This new home project while being a blessing, is really testing me in all areas of my life and sanity. I’m not complaining, I’m just sayin‘ (as my southern friends would say).
Take last week for example, I have to get out the door but I cannot find my cell phone…again.
Have you been there? Big Daddy says he doesn’t know why I even have one since:
a) I never have it with me
b.) In his opinion I never answer it
c) The reason I “never answer it” is because I forget to charge it so the battery dies so the phone doesn’t ring for me to answer it.
d) No one can leave me a voice mail message because I don’t check them so the voice mail is always full
e.) I’m always telling him I don’t know where my cell phone is.
So, as my grandmother used to say, I’m racing around like a chicken with my head cut off when my 6 year old son comes up to me.
Son: “Mommy. Mommy! Mommy?”
Chicken with her head cut off: “Not now.”
Son: “What’s wrong Mommy?”
Chicken with her head cut off: “Not. Now. I’m t-r-y-i-n-g to find my cell phone. I have to leave and I’m already late.”
Son: “Okay, but Mommy? Mommy, your cell phone is in your hand.”
Chicken with her head cut off: ??????
Now the hypochondriac in me says that I am coming down with Alzheimer’s. But I’m hoping I have a temporary case of the stupids. What’s the stupidest thing you’ve done this month?
