My memory has vanished, gone, never to be seen again. You can blame it on the pregnancy, but I think it is seeking a tropical island to cruise to. I’m not saying I forget something from time to time but I can’t hold a single thought in my head for longer than two seconds. I’ll remember something in the morning that needs to be done, or a child needs to be taken to, and by afternoon I will have completely forgotten.
Why blog about a vanished brain? Well, perhaps to vent a bit. See, I feel horrible and like I am letting my everyone down, worst of all my children. For the second time this month I forgot about taking Elizabeth to a church activity that was really important to her. I feel like a heel. I keep forgetting about the meetings I have to practice with the three ladies I am accompanying for a musical number at church. They call to remind me at the time I should have been there, but then I end up keeping them waiting for 10-20 minutes while I try to find my keys, my shoes, shake of the children, and drive to the church to practice.
I will have a thought that I should stop and visit someone, or take cookies to them. It doesn’t get acted upon because I FORGET. Grrrr. Emily hasn’t had a play-date for two weeks because I keep forgetting to set one up. It is so frustrating, and I feel so terrible. It doesn’t matter how many times I write it down – I’ll forget shortly after reading it. I have turned into one of the characteristics that I despise the most: an unreliable flake.
On the upside, I have at least remembered Liz’s dentist appointment, and the kids picture appointments at Wal-Mart (so much cheaper than school pics – rather than $25 minimum for a dinky package, I get a huge package for $6 – can’t beat that, and they do a decent job too).
So, with my vanished brain, comes vanished keys, vanished shoes, vanished purse. Thankfully now vanished kids yet – I haven’t set them down and forgotten where I put them as of yet. heh 🙂 Thank goodness for a sweet husband who helps keep track of my schedule, reminds me of when events are, and can tell me without batting an eye where I last set down whatever it is I am looking for.
I’d like to say that I misplaced my computer for an excuse as to why I have been so neglect in writing – and reading – or that I keep forgetting 😉 but I have been busy, and honestly not in the mood. Maybe it’s just that I have a hard time thinking of something to write about when what is left of my brain is so busy trying to remember what I have forgotten. 🙂 hee hee.
Anyway, bring on the vanishing memory and brain jokes – I need a laugh, even if it is at my own expense! 😀
