Menopause SUCKS. While I may have the hot flashes somewhat under control, my memory is not what it used to be. And the worst part about it is that I'm really not THAT old... I had to undergo a complete hysterectomy and bi-lateral mastectomy with tram-flap by the age of 29... I refuse to admit how old I am now, but I'm definitely under 50, for a little while... In my imagination, I'm still 25... Although I must admit, I finally got a sense of style in my mid thirties, so mid thirties weren't too bad. I wish I was thinner though... Oh look, there goes my Menopause brain, AGAIN. I'm rambling...
I was convinced Monday night that I had an appointment with Dayton's child psychologist yesterday afternoon, so much so, that when I got Dayton on the bus, I rushed back inside, cleaned up a bit, decided to take a little nap, than grab a shower, put on make up and did my hair. Got dressed... Drove all the way out to the psychologist's office and announced to the receptionist that I was here for my appointment. I sat in the waiting room while she called Dayton's psychologist's nurse (Nurse Penny), and heard a "really? are you sure, because she's sitting right here in the waiting room..."
Nurse Penny comes out to the waiting room, and thank goodness I was by myself without Dayton and the waiting room was empty... "Lou, we're in a scheduled meeting right now, I'm pretty sure your appointment is next Tuesday... Let me go get my appointment book."
Whhhhaaaaaaaat?! I'm so tired... You mean to tell me I could still be obliviously drooling on my pillow? Seriously?!
Nurse Penny comes back with her appointment book and shows me pencilled in for November 15th at 11:30am. Really?! I even got the freaking time wrong?! What's wrong with me?!
I apologize for my confusion and interruption and slink away to my car. Does this mean Dayton's school's hot lunch isn't on tomorrow and I need to go out and buy bread today? Better go home and check as I am also one of the volunteers for hot lunch day...
Check the calendar and guess what? Oops I did it again! Got that day wrong too. Hot lunch is next week!!! What's happening to me?! I threw in the towel and went back to bed. Whatever. Deal with it later.
Consider yourselves hugged, especially if your brain is somewhat like mine.
