Fragments on Friday

Do you sometimes long for a complete thought? An answer to go with that nagging question? The ability to finish out a line of thought before moving on to the next thing that comes to mind?

I mean, as opposed to those little fragments of ideas that come popping into your head. You DO have those kinds of days when your mind rambles aimlessly and you can't seem to wrap it completely around something, right? Or is it just me?

Oh the things that pop into my head at times!!!

Anyway, here are a few of the things I've pondered this morning. If you have answers to any of the questions, please feel free to clue me in on it. (Especially RF#2...she drives me bonkers!) Not only will I feel better, but you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that you helped maintain the sanity of one of your bloggy buddies.

Random Fragment #1. Why is it that when I have the opportunity to sleep in a little, my eyes pop open even before my alarm would normally be going off?

Random Fragment #2. Why does that one mom out at the school always insist on pulling into one of the (only) six tiny parking slots diagonally...making it impossible to park on either side of her?

Random Fragment #3
: Three days ago Tucker requested tacos for supper this evening. How did I manage to: Forget my list when I went to the store? Forget one of the three things I went after...which happened to be the taco shells? Forget them again when I returned to the store to pick up the taco seasoning, which I had also forgotten?

Random Fragment #4:
Why is it that I always seem to look at the clock at 11:11? (Phil does the same thing....NO JOKE! And the funny thing is, it started when I was pregnant with Tucker and guess what time Tucker was born?)

Random Fragment #5: Wonder if I have all the ingredients to make this carrot cake today?

Will I remember to look for the ingredients when I go downstairs in a few minutes? If so and I discover that I am missing something, will I remember it when I go back to the store to pick up those taco shells I forgot earlier? Will I remember the shells? Or even how to get to the store?

I'm exhausted just thinking about it.

Could have something to do with the fact that my eyes popped open a good hour and a half before I had to get up this morning. (See Random Fragment #1.)


  1. First of all, that is called ADHD! lol

    #1 As moms, we are not allowed to sleep in!

    #2 Thats when you park as close as you can to her, so she can't get out until you move your car. And that could take a few extra minutes.

    #3 Usually, it's because you are too busy thinking about the list you forgot instead of what was on it. But...only 3 things...Early alzheimers??? :)

    #4 That just kinda weird.

    #5 Probably not because it was probably on the list that you had left at home!

    Have a great weekend! Hope I helped. :)

  2. #3 sounds just like me and #4 is kind that really when he was born, crazy. Hmmm, now I want carrot cake.

  3. I really related to this one!! :D Must just be a part of being MOM. NOW, you made me really, really want a wonderful, moist carrot cake. Can you just make it and ship it to me???
    Thanks for the smiles today.

  4. Hi Kelli- thanks so much for stopping by my blog and for your nice comments! I've enjoyed reading yours, too! I can SO relate to this post- just this morning I was thinking how the word "scatterbrained" was so perfect for describing my mental state...LOL My brain is so full all the time, it is scattered all over the place!

  5. LOl, I seem to notice at the clock at 10:59. I have since I was a teenager. I've never mentioned that to anyone before. I'm glad I'm not the only random clock viewer :-)

  6. "Overload", my dear.
    You're a busy mom with lots on your mind.
    I totally "get it".

    I couldn't help but laugh as I read what you posted on my Blog about your son and having his card pulled. Misery loves company. LOL


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a note! : )
