my brain...where has it gone?

I had a crazy-busy morning...
I dropped Nick off at the golf course, went to buy
a few things I forgot at WM yesterday,
went to the grocery store to buy the things
I couldn't get at WM,
stopped by our local peach orchard to buy
peaches and tomatoes.

Got home,
put groceries away and threw together
some lunch for Lucy.

Whew.

Just a little while later, Brenden said,

"Ummm, Mom, what's Lucy eating??"

Me,
"Turkey and chips, why?"

Bren,
"Her turkey is....blue."

What??!

Well, it sure is.
I tried to feed my baby girl moldy, blue turkey.



And if that isn't enough to prove that my brain is
on half-a-cell...

I was on the phone with my friend Angela,
while playing with Lucy in her room.

All of a sudden the door bell rang.

By the time I got off the phone & out of Lucy's room and
to the door,
I saw a notice stuck to our door as the F*d Ex guy was
driving away.

I dashed out the door, flailing my arms
frantically and running down
my driveway trying to get his attention.

Because you see,
the thought of NOT getting whatever it
was he was here to deliver,
just made me crazy!

He finally saw me....
and with a look of sheer terror on his face,
he rolled his window down.

Me,
"I'm here, I'm here!! Do you have a package for me?!"

FX guy,
"Ummm, yes ma'am...I left it on your porch."

Me,
"Oh. *giggle, giggle* Ok, thank you."

Humiliation rushing.

And so he did....left it right there, smack by my door.
It's a wonder I didn't trip over it.

My brain, where has it gone?
Ship it back to me if you find it, would you?
You might want to use UPS.

Don't you remember that it's the adoption "pregnancy" that zaps your brain cells.
It's true. I'm sure there must be some scientific study out there somewhere....

That is hilarious!! I tried not to laugh to loudly since all the kiddos are finally sleeping. What a great mental picture. :)

ok Too funny! I totally laughed at the thought of you running down the Fedex guy.! Still laughing. I was thinking when I was reading, "Don't they ususally just leave the package on the front step or at the neighbors is you are not home." But I kept reading anyway. I am glad that I did cause I really got a good laugh. :)
You're fun!
