There are some days where I look at the tasks ahead of me and think, “I can do this!” Today is not one of those days.
We are at the place in between here and there. Something’s are starting up – yay school! But something’s aren’t. Trying to get all my ducks in a row is causing my head to feel foggy and like nothing is in my grasp. This morning while happily driving to the gym I realized Noah’s first gymnastics class was yesterday and we were a no show.
“Please excuse Noah from gymnastics YESTERDAY because his mom is a scatterbrain nut and forgot all about it.”
Every year before classes and school start up, I sharpen my pencil and put together my color coded spreadsheet of where to be and when I make sure to put everything into my calendar fearing the concept of depending on my brain to remember. However most of the time, I never even have to look at my calendar because I really do know what’s going on.
Is it the fact that I now really have 3 kids with 3 totally different lives? Is it because I over scheduled Gabby so much that my brain literally can’t handle any more input? Is it that my husband will be gone for a total of 4 out of 5 weeks? And that week he was home we went on vacation which might have propelled me kids back to school on the fumes of my frustration of having to put up with my 3 kids for an entire week without any break – doh!
Whatever it is, I think you might have to come visit me in the looney bin. Please don’t expect me to remember the slightest detail or any other information. At this point, I’m just trying to make it through the day and wind up where I’m supposed to be through it all!!!!
