I forgot to tell on myself!
I went out Monday afternoon to help Sam put up plywood around the inside of his shop. He's putting it up to keep from snagging the insulation and eventually making a mess of the walls in his shop. I held two or three sheets while he screwed them in place. Since he'd been out most of the afternoon, he called it quits and I came on in the house, cleaned up and changed clothes. I looked at my watch. 5 o'clock and remembered the Friends of the Library meeting at 5:30. So I called Sam (aren't cell phones great?!) to let him know where I was going.
I ran by McDonald's for one of their large $1 diet Dr. Peppers. As I approached the library...there's not a single car. I pulled up and the lights are off inside. After checking my date calendar and my cell phone, I called the librarian. (Earlene and I have known each other since fifth grade. I consider her my best friend.)
At the last meeting, the president announced that she'd be out-of-town. Everyone voted to put the meeting off for a week since nothing was scheduled.
Okay. I had my DDP so it wasn't a dry run to town. BUT...did I sleep during that part of the meeting?
After I got home and Sam made it in the house, he looked at me quizically since I'd been gone only 30 minutes. I told him...and also mentioned that I didn't have a clue as to why I forgot. In a bit, he asked when the last meeting was. DUH...a month ago. Sam looked at me...WHAT DATE? When I told him, he smiled. I wasn't at that meeting. We had returned from Mt. View late that afternoon. HALLELUJAH! You can't forget something you don't know! Onset of Alzheimer's postponed for another 24 hours.
