We’ve known each other for quite some time and I have a small request….
I’d like my brain back please.
It’s really become apparent that I have lost a significant part of my brain power. And since you are my creator, I feel like you have the ability to make this happen for me.
Just today, I was driving along, happy as can be because I dropped Jordan at school on time and managed to get the twins both dressed complete with diaper bag prepped for their OT appointment. I EVEN had a hot cup of coffee ready to go in the travel mug.
All very timely….SCORE for Mommy!
As I wave goodbye to my big brave Kindergartener and head out to get on the highway, I’m marveling at how “together” I seem to have things today.
my minivan begins to slow….and sputter……..and finally, it dies.
That’s right….dies. On the highway, at a major merging point.
Lets not forget I currently live in Hawaii….and that beautiful, breathtaking Hawaiian sun is at it’s finest today.
My wardrobe choice for the day….jeans, black top, black flats – no, not the shorts, tank top and flip-flops that I normally wear…it’s laundry day. So….yeah….I’m feeling the burn. But hey, I looked totally cute for that Emergency Roadside service!
How did I let this happen?
You see God, hard boiled eggs don’t taste so great when they’re charred due to forgetting them on the stove. Jordan really isn’t a fan of being left at school way beyond the normal pickup time. And those crocodile tears that she shed last Friday because I forgot to put her Jamba Juice fundraiser money in her backpack….heartbreaking.
I’m seriously going to start losing friends because I rarely remember our planned get togethers unless they remind me repeatedly and with multiple forms of communication. Thank goodness for facebook Birthday reminders because I would really be dropped from the friend list!
I completely understand that I need to be accountable, but this is getting ridiculous. So…..if you could just make an exception in your policy of free will and all….
I know I should be able to figure this out, but your intervention is obviously needed.
Thanks in advance.
~~~~~A quick open letter to Honda~~~~~~~
The little yellow circle light, the size of an eraser head, you know the one that lets us know we’re out of gas….NOT EFFECTIVE. Please add bells and whistles in future models. Maybe one of those really friendly OnStar-type services could call me….repeatedly…..until I fill up. I don’t know…something? And if you have an add-on kit for those of us with the minivan already, that would be awesome. Thanks.
That is all.
