I’ve Lost My Brain

I’ve lost my brain. Do you know where I might be able to find it?

Seriously – yesterday was bad to begin with because of my cold, but then I did something kind of embarrassing. I was just getting out of the shower when I heard a knock at the door. I knew it was the UPS guy, and I did not want to miss him. I ordered some new clothes for our NYC trip and I really wanted to make sure that they fit and looked good (they do, by the way!). Anyway, I yelled out the window that I would be right down, but he apparently didn’t hear me. I threw on some scrubs, my hair was in a towel, and I was in bare feet, but I had to catch that guy! I ran out the door, ran up to his truck, banged on the side, and said, “Umm, excuse me. I think you have a package for me?” He just looked at me and was like, “Uh, yeah. Hang on a sec.” At that point I turn around and realize that my next door neighbor is outside with a bunch of her friends, and they are all staring at me in my scrubs, turban-towel, and bare feet. Yikes. I quickly grabbed my boxes and skedaddled back inside my townhouse, face aflame. Ai yi yi.

Then today I woke up, got dressed, and went to the grocery. I had my little list and was dutifully following it. I paid for my purchases and headed on home, when I realized, “Dang it! I forgot to get mini-marshmallows!” (something I needed for a 4th of July dessert). I was disappointed, but figured that I could go ahead and make the dessert without them. I got home and started cooking, and realized that I didn’t have enough oatmeal. Grrr. I called Chris and asked him if he wouldn’t mind picking some up on his way home, and asked him to grab a bag of mini-marshmallows, too. I go back to the stove, then realize I forgot to get Cool Whip! Augh! I call Chris again and ask him to get some for me. No big deal, he says. If only it had stopped there! About 15 minutes later, still cooking, I realize that I’m not going to have enough sugar for both desserts. So I call Chris for the third time and ask him to pick some up. I swear to him that this will be my last time calling, and I go back to finishing my no-bake cookies.

I finish the cookies and look at the recipe for my 2nd dessert. While reading it, I realize that it calls for 3 8oz packages of Neufchatel cheese, and guess what – I only bought one. Oh, my, GOODNESS!!! Where was my brain?! I might as well not have even gone to the grocery store! So I pick up the phone and call Chris for the fourth time, and he’s just laughing at me by now. I ask him to pick up some Neufchatel cheese and tell him that I must’ve left my brain at work yesterday. He reminds me that he’s usually the absent-minded one, so it’s OK that I’m being a little spacey today. Oh, well!

    Oh too funny. My husband and I have done this to each other. We end up laughing…until about the sixth call, then we worry about the toll the children have taken on our minds, LOL.

    Oh wow. I was laughing so hard by the end…hope you find your brain! I'm still looking for mine. 🙂

    I never ever do this. Or, at least, I didn't used to. Now that my hubs is deployed, I seem to do it ALL of the time. Probably because I can't call him to go get butter, sugar, vanilla, etc. Ugh.

    Hopefully hubs remembers to get the rights stuff. Mine gets confused in the grocery store, haha!

    Oh girl, that is so me everyday. I hate being so spacey but I just can't help it. I can't tell you how many mornings I wake up to head to work and realize I've left the key in the hubs car (which he's already taken to work), or I can't find my phone, or my debit card, or.. the list goes on for days! I call him so much that the people that work for him now laugh when he gets off the phone and ask "what'd she do now?!". oh well…
