Losing My Mind

If I lose one more thing, I am going to lose my mind! Wednesday, I was holding directions to someone's house in my hands. 15 minutes later I could not find them anywhere. I looked and looked for 10 minutes and finally had to call her to get the directions again. I was late because of this...and frustrated!
Today I have searched the house for the pillow with a sham on it from Ava's bed. It has completely disappeared. How can a bed pillow disappear? One day it's in her room. The next day I can't find it anywhere. There are only so many places it could be, and it isn't in any of them!
I am the kind of person that HATES looking for things. It makes me feel like an unorganized mess. And I feel it is a huge waste of time. But, things in this house have a way of walking off when least expected. I can only blame so much on the kids, and then I have to face the fact that I am part of the problem. My brain is functioning at a much lower level than it was before I had kids. I really can't explain it, but somebody should research and document this phenomenon.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. I feel like I have lost my mind constantly since having Caleb. I am constantly thinking of what I need to do for him, the house, etc. that I dont have much room in there anymore. :)

Oh my! I haven't had a mind for almost 6 years now. My mind's capacity was diminished even further after having Ellie Beth. I don't think I can have any more children or there won't be anything left!
