Why is it I am so freaking forgetful?? I drive myself batty!! Even with reminders and alerts I still forget to do things!
Case in point…dance pictures. This was the week to pick up Claire’s dance pictures. I had my reminder set for last night. I went to the studio to pick out the pictures I wanted to get for Claire. I stood in line for as long as I could before having to bolt to go pick up Lucas from lacrosse. I made a mental note to go back to the studio today to pick out and pick up the pictures. I put it in my calendar and then it just went POOF….outta my brain. I looked at the clock at 3 and did the mental head slap…SHIT!!!! I totally forget to get back to the studio to pick up Claire’s pictures!!
Now, I gotta do some quick thinking and fancy footwork! Thankfully, I have Julie! She’s the keeper of all things I am not and she came to my rescue with the name and number of the photography studio. Now, I can call them, covering my ass from having to admit to Claire that I forgot to go pick out her dance pictures.
I dread to think what I’m going to be like when I’m old ~ so does Stan. This is not going to end well for me unless I can figure out some way to maybe attach some type of electrode to my body and deliver a jolt of electricity when I have something I need to do. Other than that I may be screwed!
It’s not like I try to forget things. I really do try. I have calendars. I have my phone to alert me. I just can’t keep my shit straight but I really do try, I promise.
Trying to remember everything, everyplace and every everything I am supposed to be or do is for the love of my children….
