The Cheese Has Slipped Off My Cracker

How much brain loss can you blame on the "M" word (ladies...you know what I'm talking about here) until you feel you should go see a doctor to check for something worse?



Stupid stuff I have done this week: (OMG...is it only Wednesday?)

  • I had to walk back and forth from my kitchen to the computer room 5 times before I remembered what I was getting.
  • I went out at my lunch break to pick something up and drove to the wrong store.
  • I walked to the post office to mail a card and forgot the card.
  • I phoned an employee using their employee payroll number and sat wondering why their voice mail wasn't cutting in.
  • I needed to send something to my co-worker at another branch and I put my bag of snack crackers into the courier envelope and into the courier bag...MY SNACK CRACKERS FROM MY LUNCH BAG INTO A BROWN ENVELOPE AND INTO THE COURIER BAG!!! Are you kidding me?  What in the H-E-double hockey sticks was I thinking???  
I think the cheese has slipped right off my cracker.

Help...

Time to quiet the mind with meditation!
Brain cramps that's all it is. Hubby and I meet in the kitchen and forget what we wanted to say..Geez..aging NOT for whimps!!Gotta laugh about it,not get too serious.
Slow down for 5 minutes daily and just breath and relax..with no thoughts.
Merry Merry, Ho ho ho!

Kerri said...

Ah, this type of stuff happens to me all of the time. I agree with Naturegirl - just gotta slow down and breathe.
Me thinks you have too much on your plate!

Anesha said...

That's so funny. Sounds like you need a holiday! :) Hugs to Banjo.

Fuzzy Tales said...

ROTFLMAO!!!! OMG, too funny!

It's just the season, all the craziness and last minute pressures and stress. You'll be fine after a bit of a break. :-)

Merry Christmas to you all!

Lin said...

Oh yeah, you've lost it!! Hahaha! I blame it on the holidays and all there is to do and remember ON TOP of trying to get work done. My job is CRAZY this week--is yours too? I think everyone is pushing stuff off their desks this week so we can chill next week. Gosh, I hope so--I can't take much more of this!

Sandra said...

the big M word is my guess, it will get better in a few years LOL but then guess what happens.. you get through the M and then just when life is good the Senior moments kick in and they are here for life.
one of my things is typing the wrong words. just a few minutes ago i typed
outways and meant out weighs... i love the cheese off the cracker and the photo. not sure how they treat M these days but back in 1990 i took hormones.

Must be time for an eggnog break!

Brian said...

I had something clever to say but I completely forgot it!

Chatty Crone said...

That was funny and I am so glad you do things like that.

I email myself things and half the time I send them to Sandra at Madsnapper when I meant Sandie. lol

Then she wonders what the heck am I sending her.

Hot Rocks said...

Ha ha ha...love the cracker story! Its a crazy time of year, throw the big "M' in and its a recipe for chaos!

The Cat Guy said...

You may have made your co-worker's day by sending those crackers! What a special surprise! Maybe next time, you could send some cheese with those crackers too. :)

I hope you can laugh about these things and not be too hard on yourself. It's ok to be human!

norma said...

Oh, Catherine, I've had a good early morning laugh at your expense - hilarious and thank you. Don't sweat it...oh, right,that'll come later, lol.
Just warn the family that if they see Banjo's toys on their dinner plate and Banjo eating lasagna they had just better be quiet and chow down.
Have a great day.

Susan said...

I have to laugh, I remember my Mom put a gallon of milk in the cupboard. I was there when she discovered what she did. She looked at me and said, "don't you dare tell anyone what I did!"

The cheese fell off my cracker a long time ago. Ack!

Christine said...

Too funny, to be honest I have had that brain since the day I had my first child. I believe pregnancy shrinks the brain, and you never get it back. I often stand in the middle of the room, zoned out, trying to remember why I came into it in the first place.

Laura Delegal - Leroy Photography said...

Oh, my, but oh my goodness to you. You make me laugh because I can so relate ... but crackers from your lunch ... ha, so sorry, but still funny.

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Catherine,
Don't worry - be happy! So this is proof that setting up a Christmas tree early will not help in the overdose of stress...
Hugs to you,
Mariette

Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...

I can't stop giggling, you are the best Christmas humour I have encountered so far....

Love this pinterest pin, "if I had a dollar for everytime I got distracted...I want some ice cream."

It's just life, it's busy, and there are a lot of things on our minds right now.

I bet they thought you sent them a quick snack with those crackers.

Jen

TexWisGirl said...

thanks for the snickers!

HARLEQUIN said...

:) It's the season! Take a pause. Have a great DAY!

Lúcia said...

Hehehe, I do things like these all the time! :D
xo

Julie G. said...

Thanks for the afternoon chuckle. It happens to all of us, no matter the age. I bet your co-worker will be expecting a cake from you next time. Fun post!

Ann said...

I've done all of those things at least once except for the courier bag thing...lol. Blame it on the holidays

Mr. Black said...

Oh, this sounds very familiar to the lady. She is 58 so she experiences these things daily.
She has to concentrate and think only about the task at hand. If she lets her mind wander even a little, she ends doing something similar to your dialing the payroll number.
I think it has to do with a growing inability to do divided attention tasks (something to do with the part of the brain called the hippocampus and short term memory deteriorating as we age).

I was going to mention something else....hmmm. Can't remember.

Carolynn Anctil said...

That made me smile - but the last bit about the crackers, had me laughing out loud! Oddly, I feel so much better about myself now. *grin*

kittykye said...

Oh my gosh, Cat. That just literally made me laugh out loud!
Poor girl ;)

(PS: Sorry I've been so quiet lately. Been reading all your posts though! Hope you're having a great Christmas season so far) :)

BeadedTail said...

That's funny! I was laughing at all the things you did and then couldn't figure out what the "M" word was. I totally blanked out! It wasn't so funny then. Ay yi yi.

Tamago said...

Oh the big M word...don't worry, you are not alone. At some point you find the way to enjoy it...hehe.

Tammy said...

Sorry, but I really had to chuckle over the crackers in the courier! I seem to be doing things like that often..oh no, I can't remember the latest thing I've done to share it with you:) Take care Catherine!

Sabi Sunshine said...

Dear Catherine

Sorry but i laughed so much about this post and seems like its already Friday for you... I cant wait for the Holidays... no worries i have done some silly stuff at work too....

Do some yoga and you will be fine


Love
Sabi Sunshine

Betsy Adams said...

HA HA ----That just proves that you are NORMAL.... We females can blame it on the "M" word --or on our hubbies --or our pets... BUT--that's just the way WE are!!!!! We are women---hear us roar--or laugh--or cry... We can do it all, can't we???

Just laugh at yourself and keep on keeping on!!!!!

Hugs,
Betsy

Heather said...

Too funny! Loved the cracker one! As for "forgetting", I don't think it has to be the M for that to happen... but it certainly doesn't help matters. Cheers!

Michael Manning said...

Well, you're only human, Cat. And besides, we all have so much on our mind these days. Give Banjo a hug! :)

Linda R said...

I can totally relate. I always blame it on my Blonde hair. I'm naturally stupid. Hee Hee.

Hugs~

CricriCat said...

Je viens te souhaiter une bonne soirée et de bonnes fêtes de fin d'année. Je fais une petite pause. A bientôt Catherine. Bisous. Cricri

Laurie said...

Oh my God you crack me up Catherine! I hope the cheese finds it's way back to the cracker, soon!! Out of curiosity, did you get it back before it was sent out!?

SweetMarie said...

I watched my mom go through all of that and I'm not looking forward to it. You have me cracking up though! LOL

Catherine said...

Have a pause and relax! The giveaway is on it's way, hope it arrives safe and sound! Catherine

Preeti said...

Hmm! Well, I can add one more thing to your list . You visited my blog, left a comment, but forgot to join ! Ha- ha ! just kidding :)
I zipped through (that's how corporate guys do and still get the crux of it; I was one of them ) some of your posts and found them quite hilarious !
And who says, there isn't extra stuff under that 'EXTRA' tab ? I could see lot of witticism in there ;)

Convey my belated bday wishes to your son :)

Sylvia said...

Oh my, that sounds not so good, Catherine :-)
Wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas time !
Sylvia

missing moments said...

You make me laugh! Frequently I have to retrace my steps to figure out what it was I was going for!
Too much on our minds! Have a wonderful Holiday!

Pantherka said...

This is great. -) wants it relaxation facilities :-)

I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas!

Susan McShannon-Monteith said...

Some of it might be M but I think you're just distracted.
So now its the weekend before Christmas and you can relax, be cozy and look forward to sleeping in.

Gaby Bee said...

I just wanted to send along some wishes for a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Hugs,
Gaby

unikorna said...

Such confusions are very much characteristic to people who are in love, Catherine...so you should reconsider your conclusion :).

A Fanciful Life said...

OMG - this is hilarious! I hate when those things happen... but this did provide a lot of humor. :-) Wishing you a wonderful holiday season!

Sharon :-)

Nancy Claeys said...

Same thing has been happening to me lately... I have no excuses. Except maybe menopause? Not sure.

Just wanted to stop by and wish you a very Merry Christmas!

The Smiths said...

Sounds like you need to slow down... Hope you've had a peaceful Christmas Catherine & have had plenty of time to relax.

Kay :)

Jaime said...

Ok, I admit... I laughed at your expense here.
I feel for you, I really do...

But I can't tell you how much I have missed your humour. I've been away a long time, but every single time I visit you, I leave with a big smile on my face. I am smiling as I type this.

Thank you for making life brighter.
xoxo
