… you begin to clean up the kitchen to put away food and find yourself attempting to put a plastic container of cooked, farfalle pasta into the cabinet with the rest of the plastic snapware instead of the refrigerator.
I think being at home, sick (flu, sore throat, swollen glands, clogged ears, sinus fun, etc.) for the last eight days has obviously affected my thinking, haha.
So, what silly thing have YOU done — or almost done — lately while not really paying attention? 🙂

The day I got my BFP, I was stricken completely retarded…
I did laundry with no laundry soap.
I started a centrifuge to spin blood samples at work… with no samples in it.
I tried to start my car with my house key, and also tried to use my house key at my grandma’s house.
I got halfway through making a chicken casserole before realizing I had forgotten to get the chicken.
I had dinner with a gal pal & ordered dinner to go to bring home for my husband, and then left the restaurant without the food. It was sitting on the edge of the table, with my keys ontop of it so I wouldn’t forget. I had to turn around and go back for it. Embarrassing :/
I went to the gym but forgot tennis shoes, so I did a spin class in slip-on flats.
I took a shower in the spare bathroom (DH was “occupying” our bathroom) and forgot to take my towel with me.
I got home from work one night & I really wanted a Five Guys burger, so I went out and picked up dinner for us (thinking I was being such a good wife to surprise him with dinner)… turns out I had forgotten that we made plans to go to dinner with friends! The burgers weren’t as good reheated the next day.
I tripped over a door frame coming out of a bathroom at work. Yes, you read that right, I tripped over the DOOR frame… it isn’t even on the ground.
There are many others, but you get the point. I’m surprised I haven’t been told to wear a helmet yet.

@Brielle: …you’re in class totally paying attention and you realize it is the end of class and you’ve taken no notes.

@subtlebee: haha! yep I’ve definitely done that.

Ive been super stressed at work lately. One night, I was making my lunch and put our electric can opener in the fridge. My fiance found it the next day and sent me a picture…ha.

You know you are not paying attention when:
I ask my grown daughter how was her day and she preceeds to tell me but I didnt hear one word.
I walk into the kitchen and forgot why I went in there
I answer the phone at home and act as if I am at work

@OtterHalf: LMAO… I put the bread in the pasta cabinet and of course my daugther said Ma you are really getting old…hahahaha

this morning i said “good girl” to my boy-dog and “good boy” to my girl…whoops!

I am constantly doing things like that. I’ve put the remote in the freezer before. I’ve gotten home from work and tried to hang my work clothes on the light switch. I’ve attempted to lock the door from the INSIDE before. I once went to throw some food away, and instead threw my silverware in the trash and put the food in the sink.
Yeah. I’ve got a serious case of the specials.

@finnaroo: I was taking a video of my dogs once… And didnt notice until afterwards when I was watching it that I called one of my dogs by another dogs name. XD

On many occasions I have put the cereal box into the fridge instead of the pantry when finished with it.
The other one I do all the time is when I am working outside I will leave my gloves on the top of the car and then drive off and see them scatter behind me.

@DaneLady: Oh my! LOL.
At first, I thought you meant that you had done all of those things in one day. However, I soon realized that was impossible, because you began mentioning several different instances involving dinner. Yes, Please. Get a helmet for your own safety and protection! Hahaha. Just Kidding! 🙂
@subtlebee: Oops! Yeah. Not good. 🙂 I find that my mind travels constantly at this stage in my life. I’m thankful I went to college a hundred years ago. Well, not really, but relatively speaking, LOL. 🙂
@OtterHalf: That IS a good one! Haha. My husband has the most incredible sense of humor, so I cannot even IMAGINE the teasing I would get if I did that. Haha. 🙂
@niasg1: Well, I suppose that is better than answering the phone at work as if you were at home. Did you see the movie “Courageous”? There are several scenes in which a police sergeant ends his phone conversations with his captain as if he were talking to his wife! It was pretty funny.
@finnaroo: Haha. Now they’ll BOTH need counseling, LOL. My male dog has a name that can be used for a boy or a girl, and my friend and her daughter ALWAYS insist upon referring to him as “she” and “her.” I’ve told them over and over, but, in their minds, because the daughter has two girl friends/cousins with this name, my poor boy dog will forever be female in their minds, haha.
@allyfally: LOVE the remote in the freezer!! That’s as good as OtterHalf’s can opener in the refrigerator! My smarty-pants DH likely would ask me if I were planning to watch “Cold Case” or something!

Pre-paid for gas, then gotten back into my car and started to drive away without pumping any! Luckily I realized pretty much immediately was like ‘Wait…why is my gas light still on?’ but I felt like an idiot, haha. But I was newly pregnant and feeling like crap.

We were all staying in a cabin in Big Bear a few years ago. I put instant coffee in the coffee maker…I have yet to live that one down.
I have left the gas cap open on the car several times, I have tried starting the car when already started (that sound it makes when that happens!)
I have hurt myself a few times while walking
I have thrown my cellphone in the trash or set it down in the fridge
Have left my purse on top of my car and drove away. Had to drive back and confront a couple walking down the street. The girl was trying to hide the purse behind her even though I already saw it. They gave it to me when I started throwing a fit. Guess I was scary. That was fun! “GIVE IT TO ME!!! (demonic voice)” >:o
When I was little, I wrapped my retainer in a napkin and set it on my cafeteria tray. Emptied the tray in the trash can and did not realize I had done that until after school. My mom made me go dumpster diving with her to find it.

@Brielle: Your husband sounds hysterical…hahaha I have call my daughter by my dog’s name (queenie) and I have combine them both by calling her shaqueeine when her name is Shakeira. She says thanks mom..hahaha
