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
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?
