Staying Ahead,,,or Behind

This is the way My Brain looks today. My Brain is a nice sized calendar book where I can jot down the things I need to do so that I don't forget to do them. I have 6 years of Brains stored for future reference (for which I have no idea whether I'll ever need, but if I throw them out, I'll surely need). The first things in My Brain to be done today are for the Improvement District, except for the entry jotted on a pink sticky note, that one's for the farm. There are a few personal items that need addressing too, if I get around to them. If I don't, they'll be moved to the tomorrow section of My Brain. You can probably tell at a glance that My Brain is mostly dead, but occasionally it keeps me in line so that things get done around here.

There were the Pee Wee basketball games on Friday evening and (too early) Saturday morning. Zach's team won Friday, and lost by 1 point on Saturday. He sure looks anxious in this picture.

Alexis, (aka, the Chick) getting ready to blow out the candle on her birthday cake on Saturday afternoon. The cake was delicious!

Paco was one of the guests at the birthday party. If you click the picture to make it a bit bigger, you can see the feather sticking out of the side of his mouth. Poor Paco won't be attending any more birthday parties. (that's a joke, he found one of Odie's feather's floating around and somehow it ended up in his mouth).

****My son called a few minutes ago and Alexis had her surgery to remove tonsils, adenoids, and to insert tubes in her ears. They're already out of the hospital and on their way back to my daughter's to spend another night in case there are any problems. I sure hope the Chick starts feeling lots better now!

I'll be around to visit as soon!

So glad Alexis is doing good. Lately it seems as like I don't know if I'm coming or a going either and I don't throw away old calenders. You never know when you might need to reference a certain date.

Remember to put your feet up from time to time and give the brain a rest! Wishing a quick recovery for Chick...not feeling well is no fun!

Awwww poor Chick, I do hope she feels better real soon! I remember when my boys had their tonsils and adenoids removed...they never had problems with their ears, though, thank goodness!

My brain isn't always in working order so that's why I have a calendar filled with writing all over the place! lol xoxo

I like the part of your brain being half-dead. So funny!

Glad Chick is feeling better. (Since I'm going back wards, I know that.)
