Today, I realized that I had yet again messed up my schedule. This is something I do a little too often. Currently I have 1 of my children at a different school that follows one school district while my other 2 are right down the street with me at a charter school that follows a different school district. I try to stay on top of things but my oldest reminded me again that I have a bad case of mom brain! Can I blame him for it???
I left work early to pick him up from home and run errands before getting the other 2 from school. Yes, I could have just taken them home with me but then I have to run errands with 3 kids….I’d rather sit in the after school pick up line! So I get home and he is trying to tell me that we were scheduled for Parent teacher conferences last night not tonight. So I get onto the school website (remember he’s at a different school and I have to now remember my log in info) in the middle of rushing thru Walmart trying to find the 4 things I need. No, I didn’t write a list and if I did, I would have forgotten it somewhere anyways. Plus, it was only 4 things…easy right? Luckily, the school was able to get us rescheduled but the time was in an hour and I still had a school pick up. More chaos which means I was going to then have to push back my evening and hopefully not forget something else.
You guys, I feel like I am losing my mind. I am always forgetting things. Yes, I have a planner and write what I remember but let’s be honest, I don’t remember everything. I truly feel most days that I am keeping it together by a thread. Acting like I totally have everything under control but really I don’t. I’m working at the charter school and getting ready to add teaching English online to make some extra money to help our family. I can’t remember most things and now I am adding more to my plate! What is wrong with me? Oh yeah, I love being busy but I might be pushing the crazy boundary.
Most days I cry because I forgot something on my schedule. It can be as simple as grabbing cereal while grocery shopping. Cereal is a staple in my house. How do I forget it? I want to be on top of this whole mom/wife job but let’s be honest…..I’m not. I’m a hot freakin mess trying to keep my head above water. I’m hoping next year when all my kids are at one school and my schedule opens up a little that I will be able to pull myself together. Until then, who wants a ride to crazy town???
Who else is dealing with a fun case of mom brain???
Oh and ps….I’m back and not just for a little bit but for good. You thought you could get rid of me but you can’t. I need to write more. I need to get my thoughts and feelings out there because bottling them up isn’t working to great for me. This world is full of overly opionated people or people behind walls….I’m just a mom trying to keep it all together and not let the sadness of the world take over my home!
