It's not confusion, just changing pace!

This is the best advice that I have given myself since a multitude of changes have swept through my life. Especially in the area of aging. You put the keys in the refrigerator and then ask, who did that? Well I am the only one in the house at the time, so I must have been me, confusion? no! changing pace--I was just moving too fast! Put my hands under the faucet at home waiting for the water to come out, Oh, I forgot there are no sensors on my home faucets. Confusion? no! changing pace, re-trained my mind.
