
Christmas dinner - roast beef this year - as requested by my kids. To go along with the roast will be stove top stuffing...because it wouldn't be Christmas without it. Roast is in the freezer, still have to get the veg. Dessert will be whatever is left of the Christmas baking.
No inspiration there...I guess I'll have to wait until I wake in the night in a panic because I suddenly remember what it is that I think I've forgotten.
Or I can choose to sit back, relax, enjoy the glow of the Christmas lights on the tree and be grateful for crossing off most of the items on my list. Besides if this memory issue is early on-set Alzheimer's in a few months it won't matter because I won't remember that I can't remember. Maybe?
