Our calendar is tacked to the wall still stuck on January.

LOL!
It hit me this year on my 77th birthday. It came as quite a shock.

You're lucky you can remember how old you are. I have to count from my birthdate, which I do know, but math is not my strong suit. I manage to get within a year or two.

I don't know how many of our members realize that if they are on statins, their memory is affected. That is a drug to help control cholesterol. I was going crazy because all of a sudden I found that I couldn't remember the simplest of words. I knew it wasn't me getting into Alzheimers, so what could be the problem. I went into a medical site and looked up all the side effects of all my medications. Only the statin I was on had "loss of memory" listed as a side affect. I also found out what the normal dose was. I was still on the dose for overweight folks. I stopped taking it all together. The next time I had blood work done, my cholesterol was below what was considered normal. I had lost a considerable amount of weight and cut way back on fats.

That was over a year ago. I still am not taking it, yet I am still on high dose for overweight. Maybe someday I will tell my doctor the truth.

I think the one on my fridge is up to March.

I meant Google Calendar, which sends me email reminders that I set.

I've gotten to the point where I only remember my exact age if the number ends in a 5 or zero. Otherwise, it's not so important to me. That means I can remember how old I'll be come this June. :

I can remember how old I am, but not of my kids. I do remember that there are 17 months between my first and second child. And that there are 10 years between the fourth and the fifth one. And I do remember their birth dates and years. What the total is of each, forget it. That is when I draw a blank.

National Arbor Day

Today is National Arbor. So everyone go outside and plant a tree. If that is not possible for you, then go hug a tree and tell it "Thank you!"
