I’m Losing It!

My sister Ann, Michael and I took a long 3 mile walk around some of the country roads early this morning.  As we walked along I tucked my hands in my vest pocket and noticed that my American Express card was still there from when I paid for the fuel we purchased Saturday evening.  After arriving back at the motorhome I went to get the card and put it back in my wallet—it wasn’t there!!!  YIKES—we had walked on gravel roads and out through heavily forested trails—could be hunting for a needle in a haystack.  While Mom and I made lunch Ann took their 4-wheeler out and found the card right in the middle of the gravel road.  OK, that was one case of losing it today.

Before we left Montana I purchased Wal Mart gift cards for my two great nieces and for my nephews.  Can’t find the cards and I am almost certain I left the gift cards on the dresser in the guest bedroom back home.  So, I purchased new ones today—OK, that’s the second case of losing it!

Then Ann took Michael and me to Benton to find a pawn shop—the outdated amplifier in the motorhome died and without the amplifier we can’t listen to CD’s in the huge multi-disc player that came with the motorhome.  Michael thought a pawn shop would be the place to look and he was right—found one.  Then I decided we needed to look at furniture—loveseats that recline for the motorhome.  I carry a small tape measure in my purse and we were using it to measure various couches—I kept losing the tape measure then my cell phone, then the tape measure.  I am really losing it!!

A stop at Wal Mart for a few groceries and then home—leftovers for supper and more visiting.  Niki brought the girls over to spend the night with Granny—my sister who is babysitting them tomorrow—should be entertaining around here for sure!

Talked to Rollie today about plans for arriving in the desert.  They haven’t set firm plans for leaving Louisiana yet but hopefully before the end of the year. 

My brother and his son Clayton drove to Dallas yesterday, picked up a load of pipe this morning early and drove back this afternoon.  My other nephew had his wisdom teeth removed today—what an icky way to spend Christmas vacation!!!

That is all the news from Barnes-Hill for today. 


  1. Ok maybe you just have low altitude sickness. Hey when we went to Colorado I had high altitude sickness. Don't see why it can't be reversed for you. Hope you don't loose anything else.
    Glad you are having a good visit.

  2. sounds like you had a day where you should have kept things zipped up!..tomorrow can only be better!!!

  3. Years ago Hank Williams sang about a, 'Lost Highway,' Duane Eddy had an instrumental tune called, 'Lost Island' & I think Brenda Lee sang about, 'Losing You.' I think you are well on your way to writing a new tune called, 'Losing It.' Go get em can do it:))

  4. That is what happens when you are around the family. Have you heard of the "Johnson thing"? We all seem to have some memory loss. Need to stop by before you leave.

  5. At least you haven't lost your sense of humour! A day like yours could really end up ruining a person's day but you seem to have weathered it pretty well.

  6. It was great to speak to Mike yesterday. Gina and I can't wait to see you guys soon!! Now there are a lot of days we both feel like we're losing it right with you. Miss you guys,

    Rollie & Gina
