Has Anybody Seen My Marbles???

marbles-1If you see a bunch of marbles rolling down the sidewalk, would you do me a favour and please send them to me?  About a week ago, mine apparently left home, and without them I am somewhat addlepated. I don’t know why they left … perhaps I have not taken proper care of them and they were feeling slightly neglected … I just do not know.

In the past week, I have done the following:

  • White Female In Blue Scrubs Taking Notes On A ChartForgotten to wash my daughter’s nursing scrubs … she finally asked me about it after wearing the same outfit for the third day in a row.
  • Drove almost all the way home from Kroger with the rear car door wide open. (I kept wondering why the dome light was still on)
  • Forgotten to take my insulin at least 3 times, and forgot once whether I had taken it or not.


  • Forgot to feed the cats.


  • Spent 10 minutes looking for mayonnaise in the fridge, when it was right in front on the top shelf.
  • Lost all my socks (they were later found in the box with the Christmas cups I had packed away).
  • Thawed meat to make an Italian veggie soup, then forgot until dinnertime that I hadn’t actually made the soup.
  • Run the clothes dryer for an hour … empty.
  • Put away a dishwasher full of dirty dishes

And the list goes on.  Without my marbles, I simply do not function well at all!


After apologizing profusely to my daughter for the lack of clean scrubs, I lamented that perhaps all this is a sign that Alzheimer’s is setting in.  She pooh-poohed the notion and said I am simply too much distracted by the political climate about which I spend the majority of my time reading and writing.  Perhaps so, but still … I would sincerely appreciate the return of my marbles.

white-houseI did have one thought … perhaps my marbles left and are headed toward 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, where their intent is to rest on the steps of the big White House, lying in wait for a certain person-who-shall-remain-nameless, and their plan is to send him rolling on the steps, where he will bonk his head and lie in a vegetative state for the rest of his days.

I keep hearing the word “preoccupied” by my family.  I sense that they had a family meeting to which I was not invited, and it was decided that “when she does something dumb, just give her a hug and tell her it’s okay, that she is just ‘preoccupied’”.

At any rate … if you should happen upon a bunch … I think there are around 150 … of these guys rolling along aimlessly, send me a message and I will send you my address to return them.  There is, by the way, a reward for their return … $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

  1. You need a good hug and also to take some time away. I find the comics help — as does a large glass of scotch! But it doesn’t pay to get too close to this man and his pathological behavior. We must keep reminding ourselves that this, too, shall pass.

    • Yes, I do need both. My planned break last weekend fell apart, so instead I read and wrote even more … needed that break! I will take your advice on the comics, though … and perhaps wine, since I don’t care for scotch! Thanks, Hugh!


  2. Oh heavens, don’t worry. If they’re at the White House they’re missing in a good cause. In fact, mine are on the way as reinforcements so we can cover more ground. I have to get that hated pout off the front pages of the UK newspapers somehow.
