Absent minded

When it comes to remembering, I fail miserably. I am the queen of misplacing and forgetting all sorts of things. I could always blame this short coming on the fact that I have four kids, but truth be told, I was this way before they came along. Maybe they have contributed to the fact that it has gotten worse, but this characteristic runs in the family and has been passed down. There is just to much supporting evidence.

I am always being told how I am so much like my Grandma. One time she was complaining of how bad her new boots hurt her feet, she had worn them on the wrong feet the entire day! When her kids were little, in the car, she couldn't get the backseat window to go up, that's because there was a head in it. I did this exact same thing about a month ago, Jon still reminds me how I choked him with the window. Her cat was tossed into her screen door numerous times! And the stories go on! My Grandma was just the cutest thing, and it is the biggest compliment to me that I resemble her, love her so much!!!

I just love this picture of my Grandma and Aunt Jennie, such beautiful ladies!! My mom is always telling me how much I remind her of my Aunt Jennie. Again, a huge compliment! What would the world be like without fun, crazy ladies, it would be just plain boring!

I know Erik is thankful for all the spiciness I bring to his life, I don't mean to, things just happen! He knew what he was in for, it's not like it caught him by surprise. He opted for this carnival ride. There were so many clues when we were dating. One example is when we lost our keys in the grass, at night, after the fireworks on the Fourth of July. The first thing I said was, "how fun, now we get to find them!" He was not happy at first, but we did find them, and while we hunted on our hands and knees in the dark, with no flashlight, we laughed and made a fun memory! One time we got in a big fight and I got so mad I threw a recliner at him, one of the many incidences for which he gave me the name, "Wild Banshee." It's funny because I am finally seeing what he deals with first hand through my Ella. It has been passed down yet again to another generation. I am already praying for her husband!

So I don't use my cellphone that much on the weekend, the last time I had used it was Friday morning. I just assumed it was next to my bed were I plug it in to charge. I needed to call down to the hardware store yesterday to find out their hours and I realized my phone was gone. I searched everywhere and I had no clue where it might be. I used Erik's phone and gave myself a call. I am very glad that it still had a charge, otherwise this morning it would of been resting in it's new home, at the dump.

I have absolutely no clue how it ended up in the garbage!

You will notice when reading my blog, this topic of absent mindedness will come up often, it's just a way of life for me!
