So when I said

by adustyframe ~ March 30th, 2009

that bits of my former self are peeking through…was that just last week? I spoke too soon.

Last Thursday, James and I went to his dentist appointment. Someone came out of the hallway and I thought, “That kid looks familiar.” James and I checked in and sat down and I hear,

“Hi, Aunt Lizzie.” Yep! It was my own nephew (well Lee’s nephew) and I didn’t recognize him. Good grief!

We had a  nice chat while he waited for his appointment, but the whole time I was thinking, “Ok it’s not so and so or so and so what is his name?” When they called him back, I was off the hook! At least I knew who I had been talking to.

Then this past weekend, when my brother and sister in law came to see us, I made nachos. I gathered all sorts of toppings and we built our own.

At the end of the meal, I took a bite of nachos with nothing but hamburger and chips. “Does this meat taste weird?” I asked. My sister in law admitted that it did.

I put CINNAMON in the taco meat instead of chili powder.

I guess I’m not as back to normal as I thought I was.

    Don’t feel bad… I have put taco seasoning (instead of cinnamon) in the egg batter for French Toast!!! (Now THAT tastes really bad, esp. with syrup) =)
