Going Senile

A few years ago my Grandma Funk started showing the first signs of dementia. She has since never ceased to entertain us with her -isms. She often forgets the real name of things and replaces them with other words. We still get a kick out of when she was yelling at my younger sister to quit running around without her feet on. (We think she meant shoes). Or when she woke up screaming because a cow was climbing in bed with her. It was a cat.

We love my Grandma and understand that this is beyond her control. But I have never really fully understood what she must feel until recently, when I have begun the early signs of Evz-heimers. Or pregnancy brain. Or maybe just getting dumber. Or maybe it's eating too many oranges. I don't know what it is, but my brain does NOT work.

The other day I got dressed and did some things around my house for more than an hour before I realized that I had not put a shirt on. I was wearing an open jacket, but no shirt. Just my bra and special underwear hanging all out over my bowl of a belly. Not so good.
I forgot to post about how my beautiful younger sister graduated from high school. She is now looking into piracy.

I forgot to post about how my fellow favorite knocked up sister Becca turned old and had her birthday. Happy Birthday, a month ago, Becca!

I forgot to post about how my wonderful mother-in-law went back to school and graduated from Bridgerland's Interior Design program and how proud we are of her. You better enjoy this picture because this is as close up of a baby bump picture that you will get for awhile. (I still think it looks like I eat tires).
Maybe it's because I turned 27. Old, old upper twenties. Maybe that's it. But one of these days I will forget to put my clothes on all together and cause quite a neighborhood sensation. I am in Utah County after all.
Here's a picture of me forgetting where my tongue goes. Becca seems a little constipated but Erica is just plain evil.
What was the point of this post? Yeah, I forgot.

this is my favorite post of all time. In grandma-ism terms, we always push-push to have a good time, every time it gets better better better. And have a nice life.

You crack me up! I think I have done this and I'm not pregnant....nor may ever be.......(these periods show my awkward silence).
I so want to come visit you! I think I'll be in Utah around the 16th of July- plan on being in town that week cause I will be!

You are too funny. Hate to tell you this, but I don't think those lost pregnancy brain cells ever come back.. At least mine haven't. :0)

Evzheimers sounds like a serious problem. You should probably treat it by hanging out with me.

You need to stop whining about getting older, it makes me feel too old!
