You can't eat cereal with a spoon

No, you can't. I have had two colds in a row for the past 3 weeks. I have been miserable. I have no more brain cells left. This picture is not a set-up. This is actually what I sat down to look at this morning as I was pouring the milk. I grabbed the wrong utensil. The other day I took Kylee and Tyler ice skating and the lady told me the total, and I didn't have enough money. I was 21 cents short. So I gathered the kids, we ran back out to the car and I collected some change and ran back in. When I got to the cash register the lady was looking at me like I was crazy and handed me 79 cents and that's when I realize the total was $11.21 and I gave her $12.00, thinking it was only $11.00. She handed the money to me, and then I tripped all over my words trying to explain why I was an idiot. I hope one day I get my brain back!

I've only had two kids and they have taken my brain- I'm in trouble if we decide to have anymore. Sorry, but I laughed at your story. I think its funny knowing that I am not the only one that feels like they are losing their mind!

I definately lost my brain a long time ago. I've already warned Robert that soon there will be nothing left. Sickness only makes it worse. I am glad I am not the only one loosing my mind.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. Sometimes I look back over the last 10 minutes or so and think- "What was I thinking when I did that? It doesn't even come close to making sense!"

have you watched "Chaos Theory"
There's a person who likes to control everything, and then one day one little thing throws his life really out of whack.
Better to let those little things go. trust that God will take of the things that you can't.
I've wondered over and over what exactly is the purpose of this life... mostly I have come up with that it isn't brains or even knowledge... must be something important about all of these experiences that we face... training us to give in to God/letting that higher power take action in our life... so let the brain get lost; you're probably more useful :)
