this morning i couldn’t find my cell phone.

looked everwhere.

the last time i had it, it was in my lap in the car.

went out to my car, there it had sat in the driver seat all friggin night. i’d forgotten i had it in my lap while driving home.

good thing it didn’t fall into the street.

good thing no one broke into my car to get it.

my man just told me last night that he would not be on chat today because he’s not at work today (2 days off! go him!).

i didn’t remember and started messaging him at work. i just remembered that he’s not logged into chat today.

i was on my way to make lunch when i remembered that i was supposed to take out the bag of food recycles this morning. I’d set the recyles in the bag and set the bag at the door of the kitchen on the way to the front door just this morning.

And i STILL forgot.

i also forgot i was supposed to work 7am on friday til my boss just reminded the team.
i am now setting a calendar popup for end of day thursday to remind myself again.


I’ve been emailing myself every time I have an episode of remembering that I’d forgotten something. I still have post-it notes all over the house and in my pockets to remind me of things.

I want so badly to make time to research forgetfulness, and to research brain injury in depth. I have no time til Sunday.


In other news, george pains last night while eating dinner. Pain radiating down my legs to my knees, feels like soft tissue pain. Can’t explain better than that. Happens every month right before george. And the uterine cramps – mild to moderate. Not ovarian. Uterine.

And my forehead and temples are broken out in a pile of zits again – likely because I’ve been overdoing it on chocolate again, and corn syrup-ladden foods. I know I’ve violated my own rule of never eating corn syrup again. I’m in major craving/dietary self destructive mode just before george. He’s due by next Wednesday.
