Two Dumb Things I Did This Week

Dumb Thing #1-

After a long night of sick Babs and general house upset, we were rushing to get both Lolly and CG ready and out the door for their day. CG requested that I make his lunch and asked that I make a sandwich and send a can of green beans in his lunch as well. Being the dutiful wife that I am, I followed the directions and plopped that can of green beans in his lunch bag without a second thought.

Later that night we were discussing his day and he brought up the green beans. And then, over 12 hours later, it hit me. He doesn't have a can opener at work. He always opens it at home and takes it in a container to heat and eat later on.


Dumb Thing #2-A Conversation

Me: Can we swing by the library while we're out? I need to return a book today.
CG: Why today?
Me: I couldn't renew it online because someone has requested it.
CG: Was it good?
Me: I don't know. I kept forgetting I had it and didn't get a chance to read it.
CG: What book was it?
Me: (pause) Women With ADD.

After we stopped laughing....
CG: Maybe you should reserve that book again.
Me: Probably. If I remember.

What? He couldn't run to a store and pick up a can opener? Or have some sort of 72-hour kit in the car with an emergency one?

I was going to comment on something else in your post, but I got distracted and can't remember. Oh well.

I had to laugh at your conversation and shared it with my husband. He laughed too. I'm always forgetting things and losing focus. We just have way to many things on our minds, so it's easy to lose focus.

It didn't even cross my mind he's need a can opener until you typed it. Ha! The book thing cracks me up! Priceless, that.

LOVE the ADD book thing. SO SO funny! It seriously made me laugh out loud instead of the usual me putting lol when I don't actually laugh out loud! :)

And the dumb thing that I did today? Went to my step aerobics class even though I knew I was getting a cold. Paying for it now.
