I've done lost my mind!


You know those mornings where you wake up and right from the bat you KNOW you're going to have a nutty day?

Well I slept through my alarm which is something I never do. NEVER! But thankfully I actually was woken up by the sweet Eden, who was calling me to ask me a question. She left a message on the machine and I went to go call her back on my cellphone....and this is where I lost my marbles.

Let me give you a little backstory first. Every afternoon, I go and pick up the kids from school and I always take a snack for them, I take juice and some crackers or apples or whatever. When I get back home, I throw out the empty wrappers and the plastic bags they were in, but far too often, I pop my cellphone in the same bag to make it easier while carrying backpacks and jackets and whatnot.

So I get to the kitchen.....are you with me still? *snicker*

I look at the counter where I usually leave the phone, and it's not there. So I check in my purse thinking I put it away and it's not there. Then the paranoia hits me, I do a quick mental check and realize that I may have thrown out the cellphone inside the plastic bag.

Next thing I know, it's 7am and I'm digging through my trash. DIS.GUS.TING! Keep laughing, because I hadn't even had coffee and was elbow deep in empty juice pouches, leftover cereal and other things that I can't even describe.

Then I hear it....a ring and I start digging faster and deeper. I'm surprised trash wasn't flying around the kitchen. The phone kept ringing and I kept digging.....until I stopped for a second and realized that the ringing was coming from my purse. Somehow when I first searched through it, I missed it. The cellphone was in the purse all along!

Here, take a kleenex and wipe the tears from your eyes, I can hear you all cackling from over here....and now that it's over, it's actually pretty funny. HAHAHAHAHAH

But it gets better because apparently I had one single marble left which I done lost right as I started typing this post.

After cleaning up the mess, taking a shower, and grabbing my coffee, I sat here at the laptop ready to check email and blogs etc....and I reach over and grab my cellphone and start moving it around (thinking it was my mouse). WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME? I was getting pretty irritated because the pointer wasn't moving at all, then I hear Jasmine's voice "Mommy, what are you doing with your cellphone?"

BUSTED! By my own child, in a moment of insanity! Folks, I'm only turning 35 years old, there is no excuse for these things happening LOL

Now I'm going to get kids ready for school and start my day, I'll leave you all laughing over here and here's a little bit of advice....next time you hear your cellphone ringing, make sure it's in your purse before you dive for the trash can.

That really is funny- I can just picture you using the cellphone as a mouse!!
You'll know you really lost it when you knit an egg with frosting on top!

Susanne said...

Digging through the trash only to find it in the purse you just looked through was funny, but using the phone as your mouse and getting upset because it wasn't working is downright hysterical. Thanks for the chuckle!

Thanks for the reminder I'm not the only one. This morning, I put my coffee into the microwave to reheat, got the liquid creamer out of the fridge, went to the microwave, took out the coffee, poured some creamer in, then put the creamer into the microwave and shut the door! I'm glad it occurred to me that's not where it belonged before it sat in there all day!

How wonderful that you can laugh at yourself Sandra.
We all have those days and you captured yours with such humor.
Thanks for the laugh!

ROFLOL!!! Still, it could be worse. I knew someone who dropped her car keys into a wheelie bin (one of these). She leaned in as far as she could to reach them ... and fell ... and stuck! Fortunately a neighbour came to her rescue when she yelled for help.
