ON THE BACK BURNER

May 24

I use to be pretty organized. I was not on time. I was early for appointments and social gatherings. I use to know what the date was of the present day.  I use to change my outfits every day.  Now ,everything has changed and I don’t really know how to explain it. The date still changes every day. Since I don’t have a reason to know the date, I go by what special interest section is in the paper that  day. style is Thursday. Food is Wednesday. science is Tuesday, Sports Monday. Bad news is every day. I am thinking of ending my subscription, but then I would have no chance of knowing the date. When I write a dheck, which doesn’t happen often, I just put any date that sounds right. So far they have all cleared. Today, I had an 11 o’clock appointment. At 11:20 , I got a call asking if I was OK because I was late. I felt terrible.  I rescheduled and got there 30  minutes early, just to make sure. I lost something in the house that is always put away in the same place. I found it when I went to look for something else. It was in a sensible place, just not where it lived, usually. Is this phenomena because my brain is on overload from too much social separation, too much Zooming,  too much NetFlix,too much ordering on Amazon, too much ,much. Did I say that I ordered a frame and memory foam mattress from Amazon! I scan the Covid19 numbers, I check ours and Port Townsend. They have 0 new cases. we had 15. I read the valid scientific reports of what  is new,different, challenging and safe for me to do. No wonder my brain is fatigued . I need to do what one of my daughters is doing. No matter what, only one hour of news a day is allowed. What will I do with the other 23 .

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
