I’ve been more and more forgetful lately. My reading glasses & sunglasses disappear and reappear whenever they want. I have no idea where they go. But they do eventually show up but not before causing much annoyance and irritation. I have a couple of reminder apps on my phone. I don’t think I ever used them. The other day, I went to get a new dish towel to wipe the dishes. After I took it out, the laundry had just finished so I put the laundry into the dryer (the linen cabinet and the washing machine are within steps of each other). When I got back to the kitchen, I had no idea where the dish towel went.
I’m grateful that public transit is by my doorsteps. Because I sometimes can’t find my car keys. I have used my spare car keys more than once. And now that I got a new TV and receiver, I have more remote controls than I know what to do with. At least 1 of the 3 will go off on their own. I found one of them on top of the washing machine once. Maybe it went to look for the lost socks.
While I try to laugh this off, this is actually starting to stress me out. I don’t want to end up like my dad in his final years of life.
