I used to be so focused, & now I really have to concentrate-did I really do my homework while watching TV when I was a kid? Where did I put my keys? I know I had them,I unlocked the door to come in the house. Now I read the recipe all the way through, at least once & check that I have everything & in the amounts needed, & once I've used it, put it aside or away. Takes longer to get things together, but the (better) results are worth it. I know this is good advice for all, not just seniors,but I kinda miss my photographic memory. Now, I can watch a movie, ask my DH when we got it & he'll tell me I've watched it a number of times-What? No way! I've never seen this movie before! Everything is new again! Does any of this happen to anybody else?
Also, I'll write down "need" on a shopping list & will buy it more than once. so I might have a lot of bananas, but no flour, but then go to CostCo & get a 25 #bagof it-won't have to worry about that for awhile!
So, we're getting a year's worth of rain in one week-everything's wet, but hopefully the worst is over, or will be by morning. & we might even get some sunshine this W/E. Hope everyone is doing fine out there in cyberland!
