Brain Fart

I'm not sure how this happens but, this is not the first time. I've "misread" my schedule. A class that I've been "thinking about" getting ready for (because, in my mind, it was next week), is suddenly barreling down upon me.

My trusty "cookie assistant" (the BFF) knew it was this Saturday. My mother in Louisiana knew it was this Saturday. The community ed scheduler knew it was this week. She told me how impressed she was that we filled a class the first time it appeared on the schedule when I saw her on Tuesday.

But for some reason, none of that registered in my brain. I was lollygagging home from the creek this morning, taking mental notes: Visa bill due 21st, go to B of A to pay that. Pay Discover on the 25th...Wait..there's something on the 22nd...yes, cookie class. That's the Saturday after Thanksgiving... it's not, isn't today the 20th??? OH. MY. GOD!!!!! Cookie class is in TWO days and I haven't bought vases or flowers or started baking or prepping kits??? Oh crap!

Needless to say, I'm kinda busy and since I figured out last weekend that no one comments when I'm gone, I'm just going to put up some photos and hide the keyboard from Mabel. And I'll be a big girl. There's no need to comment... But - feel free to chat amongst yourselves.

I understand completely how these things can happen. I missed my grandson's birthday this year, not because I forgot it, but because I didn't realize that date had already come and gone. My sister asked me how old he is, and I said, "He'll be 19 on the...Oh.My.God! What day is this?"

Have fun in the cookie class.

Holly: I do that all the time. I actually lose track of what day it is. It's crazy since I have classes on Mon. and Wed, yoga on Mon., Tues, and Thurs. I'm also getting forgetful. And let's not talk about my English, it's gone down the tubes since our move to Korea.

Just because I don't always comment doesn't mean I don't come by to visit everyday! I actually loved your Buenos Aires post but had other things on my mind. ;) Carmon
