Yes it is official...I have lost my mind and I am not even going to look for it.
"Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most."
"The waist is a terrible thing to mind.The mind is a terrible thing to waste."
“Did you ever walk into a room and forget why you walked in? I think that's how dogs spend their lives”
“My presence of mind is frequently absent.”
“Life must go on; I forget just why.”
“Did you ever stop to think, and forget to start again?”
“To want to forget something is to think of it”
“Sometimes life seems like a dream, especially when I look down and see that I forgot to put on my pants"
I have to joke about the fact that I am completely losing my mind. I have no idea when it started but I am going to blame it on the moment I found out I was pregnant with my first child. After all my mother told me for years that my sister and I were making her lose her mind ?!?!?
In the last week I have lost my keys...left my cell phone in a restaurant...left Noah in a store (again)...locked the cat outside and wandered in to talk to Hondo only to have absolutely NO idea what the heck I wanted to say! I believe all joking aside he is wondering what the heck is going on with me lol. When he sees me wandering through the house his first question now is "What are you looking for?"
Suffice it to say I am fully in summer mode. I do not have to think too hard...I do not have to dress if I do not want to...and if I do dress I can wear whatever the heck I want. I have not had to make life or death decisions...no one is expecting me to say anything brilliant...and if I forget to brush my teeth until 1230 pm who cares?
I think that subconsciously I have started to blog to remember the days and memories that I knew I would forget.
I seriously have to get it together...I have to be back to work in less than one week...my boss didn't promise to have me for better or for worse, pretty sure he expects a little more out of me...and I talk with parents and staff all day so I have to remember to brush and floss .
I love summer and that I have been afforded the opportunity to relax to the point of being comatose! I also love the following quote about forgetting.
“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
It may never be easy but it will always be worth it.
