Mad Cow Strikes Again

I picked up a prescription at the drug store Friday afternoon, brought it home, and dropped the packet of pills into my overnight bag because I was heading to the beach Saturday. It also comes with a little pill holder thing that has the refill sticker on it, so I put that in my bathroom drawer. Then it was time to sew!

The next morning, I took my shower and went to take my pill, but there was only the holder, and no pills. I searched the entire drawer, went through the garbage in case I threw it away with the bag, searched the drawer again, and walked around the house a little bit. Then I called the drugstore, which was thankfully not open, and left a message about how when I opened the bag I found the pill holder, but no packet of pills, so I would need a refill.

I collected my things and went to put something in my overnight bag, whereupon I found said pills - DOH! (Yes, I called the drugstore back and said my Alzheimer's was acting up, very sorry, etc.) I guess it's not as bad as driving to New Orleans for a meeting a week early.

Anyhoo, here's the final product, which I wore to the party Saturday night. I was worried the shirt was just a smidge short (or the leggings just a smidge tight), but Dean gave it an enthusiastic thumbs up - unsolicited! - so I pressed on.

Hooray for Target having a rack of capri leggings right inside the front door. And a clearance rack of yoga capris next to that - got a pair for Pure Barre for $7 - whoop!

And on a side note, the decor for the party was outstanding (but the band sucked - picture the Benny Goodman band with 2 members - he was nice in his day, but this is 2012, right?). Every table had a 1.5-foot tall glass vase like a martini glass with glass rocks in the bottom, electric candle submerged in water, leafy green vegetation on top, and the big surprise was a betta in every one that they gave away at the end!

His name is Swimmy, and Lucas has already outfitted his new home on his dresser (this is not it). Nice party favor!

Hi Sister, your outfit turned out so cute. The dress would've been cute but I love the top and leggings. Perfect for a party. Great save. My worst Alzheimer's moment is when I've just taken a pill and I'm distracted and then I turn back and think, did I just take that or not? I wonder how many doses I have had to miss because I thought I already took it. Maybe that could be a theory for Alzheimer's research, you're actually born with it!

Sorry that was me, just a little trigger happy today and touched the anon button instead of the name button

Sister said...

Thanks. Rachelle - you need a pill box with days of the week; not sure what I need....

Outfit looks great!

Hmmm, my considered "professional" opinion is that you have Oldtimer's not Alzheimer's. I mean, after all, you did remember to take the pill. (My mom always called it Oldtimer's.)

But I'm just a middle-timer, so I resent having Oldtimers!

You know how literal engineers are, well,once, when I had just turned 50, I made a comment to one of my co-workers about being middle aged and he stopped me. He said you are way past middle age, I was dumfounded, I'm not that old! Well, he says, you don't want to live to be one hundred and something do you? He was right, what could I say??? But I still consider myself middle aged.....

You engineers are a funny bunch, Robbie!

Thanks Ann!
