Getting older

So, as I'm getting older, I leave notes to myself on my computer, so I don't forget things I should do.

Today, a Monday, I got up and didn't turn on my computer until after 2 p.m. I went to the gym and the store and read the end of one book (One Kick--I recommend it, though it is disturbing on may levels) and started another (Grave the characters am not ready to give a recommendation yet...only 100 pages in) and started my weekly wash.

Well, since I didn't turn on my computer in the a.m., I totally forgot a lunch engagement!

I felt like a total aging, senile idiot.

The person I was supposed to eat with had (of course!!!) already emailed and made it sound like it was a good thing I hadn't showed up anyway.

What a generous response to an aging Hippie whose memory isn't what it once was. (Of course, all us Baby Boomers know the line--"if you remember the 60's you weren't really having fun....")

So, we rescheduled lunch. But I feel like an idiot.

But then, I feel like an idiot a lot of the time.

It keeps me humble.

And I'm proud of my humility.

Ponder that.
