    You sound like me. I go to the store for one thing and come out with a cart full but have not bought what I went for.

    Of all the things I have lost or misplaced, I miss my mind the most.

    When ever I have my grandkids, my mind always runs far, far away!LOL!! For example, I let my DGD hold my purse at the mall yesterday. Lexie sat it down and forgot to pick it back up. I didn't realize it until about 10 minutes later. Thankfully it was still sitting in the chair at the nail salon where she left it. I think my mind permanently left me because normally I would never let DGD hold or carry my purse.

    I feel that way too. I always forget unless I have my list. If I go upstairs for two items, I will come down with one and have to return for the other. I got distracted by something while up there.

    If I don't make a list of what I need ---might as well forget the lost mind. If my brain was not in my skull I would lose that also.

    Just think of the brainpower we could have if we just found the missing brains! Seriously! But just think, now you get to go back to JoAnne's!! :-)

    Here is my DH's theory---There is a hook hanging in the door that we do not seem to see. The door opens the hook swoops down and does a brain snatch,. Then we wander around like kids in our favorite candy store filling our carts. The only way to avoid the hook is to make sure you have your list grasped firmly in your hand before getting out of your car. While in the store DO NOT set your list down until you have completed it and have passed safely beyond the cash register.This method has saved me from those ""Why did I buy this'''' and lots of 2nd and 3rd trips to get that spool of odd colored thread I went to get on the 1st trip.

    You sound like me. Here's a poem I have hanging on my sewing/computer room:
    I like my bifocals
    My dentures fit me fine
    My hearing aids are perfect
    But how I MISS MY MIND!

    My problem is that I usually forget the list as well :-). Going back to JoAnns for a second time shouldn't be all that bad. Just return the batting, looking for the backing and then look at all the sales!

    I'm right beside you. I don't bother making a list on paper cause I always forget to take it. So I write on the palm of my hand. Won't forget or lose it that way.

    I have a memo app on my smartphone. I use it when I go to the grocery and for all other errands with a list for that particular store. I just need to remember to take my phone. LOL!

    If you find yours maybe you could help me find mine...3 times now, yesterday and today, I have been furious with my sewing machine because I couldn't get the bobbin thread to come up. Finally it dawned the top thread I had in my hand was not threaded through the needle. How do minds just walk off on something you've done thousands of times? grrrrr

    My mind has a way of taking a break without my knowledge. DUH!!! I spend so much time wandering around my house trying to remember what I came into a certain room for or going to a room to get something and when I leave the room I don't have it and have to go back again.

    At least we all seem to be in the same club!!! LOL

    I would be totally lost without the little yellow notepad on my iPhone! I leave notes to myself all the time.

    When you find it, tell it to send mine home since they must be together somewhere. I can just picture 2 little kids hand in hand skipping down the road. Yep, there go our brains.
