It's Just Not Me

Okay trying to get back on schedule here but since I wrote last night, this will be a short post.

I think I mentioned I'm not a morning person and I also tend to lose things. Personalities can't be changed but what we do can. It's called discipline and I need some. This morning I made two extra trips upstairs because I had planned to work out on my lunchhour and had my bag with my workout clothes ready but I needed socks. After I rushed upstairs to get them and back down to put them in my bag, I remembered I took my shoes off upstairs and had to retrace my steps back upstairs to get them. Don't shoes and socks always go together ... why two trips? I rushed out the door which is par for the course and got about half way to work and at a stoplight got this strange feeling. I looked over my shoulder into the back seat and guess what WASN'T there. Yep, you guessed it ... my bag with my workout clothes. Well guess what I'm not doing on my lunchhour? REALLY, you think forgetting my clothes will keep me from a little exercise? I will be mall walking ... yep, in heels. At least it will tone my calves. What I'm not doing is overeating. Have a good day everyone.

Oh why oh why did you pass this trait on to me :) I tell you, the best thing I ever did was create this master calendar that I fill out every week that is just for the kids for school - it has which days they buy or take their lunch, reminder to pack Gracie's daily snack, when to return library books, which day gym is so Gracie doesn't wear a skirt, what we have planned each evening, homework, notes that today is bake sale day and I need to pack 50 cents in each folder. And that's just the stuff I can remember off the top of my head ;) I would be lost without it. I tell you the Yahoo calendar you turned me on to has been a life saver.

Hey I forget things all the time. Walking in heels would kill me though. I do not even own a pair. Have fun on your walk though..

LOL! I forget stuff upstairs at my house ALL THE TIME!! The way I look at it now is that it's just extra exercise! ;-)

Funny- I usually don't forget things but as I age, I find myself double and triple checking things. Every morning I'll say OK coffee turned off..hot rollers off...purse and briefcase in car...cooler packed..it does keep me in check but golly, do u need to say if that often. Can you believe only 6 weeks until Christmas? Thankfully,I don't have to worry about a lot of temptations in those few weeks. Good for you for walking regardless~
