...I really miss it! I don't know what it is lately. I enter a room and can't remember why I went there, I open Internet Explorer because I intend to browse to a website and can't remember what site I was going to look at, and here's the kicker, I have recently been calling my son by the dog's name. Not good. I expected these things to happen to me quite a lot later in life. Not now. Not at thirty-something. (Did you really think I'd say my age? Okay, okay...it's 35, but that's not old, right?)
Anyway, a major area of my life that suffers because of this constant forgetfulness is my blogging. Let me explain...I wake up in the morning. (That's a good thing). My mind is fresh. I'm well rested (usually, unless a certain 5 year old has decided to crawl into bed at 1am, taking up as much of the bed as if he were a 6' 8" man weighing 400 pounds...but that's another post altogether). I have a few quiet moments to myself before life really takes over. Here's the thing...in the shower, as I put on my make-up, even as I drive to work, I have these GREAT blog ideas. They're witty, they're clever, they're informational, they're whatever a good blog post is supposed to be. However, by the time I park my car and get in front of my computer, the thoughts have COMPLETELY vanished. Not just that I can't remember the exact words I wanted to use, but I'm talking gone, see ya, adios amigos. And thus, you are left to read posts like this one. My apologies. Blame it on the brain.
