re ---cutting up charge cards that come in the mail-----old habbits are hard to break....there aer many things that confuse me ( obviously) and i prefer not to think about them.... thankfully i have aa few hundred people watching out foir me and the misgtakes i can make== like opening mqail and getting a charge card which had a paper with 2 sides of fine print with it... that shold have been a clue... the fake ones only have big print --fewer words --to grab yir attentiobn quickly and get you to "buy into" whagtever they are selling. so i cut the thing in half and thjrew it in the trash.
immeciately the phone began to wring... you dummy thqt could be your free money ----so dianne went thru the trash and recoveredall teh pieces.. wnd it appears that this is true -- true to form....it seems i can activate it online and use it tibuy things online in spite of teh fact thagt it is in 2 pieces... i dunno... and will wait for linda to come a read teh 2 pages oif fine pring=t... the only oart i really understood was they wil replace teh card for $7.50 -- so i stopped reading and willjust try and buy things with it.... all teh while not giving them any information of mine not readily qavaiolable to the general public. like attaching it to a bank account... oh i can reaad... but painfully slowly== and when it comes to directions , my fabulous short term memory forgets teh first part of a sentance before i get tothe end.
as you age , you (well,me anyway) learn not to trust your memory... like thiws morning.. 4am on teh nose.....i put bentley out to pee, left thedoor opena crack and came bqack to getting coffee. coffee in hand i went to my computer because that is wht yoiudo when youhave a cuppa... there is anotehr phase to aging that regulates your behavior- the size of your bladder is considerably reduced necessatating frequent trips to the loo. as igot up, i realizedi was not tripping over bentley, who is usually right behind my chair. poor bentley must be standing at the front d oor -------but he wasnot.
running thru the possibilities
is he stuck somewhere?- he would never bark, unlike chaos who would let youknow;...
did he come n and the door swing shut... no he is not on any sofa...
is he hiding somewhere bv because a bug chased him in --- i checked the bathroom his place of last resort to hide.
he weighs 150 pounds and is spotted not like looking for a dark brown 10 pound dashound
i went thru a raft of possibilities finally getting to
did i put him out at all... or was that yesterday.???
a gap in teh gate finally explained why he was noit anywhere that i could convenienly look..
so i went back to slightly open front door..
point being --- did i put him out at all?? with a history of memory loss, i think i can safely say i see no signs of "inciorrect memory"
at least yet. plus i feel no pressure to make up something i can not remember.. because... so far... i will eventually remember -- WITH AMAZING DETAILS ---AS SOON As more "stuff" fills teh short term slot and what was short term.. is now long term...
linda is learning not to start conversations with "remember when"
back to construction.....
you cannot get big trucks in teh driveway if everyone parks near teh corners.. doesn't sound likemuch but "normal" peple have no conceptionof houw mu hroom it takes to turn a corner in a 53 foot trailer --- a drag behind trailer sgays pretty much in teh tracks of teh towing vehicle... but those "5th" wheel trailers which are hooked to the bed of teh pickup or towing vehicle,,are 1000% different. i used to do it...... it wqs possible to make a u turn in the area in frot of the barn where pulling foirward made some of the wheels turn backwards.. go figure that out.
i had thought they were coming to do just the water uphill proble,m but turns out the y will do the driveway at the same time. and ...i am to get the estimate this morning.... to do or not to do the alleway of teh barn is the question... the estimate will decide that.
should be an exciting morning around here. i did thnk "sunshine" looked a bit uncomfortabel last night... could be teh stqrt of labor pains.
i will not be wearing my one last hearing aid TODAY - because invRIABLY WHEN LIFE GETS EXCITING, TEHDARN THING STATS THE MUSIC OF " TIME TO REPLQACE TEH BATTERY" --AND IT DOES NOT QUIT !! IT IS VERY DISTRACTING.. IT IS EASIER TO ASK PEOPLE TO TALK LOUDER.
