Where oh where did my little brain go? Where oh where could it be?

I hate feeling irresponsible, but I swear lately, my head is just not screwed on straight. I chalk it up to never having a set schedule, or the kids or that time of the month. Heck, I think once I blamed it on the stars alignment in the house of Scorpio. Whatever the reason. I feel that I am becoming one of "those" people. The ones that are always late, will always forget what they were suppose to bring, always frantic and a mess. That's me. As in "forgetting my daughter at school."

It seems that everyday is something new. A play date, a Dr. appointment, laundry, errands.... nothing is constant and my feeble brain just can't keep up. I want to be one of "those" people that, you know, have it all together, but heck, I have 'post it notes' reminding me to change my underwear.

My theory that I am working on my husband with, an IPhone. Because, you know, an IPhone would totally help me remember to get milk and bread at the store. It would program itself to ding-a-ling-a-ling every time I am to pick up a child from said engagements. It would open the mail, sweep the floors and have a cool gadget for flossing. I swear it is the answer to all my problems.

That, or I could shut the computer down every once in a while and focus on my life. That could work too, but I think I will go with the IPhone idea first...see how that works out for me. Worst comes to worst, I will never run out of "NOT ME MONDAY" material.

*Anyone else notice that my mind is resorted back to a preschooler and my posts are all nursery rhymes.

I'm soooo "that" person...and as long as I have 5 people to keep alive and well and on schedule...*Bwahahahahah-like I'm ever on schedule*...then I plan on being "that" person!

Sully said...

I am not late, but that doesn't mean my hair is brushed before I get there.

I used to be the totally organized person that had it all together. When I had kids...well no more of that "organized" stuff.

Now that they are 5 and 6 I am working on getting myself put back together. I started a planner with all of my appts and things. I have an alarm set on my cell that goes off so I don't forget the kids. Other than that people know to remind me if they want me to know something.

If you want someone to talk to your husband for you about how much you REALLY need that phone, let me know- I don't know the guy and I have no shame. HA!

My husband has the iPhone wanna-be, and I can't tell you how it has changed his life! He's not scatter-brained, just a little TOO easy going and forgets EVERYTHING! Now the thing goes off to remind him of every little things and he'll type our McDonalds order into it and no more forgotten sundaes!!! :) That alone with worth the $1000 phone bill each month.

I like your little nursery rhymes...but now it is stuck in my head! I feel like I too am turning into one of "those" people. If I don't write it down it doesn't get done..never thought about an iPhone helping, but I totally see how it could...I will have to try that angle with my husband!

I don't think I would be any better with the iphone. I am always going to be scatter brained. I just went back and read some of your posts that I missed. OMG the hair one was hilarious.. I was killing myself laughing and luckily no customers came up wanting coffee or they would have thought I was insane...or at least unprofessional.
I guess that will show me not to fall behind on my bloggy reading.

Beth said...

I TOTALLY need an iPhone too. Hopefully one with an app that will clean my bathroom. :)

Khadra said...

I am awful with remembering things. I have a Palm Centro (smart phone) and I have a scheduler as my main page so I always see what is up today, and then at the bottom I make myself lists...

right now it tells me it is my brother's birthday, I need laundry detergent and sweet and low.

It goes off at 2:20 everyday to remind me to pick up the kids, or else I might forget them too.

I love it. Good luck with convincing your husband. Oh and you can make it LOOK like you shut down the computer and got on with your life and just browse from your phone sometimes...hee hee!

Alicia said...

Yes..I agree..and IPhone will make it ALL better!!

heidi said...

I have this *tic* need to be on time to things. I get all cranky when I'm not and stressed out when I think I'm not going to be.

whereismymind said...

Oh wow. Sounds just like me. I so need an iPhone. Desperately. I told my husband I needed one and he responded with, "Why? You'd just lose it."

Lauren said...

I have lost my mind too! I completely forgot an OB appt the other day and I forgot we had guests coming into town last weekend until the day before they arrived! And both of those things were written in my planner! I suppose a planner isn't much help if I don't look at it regularly! Maybe I will try an iphone too!

sheila said...

Sorry but it gets worse as the kids get older. lol

M said...

LOL...

You know, until you get that iPhone you should check out the FREE cozi.com. Its a great little calendar that is super easy to use. Also, when you DO get the iPhone it will send you all your information directly to it. EVEN BETTER: you can program it to send your shopping list to Hubby's iPhone. Ha!

That Girl said...

you are too funny!
I gave you an award on my blog!

Crystal said...

Oh this problem is at this house. lol.. I think an iphone might just make it worse hehe..

Kameron said...

You totally need that phone! I have a Palm treo and it is my scheduler and so much more. I even set it to alarm 1 week before the person's birthday so i can remember to get and mail cards!

Tinika said...

Yep, I totally think the phone is what you need. I have set reminders for everything including making sure my children bathe. Because I forget if I don't. Seriously. So I hear you sister!

Melissa said...

So you'll have to let me know ~ Who sets all the appts and dates and to do's on this phone? Cause I would probably have a hard time with that! Good Luck!

The Woman said...

I start the day at 5am getting up an hour before anyone else to organize my day. Then by the end of the day I am asking where is my brain. lol

Rebekah said...

Wooo Whew, I know you're sayin'. I must admit, though, my brain has come back to normal- as normal as it was anyway- since I have my thyroid taken care of. Its nice to feel like me again (most days)
