I'm losing my mind.
For the past few weeks, Malia has been telling me about her school's holiday concert. Her 1st grade class has been practicing a few songs for the program. Well, for the past few weeks I had it in my mind that the concert was Friday night at 7. Well, every Thursday a school newsletter comes home. At 6:55 I was looking over the letter and saw "CONCERT TONIGHT" on the front page. I started shouting orders. "Get your shoes on, Change your clothes, get a bottle!" In world record time we were in the van headed to Malia's school. We got to the school and hurried in...it was only then that I learned that the "Choir" concert is only for 4th and 5th grade students. The rest of the grades are performing at a "Winter Assembly" (heaven forbid you call it a Christmas assembly) during school on Friday morning. Nowhere in the newsletter or any other letter that I received did it say that the choir concert did not involve the whole school. How was I to know that the first graders don't have "choir". So we turned around and went back home. The school needs to remember that 1st graders aren't exactly good at remembering and passing along this type of information. Later that night I went to Hollywood video to get some vids for this weekend. (I thought the new Bourne movie was out, but it wasn't...dang!) I get up to the checkout counter with Evan Almighty and Ocean's thirteen. The guy proceeds to tell me that we still haven't turned in our movies from 8 days ago. What! How did I forget that. I'm seriously losing my mind. Brent tried to offer me his old Franklin so I could try and organize my life and brain. It seriously weighed 10lbs. And I don't need an extra 10lbs to lug around. So I will continue to write telephone numbers, and to do lists on random scraps of paper, or napkins, and hope I remember where I put them.
