If I Only Had a Brain

How could an unborn child the size of a sesame seed be responsible for me completely losing my ever lovin' mind?

Ever heard of pregnancy amnesia???? I'm suffering from a severe case.

A few nights ago I went to the grocery store to pick up a few things. After I shopped around for a while and stopped to chat with a fellow city council member, I checked out and realized I couldn't find my keys. In a complete panic, I dumped the contents of my 38497345893 pound purse . . . no keys. Where are my keys? WHERE ARE MY KEYS? Where are my keys?????

As a last resort, I went outside to check in my car. I was doubtful because my car won't lock if the keys are inside the vehicle. Lo and behold, there was my vehicle . . . STILL RUNNING in the parking lot with the headlights on and the radio still playing. WTH? Although it was great that the car was still nice and toasty warm . . .

Attention all car thieves:

The seat warmer is still on, the CD player is full of rockin' dance tunes (and a little Elmo), and the engine is still running.

Wanna steal me?

(And John, this story is a figment of my overactive imagination, invented as fodder for my blog. You didn't think I was this seriously reckless with our vehicle, did you???? :)

Then today I went to the mall to pick up a few final items for Christmas. When I was finished I realized I had no idea where I parked. Now, I'm not talking I didn't remember what aisle I left my car. I COULDN'T REMEMBER WHAT END OF THE MALL I ENTERED, WHAT STORE I WAS NEAR . . . NOTHING. Good thing it was 9 degrees today . . . kept me from getting too hot as I jogged about 4 miles around the parking lot searching. I almost started crying but it was too cold to get my face wet.

But John . . . look on the bright side . . . at least I didn't leave it running this time . . .

I also did that while i was preggo. And I got lost 5 blocks from home. I could not for the life of me remember where I lived! Oh the joys of pregnancies!

You're a mean commenter... for the love of christmas - be nice.
