I know...most moms go thru every child's name, the pets' names and the next door neighbor kids names before getting the right kid! We just like to blame it on Celiac rather than old age or drinking! :)

I am, however, under a life-time ban from using hedge trimmers and the mandoline in the kitchen.  :ph34r:  spoil sport hubs took 'em away.

I mean, why?....what's a few sliced electrical cords and the tip of my finger? It grew back.

 

 

 

 Irish - This gives me hope.  :rolleyes:

Yeah, that seems a little over protective, doesn't it?!?!  :P  HAHAHA

 

 

 

 

I still have a knot on my head from smacking myself with my car door!

 

Brandiwine, I did this today. True story!!

 

You all are cracking me up with your stories. :lol:  Makes me feel more "normal" too!! B)  LOL

Blame it on the damage your pregnancies/ births did. Or your hub. I never had grey hair until I married my hub! I did have a little before I had kids, so I blame it on hub.


Tripping, etc can be blamed on the dog or cat. They scoot away so quickly.... Don't have a pet? The blasted neighborhood dog ran in the door!

Klutzy is contagious. Hubs took off a bit of skin with the mandoline once, too, truth be told. That thing has been benched, :unsure: 

 

I just blame celiac for everything. Easier than admitting my boo boos .

My Grammy spent her entire life extremely healthy until she had lyme a few years ago. She still managed to always call me by one of her two daughters' names when I was little. One because I looked like her and the other because I acted like her. I managed to call my girls by the wrong name on occasion also.

 

Today we brought some groceries home and while we usually take my Jeep everywhere, lately I have been allowing my husband to drive his car since it is cheaper on gas. This means groceries in a real trunk. Well I managed to bend in to grab a bag and whack my head right off the trunk. Later I was getting something out of the car and whacked the back of my head leaning up out of the car.

 

My husband also frequently catches me giving door frames dirty looks. He always asks me what happened. The doorway walked into me. Obviously. <_<

Adalaide - Ouch! Darn doors....

 

After dinner today I was telling my 5 year old to "Put on your socks!" as he was heading out the door to find a toy he left on the snowy and wet law. He is holding up his foot and showing me his stocking foot and I'm yelling to "Put on your socks!"  Finally my hubby started yelling down the stars: "Shoes! She means shoes!"

 

I just started smacking my head on the table. :blink:

Laughter does good like a medicine:

 

We have an electric opener for the rear doors of our van.  One day I went somewhere by myself.  I stood by the front door of the van punching the button over and over.  Another day, I took our other car.  Right you are, I stood outside the door pressing the button waiting for the doors to open.  Finally, my son said this car doesn't work, Mom.  The next time we took that car, my son ran out and opened the door before I arrived.  The moral of this story is, always take the kids.  They will cover for you!

Mine is due to my head cold but today so far:

 

I somehow went out without brushing my hair. I realized it when i went to wash my hands in the public bathroom after i blew my nose. Luckily, my hair is short enough it doesn't tangle. :lol: But i stood there for a good couple of minutes before i realized what happened.

 

I also forgot to stash one of my water  bottles in my bag. Another thing i never forget to do.

 

Yeah... and then there was the incident last night. I thought i was all done with my homework and i was excited to go to bed early.... only to realize i did the chapter that is due next week instead of today. <_<

Hah... and here I thought brain fog was the ONLY celiac symptom I DON'T have. But when I read this post, I realized I've always qualified! I just always used the term "space cadet" instead.

 

At least now I don't have to blame it on old age and drinking....

 

 

Oh and for the record, I've locked my keys in the car three times in the last two months :(

Me too!!!! I could not figure out what people meant by brain fog (maybe i was too foggy?) and i figured it didn't apply to me. These past few month i've realized how often I mess up words or forget why I've gone upstairs or didn't buy the main item I went shopping for. It really is a bit disturbing. I used to be pretty sharp with a great memory - I could remember where on a page a great line in a book was but now... not so much!  lol :rolleyes:

Lol nvsmom...ohh youre totally describing me! and one of my worst faults is getting lost, specifically in my own village I should easily know. And on one occassion about 10 yrs ago, I was driving from Sheffield to Filey and ended up near London...for those not from the Uk, the travel time should've took an hour and a half but instead it took closer to 7 hrs ! :( (my family still won't shut up about it!) I never admit to it but I feel comfortable on here hehe :)
