I decided to start this thread because sometimes that old brain fog will hit and cause us to embarrass ourselves. smilewinkgrin blush
Because if we don't laugh at ourselves we will sit down and cry. cry
 
Here's my silly of the day. turn
 
I went to the frig to get the chocolate syrup out of the door. I reach for it- (I was looking!) and shut the door. As I turn to place it on the table I looked at it...NOT chocolate syrup! nono   It was teryriaki sauce!! Totally different looking bottle!!! shocked
 
I went back to the frig and very carefully picked up the chocolate syrup and put back the Sauce. My niece was watching me during this time and we had a good laugh over it. yeah

Hi Joy,

I missed a very important appointment this past Tuesday because I was moving through my day thinking it was Monday. I did not realize my mistake until late that evening when I was sitting at my desk. I happened to look at my calendar and realized that it was actually Tuesday!!!! Thankfully, the woman I was meeting with understood...she has Lupus, too. :)

I found a paper I was supposed to mail 15 days ago to my LTD. I called them and told them I had misplaced it and was mailing it today. She said there really wasn't a rush, but it would come in handy when my SSD money starts coming in later.

Hey Joy,

I was hanging out in the greenhouse today, listening to the rain and doing a little clipping. But as usually, I kept misplacing my snippers. They kept showing up in the craziest places....my bucket, in the compost and right in my pocket!!!

I was making earrings today for a wedding and started twisting the head pin thinking this is going so much easier than the other four I'd just made. I hold it up to admire it and noticed I'd forgotten to attach the post before doing the twisting! I had to destroy the earring in order to remake it. :P

We are a pair! I am having a much more clear-headed day today....which is good, since I am lesson planning for this coming week.

I'm glad I'm not teaching anymore. I don't think I could make a decent lesson plan now, my brain won't maintain a steady thought long enough.

Today I fell asleep in church for an hour! Thank goodness I was in the nursery listening to the sermon. No one was back there today to see me asleep. However I did hear a door open and close quickly when the usher came by to count me, I think. @@
I can't sit in the auditorium because of the perfumes and colonges everyone wears.

I guess I'll share what just happened to me tonight. I was coming home from the store and had to stop for a light. When I looked up at the street sign I freaked out. Even though I knew I lived somewhere close to that street I couldn't for the life of me remember where I was supposed to go. I almost started crying and then all of a sudden I realized that all I had to do was go straight. That was pretty scary especially since it was dark and I had left my cell phone at home. Don't think I am going out after dark without my cell phone or someone with me.

The joys of the fog.

That's why I have a GPS with me and my niece most of the time.

Don't you just love driving along and realized you'd forget your turn?

This morning my mother found a catbed I had put in the washer 5 days ago. I had forgot I was washing it. She didn't know when I had washed it and was wondering why it stank so much.

Not sure that reaching for a bottle and grabbing the wrong (even if you are looking) one has anything to do with Lupus Fog???? Lupus fog would be more like needing something in the refrigerator and then one second later you open the refrigerator door and immediately forget why you are in there for. Or how about sitting with someone for an hour talking about this or that and then the next day you see them and have completely forgotten about what you talked about or even who it was you were talking too. Now that is LUPUS FOG

Welcome, rhnicks.

I don't remember to clean the kitty potty until I smell it stinking. LOL!

I was trying to make coffee the other morning and couldn't remember how to fill it with water. It's on the other side of the kitchen from the sink... I was in a panic thinking "WHY would the coffee maker be so far away from the sink?! How do I make coffee with it all the way over here? I just want a cup of coffee for crying out loud!"

Just as I started to unplug the whole coffee maker to carry it over to the sink to fill it, I remembered the coffee pot** is typically used to fill the machine.

** I also just sat here for five minutes trying to think of what you call the "pitcher" thing that the coffee is dispensed into (coffee pot-- why was that so hard?)
