Yoo Hoo!

I read an article recently about the aging mind and it wasn’t pretty.  I sure wish I could remember what it said exactly, but darn it if my aging mind let all the details go fuzzy.  I do remember that it offered me some solace that I wasn’t losing my mind…or at least that I wasn’t alone in losing my mind…something like that.

It is said that stress also has a dramatic impact on one’s ability to think clearly and retain information.  My aging mind when coupled with my high stress level equates with the mental equivalent of a mashed potatoes.  More and more I feel like a crazy person who has no control over her own brain.

Oh, how I miss my sanity.  I want it back.  I have searched for it in the dark recesses of my consciousness, but all I can find is a half-full gravy boat to go with the mashed potatoes.

I saw this magnet at a store I shop at and it spoke to me (I can say this having already acknowledged my sanity has left the building – of course magnets now “speak” to me).  Seeing as my solitary search for my sanity has not proved fruitful, I am thinking that perhaps I should solicit the assistance of others…hence my identification with this magnet.  So, if you have seen my sanity, please do let me know where it is.  If nothing else I would like to have a full gravy boat to go with my mashed potatoes.

Day six hundred and twenty-one of the new forty – obla di obla da

I teach at NDSU...but I remain a student of life with all the enthusiasm that entails. My favorite saying is, "Sometimes you have to take the leap and build your wings on the way down." In the new forty that is what I am doing...building my wings.

    My dear woman, it is quite possible that our sanities are frolicking together on some beach, somewhere and most likely with bronze skinned, buff beach boys.

    I too would like a full gravy boat to go with my mashed potatoes….
