Brain Transplant

For the past couple of weeks I have come up with tons of ideas for blog posts and I though I would jot them all down so that I could space them out over time. Some of them were really great ideas and I got exited at just the thought of sharing about some things. I needed to organize the little time that I have and writing down my ideas would have been a great way to do this, I just choose one everyday and write to my hearts content. Well a great idea until the same problem I had been dealing with for the past few months came and got in my way, AGAIN! A problem I cant seem to avoid, no matter how hard I try.

As I told you in my Forget... what was I going to say now? post, for months now I seem to lose every single thing, whether it be keys, phone and and even my purse. Most people forget things and are fine with it. What bothers me is that I don't only lose my valuables, I actually don't have any recollection of how and where I lose them. I lost my purse with my ATM card in, in August and have spent countless hours trying to trace my steps on that day, to no avail. I know that my stress levels have seriously increased over the past two weeks, since I have to run a house, a family, a marriage, a full time job, a blog, Photography...etc etc etc...and you know life loves to throw a spanner in the works when we are running ragged already, but can I really only blame the stress now, or am I just overworking myself?

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
To think, I love this movie!
The past few days has been the Pitt's, and unfortunately I am considering going to see a specialist because of it... or maybe just take a spar day, who has the money for a specialist anyway.

I have a very good friend that I chat to almost daily. For weeks now we have been discussing her birthday party as I was supposed to help her with invites. We had not spoken the whole of last week and I actually completely forgot that Saturday was the day - sorry C! On Saturday morning, I lay in bed and all of a sudden it jumped out at me... It was her birthday, and she was having a white party!!! I called her to wish her, and felt better that I had not completely forgotten. Now all I had to do was go buy something white to wear, as you know, fat people cant wear white, so I did not own anything in it.
Things seemed to be going on track until we had to deal the the lazy and stupid South African taxi's (story for another day) and had to get done fast because we got home sooo late. I had no directions to the party and had a vague idea where the party venue was. So we drove around for about 45 minutes trying to find the place and then I remembered - My phone has a map! We ended up arriving at the party, a WHOLE hour late and I felt like a dweeb!!!

So Saturday was a good day, I mean I knew it was Saturday and although last minute, remembered my friends birthday...so all in all, good, right?

This morning on my way to work I tweeted about it being a Wednesday, soo close to Friday. All comfy about my day, sitting and relaxing outside our work building, it hit me, I was supposed to go with Habitat for Humanity to build a house for the less fortunate this morning and it was already 10am! I freaked and tried calling my colleague to apologise. Naturally her phone was off, of course, they were busy. I come sit at my desk and the very same colleague I had called earlier comes to talk to me. My first question was " why are you not the the Build Blitz?" She responds "That's on Wednesday", I stare at her curiously and utter "but today is Wednesday?" she looks at me with a peculiar expression and says, "No today is Tuesday."

So now I am forgetting WHOLE DARN DAYS!!

The strange thing is that I mentioned it to a few people and not one of them bothered to correct me. Well it still feels like Wednesday to me, so much so that I nearly posted a Wordless/ Wordfull Wednesday post today.

Is there hope for this brain of mine yet.... what am I going to forget next?

I am slightly weirded out by this mornings events though, so have decided to try and forget to forget. . .ha
