via Daily Prompt: Missing
I know that I probably shouldn’t use this quote, it is bound to get me into trouble. In fact this whole post probably will, but…since when has that stopped me? Why start now? When I saw the word Missing, this is the quote that came to me right away.
Hey I have good excuses for missing my brain! First of all, long ago, I was pregnant. You know what they say. You lose brain cells when pregnant. Truly, it is a fact! Then you have the wonderful bundles of joy that turn into toddlers, The terrible 2’s, the Preteen stage which turns to the Teen stage in a blink of a eye. Suddenly you have gone from knowing EVERYTHING in the eyes of your 5 year old to totally knowing nothing. You are busy trying to figure out how that happened. The answer is simple.
Now I don’t want to place all the blame on my kids for me missing my mind. I do have a husband as well. He has helped to contribute to the cause, and all the women reading this say in unison in loud voices “AMEN!”
Our anniversary is coming up soon. 21 years! He has been good at putting up with my missing mind for so long! Then again, it may be due to the fact that he has lost his as well! Not due to me at all of course! Happy Early Anniversary Honey, you know I love you <3! You also know the hard time you have given me about what you do know that I don’t know. How you have added to my suspense all week, along with Colin (oh did I say his name!) Yeah, he didn’t know about this post either. You thought you knew everything! You guys think you are so wise, knowing how to give clever responses. While the only purpose the clever responses serve is to drive me more crazy!
I can’t forget how my dear friends contribute to me missing my mind also. Some more than others. My dear friends who love to see how easily they can confuse me, and be successful at jokes they pull. It is a HARD job. Yes, anyone is welcome to AGREE with me on that statement.
Add that to the normal day to day craziness that life brings and the reason for me choosing that first quote is obvious, isn’t it? Maybe I should post an Ad in the paper’s Lost and Found section.
I do have to thank my sister. We help each other out, she is missing her mind most days too. So we share with each other the little that we each have left. Some days we Amaze each other, some days….well lets stick to the Amazing days 🙂
