Pregnancy Brain...

It definitely exists... please don't get me wrong. I'll be the FIRST to admit that I'm scattered brained as heck, and if I ever am organized and seem like I have it together, it's because I've freakin' busted my butt and probably have a dirty kitchen and piles of laundry spilling out of my laundry room at home. Organizational administration just doesn't come naturally. BUT... I have NEVER forgotten SO MANY important things in one day. Here's how Thursday went down:

- One of the sweetest boys in my class' birthday was on Thursday. I didn't think about it ONCE during the day until after school when I looked at my calendar for the next week to see who's birthday was coming up. I don't know if you remember being in 3rd grade or turning 9, but it's no small thing. We make a big deal of it. There's a birthday book, birthday song (which can be rapped, sung in opera, rocked out or sung underwater), special pencil and bookmark, and a large sombrero that gets to be worn around for a few glorious minutes. It's a day filled with fun and lots of attention. What third grader wouldn't want that?! Well... I blew it. I completely forgot about Benjamin's birthday and he just never said anything. Luckily I caught him before his mom picked him up and apologized and we'll be celebrating on Monday. (I was out Friday afternoon...)

-I walked out of school with everything BUT my purse. Drove halfway home then realized I didn't have ANYTHING that I needed. No cellphone, no wallet, no snack for the drive home. (Essential these days...) Sheesh.

-I got home around 6:30 or so, sat on the couch for a few minutes then had to get up to head to my missional community meeting. On the way there, I realized that I completely stood someone up at 4:30. Just plain did not show up. How horrible! I felt like a pretty terrible, horrible, no good, very bad human being. Even worse? I didn't have her phone number. We'd been communicating via email and my computer wasn't working and my husband took his computer with him to Dallas for a conference. Eesh. Luckily, the girl I was meeting with was super gracious and doesn't hate me.

Please tell me that this doesn't get worse...

  1. Hehe...this made me laugh. Not at you, just at Pregnancy Brain. Thankfully it should only last 9 months. :) Love you!
