Ever lose your brain?

Yesterday, I:

  • Left Aaron's transfer board in the apartment, but thankfully he is awesome and managed six car transfers without it.
  • Decided to purchase a 60 lb. box of bookshelf from Target. This is dumb when you're as small as I am.
  • Left my keys in the shopping cart and frantically searched for them for half an hour, all the while knowing that someone in Target had them in their cart. Thankfully, she returned them just as I was begging the employees to page the whole store.
  • Tried to kill my husband by leaving his back wheels off the wheelchair. These wheels catch the chair when it reclines. 
  • Got nasty with the urology desk people because we'd been waiting the duration of the appointment and couldn't get a time hack out of anyone. Thankfully, Aaron is doing fine (can we all smile about that?) and I don't feel that leaving compromised his care. Urology has been difficult and we'll deal with them later.
  • Booked a flight on November 20th for apparently, November 21st and not the 28th. The return flight was right (this Friday) but US Airways scrapped the whole ticket and there went $357. Yay me. I suppose I'll try to take care of that today or tomorrow. In better news, she's coming today.

I think I'm done for now. Hope you all had much better Mondays!


  1. Hello! I just started reading your blog. My sister lost her left leg. She's an AK. She was told in the hospital that, with determination, she could do anything with a prosthetic that she could with her real leg. She has since proven that true by entering a snowboarding competition. She got 4th place in the world! Good luck to you and your husband!

  2. Now that's a rough day! I'll let the Southern in me come out and say Bless your heart! I hope today is infinitely better for you. :)

  3. Everyone is entitled to a bad day occasionally. Don't let it get you down.

  4. Ouch, that's one heck of a day. I hope you were able to find some time to relax from it all!

  5. We all have those days! If it makes you fell any better, yesterday at work first thing I did was spill coffee all over the desk and floor. Then a toilet in my room overflowed. Then I walked into a piece of equipment. I feel ya!

  6. Sounds like a crazy day. I hope things are getting better. I know I have said it a million times but make sure you are taking time for yourself.
