Lately, I feel like I’ve been channeling the scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz (a movie I’m pretty sure I’ve never seen in its entirety). I’ve been doing some pretty stupid stuff and it’s making me wonder if I have straw in my noggin. Here are just a few of my shining moments. I hope you find them humorous. I’m choosing to laugh, but maybe I should be concerned…
On Sunday, I was conversing with a parent about the upcoming girls sleepover. Since the mom wasn’t there to talk with me directly about helping with the sleepover, I gave my phone number and email address as a way to get in touch with me to discuss the details. Only, I couldn’t remember my phone number!!! Like an idiot with an audience I stood there apologizing. At one point I almost went to get Jeremy to help. Once I remembered my number, the parent didn’t seem too convinced that I knew what I was talking about. Can you blame him?
Last night as I was getting ready for bed I was doing my nightly routine of adding a throw blanket to my side of the bed. I like a little extra warmth and my warm blooded hubby doesn’t. As I was putting my blanket on the bed, I managed to knock over my water glass and spill it all over my side of the bed and the surrounding floor. Now that was one of those awesome moments that I watched in slow motion. I could see it happening and yet there was nothing I could do to stop it. There is nothing like dousing your bed right before you plan to get into it. Real smooth!
This morning in the shower I ended up putting facial cleanser in my hair like it was shampoo – never done that before. Don’t know what I was thinking there. Oh wait, I’m pretty sure I wasn’t thinking. I continued on in my morning routine and was checking my emails. I had an email waiting for me saying that I got the snack rotation for my Growth Group mixed up. Sure enough, I looked at my notes and saw that I misread them the night before. It’s bad when you can’t read what you wrote properly. It’s not like it was written in sloppy handwriting. I just can’t read.
So as you can see, I’m a bit brainless right now. As this cold drags on and I’m plagued by tiredness and a busy schedule, I’m wondering what is next? I keep surprising myself with all the random things I can pull off when I’m in a tired haze. Lucky for me, I have no plans for the rest of the evening and that is reassuring! My brain cells need some serious TLC before they really do resemble straw.
Oh, if I only had a brain!
Side Note – If you find my brain, please return it! I miss being a fully functioning member of society!
