Things that prove my brain is broken

  • I was searching for a part for my coffeepot yesterday morning and couldn't find it. After a minute I realized the part was in my hand

  • Searched for a netflix movie longer than was necessary because I swore I saw it on the coffee table. Couldn't locate it. Found it in that day's mail as it had just arrived. Who knows what I saw on the coffee table. Possibly a ghost movie. Someone call TAPS

  • Returned a netflix movie without the inner sleeve. Which I had in my hand while I packed up the disc. Let's hope they can sort out that I'm returning disc 3 of Mad Men Season 2 and not some other customer.

  • Twice packed up bottles so I wouldn't have to suffer through breastfeeding in public and twice, TWICE, forgot the bottle on the kitchen counter. And of course each time the damn kid got hungry and forced me to feed him. Call me a prude, but I hate breastfeeding in public.

  • Worked on another blog post for the past three days whenever I could steal a minute of time for the computer and then, on the fourth day, totally forgot the point of the post and decided to delete it. I should have just ended it by rambling on aimlessly but I didn't. You are so welcome.

  • Totally forgot that the dining group I am part of was supposed to meet tonight. At least everyone else in the group forgot as well. I have a valid excuse for forgetting, what's your excuse slackers?!? Too busy with your jobs and child free lives? (kidding, totally kidding. Please don't kick me out of the group. I like food.)

  • Bought 8 six packs of beer, 2 bottles of red wine, 2 bottles of white, 2 bottle of sparkling rose, and 4 22oz bottle of beer because I haven't had alcohol in a really long time. Well, since weekend before last. But prior to that it was forever ago. Man, I forgot how much I like beer. And wine. And sparkling beverages. mmmm, booze.


    1. I totally support a woman's right to breastfeed pubic, but I hated doing it too. Do you at least have a Bebe a Lait cover? Good place to nurse while out if you can't find a parent's room: handicap dressing room at any store that has seats in the dressing room.

    2. Oooh, do you know what you should try? Cava Noir. It is delightful. I'm thinking of having it at my wedding.

    3. Just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your honesty about BF'ing in public. You don't hear that just any old day. And I've always thought that if I was in that situation - not gonna happen, but, you know, if - I'd feel the same.

    4. Taking care of an infant totally sucks about 95 percent of the time, even when you love that infant more than anything else in the whole world. I ain't never doin it again.

    5. I am always proud of people who breastfeed in public. That being said I can see how it's hard when we're surrounded by asshats.
      And the mommy brain? It stays, for a while. I've found it gets worse with the next pregnancy.

    6. 1) Get that thing Michelle Duggar has.

      2) Did you buy that all in one trip? Because I went shopping for wine for book club last week and bought 3 bottles at once and felt like I was being JUDGED.

    7. What Chez Shoes says. I love how the pro BF contingent loves to make BFrs feel bad about not being comfortable doing it in public.
