Well,if thats the case...I have suffered from 'placenta brain' just about my whole adult life! lol Does that count, can I still blame pregnancy?

Oh Anne, I laughed at ya. Told my DH and he made me tell you not to feel bad...I still forget where I am parked. Only because I have been in the mall WAAAAY TOOOO long!:) So, I get teased all the time...because I will sound the alarm really quick on my van to 'remind' me! [;)]People gotta think I am nuts! But, hey, its better than walking around with 4 kids until someone stops and ask if I am looking for a 5th child that ran off!

And Julie...YEP motor mouth I am! ALL THE TIME, however! lol I will lay in bed at night until DH will actually say.."Honey, I love you! SHUT UP!" LOL LOL...And in his defense, thats only after I have yapped, yapped, yapped for about an hour, nonstop! But, when I was pregnant, I was worse. Anyone who would listen...I would tell ya my whole lifes problems. Then kick myself in the tooshie later for being so open!

Very funny ladies! We all have so much going on (multi-taskers, all of us!!) I do remember a story when I was pregnant with my first which ended up costing my company quite a bit of money. I worked in a research lab for a telecomm and there was a problem in a lab and to fix it I had to turn a bunch of things off. I ended up going into the wrong lab and shutting the whole thing down as it was in the middle of a major 24 hr test. I ruined the testing and the whole test had to be rescheduled, the customer had to be notified. Boy did I act outraged that someone actually ruined the test. (Like I would admit I did that?!?) I never told anyone that I did that except for a good friend of mine who worked with me and helped me cover it up!! OY!!!

Thanks for letting me get that off of my chest!!

I do little odd ball things....
-refrigerated things wind up in the cabinet and
vice versa.
-make a list for the grocery and leave it at home.
or don't make a list, but run in for a couple of key items....leave with everything but them.
-I become very forgetful and bills wind up not getting paid.....when they call to tell me,
I plead pregnancy (it SHOULD be an amendment!!)

I'm still recovering from my placenta brain, and it has been almost a year! One of my co-workers said her mother used to say you lose 1/4 of your brain power with each child... I have to say that is true in my case![;)]

Julie, What dork... Jaidyn interupted me, what I wrote got messed up. Didn't add that my mouth problem is all complaining 24/7. That's why Shad says I'm PMSing [:I] See there's that pg brain thing - side tracking level 2 baby brain syndrom [;)]

Therese, Couldn't agree more. This kid better come out guiness if it's sucking that hard [:D]

T, Stupid things count!!! Oh common, do tell [:)]

I don't have any terribly funny stories, just "where's my head at" kind of things at work and stuff. My coworkers call it - BSB, Baby sucking brain syndrome!! I'm sad to say I don't think it ever really goes away! [:)]

Laura, So happy I went with H2o as my drink of choice today. I was sipping some while reading your response to my post. Need I say more?!
[:)] I laughed and was shocked all at the same time.
But I forgot I did have a moment that cost. I forgot my wallet at a pizza place... cash was stolen... Pizza cost ended up costing us $85!
Not a happy hubby. But he's over it [;)]

Julie, Laugh away at us.... your next, And I'll be waiting [;)]
P.s.- I can't blame Pork Chop for my mouth [:0] But Shad went as far to tell me I'm PMSing. [}:)] Makes matters all the better [;)]

Catherine, I'm right there with ya'. My whole brain is shot. You know it's bad when family (who your suspose to love at all cost) tells you they can't wait until your back to your "old" self again. [}:)] I find words quickly then [;)]

Anne, Oh my goodness!!! [:0] What an event! Bet you were scared and embassesed all at once. Only reason I excaped that one is... I always park in the same spot everywhere I go.
And having a potty training toddler is helping with the "I gotta' go"
excuse. We have now mapped all pottys in the greater Pueblo County area. [;)]



Well thanks a million girls! Good to know I'm not alone once again. Looking forward to whatever sillyness is waiting my future.
Future stories to share with Pork Chop. [:)]

I always pride myself in my "innate" sense of direction. My poor EX was not so well blessed so he relied on me really heavily. When I was in my last pregnancy I parked my car at Bellevue Square (I was heavily pregnant--HEAVILY as in--you plot the next bathroom before you move--pregnant) a local mall and went inside. When I came back outside I had NO CLUE where I had left the car and naturally--I was in no shape to wander the five levels of parking covering two city blocks looking for it. I had to call my then DH and have him come "get me". Naturally...it was fodder for fun (at my expense) for a LONG time.
