Don't they drive you nuts!!! Like for instance, when I am typing a response here or even a discussion as I am now and then I will get to a word...a simple word, and for the life of me the spelling of it just completely escapes my brain!! Or worse, when you are out shopping and you have a list of 4 things you need and you get home to find that the mustard in the fridge is completely empty and someone just put it back instead of telling you that it was empty!! Have you have a *doh* moment lately?? What was it, did you get to laugh about it later??

Hello brmom, how are you today? I am almost embarrassed to admit how many "duh" moments I have in a day! I find when I am rushed or stressed, I really make stupid little mistakes, which of course, add to the frustration. I am getting much better at just laughing at myself now, although it took some work. Anything more than 2 or 3 items in a store, and I have to take a list. Half the time I end up forgetting the list - DUH!

hi bookreadermom08 yes I can well relate. I was doing a response a little earlier this morning and came to' type the word gardening and would you know my brain' froze and I typed gardining and looked at it and duh thats not right,okay finally my brain functioned again' and I typed in gardening. Or the time I was shopping for 'ingredients to make shrimp scampi from a recipe Ihad got off the internet. I got home with my list intact,'unloaded all my groceries and oh duh where's the shrimp? I mean how does one make shrimp scampi without the shrimp? first' I wanted to cry then I had to laugh instead. So we all seem to have those duh moments for sure.

Hi bookreadermom08! Oh yes, I've had moments like his plenty of times! I've gotten home from the grocery store and realized I had forgotten something. I've also gotten in the car and started home from the grocery store and realized I had forgotten something! It's frustrating, isn't it? In the case of the latter, I just usually wait till time to go to the grocery store again and get it then because the grocery store where I shop is usually about to close when I go there. It also depends on how bad I need it.

oh yeah, been there done that!! I am lucky to have a Meijer and a Walmart within 1-2 miles from my house and both are 24 hrs...however I never go out after dark to any stores...one I have kids, and 2 its just to much effort... I always wait for the next day to go back to the store... it seems this past week I had a couple moments and that is what made me make this discussion!! thanks for the response and have a great day!!
