In which i’m absent minded


I find it interesting how I can be so very organized and yet so disorganized all at the same time.


For example, on my computer screen I have a bunch of screenshots. I just looked at them to see what they were and they are pictures of airline tickets that have been booked. That way when Keely asks me if I have any idea of when she’s coming home and what her flight is I can simply look at the picture on the computer screen.


I have to do this because I’m a bit OCD about my emails and I tend to clean them up so often that I accidentally delete important emails all the time. You’d think I’d learn but I never do.


Keely and Andie are also both going up to New York City for New Year’s and I took pictures of those tickets too. It helps to be prepared.


And yet, I constantly am losing things. I realized the other day that I had absolutely not idea where my watch has gone. I’ve had the damn thing for 20 years but in September I started wearing my FitBit and since I only can deal with one thing at a time on my wrist (and always on my left hand) I stopped wearing my watch.


That’s all good and well but now I have absolutely no idea where in the hell it is. If I haven’t worn it then it should be somewhere in my bathroom but I can’t find it. I think I might have worn it at Thanksgiving and then I might have taken it off to wash dishes but I can’t find it in the kitchen either.


Since my memory is shot and I can never find anything I’m in a bit of a quandary about where it could possibly be.


That is the sole reason that I never take my keys out of my car. If I do, then I can’t find them. I basically leave all my important stuff there so at least I know where it is. Uggghhh…my fish are staring at me. Did I remember to feed them?


I think I did because my iPad isn’t in here. Each morning I have to feed them because I charge my iPad in the office so if I want my iPad, and I always do, then I have to remember the fish. Isn’t that clever?


So the point of all this was I’m incredibly smart and incredibly stupid and absent minded all in the same brain. Kevin pointed out that I was also very observant and yet appallingly unobservant all at the same time too so basically I have no consistency.


Well this rambling post is over. How the hell do I have any readers???

    Yep, second what Sheri said, all of your posts ARE interesting, even when you’re “whining with Lynn” we’re all probably going through a lot of the same sort of idiotic problems you are, so you’re totally relateable.

    Lately for me? It’s been all the housework, the cooking, the doing dishes, the feeding the cats (over and over and over, and since I have ONE that’s got to be really close to that Rainbow bridge at approximately sixteen, he’s especially annoying because he FORGETS that I JUST would have fed him, even if it’s only been five minutes, and he’s skinny as a rail and we really DON’T have the money to bring him to the vet to get either checked out or put down, we just have this incredibly demented cat and two other needy ones). My husband likes to say, we’re “Catstipated”…

    But yeah, must be the winter doldrums because I just want to “check out” on everyone and everything right now, but I can’t because we all have our roles in the house and the inside cleaning and upkeep, pets and laundry are my tasks…

    NOPE you’re never boring, you don’t even ramble, now THIS was a ramble..

    Happy Holidays to Lynn AND her other blog stalkers!
