"Of all the things I've lost, its my mind I miss the most"- this saying has been hanging in my mothers kitchen for as long as I remember! I've always liked it, but up until recently, I never truly appreciated it!
My Missing Pieces, (the Crazy Hip Bloggers Write out loud topic) is my mind.. or brain cells for that matter.
It is a chain reaction, starting in the womb. After four children and approximaetly two and a half years without getting more than a few hours of sleep my brain is shot! It causes me to call my children by each others names, to move into a room and forget what I was doing in there in the first place, and even forget to pull something out for dinner more than 2x a week.
The chain reactions follows: "whats the word for that thing that is in your room that you sleep in? - yeah Bed, thats right! well go and vacumm it. I mean make it! Did anyone put Sawyer out on her leash? Please pack your suitcases for school, we only have 15 hours to get out the door!!
All of this before 9am!
There are other things that go missing too: my sense of humor, appointments, whole boxes of Oreo cookies and my sex drive.
So yes, I miss it...and my husband does too!
