Happiness is good health and a bad memory sign

I'm pretty happy, I'd say about 95% of the time.  My health is pretty darn good, too, not much to complain about at 68.  On the other hand, I have a very bad memory.  It's always been bad, always.  I remember telling my daughters that my memory was like a colander, full of holes.

It's a miracle I can teach Tai Chi.  I teach the "hard" version, Yang Style 108 movements.  I chose to teach this version to seniors because challenge is good.  The 108 movements involve lots of kicks and turns.  My biggest challenge is remembering all the movements and all the transitions moves, involved; probably a total of over 300 movements.

My latest memory snafu, involved forgetting my son-in-laws birthday.  His birthday was last week and I totally blew it!  I'll get a card and a gift card off to him this week, and hope he forgives the lapse.

About 20 years ago my Mom stopped remembering Bob's birthday, and 10 years ago mine.  So, I know how it feels.  I'll work on having no more lapses.  I really think I need a secretary!
Thanks for stopping by and sharing my life with me,


  1. I am the same way, Jan. I figure it is a good thing in the fact that I don't hold grudges, and my students start each day with a clean slate!

  2. Don't worry about it. We've been slammed with all kinds of things over here, including his mom's memory degrading so much he's taking her to the doctor for alzheimer's & dementia testing.

    Does your iPad or phone have a calendar app?
