Thursday Thirteen

Staying at home, especially now that I'm retired, makes it difficult to remember what day it is.  Do you find yourself unable to remember if it's Tuesday or Wednesday?  If it's trash day or recycle day or payday?  Is it April or May?  Or June?

Here's how I've been keeping track of time.

1.  By how many times I have changed the sheets.
2.  By how many times I have washed the towels.
3.  By how many times I have clipped my nails.
4.  By how many inches my hair has grown. (No, I haven't cut it... yet.)

5.  By how many times I have changed the cat litter.
6.  By how many pension checks I've received since the stay-at-home order started.
7.  By how many bottles of soap we have used.
8.  By how many rolls of toilet paper we have used.

9.  By the number of pages I've colored.
10. By how many times I've applied flea medicine on the cat.
11. By how many recipes I've used.
12. By how many times we've skyped with family.
And the saddest of all things...
13. By the age of my new granddaughter.
Link up for more Thursday Thirteen.


  1. What a beautiful granddaughter you have! My 15 year-old's hair has grown wild like Harry Potter's, and I wish I had shears. Ah well, we'll just have to wait for lock down orders to ease.

  2. Hi,
    I loose whole weeks sometimes. I've started checking off each day on the calendar so I don't forget what day it have a great day!

  3. It is easy to lose track of time when the days are screwy. Congratulations on your retirement!

  4. By how many times I cook a meal, clean up and feed the birds! Beautiful granddaughter.

  5. I'm going on 2 years being a retired old fogey. For me, most days is Sunday. For the Husband, it's Saturday. As long as we remember garbage day every week, we're fine. lol
