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!!!
