It is for me as well. It seems to be flying by. I don't know how it can already be October!

Last week we had a guest for dinner and I wanted to use a certain bread basket. I looked everywhere...the pantry...the hutch..every drawer and cupboard. I couldn't find it anywhere. I had convinced myself that I'd given it to Goodwill last time I made a donation. Yesterday I found it! Sitting right on top of the kitchen counter filled with onions!! I've moved it daily to wipe up after dinner. Silly stupid me.

I do something similar. I'll get something out and set it someplace noticeable so I won't forget where I put it, then after a few days I notice it disappears into its surroundings

This one made me laugh because I've done it sooooooooooooooooo many times. I'll move something and then wonder where I put it. I thought it was just me that did that. Too hysterical.

Well... it's funny today but yesterday it just made me say a series of not so nice words.

now this is really dumb or maybe senile. for the first two years i had thomas, my cat we battled over a glass of water i had on night stand. he would knock it off and i would scold. then i had a duh moment, why not put a water bottle there instead.

oh well, stupid is as stupid does. lol

I do somethng similar but mine is really dumb! I will be looking in the refrigerator or cupboard for something. I will pick something up to look behind it, then after I have looked for a few seconds, I realize it is the thing in my hand!
