Here is your brain on
I have seriously lost my mind. I thought I was a little absentminded while I was pregnant, but it’s gotten much worse now. When I was pregnant I simply couldn’t seem to find the correct word to use when I was talking to someone, writing, and sometimes even when I was thinking to myself.
Now I cannot find anything. I make grocery lists and then get home just to realize that I’ve forgotten things on my list even though I checked it a few times while at the store. I also forget that I have purchased items the week before and I get multiples of things.
I forget everything people tell me, unless it’s written down. And even then I forget and I have to go back and read e-mails two or three times to make sure I get everything. I never remember anything my husband says and I am sure it drives him crazy.
I also forget what I tell people, so I am now the crazy lady who tells the same story over and over again. Remind me to lay off my grandma a little.
Here are the top crazy things I’ve done recently:
· Today I forgot my dogs were locked in the basement (they were on a barking craze) and I got angry when I repeatedly called them to the second floor. I was convinced they were ignoring me until I heard them whining from below. Bad mommy.
· I’ve loaded up the car just to forget that the baby is in the car seat in the house (don’t worry, I never actually leave without him).
· I went to the bank to deposit a check and I left the check at home but remembered to bring the filled out deposit slip. Genius.
· While showering last week I put face wash in my hair as shampoo. After I had already shampooed and conditioned my hair.
I know there are plenty others, but surprise!, I can’t think of them at the moment. Is this normal? I must just be so caught up in Babyland that I am clueless and spacey all the time.
