I totally freaked out today. If I had high blood pressure, this would NOT have been good.
No. Just to clarify so I don’t freak you out, all is fine on the pregnancy front.
This morning, after going to the library to get more children books and cookbooks, we went across to the street to the mall. By this time, the boy is very hungry. So we went to the food court and ate his packed lunch (cheapie Mama). After much fussing, he finally finished eating. We then went to a couple of stores to browse for sales. Didn’t find much of anything. No surprise as everything displayed in stores now are geared toward “Mother’s Day”. It was getting close to his nap time - ugh - so I went to change his diapers and was getting ready to
leave. Before long, I realized I left my nifty peacoat jacket at the food court!!!!! And it’s a fine 35F degrees outside, with slight snow flurries (yah, in MAY…) And guess what, my car keys and my house keys are in the jacket pocket.
This is one of my favorite jackets. Yes it’s PINK but it has those cool tooth-like buttons that goes into a loop, and it’s a maternity jacket, and I got it on sale for $20 (some 90% off).
I rushed back to the food court, with stroller and toddler in tow. Ugh, the food court is on 2nd level and I had to round about to get to an elevator. I haven’t walked this fast since… well, I think this has to be a first.
Thank the chilly winds and the damned snow flurries and the dead magnolia flowers (a result of the sudden frost) in our yard, the jacket was right where I left it. And my keys. Yikes how close was that. I wondered if the jacket would have disappeared if it wasn’t a busy Monday morning at the food court. People looked at me funnily as I grabbed the jacket and strolled away.
I know I mentioned “chemo brain” in a recent post. I’m not blaming it entirely on that, as I know there is also “pregnancy brain” and then there’s the “aging brain.” Do you really think some extra ginko will help my memory??
