I need a memory upgrade!

December 14, 2010

I wish I could buy more memory, like you do for a computer, and install it in my brain.  Cause boy!  I sure could use some!

For example, yesterday I totally forgot about any post for Rural Ramblings.  Never even crossed my mind.

And I usually fix The Farmer’s lunch the night before for him to take to work the next day.  Well, last night … you guessed it!  I totally forgot it.  Once again, never crossed my mind.  Not even a “I’ll do it later” then forgot, just flat out never even thought about it.

Then this morning I noticed a big form in a stack of mail that I need to fill out for a family member.  It needs done by December 17th.  Oh yeah, that’s THIS Friday!

I’m sure it’s the cold weather.  My brain cells are in stasis, temporarily frozen.  Yeah… that’s it.  It’s like our pond…

Almost Frozen Over Pond

See how it’s almost totally frozen over?  But there’s one little bit in the lower right hand side of the picture where you can see it’s still ice-free.  The reason that part doesn’t freeze so easily is because the spring comes out there and keeps the water moving a little bit.

My brain is like that pond.  Mostly frozen over, except for one little section that keeps moving because it HAS to keep working so I eat and sleep and move and all that stuff.

So that’s why I’m so forgetful lately.
That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.
