    Ugh! Ever have a brain fog day?

    This morning (Saturday), I left my house at 7 a.m. for an event 92 miles away. Almost there and almost on time, I miss my exit and drive another 5 miles to correct my mistake. I finally get there and wonder, where is everybody? I pull out my papers and,........


    IT'S NEXT WEEKEND!!!!!! ARGH!!!!

    So, to salvage the day, I stopped at Hancock Fabrics and got a bunch of very pretty 1/2 price fabric. Yay! Maybe now I can almost look forward to doing it all again next Saturday!

    Now that I'm home, I better stay away from cutting and stick to pressing, studying patterns, or best yet, playing with the new QB!

    LOL I have done that before and it is funny now that I look back to the moment. I was going over the Ohio river from Cincy into KY and missed the exit to Louisville and before I knew it I was halfway to Lexington before I could turn around. So I drove to Lexington then to Nashville. Oh well it was a nice diversion.........

    I have those fog days regularly & senior moments too. They can be sooooo irritating. I am having fun right now exploring the new Board. Trying out all the forums.

    Must say though I would not mind having one like you just had.

    Look at the upside - now you know the way! Glad you were able to visit Hancock Fabrics and add to your stash...

    And I seem to have brain fog on a regular basis. A nap helps!

    I think my brain moved to Tahiti and forgot to tell me where it went! Does NOT help at all when the resident teen cannot stop rolling his eyes. (QUICK! Find him a job while he still knows everything!)

    Oh yes, Once had tickets to the big rodeo in Houston. Looking forward to the show, my bf now hubby decided we had time to test his new mud tires and got us stuck in the creek bed. I was upset because it took forever to find a wrecker big enough to get us unstuck so we missed the whole rodeo. Then I looked at our tickets, oops they were for the day before.

    What a great way to correct a mistake. Way to go girl!
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    It sounds like you made an otherwise bad day good, going shopping for half price fabric. Did the savings adjust the cost of your gas? I hope so, but I hope you enjoyed your shopping anyway. We all do things like that, and me more times than I want to admit.
    Each day is a blessing, so do something you love each day.

    I think we all have 'brain fog' days now and again. At least you turned a negative into a positive by doing some retail therapy. LOL

    Sounds like you made a wrong trip that turned out well-more fabrics. Love how you made the most of it as only quilters can do.

    Yep, made the best of it. I'm 39, so although my mother has been calling me middle-aged for at least 4 years, I still deny that it was a senior moment. Instead I'm going to blame either my blonde hair or typical hormones! It was a work-related event, so I scoured my emails, looking for any reason other than last year's was this same weekend, but no luck. The mistake was purely my fault.

    But the fabric? All good! I had a hard time choosing, so I bought a little of a lot of different fabrics. My savings did more than make up for the gas expense. I didn't take time to look up the smaller independent quilt stores, so maybe I'll do that next weekend when I have to go back!

    By the way, several co-workers knew I was going to this event this weekend, so other than my chosen few who know the truth , my official story on Monday will be that I took another look at the information and realized it's not until next weekend. WHEN I looked at those papers will be our secret!

    I've been there and done that too. I've showed up in my doctor's office a week early (twice) and have gone to my dentist's office the wrong day or time. One time the dentist's office was able to work me in. Another time I had to come home and go back in the afternoon...time appointment was for. One time my doctor's office called to change my appointment from a certain day to another...only thing was my card showed an entirely different day and time. So that time...THEY were wrong.
