Getting older is weird. As I’m sitting here trying to write a blog for y’all today, I’m staring at a blank screen and am scratching my head. Sometimes there is an obvious topic that I am just burning to write about, but today is not one of those days. Today is one of those days when I am trying to reflect back on the prior day’s events & occurrences to come up with something meaningful.
Here’s the crazy (and slightly scary) part though. I can barely remember what I ate for lunch yesterday let alone come up with anything earth shattering to write about. I know I lived through an entire fruitful day and got a lot accomplished, so why can’t I remember any of it? Is that a sign of getting older? Did I destroy too many brain cells in college partying? Goodness gracious!
So today I’m writing about all the systems I have in place to keep my “old” brain in check. I have to do lists and calendars and email alerts all in place to remind me to do what I need to do. Does everyone else have to take all of these measures, too? I wonder, because I’m really not that old.
At least my song of the day is delightfully jolly and will for sure bring a smile to any reader’s face. “If I Only Had a Brain” is a classic scene from “The Wizard of Oz,” and even though this isn’t my favorite blog topic….the song will forever be wonderful. So enjoy…I’m off to check my calendar!
