I've hit a new low. Let me explain.
Tonight, Gina and I were talking about how our minds, mostly our memories, just don't work like they used to prior to having children. I frequently compare myself to Charlie, who through experimental surgery is able to increase his IQ only to have it sadly and quickly regress back to its original state. And once you know what your mind was capable of, it is easy to get frustrated when your thoughts always seem cloudy.
So my new low. Two of them today. This afternoon I realized my wedding ring was gone. I knew I had it on this morning and couldn't think where I'd left it. J said he saw me take it off in the kitchen when I was bathing Hayden this afternoon. I didn't believe him. I didn't even remember taking it off. And it was nowhere to be found. So after I sternly told Justin I would be pretty annoyed if I went through the garbage and he had it the whole time (sometimes he does that), we found it at the bottom of the trash bag. I don't know how in the world it got there. So it is now cleaned and in my ring box until I find my mind.
As I was starting this post I was thinking about how I have to make lists for simple things now. Simple things like 'Remember to e-mail Allison'. So I go look at my list. Indeed, it says 'Email Rebecca.' Rebecca. Rebecca who? Why? I don't know! Rebecca, if you look at this blog and are expecting an e-mail from me, please remind me why!!!
