I'm sure I must walk around in a stupor most of the time.  Today my DH comes in and asks me if I moved the hose when I watered the blueberries a couple of days ago.  No, I said.  DH said,  Was it strung out over the back yard?  I don't know, I guess so.  Long story short, he had moved the hose and wound it up on the hose reel with the nozzle on the end.  I had gone out and turned the water on, set the kitchen timer (so I wouldn't forget to turn it off) and let it run and turned it off.  All without noticing that it wasn't strung out and connected to the soaker hoses in the berries, like it had been all summer!  DUH!  The college educated airhead strikes again.

Yo-yo, don't feel bad.  I just had to call my daughter to ask her if it rained on Friday so I knew whether to turn the irrigation on.  I couldn't remember for the life of me!
 
Also, I remember turning on my pool to drain water one day and that was the last I remembered until I had an irrate neighbor come over complaining that I had flooded his yard.  I ran out the the pool and I had drained half the water out of it!  Isn't fibro fog fun?  I have a college education, too!  LOL

Just remember...we're doing the best we can with what we have left...and it varies from day to day.

We sure are trying our very best, but sometimes people catch us off guard. For example; just now, I was de-stressing from a hectic day at the flea market, trying to earn money for the necessary extras in life, like dog food.
Anyway, the flea market was relatively productive, I actually got away with my shirt still on, and came home. I ran the dogs, they'd been cooped up all day. I have a routine. Once dogs are walked I put on my jammies, make some warm milk, take a med if I need it, pop a samosa in the over to slow heat, check my email. Now, to put things in perspective, I have been setting up fpr and tearing down tables of my precious finds, since 7PM, Friday. Go, go, go, since. I am due for a collapse.
So anyway, along came the "kinda" maintenance guy for these houses. He had given me 7 or 8 pair of (mostly) nasty shoes, 2 months back. To sell. For him. I explained I don't sell for other people, but he speaks a foreign language, and the communication was difficult, and I ended up just kinda nodding my head to get away as I had to get going. He said "sell what you can, keep some if you want." These were bug ugly, nasty shoes. So I handed him $5 bucks on the spot, and went about my business. Well, here it is 2 months later, I am just gearing down from 60 hours of buy and sell. I have lugged big crates of "stuff" up and down flights of stairs in the pouring rain; Hurricane Danny, and along comes this guy, demanding shoes or $5. for a so called collection of some 10 odd pair of shoes, that a bargain shop wouldn't touch. So I get dressed, run around, find about 5 pair, give them, him. He says "don't ---- with me! Huh? I don't work for this person. Well, folks, I lost it. He caught me unawares, tired, frustration, did I mention tired. I blew my top. Not anything I wanted to do. It just came flying out of me, "how dare you show up here, unannounced, at suppertime, demanding things. I am tired. So off he goes muttering to himself, and I feel like a not nice person. But hey, c'mon guys, none of us are perfect, are we? Anyway, yesterday I asked my son 3 times for the missing samosas, which, buy the way, were sitting on the counter looking right at me. Well! Hopefully tomorrow will be a nice day.

Thanks everybody for your replies.  I helps to know you are not in the land  of fibro fog alone!

Could you imagine what a riot it would be if we lived in the same neighborhood?

Well, if we all lived in the same neighborhood, there would be some compassion.

Donnaeil, just thinking of all of us living in the same neighborhood has made me laugh!  We would have a great time and totally understand each other...even if we didn't talk to one another.  That sure would be a great support system, huh?
