Scatterbrain

Yep, that's me--at least about some things. I set a new record this week. I washed one load of laundry three times. We had another *ahem* incident, and I had to wash all of the girls' bedding on a day other than laundry day. So I put the load in and forgot about it. Maybe I remembered it once or twice, but not when I could go throw it in the dryer. So the next day I remembered it was down there, but by that time I had to wash it again. Then I did the same thing again. Why do I have such a hard time with this?

I guess this is one reason why I do my laundry one day a week, and get it all done. Otherwise I would waste a lot of water and wear the clothes out pretty fast. Anything that gets washed on another day usually sits clean and unfolded in a basket until laundry day comes around again anyway. I have to have a set day for these things.

I am also little Mrs. Scatterbrain when it comes to meat that has to be thawed and takes time to cook. It takes me at least an extra day to remember to get the meat out to thaw, and then an extra day to remember to start cooking it in time for dinner. So I guess if I want to do a roast or a chicken or turkey, I better plan on making it about a week before I really want to eat it. Or maybe I better just buy them the morning I want to cook them! Maybe I need to start a day for that too.

I get the important things done, but sometimes I feel really pathetic!

I so hear you on the laundry thing. I have to have a laundry mindset, or it doesn't happen. I also washed a load 3 or 4 times a couple weeks ago. We can be pathetic together.

Ah, been there, done that and again. I have the hardest time remembering to throw clothes in the dryer. Jared tells me to set the timer, but I never listen to that advice. Just happy to know that I'm not the only one!;)
