I remember when I was pregnant and I would forget things.
I do recall moments after I had the Bear and I was trying to also keep up with the Princess when I felt like I was in a daze.
I had it.
I'm sure you can relate.
But those were times when I was so very tired.
I wasn't exhausted.
I just forgot.
Yesterday I looked in my dayplanner that I have stowed in my purse.
I had "3pm Dentist" scrawled in for today.
I forgot to ask for time off so I could make it to my darn appointment!
As soon as I walked into work, I went in to talk to my boss to ask if I could leave about 90 minutes earlier than usual.
She said it was okay.
I let everyone know that I'd be leaving early and made sure my back-ups were ready to help out.
I left at 2:30pm.
I arrived at my dentist at 3pm and signed in.
May (the receptionist) called me over at 3:05pm.
"I don't have you in my book for today."
"No. I don't."
"I have it written in my dayplanner..."
"I was contacting your primary and secondary insurance to check on how we're going to charge your new crown and I won't hear from them for another couple of weeks."
"Oh. Okay. Well? I guess I'll do a couple errands then since I'm off work already."
Where was my mind?
Last week when I went to see my dentist, it was because there was a cancellation.
My appointment today was the original date/time that I had scheduled.
I just forgot to remove it from my dayplanner.
The good thing that happened was that I was able to leave work early and hit the grocery store and Tarjay.
