Not sure if it's Brain Fog or just a case of me going/being Senile.
I went down the town on Monday. Came back in and the first thing I do when taking my shoes off is put my slippers on. They weren't by the front door where I normally leave them. Not by the chair where I sit, nor in the bedroom. I even checked in the garage, just to make sure I didn't put them in there. Rechecked everywhere again and still couldn't find them. So I put my Birkenstocks on, still confused about where the slippers could be.
Now this is where the irrational part of my brain takes over. All I could think of is why would someone break into the house to steal a pair of stinky slippers that I have worn all Winter? Luckily my more common sense part of my brain took over eventually and decided I was being stupid....did take a while though!
Then while all this was happening, I was looking for my grocery receipt so I could update my grocery total on my blog. Again do you think I could find it. I knew I had looked at it in the car when I left the store. So I looked in the car to see if it was there, no. Looked all through my handbag, looked in my purse, couldn't find it. I eventually found it stuck behind another receipt.
As for my slippers found them also eventually, in our walk in closet/wardrobe. I must have got changed in there for some reason and left my slippers there when I changed out of my old pants into my better ones.
I was shattered after all that. Being forgetful is just plain tiring when you have to do all that thinking!
Now to make me feel better, please feel free to share your stories of searching hours for something that is right in front of you!!
