Okay, I say that tongue in cheek. I am suffering from severe prego brain and have done some dumb stuff. I've got Freddy Mercury singing "I'm Going Slightly Mad" in my head and I think I believe it. I'm forgetful, I do stupid things, I'm clumsy, it's horrible! I just have lots on my mind I guess. Here are a few of the doozies that are on my mind.
*I worked the Dow last night and our stand was off by $1000. Idiot me forgot to empty out one cash register...Duh.
*I left my closet door open today and Austin found one of his nice Christmas presents. Gosh was he excited. Tommy comes downstairs and says, "Mom, Austin saw the Thomas present in your closet, you left it right out in the open." Followed by a very gleeful Austin squeal, "Mommy guess what!!" you can ad lib the rest.
*I send Joe to the basement with other Christmas presents hoping to avert further disaster and almost send him down with one of his. Double Duh.
*The Great Migration has begun. Joe & I moved downstairs and the boys have moved to our big room upstairs. We still have work to do but it's a start. We'll all sleep in the new rooms tonight.
*I had the craziest dream last night and I swear every aspect of my life was involved from Tommy's hockey parents, to current and former coworkers, to my new baby. I could probably fill a whole page detailing this very vivid dream. It was a baby boy and I left him home alone for 5 hours and knew I had to get back to him but I just couldn't, something kept preventing me from getting there. I was afraid he was going to die of starvation, or if he didn't die I knew that he was going to be taken away from me by child protective services. It was freaky. I even commented at the Texan last night (Joe and I had a late 11:00 dinner date) that the food would probably give me crazy dreams. No more Texan so close to midnight.
*I have to go to Detroit tomorrow for 8:30 to fight my ticket. Throw in a monster storm and I pray it doesn't take more than 3 hours to get there. The forecast is calling for 5-8 inches. I imagine the boys will have a snow day. All I know is they better not cancel my court hearing if I make it down there!
*Today at church I had no focus, I kept thinking about the Christmas program, senior luncheon, next week's all school mass. I did more people watching today than participating. Ugh!
*My Astronomy final is a week away. I fear for my current B as I seem to have an attention deficit problem lately.
*I have an OB appt. tomorrow at 3:00 and I don't remember where I put my pee pee cup. ;) Haha, just kidding I know where it's at. Remembering to pee in it tomorrow morning might be another matter though.
At least I can laugh at all this. My humor shall deliver me or maybe at worst leave me divorced. ;) Speaking of humor, a little Thanksgiving goodness. My Mom is the only person nutty enough to put food coloring in her gravy and we've had some interesting gravy colors through the years. Austin was so freaked thinking about Grandma's blue gravy from last year. I heard about it 5 times that day before we got there. He came into my room that morning and I wake up to "I don't like Grandma's blue gravy!" So along with the blue which was requested by Tommy for the Bay County Blizzard, Grandma kept some normal gravy. It is hard to eat mashed potatoes and blue gravy. Blue anything should be blueberry flavored, it's a freaky mind over matter thing. Kind of like Green eggs & ham I suppose.
Almost time for bed, hopefully with some sweet dreams.
***UPDATED*** Well I survived my trek down to Detroit. The roads weren't too bad and I got there almost two hours early so I ate solo at Bob Evans. They had a herd of us, processed us like cattle, gave us two options, 1st - write it for double parking, no points, pay $155 fine, clean driving record...or wait forever and continue to fight it. It's a sham but I got out of the points which is what I guess I wanted. I came home and slept for almost 3 hours. I dreamed I missed my appt. and was just fuming at Joe for falling asleep. Too funny.
