More Damage

    On Christmas Eve, I broke the universal remote.  We had to run the dvd player manually.  I had a moment asking Carol if I should stop playing dvds.  She said no.
    I forgot to mention another friend Barbara has a standing date taking me to my hair cut, important for my sanity.  Also Kathy is doing pharmacy runs for me.  Very helpful,
    The present moment is cozy.

More Memory Issues

    Since Carol sensitized me to my memory issues, I asked her to start paying my bills, and keep track of things like tax documents I don’t want to lose.  I am lucky to have a partner I trust who is willing to do that.
    Also, another friend Nancy has started having a standing date to go to the gym with me.  She responded to my wish list on the web site Alice set up.  I thought the web site would let me know when I had a message.  It didn’t, but Alice noticed and passed it along.  The combination of the formal and informal process worked.
    The present moment is surprisingly sunny.

    I have been having some unpleasant side effects with a supplement I was taking, creatine, so I stopped it.  That happens to be the one I have to drink a lot of water for.  It’s a relief not to worry that I will forget to drink enough water with my memory issues.  Nice to just drink when I am thirsty
   The present moment is peppermint flavored.

Memory Problems

Carol tells me she is observing some memory problems, such as leaving the front door unlocked, and the basement door completely open after letting Pearl out.  I had my credit card phished by a phone call that sounded like my company but wasn’t.  I had to cancel that card and get a new one.  I had been paying my bill online.  I am afraid I would pay on the cancelled one.  I asked Carol to do that as well as write out the few checks I still do by hand.  She said she would, which will be more work for her.  I sure am lucky to have her help.

The present moment is cloudy.
