Flightiness and an X-rated Track Meet

I don't know what is wrong with me lately. Too much chaos clouding my brain maybe. I am not normally so forgetful but so far, I have missed Nico's orthodontist appointment, not once but twice! I almost missed his check-up at the ENT. I forgot to send pictures in for an 8th grade memory wall. I keep forgetting to sign the kids up for camps for summer. I am terrible at remembering to call people back and I'm afraid that I missed a class I am taking. I keep meaning to exercise and then crawl into bed and am suddenly struck with "I forgot to do Zumba or walk on the treadmill."

I keep forgetting to call Orkin and cancel them because I have grown to hate them and their dumb solutions to the problems I have over here. No signs of mice (thank God) but the ants are terrible and I am tired of hearing that it is from all the work we have done outside. I thought the "barrier" that they put around the house was supposed to stop them from coming in and they are having a flipping party over here with Gia dropping food everywhere she goes.

Why can't I forget to eat junk food? Somehow I keep remembering to do that. I swear being flighty is foreign to me and I'd like it to stop. Please don't say, "Get a calendar. I have one but I keep forgetting to check it.

So I went to Nico's track meet on Monday. While getting dressed in one of the three outfits I wear in public, I forgot why I wear a tank top under my button-down plaid shirt. Nico ran and I cheered. Nico's friends ran and I cheered. While leaving, I stopped to talk to his coach (also his science teacher) and one of the gym teachers (both men) and had a lovely conversation about how well Nico did and how his ankles are fine and how great it is that he doesn't let anything stop him. I didn't notice any funny looks but as I walked away, I felt a breeze in a place that was odd. I looked down and one of the buttons had popped open. Yep...the one that allowed the whole world to see my bra. Ahh...then I remembered...that's why I wear a black tank top under that shirt.


I don't care that it is supposed to be 80 degrees out today, I will be wearing a turtleneck to today's track meet.

hahahahaha! I have a few shirts like that. I think May is crazier than December when your kids get old enough. Seriously crazy schedules. in other words, I feel your pain on feeling flighty! Too much to do!

Yep! Glad I am not alone and May is definitely busier in this house.

Hee! Totally been there, girlfriend!

Here's to tank tops and early cocktails! :)

Aw, Galit! So happy you stopped by! I do love tank tops and LOVE the idea of early cocktails! Can I start now?

You're not alone. I forget what I'm doing all the time. I blame the kids. Or my husband. ;)

I seriously remember everything at the worst times. I will walk downstairs remembering that I have to change the laundry, but the time I get down there I will have forgotten. I am totally the biggest loser ever. My kids have given up on me.

And the shirt thing. I got nothing except lots of wine.

You have a great reason for forgetting things! I'd milk it. :)

That is so true! I remember at the worst times, too (well, obviously)!

Yes, I could use lots of wine. Today maybe I'll start before the baseball game.

Haha! Sounds like a day here, girl! I liked your idea of this very unrealistic getaway. Let's do it!

We can dream though, right? You have to admit, it sounds like a little piece if Heaven, doesn't it? Think of all the chaos if all of us suddenly went missing. :)
