Speaking of memory loss…

To go along with that last post…

I have been having a major case of forgetfulness. I have lists everywhere and for everything and I still can’t seem to get everything in order or remember everything. Perfect example – my husband’s company Christmas party was this past weekend.

He went to work for a while and I was to meet him there in time for the party. He asked that I buy him a sweater and bring it with me so that he could wear it to the party. I bought him a nice sweater and put the bag next to the counter in the kitchen, so I wouldn’t forget it. Guess what? You got it! I forgot the stupid bag and only remembered as I’m 2 minutes away from my husband’s job. Luckily it wasn’t very cold that night, so he was ok, but still, I forgot. And, I’ve been like that for a few other things lately.

Ok, I’m done whining now. I’m sure there are more important things to worry about, but being a person who used to remember everything and who was very organized, it’s hard to realize you can’t keep up with everything anymore. All this from just having a baby???!!! lol

I have a horrible memory as well, but I’m not sure it’s due to having kids (though I hear that is common).

My memory has been bad for the last several years. I’ve actually wondered if I have a learning disability because it gets so bad sometimes!

It’s TOTALLY from having a baby. I’m so forgetful and disorganized now.

I’m glad to see I’m not the only one, but saddened at the same time that everyone is so forgetful!
