TWTW - the one with forgetfulness

You are a forgetful motherfucker if you have to go to Target twice in one weekend and the grocery store twice in one weekend. Friday night was Target and the grocery store round one followed by a concert and late dinner. MFD was playing for his old band teacher Mr. Nelson in the Tri County Band. They closed out with God Bless America, and all of the old people in the audience stood up and sang and surprise I cried. I am a big patriotic crier.

By the time we left there after 10, I was hangry, so MFD had to take me to the diner.
I was up late finishing a book Friday and slept in to get nine hours. It was glorious. Plus I got some new Stella & Dot stuff in the mail which started the day off well. I planted over 30 bulbs, and dear sweet plant loving baby jesus let them flower or I will be laying down in the empty spots in my flower bed crying come June.

I spent some time with my genius happy beautiful niece Lola Jean before taking Pop out for an early bird special dinner. The man goes to bed at 6:30. After I dropped him off, I did Target take two and picked up some flowers that I planted before it rained. Saturday night I was putzing around in my new Target pajama pants, drinking sleepy time tea, painting my nails (OPI Lost My Bikini in Molokini) and sort of paying attention to VEEP which MFD is re-watching.

Sunday was fresh sheets, tired dogs, and coffee at the hospital with Pop. Gamma has been in the hospital and a rehab place and back to the hospital for over a week, so please say a prayer for her if you can spare one. I went to the hospital Sunday morning and missed the March for Babies on Sunday which was a total bummer but Team Eva the Diva kicked it out in the rain.

After I took Pop home from the hospital, I did grocery store take two, then bummed around with the dogs before we headed out to MFD's great Aunt Mary's funeral. Tough one - I so enjoyed her. She was a great, strong lady loved by many and a true matriarch of her family.
Weekly food prep: two zucchini pies, one for Pop and one for this week's breakfasts; lunch is soup out of the freezer; snacks are bell peppers and bananas; dinners are baked queso tacos with fresh salsa; turkey burgers (unmade here) and steamed veggies. The rest of the turkey burgers went into the freezer.

And today? Today I left my planner at home. About that forgetfulness I mentioned in the title...it has spread like wildfire. 

Good thoughts to our Caldwell family today as they lay Aunt Mary to rest. 

That's all I got this weekend. What about you?

  4. Forgetfulness is terribly catching it seems! I am sitting here surrounded by lists of to dos because I can't keep letting things slip by! Too many trips to the store are driving me mad!

    Prayers for your Gram, hope she gets better soon. Also sorry for your loss 😞

  5. Jason knows when I get hangry, if I don't eat, I will most likely kill him. Sorry to hear about your aunt - she sounds like a wonderful lady. I also got some new Stella and Dot this weekend - it's sooo pretty!

  6. Sending all kinds of love and thoughts to you and your family today, and prayers for your grandma. Your Pop is lucky to have you around to help out and be there for him. Love that you took him to an early bird dinner. I have been known to tear up at the patriotic songs too. At the very least I get goose bumps. Every. Single. Time.
    Hoping Monday goes better for you even without the planner!

  7. That Breyer's ice cream is my current obsession! It's soo good! Also, I think it's amazing when companies have been around that long. :)

  8. I'm sorry about your great-aunt :(
    I definitely wouldn't have minded two Target runs last weekend but I've kind of put myself on a freeze. I just totally paid off the Target card so I'm trying to enjoy that 0 balance for a while :)

  9. We are a very lucky family. Lucky means blessed to me, we are way lucky. Things happen so fast sometimes. And always for a reason. Grateful to infinity and beyond. Thanks to my Stephanie. She's the head grandchild! Love. Your. Momma.

  10. I'm sorry you lost an incredible lady in your family.
    I hate that I make lists so I dont forget & then forget the lists.
    9 hours of sleep? I honestly dont know the last time that happened to me.

  11. Awww I am sorry to hear about your loss and your Gamma being in the hospital. I hope that she gets better soon! On lighter things, I am a patriotic crier as well. And ummm is that birthday cake ice cream?!! Sounds dangerous!

  12. Sorry to hear about your Aunt May passing. It sounds like she was an incredible lady. I had two grocery store runs this weekend ... for one stinking item, but it was an important one. Sigh. Here's hoping our forgetfulness forgets us and moves on to someone else!

  13. I'll be praying for your Gamma and also for Aunt May's family/friends♥ Forgetfulness always seems to spread with me too... forget one thing, I might as well stay home because I'm destined to mess up a dozen other times that day!

  14. I hate making two trips because I forgot things but it seems to be a regular occurrence. I now only allow myself to go to stores if I have made a list of things I need.

  15. Thinking of your family today, sorry for your loss :( I hope she lived a fabulously long life, as it seems many of your family members do. Still, it's never enough time.

  16. PJ ended their concert on Friday with the Star Spangled Banner. It was weird but it worked.

    Hope Gamma feels better soon, and I love that you cooked for your Pop.

    We know I'm forgetful. I've learned to accept it.

  17. I love your flowers! We didn't get to do much outside... because, rain everyday! We did manage to play a couple games of Googly Eyes and Heads Up with the kiddos, so there were lots of giggles in our house :) I am saving your turkey burger recipe!

  18. I am such a patriotic crier. Fireworks, music, speeches....it doesn't take much. I was in the airport last year on 9/11 and everyone stopped and held hands and said the pledge of allegiance and I LOST IT.

  19. I hate it when I have forgetful moments! On the bright side though, you probably have everything you need from the grocery store now, right? I'm praying for your grandmother! It's always hard having somebody you love in the hospital!

    ReplyDelete
  20. So sorry for your loss :(

    Also, that ice cream...PLEASE TELL ME IT HAS CRUNCHIES IN IT A LA CARVEL CAKE. I CANNOT.

    You also go to Target a LOT.

  22. Thinking good thoughts for your grandma!!! So sorry you all have to worry about right now. I'm sure your GPa was happy to have you as company. That's pretty funny you went to those stores twice, ha. Been there and that's why amazon prime is my friend.

  23. There is nothing worse than having to go back to the grocery store or Target because you've forgotten something. Love the purple OPI!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I hate when I forget something and have to return to the store within the next 2-3 days. I'm so sorry for your loss.

  25. Your Pop is so cute! i actually chuckled when I ready that he goes to bed at 6:30 pm. I've never met anyone that does that...to funny! Love that purple nail polish color!

    ReplyDelete
  26. So sweet of you to take care of your Pop.

    That ice cream...Looks delish.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Love that Pop. Hoping Gamma is better (and home) soon!! That ice cream looks amazing... I'm looking at it like the pups are looking at MFD and his string cheese.

  28. I opened that "baked queso tacos" link and instantly cursed out loud because I miss Velveeta so fucking much. Sure, there are ways that I can alter a recipe to suit a world with no Velveeta, but honestly, it's not the same. Oh well. There are A LOT more terrible things going on in the world than me not having Velveeta, so I will shut up now.
