Is my memory that good?

Last night I was sleeping peacefully at 9:25pm. I heard my phone ring but I decided not to answer it because I was already sleeping really well and I didn't feel like getting up to answer it. Then, about 1 minute later I hear Boots start to bark and Justin walks into the bedroom with the phone in his hand. I hear him say to me, "It's your sister on the phone." I instantly panic. She never calls both of our phones. Are the kids okay? Has David been in a wreck? Is their house on fire? I say hello and she says, "Hi! I'm sorry to wake you but do you remember how much I pay my housekeeper? She's coming tomorrow and I can't remember." My jaw dropped! I said, "Yes...you pay her $100.00 in cash." She replies, "Thanks...that's what I thought but I couldn't remember for sure." We both say goodbye and Justin wants to know if everything was okay. I explain the conversation to him and he thought it was really scary that I knew the amount and my sister didn't.

I guess the reason I'm blogging about this is because my entire family has always teased me because I seem to misplace things a lot. My sister has always been the worst about it. Well, I guess she can't make fun anymore. I may be a little scatter brained at times but my memory is like a steel trap!

p.s. I would post a picture of Delilah and me but I can't remember where I put the latest one...

Ha ha. You should have told her that she usually gives $100 to the housekeeper and $20 to you. What? She doesn't remember that?

Maybe since she hasn't had a housekeeper for too long she couldn't remember. Once the habit sets in it will be easier to remember. Plus when you have a job and two small children it can drain on your memory. ( I remember well). Don't be too hard on her. Lots of hugs and kisses. Aunt Judy
