Pregnancy brain.

As much as I hate to contribute to the stereotype that motherhood fries one's brain, there have been way too many incidents lately that prove that my own brain is definitely on the fritz.

In the last two weeks, I have locked myself out of the house twice, locked my keys in the car and nearly burned Mac & Cheese. But today I outdid all that and more. After gardening for a couple hours this morning, I changed out of my dirty overalls, and left them on the laundry room floor. Came back after my shower to put a load of laundry in, and threw the overalls in the washing machine.

Fifteen minutes later, I started wondering what I'd done with my cell phone. Where did I last have it? Oh, yes, in my pocket while I was gardening. In the pocket of my overalls. THE OVERALLS I JUST PUT IN THE WASH.

If anyone knows of a great deal on cell phones, please let me know. In the meantime, don't expect any calls from me. All my phone numbers went out with the dirty laundry water.

I think it should be okay, as long as you let it dry out, before trying to use it. See if you can get it open, and dry it out. Good luck with that.

Well, as it turns out, I'm due for a new free phone anyhow! So, if my phone miraculously awakes from its drowning-induced coma tomorrow, I'll at least be able to transfer some phone numbers to the new one!

Good luck with the new phone.

Oh cool that you can get a free phone. I was going to send you mine if you can wait til May, since I'll have to get a new one in Germany!

I definitely have the forgetful pregnant brain, but when I do those "IQ" tests on emails, I score above everyone else. ;) We're smart, we're just forgetful!
