Is this normal forgetfulness?

Sometimes I feel like I am losing it. I am not stressed out, I have no big problems, I am not depressed, I am not overworked, I get enough rest, and I have a comfortable life. So where is my mind going?????!

I have been quite forgetful lately. Someone can tell me something and five minutes later I will forget. But you would think that I wouldn't forget what furniture I've had in my own house for more than 30 years!

Yesterday evening my husband was trying to figure out how he can fit a table into my office (he wants to share my office to be closer to me -- his computer is now downstairs. It is pretty lonely and dank down there in the basement.) The table he now has his computer on is very wide and sticks out too far. So, I was trying to think of something else he could put it on. I asked, "what about that old drop-leaf table that was in my bedroom when I had my computer in there?" He said, he thought I got rid of that. I said "no, I don't think I did." He said maybe you gave it to J #2 (our middle son) and his fiancee. I said "no, they took the old one with the chrome legs." He said then that I probably threw it out and I told him I wouldn't throw something like that away. He then insisted that it was probably at J & W's place. I insisted that they have the table with the chrome legs, and another round table in their dining room.

So, I called J #2 and he said they didn't have the drop-leaf table, but have the table with the chrome legs and I LOVE being right and relayed that tidbit of news to hubby and gloated. However, that did not solve the mystery of where my damned drop-leaf table was. Then while I was talking to J #2, hubby says "It's in your bedroom with a television on it." OH MY GOSH! I go to bed and watch "Everybody Loves Raymond" EVERY SINGLE NIGHT from the television that is sitting ON THE DROP-LEAF TABLE. I also have the dvd player on it, and a collector doll, and that is where I lay the controllers EVERY STINKIN' NIGHT. What is WRONG with me???
