Really? Pregnancy brain is something people really experience? I think I had my first taste of it yesterday. Sunday night I was having dinner with my in-laws and family friend Craig Pridemore. Craig is running for state auditor. Among other things, we were talking about his campaign kick-off that was taking place the very next night - of course were we all planning on going. Upon departing from dinner I said to Craig, "See you tomorrow night."
And then there's Monday... it comes right after Sunday, right? As my day of subbing was coming to a close, I was thinking about what to make for dinner (a common occurrence around 3:00pm). I came home, let Scuba into the backyard, and went to the store for some ingredients. I decided on nachos, which I'm pretty sure is nothing we've made for dinner before - this tells you I was giving some serious thought to dinner... wanting to get creative and do something different. I came home, soaked some black beans, started thawing the ground round, and a made a snack. I then changed into a tank-top and shorts, set up my lounge chair, and went to soak up some sun.
About this time I should have been thinking about getting ready to walk downtown to meet Doug for the kick-off event (it was starting at 5:30). However, what I was thinking about was watering the garden as soon as the sun was low enough to shade it... all while enjoying my snack and iced grape Gatorade. Needless to say, I finished my snack, waited for the garden to be shaded, and spent some time watering the garden along with the entire back yard. When I came back into the house, there was a text from Doug - it was 5:15. While he was wondering when I was going to be there, I was wondering when I told him I was walking to his office to walk home with him (I do this often, but I didn't remember telling him I'd walk with him yesterday). As I was about to text him, he called. Of course I asked, "When did I tell you I was walking to your office?" His reply, "We're going to Craig's kick-off, remember?"
Totally a "duh" moment. I felt pretty silly.
