Losing My Mind

Sure, we've all been guilty of walking into a room, stopping in our tracks, and thinking, Why did I just come in here?  I do it almost daily.  But have you ever been guilty of putting a load of wet clothes into the dryer, adding a fabric softener sheet, closing the door, and walking away without starting the dryer?  If not, you're doing better than me!  Luckily, I happened to realize it as I was halfway up the basement stairs earlier today.  If I  hadn't, I surely would have had some stinky clothes tomorrow!  I must confess, I've done it before and it's quite annoying.

I mentioned on my blog that the only Christmas gift I returned was an expensive pair of pajamas that I couldn't bring myself to sleep in.  Well, I only got that half right.  I somehow returned the top but not the pants.  "How can a person do that?" you might ask.  My only defense is that the material was really slippery and somehow the pants slid out of the box.  I found them behind a large Christmas present that was still in the living room.  I can only say, Wow, I'm dumb!  I am quite embarrassed to return to the store and offer my silly explanation.  I'm sure they thought that someone was trying to take them.

Feeling a little dopey today...

Oh, man. I did something incredibly ridiculous last night, similar to your dryer incident. Our dishwasher is not real high-end so we rinse the dishes REALLY well before we load it.

I can't believe I'm about to admit this.

I started the dishwasher in the afternoon, then before dinner had the kids set the table from it.

Only . . . I had forgotten to actually START the dishwasher. So, we ate of dishes that weren't really clean, just rinsed well. Discovered this when we went to unload the rest of the dishes. :(

I'm sure we're not the only moms who are this way, right?!
