I have disappeared for a while. School has been keeping me busy with finals and the hubby took me on a little mini vaca. I hope all of you are having a ton of good days!!
Well, I have a pretty funny story. (Well, funny to me! We all have to find something to laugh about
!) I was driving home from a friends house the other day.....in the "fog." I didn't realize things were quite as foggy as they were or perhaps I would have never gotten behind the wheel. I was driving fine.....maintaining lane and speed and following the laws, but every 2 seconds I had no idea WHERE I was going. I would think to myself, "where am I?" Then, I would pass an exit sign on the interstate and say "oh, yeah... I'm headed to pick Ben up from school!" Then, by the time the sign passed by, I forgot where I was and where I was going again! I would start the process of figuring it out all over again. I made it safely and on time, but I just had to laugh at myself through the frustration. In the last 2 weeks my fog has become so dense I spend most of the time walking in circles and asking my husband what I am doing. He laughs and thinks it is kinda cute, but I am sure it will start to frustrate him too soon enough. If I have something in my hand, I will sit it somewhere weird and lose it. If I am having a conversation, I will lose my thought in the middle of the sentence. If my focus shifts from one thing to another in thought by accident(which happens often), I am unable to remember the important thing I was thinking of first. I told Ben I was going to have to be put in a home in a few weeks because I wasn't even going to know my name. Of course, he laughs, and says, "that's entirely possible!" Atleast, I can amuse myself with the faults of my short term memory! Hope I could amuse you guys for a bit too!!
Gentle hugs & Lots of Laughter,
