Got My Head Up My...

I think I have my head wedged tightly up my bum.  Seriously...

I totally forgot to call my Dad on Father's Day.  Who does that?  Me...  I did text him when I remembered it, but that was at 10:30 last night -- and he's on EST, not CST like me.  Sorry, Daddy...

And then, I realized that I changed purses and never mailed a Mother's Day card to my Grandmother.  Sigh...  I am clearly not going to win "Most Favored Granddaughter" status this year.  Sorry, Grandma...

What is going on with me?

I think the end of the academic year came rushing at me like a freight train on speed -- recovering from that has left me floundering, my head spinning right round like a record, baby.  When you add in the amazing traveling husband, the t-ball playing, birthday partying boy child and the potty training girl child you get a mama about as organized as my Mom's junk drawer.  Oh, yeah -- there's the chickens, house, laundry, cooking, cleaning, bill-paying, weed-filled gardening and trying-to-lose-weight-by-running, too.

I don't really have an excuse because when said hubby isn't traveling or working a show during the evening, he's a pretty darn helpful guy.  Unfortunately, June has seen one opera, one trip to Texas, and the current week-long sojourn to Nebraska for this poor, overworked daddy.  Poor fella spent Father's Day in a rented van driving through thunderstorms to recruit aspiring thespians. 

And then, when I did get a chance to talk to him, I groused about the four empty ice cube trays in the kitchen.  No one else uses ice, ice, baby.  Just him.  And the wonderful wife that is me took the opportunity to complain to him about it in Father's Day.  Sorry, honey...

So, yeah...  I've got a big ol' head wedgie right now...

I feel this way 90% of the time! Something about having kids pushes all but the most essential functions right out of one's head - I'm lucky I put pants on most mornings!!

Don't feel bad, my husband did not call his dad either, I waited for my dad to cal me, and Mother's Day, well, we wont even go there.

I blame my kids.

Get your head outta there right this instant! Really, though, I just sent my dad an ecard and it has never once crossed my mind to send a Mother's Day card to my mom, let alone my grandmothers. Compared to me, you're doing great! ;)

Welcome to SITS! I do that to my Dad every year because his Father's Day is in June but where I live, Father's Day is in September. He understands. :) (As long as I call him eventually!)

I think we all have days (or weeks, in my case) like that! :)
