Looking for the "reboot" button for my brain!

Admittedly, my mind has been on other things the last few days, but I didn't realize it had completely left my body! For example, yesterday I arrived at a press conference and introduced myself to the press person. She offered to walk me into the building, but before we reached the door, she stopped to dig some papers out of a folder for me. As she handed them to me, rather than saying "thank you" like a normal person, I said pretty loudly, "Hi!" Without missing a beat, she responded, "Hi." I'm still not sure if she was distracted and automatically answered or if she just thought I was crazy and was going along with it.



Then, today, I set up a three-way call between myself, the Pretend Husband and our brother-in-law (whoo! eighth-grade Total Phone!) As we were all finishing our conversation, I asked the bro-in-law to put my sister on and then, realizing the PH was about to hang up, said, "Bye hon." Well, the PH had already hung up, so the bro-in-law thought I was speaking to him. He said goodbye politely, but a minute later asked Kat's lil sis to ask me if I had called him "hon" on purpose.



Yeah, this house sale had better go through quick before I make a fool of myself in front of a U.S. senator or something!

I feel like this all the time, so I don't know what my excuse is because I'm not selling my house! I think it is Ned - kids drain your sanity.

I say " i love you" so much to my husband and baby and family members, that it has just become standard for me to say it after "bye". I've accidentally declared my love for a lot of stunned strangers!

LOL! That's too funny! I always refer to my significant other as baby or honey and then I'll say it to people out in the community before I realize it. :-/

That's funny! I do it too! I tend to blame it on the kids.

You sound like me, but I have no excuse...except that I'm freaking nuts, of course. :)

That is great! As always, you had me near spitting my coffee out this morning while I read that!
