That’s the way I’m feeling tonight. My fitbit stats for today are embarrassing..of course, he is out walking the dog on her third walk of the day…and his! Not only did I not move around today but I ate 3 pieces of peanut butter fudge and a chocolate chip cookie at the auction house tonight. While I’m not really regretting the decision I made at the time, the sugar high now has me irritated. That probably makes no sense at all. I’ve been off the sugar for quite some time – and the way I feel now is exactly why I’ve given it up! While I used to hate the weight I was carrying around and what it was doing to me – now I’m pretty sure I can feel the sugar granules scraping through my vessels. That was a bit dramatic..but I’m so foggy I had to google granules to see how to spell it.
Which leads me directly into old age and forgetfulness. I haven’t driven a vehicle for a couple of weeks…I know…that’s weird…I had to go to the post office today and I needed to use the windshield wipers to get the mist off the windshield and I couldn’t remember how to turn them on. The entire trip to the post office had me RUMINATING on what is wrong with me – OMG – is this the first sign of dementia. I tried to reassure myself. I’m pretty sure that if I was driving down the street and it started raining, I would have done what I always do – by rote – I would have turned on the windshield wipers. But just the fact that I tried to twist the little dial which activated the back wiper instead of clicking up or down on the huge lever that sticks out of the steering column had me questioning my mental health.
This windshield wiper thing had me messed up a few months ago when I couldn’t remember how to uses the delay twisting thing on that huge lever that sticks out of the steering column. The one that has little lines to indicate if you want the wipers to swish fast or slow.
Jenny…if you are reading this – I’m perfectly fine – do not worry for a moment about me babysitting Jax 3 days a week but I think it is time to turn his car seat facing forward so he can help Grandma find her way around!
Until next time?
