Friday's Ramblings

Dear Gentle Readers:

If you are anything like me, you have many, many usernames and passwords for the various accounts/sites you visit on the Internet that require a secured log in, i.e., username and password.  I just counted mine, and found that I have 65 places on the Internet where I must log in with secured information.  These include places like my online banking, stores I shop at online, various email accounts I have, utility companies, pharmacies, my doctor's office so that I can receive lab results, government sites, periodical subscriptions, travel sites, HR stuff at my employment, my ADT account, etc.  It's mind-boggling. 

Just writing that depresses me.  Why, you might ask?

As I get older, my memory is failing me.  I know this to be true. At least I have the mental cognition to realize this is happening.  Guess that means I do not have any form of dementia.  At least, not yet.

I do, however, remember the day when I could remember all that I knew.  I could remember all of the piano pieces I'd learned in my entire life, everyones' birthday, anniversaries, death dates, etc.  I used to be able to recite all of the teachers I've had since Kindergarten.  Yes, even the multiple teachers we all get in MS and HS.  I could remember every holiday, birthday, and special event, and where I was and what I did. 

This morning I can hardly remember what I had for dinner last night. 

There is an upside:  TGIF!!!  WOO HOO!!!
