My Brain is Elsewhere...

I woke up this morning to a text from my friend, Baub. 

"Ummm...did Roon go in today?"

And that's when I knew it was going to be one of THOSE days.  You know, the ones where you know you better not count on your brain for ANYTHING???

Today we were supposed to trade babysitting to volunteer at the school, but I forgot to remind Roon to pick up her husband. 
Because I suck.

I blame my absentmindedness on the fact that my brain is actually residing several hundred miles away right now. 

With one of my favoritest people, Evelyn

Who is in LABOR as I type this!

I'm so excited! 

I usually only get this excited for new nieces, nephews, or babies of real life friends. 

Does this make me odd?

If so, I guess I don't want to be normal.

Congratulations, Evelyn!  I can't wait to 'meet' her!

UPDATED:  Baby girl is here!  Mom and baby are doing well.  I'm on the edge of my seat, waiting for photographic evidence of all her dark hair...

How exciting for Evelyn! Eric called me while I was at the store asking if I could get some batteries. I seriously think I forgot about them by the time I made it to the end of the row :)

No worries. I praised your name as I skipped down the hall to put my yoga pants on, since it was going to be one of those days :)

I love when my brain is lost.

Like when I forget it's short day.

Do you think my kids call me and say "where are you mom?"

Of course not. They just dink around outside the school with all their friends for an hour and a half.

Mother of the year right here.

My brain is elsewhere too, but I am chalking it up to too much Nyquil.

I have been thinking about her all day too. I am soooo glad baby is here & that they both are well. I too am going crazy with no pics yet.

My brain cells are slowing disappearing and I blame it on child birth. Because I am NOT taking the blame for this one.

YAY for Evelyn!!!!

I hate when my mind decides to have a mind of its own and forget to fill me in. But that is a wonderful reason to be absent minded! I, on the other hand, have no excuse. Glad the mother and baby are doing so well.
