And That’s Why You Always Leave A Note

I thought I’d squeaked out of chemo with just some swapped homophones and fatigue.

As it turns out, memory issues are only issues if you remember you’ve forgotten stuff.

Today, I noticed this note, stuck next to my home work/sew station.

“Jan 15” was three days ago. And I have absolutely no idea where I was supposed to be.

On the bright side, neither does Mark.
And it’s his writing.

    I don’t know if it will make you feel any better, but that sort of thing happens to me and I have never had chemo! After 52 years, I have some compensating habits, and I often make to to my appointments. And I still have both my arms.

  • I guess I’ll be implementing some compensating habits too.nI love your two-armed-woman comment!

    Weren’t you supposed to buy a toaster oven on Jan. 15? No, wait, that was Bill. No wait, he already bought one. That’s why you always just have to think of the toaster oven and you’ll feel better.

  • Are you sure that isn’t supposed to be a corn-baller?

    Wait til the mental pause! Scary for writers. I forget the word for when you forget the word you want. I am hopeful — this logomnesia ? will pass.

  • Mental-pause started for me last February, thanks to chemo and, now, Tamoxifen.nBut so far so good….

    Suggestion for compensating habit # 1. Become a never-nude, and you will always have pockets for notes. Oh, wait a minute – this note would not be any better in your pocket. . . . nForget sticky notes and use Mark and his Daylite.

    Thanks for the giggle today! Although a serious concern for you, I am glad you can laugh about it.

  • Thanks, Andree. Looking forward to enjoying Saturday evening with you and your family.
