Scatter Brained?
OK, my friends, I have been off Diet Coke for several weeks now and I think my brain cells have died since they are no longer getting all those Diet Coke Chemicals.

Seriously, I have been doing the weirdest things lately.

For example, today I decided to run out to the Bible Book Store which is about 15 minutes from my house. Twice a week I have one hour with no kids and I try and do something fun with that time, and not do laundry.

So, I figured I could run out to the book store and have about 40 minutes to just browse and maybe pick up some stocking stuffers.

That all sounded just great until I parked my car and went to grab my purse and realized I HAD LEFT MY PURSE AT HOME. With all the money in it.

I personally find it very hard to shop with NO MONEY.

Oh well, I went in and just browsed, which was still fun.

Then I remembered I had to pick up the kids Christmas pictures from the portrait studio that was right around the corner. Great, my trip out this way will not be in vain.

I zip into the portrait studio and explain that I would like to pick up my pictures. Do you have your receipt? Well, no. Do you have identification? Umm, nada.

Another wasted trip. It seems that portrait studios frown upon giving hundreds of dollars worth of pictures to people with no Identification or receipt.

Of course, I could have proved who I was if I had actually been in the picture. But, you see, I couldn't find a thing to wear and thus just had the pictures taken of the kids.

I am seeing a pattern here, are you?

Thanks ladies, I just have to laugh at myself sometimes.

Thanks for your support, Rochelle. At first when I read your comment I thought you were telling my husband to go back to DC, where he is on a business trip, due to all the mishaps we have been having around her with him gone.

He told me he read my blog and still wants to come home and be with us. Aint he sweet?

I am going to try all my errands again today, this time with my purse.

Thanks again,

I think that's called, "Your mind going in too many directions". I have that a lot!

I tried to give up all caffeine a few months ago after a four day weekend with awful headaches...I realized I was addicted to my morning coffee at work! But... three days of nothing at all made me realize I am not a nice person without some form of caffeine.

You are a brave, strong person. Your brain will come back! :)
