 "space cadet" 

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

 

 I called it "gluten head hell "  PLUS, I blame both of those, too..and celiac.

I  told ya, I blame celiac for everything.  It's the ultimate scapegoat. :D

 

Forget to do something? "Oh sorry, honey, gluten head."

Didn't screw the top on the coffee mug quite well enough this morning. Set it down to tie my shoes, went to lift it by the top....it went all over the family room floor I had just washed yesterday and..then trickled down the top stair....drip drip drip....arrgh!

 

Any of you hear that blue streak I cussed?........ because it was a  &^%$# doozy.

 

Hubs says "what happened?"

me: Celiac made me spill my coffee. (like it's a person)

Hubs: You know, it's been 2.5 years. Your brain works fine now and you don't have memory problems. You can't keep using that for an excuse..

Me: Using what?

I can't remember to take my meds - thyroid and supplaments. I set alarms on my phone and on my way to take them get distracted.....

Gotta improve because I just started t3 and my body gets really unhappy if I'm not on schedule.

Which reminds me, I'm about 3 hours late....

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:



Oh my goodness thank you!!!! I'm laughing in tears here!!!! I do similar things with my children, poor things their getting the hang of it though!!! Lol

I have come close to losing part of a toe many many times. Still, I never wear shoes in the kitchen. Impressive feat to manage to lose part of two digits in one night!

Was reminded of a few other "lucy ricardo" moments even while sitting.

 

I fell down a flight of stairs while carrying a laundry basket full of clothes in my parents' house. Caught my foot on the stair rug (we assume) and did a split like a cheerleader. Don't know how I did not split myself in two like a wishbone. Broke bones in my foot, banged up everything I own  and injured an area that no one should injure. (if you get my drift)   My Dad felt so bad, he ripped the carpet right out. 

 

When I still has major parasthesia from celiac, I was sitting in my chair, got up and before I realized my legs were still prickly and numb, (cause that was all the time really) I took a step, my ankle buckled underneath me and I heard Crack ,Crack, Crack. I swear, I saw stars and flying birdies and nearly passed out. The hubs was at golf and I could not get up off the floor for about an hour. That ankle took 5 months to heal properly. Torn ligaments and tissue damage. Doc said he wished I had just  broken it "like everyone else does" as it would have been easier to just set it.

 

And a classic gluten head moment (right after Dx and still "froggy")--

Put on some olive oil and garlic to saute for dinner, walked in the other room to ask the hubs a quick question and completely forgot about it.

Ever smell burned garlic and olive oil? yuck.............and the pan, well, let's just say it was given a proper funeral. :lol:

Oh my gosh Irish!! Those injuries sounds terrible!! I have killed at least 3 frying pans with oil, takes FOREVER to get that smell out! I'm so lucky that I didn't burn the house down. Eek.

I was a full on gluten head yesterday. Nothing I said made any sense!! Then at home last night I spaced off during a conversation with the hubs... He laughed at me and told me to get it together! I went to playful smack him, missed, and end up losing my balance and banging my hip into the counter. Good grief! X-)

Bahaha! That sounds about par for the course in this house. :lol:

 

Many many years ago I worked in a small local hotel at the front desk. I worked the occasional night shift which I rather liked. All was quiet by about midnight and I could do my rounds of the hotel and read a book. Then the bar closed at 2, after which I would mop and lock up. Then, until I had to go unlock doors at 5 in the morning I was free to do whatever I wanted which included napping in their incredibly comfortable chairs in the lobby. The owner of the hotel also owned a nightclub down the street and on Friday and Saturday nights the bouncer would come up, knock on the window and I would get the cash back from him. One night he comes and knocks gently on the front window, I wake from my little catnap and pop right out of that chair to let him in. Well, I fail to notice I had tucked my foot under me and it was completely dead asleep. I almost fell into the front window! I ended up on crutches for weeks.

Oh I am totally a "dodo" bird when glutened or legumed or a dozen other -ed's.

 

Not Molly -- I have done this too -- so many times -- the clutsy thing runs strong in me and my kids...funny thing is we are all much more coordinated since removing gluten -- imagine that ;)
