Tidbits of my day

I got to work this morning after spending 10 minutes looking for my car keys that were in my purse the whole time and was talking to my coworker when the conversation got side-tracked for a second and I totally forgot was I was talking about.

Yesterday on the way to dance for Ashley, I forgot the dance bag that holds her ballet shoes and tap shoes. This after forgetting her cheer shoes last Saturday.

What is wrong with me?

On the way to school with Audrey, she was singing:

"Trick or treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat; if you don't, I don't care, I'll pull down your underwear".

Which was followed up with:
"But first I would have to pull down your pants, right Mommy?"

The conversation with my coworker was about Patrick Swayze and pancreatic cancer. See, her Mom died 4 years ago from pancreatic cancer. It was quick, only a few months after being diagnosed, but a very painful death for her Mom. And 3 weeks ago? Her Dad was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Life sometimes hits you hard, really hard.

My last few weeks have been that way too; very side tracked and scatter brained. I've had two close call almost (but not thank god!) car accidents in less than 24hours! That right there is enough to wake you up.

Sorry to hear about your co-worker. Cancer sucks ass big time.

One of my close friends has pancreatic cancer, the very same that Steve Jobs has. Sigh.

On a sweet note, I am totally teaching my kids the Halloween Diddy. I had forgotten about it. Thanks for reminding me.

I've been far, far more scatter brained and side tracked than I care to admit.

SO SO SO sad about your co-worker and her family. Made my heart ache to read that.

My memory really tanked when I went thru perio menopause. I think because my sleep cycle was interrupted so much.
