Can you imagine? a lump of unclothed wobbly blubber on the bus to work...
I swear I'm losing my mind.
Or at least that part of it that reminds me to put my shoes on in the morning.
I regularly have those moments when I go to another room and have no idea why.
Seniors moment anyone?
I'll do the washing and forget to scoop the bathmat off the floor and toss it in with the towels.
Three weeks running now.
I may have to just toss it altogether and get a new one.
I'll put the kettle on, hang a teabag in the mug, then totally forget to make the tea.
Or I'll walk to the shop specifically for bread and come home with milk, chocolate, the paper...no bread!
Stuff like that.
Not a big problem....
But recently, I've been forgetting more important things such as my watch, my mobile phone....
On the way to work, I'll be out the door, locking it behind me, and realise that my watch is still inside.
Or my bottle of water.... or my book that I purposefully left out of my bag so that I can read it on the bus....
Easy enough to fix, just unlock the door again.....grab the missing item.
Last week, I was just beginning to walk down the path when I saw that I had the wrong shoes on.
White weekend sneakers instead of black work sneakers.
Well, at least I had shoes on!
Yesterday, I walked to the shop for bread and actually came home with bread!!
Okay, I wrote myself a note with "BREAD" on it...the plan was to make my sandwich after dinner, then put it in the fridge right beside the juice so I'd see it this morning and grab it, toss it in my bag, and not have to buy something to eat before my shift started.
The plan failed, as plans often do.
I got up with plenty of time to spare, used last night's left overs to cook a veggie omelette (fritatta) for breakfast, watched MacGyver, using the ad breaks to do things like make the bed, dry the shower, wash the frypan and plate.
Then I remembered that I wanted to post christmas cards this morning and the line in the Post Office was likely to be long, so if I didn't want to be late for work, I'd better get there a little earlier.
Turned off the TV, out the door, locked it behind me, made the earlier bus and got to the Post Office to find there was no line at all ahead of me.
I bought my stamps, posted my cards and went to work.
Where I had to buy something to eat before my shift started.
My sandwich? Still in the fridge beside the juice.
Even worse? I'd forgotten my watch as well.
Two things in one day.
If this keeps up I may just forget to get out of bed by next week.
I know what's caused at least part of this.
Divorce and moving house.
Without the "walking on eggshells" stress, without the worry of "how the heck am I going to manage the rent if it goes up?", I'm much more relaxed.
So I've become a little slack about things, not feeling the need to be on top of everything all the time.
And it's making me a little forgetful.....
What am I doing in the kitchen?
