I think I need to force myself to take a nap.

Yesterday, I shaved one leg twice (boy was it smooth!), leaving the other one, well, ummm, stubbly would be putting in nice.

Today, I opened the pantry to find a gallon of milk. I quickly decided it hadn't been out of the fridge too long (hopefully), and put it back. Maybe I better double check to see if the milk actually made it back into the fridge.

I've tried putting Ian's enormous diapers on poor little Laurel. I swear the look on her face said, "Are you crazy woman?"

I looked her squarely in the eyes and replied back, "Why yes, yes I AM! See what happens when you wake up Mama twice in the night."

Too many times today, I've gone into another room to do something and forgotten what it was. I hate that! Then I'm in a daze trying to figure out what I'm suppose to be doing.

Look out Laurel, as soon as Ian goes down for his nap, you and I have a date with the sofa.

Been there. You're talking to the woman who greeted a client at the door this morning with her shirt 2/3 unbuttoned...
(As you know, since I blogged about it already.)

That wandering into another room and forgetting why you're there? ALL. THE. TIME.

At first, I attributed it to small baby awake multiple times in the night.

Then it was three busy, distracting children and demands of homeschooling.

Now it's half-a-dozen toddlers.

But I'm wondering: what if this is who I really am? What if I'm destined to be a scatty old lady?

Oh, well. If I am, I may as well do it with panache. I'll start hiding my stash of booze under the couch cushions, shall I?

Uhhh...You don't need a nap! You're just getting OLD!!!!!!

Ha! Ha! Ha! Just Kidding! (Because that would mean that I'm old too. We can't have that!)

Hang in there girlie. If you need a hand, just give us a call.

Love ya!
