I am living on the corner of...

and...

Did you ever go somewhere and forget why ?
I am not talking another room girls...
I am talking going to town .

Hubby and I went out to eat Friday night
for our Valentine dinner at applebees,
{approx. 35 miles one way}
but, another big reason we also went was
to stop at Office Max and see if they had a
specific battery charger that we were looking for.

We decided to eat first and after driving around
the parking lot several times we finally found a spot
to park the car.

We then waited inside for over half an hour to eat,
{but I must say...it was well worth the wait}
I just love their Oriental Chicken Salad.
We chatted and munched and chatted some more
and eventually left to do our shopping.

First stop was at JoAnn Fabric so I could get a couple
things , then on to Walmart and then...
HOME!!
Can you believe it??
Half way home hubby turns towards me and said, "we never went to Office Max".
Now please tell me that some of you are this forgetful too...
oh pleaseeeeeeee!! It was funny and annoying at the same time.
I give up!! I ordered a battery charger online when I got home. lol

{in my defense i was exhausted before we even left home
to go out so that could be part of the reason i forgot...lol }

have a wonderful Monday~

Oh yes! We do this too! And since we've moved several months ago, DH keeps steering the truck back to our old home, forgetting that we live in an opposite direction right now! It's auto-pilot mode, LOL!

Too funny!!. Just know that you aren't alone with this little problem Sandi and that each and every one of us will experience something similar at some point in our lives.

I would have to confess that when I go to the store for milk it can cost $50.00. The trip goes something like this. I arrive at the store, only to discover that I have no list (why would I need a list with just milk on it?), but now I can't remember what I came for....so I wander aimlessly through the store until I remember why I'm there. In the meantime, several items I didn't know I needed have somehow gotten into my cart....

I'm glad I don't live far from shopping areas, I'm constantly running back and forth for things I forgot!

Tami said...

LOL....right there with you sista! I'll write it down but then forget to take the list when I leave the house. ;o)

Tracey said...

Oh Sandi, my friend, it happens to the best of us! And more often than we'd like :) I'll be laying in bed and night, and then BOOM, it hits me...and I'll remember something that I was supposed to pick up at the store but totally forgot...a lot of good that does me!

Blessings ~

I forget everything all the time. Sometimes I go to the grocery store for a few items and come out with everything but what I went in for. I will put something in the fridge and think I want to go get this and by the time I leave the kitchen, I forgot what I wanted to go get. We are creatures of habit too -- sometimes I just get in the car and drive the same road I take every day and it is not really where I want to be because my plan was to go someplace else. Yikes! Those are scary moments. Love those streets signs. Describes me most days. Have a blessed day. ;) Tammy
