Momentary Lapse of Reason
Well, just like last year, I managed to miss the first day of the challenge. I don’t know why or how, but I can’t remember anything and I have been losing everything including my mind. I have lost my phone almost every day for the last four days. I can think of three times this month where I get out of my car, lug the kids out of their car seats and frantically look for my keys in the freezing cold so I can lock the car, only to realize the keys are in the ignition and the car is still running.
I forget medicines, diapers, appointments, grocery lists, and visitors.
Saturday afternoon, I walked out of a store with the cart in tow. I sidled up to my car, ready to unload my items, when I opened the door and realized someone had stolen my child’s car seat and replaced it with another one! “Who would do such a thing? This is crazy!” I thought. After a few seconds of a momentary lapse of reason, (no, it is not just a Pink Floyd album, it really happens), I discovered I had opened the car door to some stranger’s vehicle. So I did what any SANE person would do. I ran like HELL!
Is there a cure for this? Can someone help me? My husband thinks I’m flaky. My kids think I’m funny. My colleagues think I’m nuts. I think I need HELP.
