My Distractions

I can get distracted quite easy. Angry Husband even jokes about it. It’s like ohh, Julie, look at this shiny metal thing…

So I’m in the drive-thru line at Del Taco this morning. Yea, not too healthy, I got tacos, right? I pulled up to the window and paid with my debit card. I tend to multi-task alot, especially with my Blackberry. While waiting for my food, I realized ooohh I need to call Monique. So I call Monique because I had to tell her that they had Lucky jeans at Stein Mart. I never shop there but decided to go in there and browse. I know that Monique likes Lucky jeans sooo I had to call her right.

Guess what Julie did. She then continued driving back home and actually pulled into the garage. As I was getting my things out of the car, I realized, “Where is my food?” Umm, I got soo distracted talking to Monique about random things, I forgot my food. I had to drive all the way back to get my food.

Monique thought it was hilarious of course. But really, I do things like this all the time. Please say I’m not the only one who does this.

At least you only left the food...not the debit card :) Remember last week when I was on the phone with you trying to find the PD down by my grandma's and I passed Stella's preschool exit on the freeway. Does that count?

I have done this more times than I care to admit. Even at the grocery store.

Totally understandable and simple mistake anyone can make. But, beep...beep...beep...back up! Lucky Jeans at Stein Mart!

I've done that before and only noticed because the drive-through worker was hanging half her body out and waving her arms like a crazy person...and I'm pretty sure it, too, was at a Del Taco.

You are funny! I lost my car before in a parking lot too but that is probably the worst thing I have done.

OMG that is funny. I've almost done that but not quite yet. I do wonder how I keep my head attached with 3 kids though. :s

I do silly stuff like this all the time. I once lost my car in the mall parking lot. I thought someone stole it. In reality I just did not park where I thought I did. I even had mall security involved. But before they called the police they drove me around the whole parking lot just to make sure it was not there. And sure enough it was. I guess that I just get so excited about going shopping I don't pay attention to where I park.
