In one week: I let a big pan of boiling water evaporate on the stove – while I was in the living room on my computer. The smoke detector went off and I was like why the hell is that going off?! I left my hiking boots at the gym (wore my runners home), and last night as I was getting ready to go out and chatting with my girlfriend who had come over to babysit, I put the my wine glass in the microwave and a glass of milk on the kitchen counter. Then I thought wandered about the house looking for my wine for a full 5 minutes before I realized what I had done. For the daughter of a dementia patient, this is so not appropriate. Putting things in inappropriate places. Not cool. It’s one thing forgetting to pick up one item at the grocery store cause you are not using a list and another to put a glass of wine in the microwave, set it for 29 seconds, and then wonder where the hell your wine went. True, the kid was chatting, she was chatting, I was trying to make sure his stuff was in order for bedtime and I was getting my boots, purse and what not, but omigosh! Am I that tired? I haven’t even finished reading that perimenopausal book yet! I started taking B6-b12 vitamins and of course, my face starts getting bumpy. I had that reaction when I was getting B12 shots years ago from the naturopath, so I had to stop.
What do I do?
Anyway, we went out for a company dinner last night. It was so much fun. Ah, yes, the wine was flowing and the food was delicious! I love business dinners. Yes, it’s true, I love to socialize. And these guys are actually fun to talk to. It wasn’t all just business talk. Somehow the wives and I ended up talking a bit about open adoption – you know, the whole oh, weren’t you worried she’d try to take him back later and all that. Yada, yada, yada, being the bridge for my son and all that. Of course, they think I’m a friggin’ saint. I’m not of course, I’m just your typically flawed human being with strong tendencies of self slander and quiet rage. Then mercifully, a change of topic and by the time dessert was over, I was pleasantly buzzed and I took a cab home. Hubby stayed out with his colleagues, but I had to get home, relieve my friend and do a little research for my audition today.
Yes, I have another audition which requires crazy hair and makeup and I still have to get socks and shoes on the kid, walk the dog and drop him downtown. In an hour. Bye.
