I saw you'd updated, but I missed some posts yesterday. Checked it with my thread subscription this morning and there they were! Love having the option of subscribing to threads!
It probably isn't as bad at home, I'll bet -- seems to me that sort of thing is worsened by unfamiliar environments. Maybe because it's the "coping with newness" part of the brain that is most affected? But both my MIL and one grandmother got like that at one point -- coped pretty well with the everyday stuff, although we all knew they were spacier, but get them out of her comfort zone and, oh boy!
My dad's still A Force of Nature in terms of the physical, but he's getting spacier than he was. Mom, OTOH, is in great shape mentally, but has physically slowed considerable. Although I guess it's better that they each lose speed on one front than it would be if one of them was carrying the whole load of aging.
