Today, while working with one of my kiddo’s, I asked him to name as many animals as he could think of.
Me: A worm is not an elephant
I mean, a worm is not an animal.
I’m thankful for the Speech Conference next week. Usually after a few weeks with no long weekends, I start to feel kinda restless and burnt out and feel like I need a refresher so to speak, but since I’m saving my PTO for the IVF, I don’t really have any extra days to take. Unfortunately, the stress surrounding this whole IVF mess isn’t helping, thus leading me to what I am affectionately calling “mush brain”.
After I had finished working with above kiddo, I took him out to talk to his mom and discuss his progress for the day. I started with “he did well today, we worked on…..”
And I drew a complete blank.
Luckily this child was not a first-timer, because I probably would have scared them away to a Speech Therapist with a better functioning memory.
On the way home, I may or may not have driven a couple miles with my left turn signal on. (What? I was going to turn left eventually). I honestly am not sure at what point in the drive it was switched on, I just noticed it at a stop light. Where I was waiting to go straight. Also, I have totally made fun of my mother for that exact same thing, commenting that the car needed a “hey you left your signal on, stupid” buzzing noise.
Thank goodness there are no plans in the near future to leave me home alone where I might leave the oven on. (I don’t iron, so that won’t happen either)
You know how computers or MP3 players will display “memory full”? when you try to add that one extra file or song and there isn’t enough room? That is how my brain feels right now.
This is your brain.
This is your brain on mush.
An Ode to Mush Brain
I’m staring into space
For an insane amount of time
Because I just can’t seem to think
Of any words that rhyme
I’ll turn my signal on right now
While my hand is free
I’m not gonna turn for awhile
But I’ll do it eventually
Having pizza tonight for dinner
In its circular baking tin
Yay! The timer’s beeping
But I forgot to put it IN (that’s what she said)
(yes, that actually just happened….and no, I did NOT do it on purpose)
