I have been forgetting things lately and one night it was really bad. I'm either mentally overloaded, losing my mind, or my hypothyroidism is really messing with my memory.
My first huge brain blunder:
It was the first week of September and I hadn't flipped my calendar over yet. I came home from soccer practice on a Wednesday evening and I had a message from my endocrinologist's office. I had an appt. the next day! I totally forgot about it and I didn't get my labwork done. There is no point in having the appointment if I don't have bloodwork results! I was freaking out, but it was 8:30 at night so I couldn't call them until the morning. I had to work on Thursday, because we had surgeries scheduled. I got done at 1:30 and remembered that I was going to call the Dr.'s office in the morning to tell them I wouldn't make it. I forgot to do that too and my appt. was at 1! I was so mad at myself! I've never missed a Dr. appointment before and being in the medical field, I know how frowned upon it is when someone is a no show! I called and apologized and explained my other blunders and the receptionist laughed and I think felt bad for me. Either that, or she thinks I'm nuts! lol
My second brain blunder:
Also on that Wednesday night, I had to start a load of laundry because Ashton needed his baseball uniform, that he just wore that night in a game, clean for another game on Thursday after school. I threw the load in so I could just throw it in the dryer in the morning when I woke up and it would be dry and ready when he got on the bus. I got up in the morning and went to grab the clothes to throw them in the dryer and they were already dry. I grabbed another piece of clothing and it was also dry. I then realized that I had loaded it, filled the soap dispenser, but forgot to hit start!!
My third brain blunder:
On Wednesday morning while I was brushing Sawyer's teeth, I let him do his teeth on his own and then I go over them, his tooth fell out. Before bed on Wednesday night, he put his tooth in his tooth box for the toothfairy. Well, he woke up and said "the toothfairy didn't come!" I about died! I felt like a horrible mom. I now know that it's easy to forget, especially when it's not your first child and not the first lost tooth, but I still felt like crap. A bunch of my friend's said that they have also forgotten. I quickly told him that the toothfairy must not have realized it was there because it was on his nightstand and not under his pillow. We put it under his pillow on Thursday night and the toothfairy did show. Whew!
I can't believe I did all of that in one night! I think I need a mental break and soon! Baseball is over and I'm really trying to let go of some of the boards and committees I've been on. It's just too much. The older the kids get, the crazier the schedules get.
I had my rescheduled endocrinologist appointment for this past Monday. I remembered to go for my bloodwork last week so my Dr. would have my results for my appointment. I told Jerry on Sunday night to not let me forget my appointment.
This is what I woke to find in the kitchen and living room:
I woke up on Wednesday morning to find these in the kitchen. Jerry is so sweet! He bought them the night before and hid them in his tool shed until the morning.
