I am so unorganized, such a procrastinator

I am the definition of absent minded

I have wondered if its genetics because my mom is the same way

It was a daily occurance in our house growing up... searching for that missing shoe, or the set of keys that ran away

Do you think there is a "Lose your own head if it wasn't screwed on" gene? If so, I think my mom passed it down to me.

I can't tell you how many times I have lost my keys, or locked them in the car

How many times I have locked myself out of the house... having to balance on top of garbage cans to shimmy through an open window

How many cells phones have vanished into thin air

How many pairs of shoes... that are no longer pairs.

Can a dryer really eat socks? Cause if it can, mine has eaten all of the matching ones

So we are left with 1 red and 1 black, or 1 long and 1 short.

Honestly I don't even bother to match them anymore, they are in a huge basket in my closet.

If Kaden can find 2 that fit him without holes ... I call it success!

I often contemplate throwing them all out and just starting over

I have forgotten groceries in my trunk

Gone all day with makeup on just 1 eye

I have driven almost all the way to work and then realized I still had a sleeping baby in the back seat.

Mornings are like scavenger hunts looking for backpacks, purses and homework

We are always oversleeping, running late

"put your shoes on and brush your hair in the car" kind of late

take the baby to the sitter in his jammies kind of late

Too bad I forget to send him actual clothes half the time.

Thank god Kaden does his homework on his own and his school serves breakfast... or we'd be in real trouble

Then I throw the kids out of the car in my hurry to make it on time to work

"tuck and roll"

just kidding... sort of

My husband entrusts me with all of our finances

Yes, me.

I have tried different systems, online bill pay, spreadsheets, email reminders

It all seems to work pretty well, until I get that call...

"Um honey, did you pay the electric bill,...our power has been shut off!"

Ok, that has never happened...

but I have gotten a few "friendly" reminders

This is your 3rd reminder and we are going to take your 1st born if you don't pay us"

I usually remember to pay then. :)

So from now on, I am going to try to remember to be more organzied, to prepare things ahead of time, to not push Snooze on my alarm clock 57 times before I actually get out of bed.

I think that this would make my husband very happy.

But, what if I forget to remember?


  1. I am not as bad as you! If you are looking for something, it can be right in front of your face and you will yell "MOM, I can't find it!" Don't even blame this on me. I think I picked it up from you.
    Love Mom

  2. Hahahahaha. I have days like that all the time. It's even worse now that I'm home, because I don't know the date 1/2 the time. Try remembering doc appts, school appts, etc when you don't even know what day of the month it is. And I only know what month it is because my kids like telling me when we are in a new one LOL.
