It's not just me

I don't know if it's stress or just having too much to do, but I am often absent-minded. One afternoon last week, I needed to melt half a stick of butter. I placed it in a bowl and went to do something else. When I came back I saw not a stick of butter but rather an egg in the bowl. I had absolutely no recollection of touching that egg, let alone cracking it!

Since I do crazy things like that on a fairly regular basis, I was rather happy when Mr. Incredible forgot something. As you know, he loves him some NASCAR. (I know that's terrible English, but that's how he would say it. *smile*) Most races are held on Sunday. However, last weekend's race was held on Saturday. Sunday morning, Mr. Incredible came into the kitchen where he proceeded to bemoan the fact that he had forgotten about Saturday's race. He only realized his mistake when he woke up during the night and was reviewing upcoming races, trying to go back to sleep. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who forgets things!

On a side note relating to NASCAR, isn't it strange seeing Mark Martin in a car other than the #6 Viagra car? He has done really well in the races he has run this year, and I hope he enjoys his semi-retirement. I can't imagine how stressful it must be to be traveling for 3/4 of the year!
