Blonde moments

Sadly, I must admit that I have far too many of these. Flighty, forgetful, absent-minded, disorganized, unfocused...these words could all be listed in my profile quite accurately. Once, I found some kind of herbal remedy for people who have trouble staying focused. Bet you already guessed I could never remember to take it!

I think that God made me this way to help me stay humble. Imagine if I could keep it all together...all the balls in the air...all the time. Well, I'd sure have a serious pride issue (at least, I imagine I would). Instead, I have to seek help from people who are organized. I have to write everything down (although sometimes I still forget to read my notes. LOL). And I have to say I'm sorry an awful lot.

So, if I don't show up for your event, or I neglect to answer your email, or I ask you something that you already answered yesterday...feel free to bring it to my attention, pop me in the forehead, pinch me, whatever. Just don't say I didn't warn you, and please, please, please, don't give up on me! And if you feel the need to come at me with your best blonde jokes...well, bring it on. I can take it. :)

Hi Shelly,
I had to laugh when I read your blog today. I am exactly the same way. I am terrible at remembering things especially appts. I get that little card and staple it to my bulletin board and still forget. I write things down in my planner and forget to read them, It's crazy. I am the same way and just had to laugh I was thinking yeah I could copy and paste that blog apologizing for all the phone calls I forget to make or emails or whatever or even events and some have been really important most people don't want to hear I am sorry but, honestly it's never never intentional. So I am in that same boat with ya.
See we would be the best of friends because we would both forget. LOL

Hugs to you today,
Sheila
