I put the laundry soap where your supposed to put the fabric softener last night...so I had to run the washer thru a whole cycle without clothes. Oh brother. Do you find yourself making silly mistakes like this? I have caught myself putting the milk in the cupboard and the cereal in the fridge before too. lol

Oh boy did you open up a can of worms here.....lol I make so many! I tend to be a bit ADD and hae a hard time concentrating or remembering things I am doing, especially if I am excited, anxious, or stressed ( which is me 100% of the time!) Example: I start a load of laundry....run the water, put in the soap, bleach..then go to get some more whites bcuz I dont have enough for a full load. About 10 or 15 minutes later I hear my hubby say "Washing the water again hon?" I never even went back to put in he clothes....I do it all the time! :(

I do all kinds of airheaded things all the time. It's ridiculous. The one thing I do often which drives me crazy is I get a load of laundry going but leave the lid on the washing machine open which prevents it from draining. It washes and swishes but when it hits the swirl and rinse cycle it never kicks in because the door is open. I go back hours later and there the washer sits, all full of dirty cold water. I hate it when I do that.

Sorry, I couldn't resist responding to your discussion. My husband actually bought fabric softener in place of laundry detergent and used it on at least 2 loads of laundry. I noticed our clothes felt very weird and checked on what he was using. LOL I too have made silly mistakes like putting stuff in the wrong spot. But this was mostly when I was pregnant and had bad pregnancy brain. :D

Thanks for your quick response. I had bad pregnancy brain the last time I was pregnant. I also ended up with a lead food and got two tickets while I was pregnant. Irony...I only get speeding tickets when I'm pregnant. lol I'm just glad I caught the mix up with the laundry soap before I put in the clothes. My clothes would have came out very soapy thats for sure!! lol

I do stuff like this all of the time. I go to put the milk in the cabinet and the cereal in the fridge. I find that I do it more when I'm tired. Our youngest doesn't sleep much so I've had nights where I get 15 minutes of sleep and still have to stay up the whole next day. I've tried to turn the car off while it's in drive a few times. I've put my keys in the fridge. I lose my wallet in the house all of the time. I had to put a leash on my keys so I could find them. My dh used to tell me that he was going to get me a clapper for them. Wow I do this a lot more than I thought I did.
