Gramma Brain

I had a purpose for this Thursday posting…
Hmmm, what was it?

*sigh* I’m forgetful.

There’s too much to remember! I just can’t “busy” like I used to.
I can’t possibly be expected to keep track of it all!
Especially with the potential digressions.

And distractions.
I think I suffer from grAyDD.
Look! A penny!

I need extra pairs of readers. For my purse, my pocket, my bathroom, my car, my office, my nightstand, my head, my face…ALL THE PLACES! (at the same time, right?) Because I don’t remember where I last had them. And seriously, I can’t read without them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My very pregnant daughter suffers similar forgetfulness. She blames “mama brain”.

Sounds legit.

I have a whole generation worse–I have “gramma brain”.

Luckily, BBs are good for grandmas. All that repetition: parroting, reminding, redoing, retying, remaking, reheating…and sitting through sixteen re-readings of the same book. Soon we will graduate to memory games and I Spy, Where’s Waldo and Guess Who?. Surely those mental exercises will help keep me sharp. At least as sharp as a three year old.

I started this blog with a purpose, what was it…?
Movie review? Not today.
Book review? Nope.
Bragging on the continued success of my novella, Kinder GardenDone that.

Oh yeah!
We got a puppy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How could I possibly forget that?!
I spoke with BB and he had NO TROUBLE remembering that Gramma got a goggie.

About Mary Fran Says

I am an artist, crafter, designer and writer. I enjoy working with mixed media-- applying visual and tactile manipulations to telling a story. Not a lot of market for that, though, :), so I'm focusing on short story submissions and novel completions. Yes, plural. Lots of beginnings, too many ideas, not enough focus.
