If you see my memory around, tell it to come home!

Today would have been my daddy's 90th birthday!  I really can't imagine daddy being 90...when he died at 76, he was working 6 days a week and church on Sunday.  I'm thankful we didn't have to watch him slow down!

He was a great daddy and I will think of him often today.


Now this is a true story....sad, but very,very true.  Have you ever felt like this?

Well, apparently, my mind is going and going fast.

I usually have lunch at home every day, except for the occasional lunch out with a friend.  My husband, on the other hand, goes out to lunch at least three days a week.  I'm always asking him where he went to lunch, then lamenting about how I had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich at home, alone.

Last night when dear, patient husband got home and we were eating supper, I said, so, where did you have lunch today? 

He grinned, so immediately I thought oh, another lunch out!

Then, I said rather indignantly oh, it must have been at a good place, so where???

Then he started laughing out loud and I got really mad.  He says, honey, when you asked, it was funny, but when you insisted it was really funny!

Rather sheepishly I suddenly remembered!  We had lunch at his mother's house.........together.

Should I be worried now???

You don't think you lead a full busy life, but you must, that is why you forgot!!!!!
How funny!!!!!

LOL. That sounds like something I might say/do... especially when my schedule is far too full and busy.

Thinking of you today as you remember your daddy.

Needled Mom said...

Yep....it's time to worry!!!! ;)

I can so relate to this! My husband laughs at me too...how can I forget something that he told me an hour or so ago? This NO ESTROGEN brain is not what it used to be.
Daddy's are wonderful...I miss mine too.

Oh, I love it!! Makes me feel so much better. You're way younger than I am. Soon you'll be able to hide your own Easter eggs then everything is new whether it is or not! Enjoy.

OMG I laughed so hard. Yes, be very worried....:)
My husband went on a trip yesterday. I had gone through some after Christmas toys I bought because he was going to see our nephews in Texas. He wasn't sure if he wanted to bring them what I had or buy something new. I said yes or no, just give me an answer.
So I went to put something on his desk and I saw the toys sitting there. He left yesterday morning for his trip. I was so angry, I went and put them back in the Christmas closet. Later in the day I remembered that that trip isn't until next week. I'm glad I didn't yell at him about it!
