If it's Belgium, this must be Tuesday

I'm still having a problem keeping the days of the week straight, and with next Monday being another holiday (I need to dust off my copy of 1776 in preparation) I afraid my confusion is going to get even worse. If I worked a nine-to-five job it wouldn't matter so much, but since my work schedule depends on what day of the week it is, I'm afraid that one of these days I'm going to go in at noon when I should go at 6pm, or worse, think I'm supposed to go in at six when I should've been there at noon.

I didn't used to be so spacey. In fact, my mom still brags about my memory (which, thank God, is still better than hers, but since she's in her 70's now that's not saying a lot). It's also taking me longer to dredge up those tidbits of trivia that so impress people that when they are watching a movie on TV and can't remember the name of it they call me and describe it so I can tell them what it is. It used to be that I could walk through a room and see a snippet of a film on the TV screen and know exactly what it was. Now I know I know it, but the title is back in a dusty file cabinet drawer that just won't open no matter how hard I tug.

Yes, my brain needs a file clerk.

Take heart in knowing that you are not alone. I forget to call in my over-time nearly every week because I forget it's Thursday.

The date is a whole different matter. Most of the time I have no idea what the date is. I just write the month & year on all the invoices I fill out for work.

Aah, 1776. Hope it's on TV this year!

I'm the same way with movies. I have a lot of people that come to me for information on movies, actors, TV shows and music. Unfortunately, like you, I'm starting to loose my edge.

Who needs a brain when there's Google & IMDB :-)
