I'll take a brain please.


Today I have been a little... er... forgetful.

I'll blame night-owling it up last night combined with an early morning wake-up call from the Blakester, who doesn't respond to a groaning "it's tooooo early, get back in beeeedddd" the same way my older two do. Darn it. 

Let me give you some examples:

1. My sister invited me to meet her at the park so our kids could play in the water sprinklers and I said I'd like to but I'd give her a call after running some errands to see if she was still there. Then I forgot to call.

2. When I remembered that I'd forgotten (all is not lost at least) I decided to send her a text, was interrupted from sending it by a phone call, and forgot to go back and hit send. (Perhaps all is lost...)

I'll tell you right now that it's not easy to put up with a sister like me. It takes patience, know-how, and a general tolerance for repeated acts of spaciness. Also, cute accessories to borrow. Oh, and some prime baking skilz to appease my sweet tooth!

3. After coming home with groceries in the car, unloading an exceedingly cranky toddler, and being inside for about 3 1/2 hours I remembered the groceries were STILL IN THE CAR DARN IT ALL!!!

At this point I decided: hot dogs it is! for dinner tonight. I can't trust myself with anything more complicated.


  1. It just so happens that after being your sister for the past 30 years, I have got the whole "patient, know-how, tolerance for repeated acts of spaciness" act DOWN. And I made raspberry coconut bars today for you to come try. Consider the sweet tooth appeased.

    Bribing you with goodies usually works to clear your mind from the fog of forgetfulness. As your profile so plainly states, you never do turn down a dessert!

  2. It is true. You are SURE to receive a visit from me today.
