    Hi,

    Yes, please go on and tell us more! That is funny!

    I looked all over the house for my watch and it was where I put it duhh the night stand.

    I know I am getting older, only 53 but my brain left my body.

    Hi,

    I understand when I was sewing my first rag quilt was sewing them wrong and had to keep ripping them out.

    Tried to sew down the binding on my quilt..walking foot started making a horrible noise. I had threaded the needle...NOT THE MACHINE!! Needless to say, there was quite a bird's nest going.

    brain? Me? what brain? Or should I say mind? My mind leaves me on many occasions, I wear my slippers to the car...*#!)... I live in a winter wonderland(I wonder when winter will end). I have been known to look for something, only to sit down and it is right beside me, right where I left it! I don't always remember to do things in the right order, but eventually, I get them done. :-D. I don't go out of the house anymore until daylight, because I have to make sure my socks match. AND YOU THINK YOU HAVE PROBLEMS???? All this, and they even let me be a substitute teacher...Aren't you glad that I am not teaching your kids????

    I went to work the other day and couldn't see a thing. Everything was blurry. I thought my eyes must really be going bad til I realized I had put on my old glasses (two eye exams ago) instead of my new ones. Duh.

    Put my sewing ruler (my fav) in a safe obvious place. Took me 4 days to find it again and right in plain sight. Lost the tv remote about a week ago and still can't find it - hubby broke out new one after 2 days. Put the cat food down for the dog who was whining for food. Need I go on??

    I wear contacts, with one eye corrected for close-up and one for distance (called monovision). I once spent a whole blurry day before I realized I had the contacts in the wrong eyes. Duh! What's so hard about right and left!
