Fuzzy

Fear is a feeling that has been my companion for a long long time, along with worry.  I come from a long line of worriers and anxious folk.  This is just one conversation I had with myself just the other morning.  Today I can just laugh about it. I think this is a common scene among Baby Boomers.

Oh gosh, I think to myself as I'm gripping the wheel at 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock on my drive into school.   I've got to write that Thank-You note. Wait.  Did I write that note and give it him already?  Or... did I just think about it? Nah, I wrote it and gave it to him.  I think.  Wait.  What would the parents think if they received two thank-you's?  They'd understand.  They're busy people.  No, I can't let anyone know.  Sometimes, I think...it's hard.  I'm losing my memory. I worry about early onset, you know.  I used to be able to remember everything. Things are just a little fuzzy.

This sounds so familiar! I have similar conversations with myself. I'm glad to know I'm not alone!

one thing at a time, one thing at a time. do one thing really well, and then move to the next. maybe it'll make your next Slice of Life "sharper" :)

I hate it when that happens. You are not alone. Awesome picture! I love the fog rising over the water.

I use Evernote and GTasks to help me keep things straight. I find that if I don't write everything down I forget so much.
