Absent minded professor or special needs mom???

I have many excuses--but they all sound a bit like "my dog ate my homework."

I looked down today, while picking up Alex after school, and realized I had on one black shoe and one brown shoe. Not one black sock and one brown sock. Two different shoes. Different cuts. Similar, but still distinct in shape and style as well as color.

Thankfully I didn't go to campus today. I had been to the grocery store, and hopefully anyone that noticed just thought I looked like a nice, eccentric middle-aged woman. Hopefully they didn't think-- "poor thing--she must be from the group home. I wonder where her keeper is?"

Makes me think I have real potential to become the "absent minded professor." I'd like to blame it on Joseph and Alex. A mom with special kids has her own set of special needs... but I don't really think Alex and Joseph were on my mind as I pulled on comfy clothes to work at home today.

I thought of Sarah's blog from a year or so ago asking if her readers ever wear socks inside out... Oh, my. Inside out socks sounds like high style to me!

I fell on Tuesday. Wiped out on the sidewalk in front of the craft store. Flat on my face. Luckily I have just bruises to show for it. I got up as quickly as I could... In my mind all I could hear was a loudspeaker calling "Clean up on Aisle Three."

Oh my, Aunt Lora what are we going to do? I say we go to the outlet malls or let's get pedicures! It will make you feel better......
When I fell in this crazy weather, the first thing I did was look around to make sure nobody was looking!!!! Glad your OK.

Reminds me of the time when my 2 were small and I took one navy and one black dress shoe on vacation. I was stuck if I wanted to dress up (we did that back in the 70s).
