How Absent Minded are YOU???

Today I put the cereal box in the fridge and the milk in the pantry. Do you ever look for your glasses only to find you are wearing them? Do you get up to get a glass of water and when you get to the kitchen you forget why you're there?

That is funny...because yesterday I put the cereal box in the fridge myself...and when I went to put the milk back, I saw the box there and started laughing at myself...well, it is good to know that I am not the only one...there are so many other things that I have done, like the phone kept ringing this morning, and I was so harried, and hurried, that I had no idea where it was, because I had gotten sidetracked, when I was getting a dishrag out of the drawer, when my hubby came downstairs telling me that he wanted me to make him espresso, and I said that I was too busy (had a dinner party to prepare), so he said he would make it himself, but I decided to make it for him anyway, but then, I got annoyed, becaue I could not find the ringing phone, and I knew that he had something to do with it. It had turned out that I had stuck it inside the drawer, instead of putting the dishrag back (which was on the table, instead).

I'm not usually absent-minded, and I do a lot of things on autopilot. But when I'm stressed, I make mistakes. Forget things, drop things. And when I'm stressed I also have mishaps in the car (but that's another story).

Is your name Margieanne? Hehheh. :) I am like that all the time. I put the milk in the cabnet, I got to the pantry and stand there wondering why I am there. I never know where I left my eye glasses or shoes. And I am forever loosing my keys, but they are always in my purse. Blessings M&M

There are days I'm constantly trying to put things back in the house where they don't belong (but amazingly, never the milk in the cupboard). Usually, I forget which cupboard I need to open to get a cereal bowl. And the bad thing is they've been in the same spot for the past four years!My biggies are always misplacing my cell phone, the cordless home phone (thank heavens for the finder button on the base), and the car keys. But I only lose them when I go somewhere because they inevitably crawl to the bottom of my purse or the diaper bag. I never lose them at home any more though ever since we finally got a bowl on the countertop where we drop them the moment we come in the door. Thankfully, I have yet to lose a child though. LOL!

well i am guilty of this... i often forget where i put a thing and would go crazy looking for them only to find out i put them near a place where i can actually see them easily... haha i wonder why this happens... ?? any idea? is this really normal? before i was looking for my earnings, etc.. then my mom said i am wearing them! it was really shameful.
