The other day I went to the store for one item, the item I went there for I had forgotten. I was heading out to the parking lot to drive home and forgot where I parked; I had parked my car in another section of the lot than I usually do. Good thing it was not raining hard that day. I am always putting down my glasses and have to hunt for them. My car keys are usually in the side pocket of my purse,but have been known to fall out and I am left looking for them ten minutes before I leave for work.(some say plan ahead,who plans on loosing car keys?).  The perils of living the middle age life. We stand up and wonder why our knee just cracked, we walk into a room and forget what we went in there for, forget to put gas in the car, we even accuse the dryer of eating our other sock.

I was talking to my friend the other day. We were laughing because she  told me about the time she was locked out of her van because one of her dogs accidentally stepped on the door lock. Of course she was on lunch break and her phone as well as her purse was in the front seat. She had to call her husband to unlock her door. The short walk for the dogs were now out of the question.

This thing we call living with middle age. It is much harder than I imagined. Just the other day I was going to visit a friend I haven’t seen in a while.I thought I was going in the right direction. Somehow, I got turned around in a neighborhood(they all looked alike) and could not find her house. I was surprised to see how much her housing tract has grown in a year. I came across one of the new roundabouts in the road and was really confused which direction to go then. “When did they put this in I thought”. I finally found her house her responce”what took you so long,the coffee is getting cold”.
