Head Colds and Missing Teeth

I poured myself a mug of coffee just now, and spent nearly a full minute trying to figure out how I had managed to only brew enough for one serving. I was certain that I had made the usual amount... Sighing, and resigning myself to brewing more later if I wanted it, I trudged over to my desk.

Where I found a full mug of coffee that I had poured a few minutes earlier.

Good grief. Grey hairs and forgetfulness at 37 years of age... what's next?

In other news, we once again have head colds, no thanks to the Kindergartener and his lovely classmates mingling their germs in a perpetual cycle. At least this feeling-poorly makes me experience less guilt about spending a rainy morning (in between chores) parked right here:
The walking germ-center lost another tooth last night, while eating his supper. He was so excited I thought he was going to bounce right into the atmosphere. Honestly, I remember losing teeth as being a bit on the traumatic side. Not this kid. He is thrilled to have a giant hole in his smile.
Whatever.

I hope you're all healthy soon. I think the thrill about missing teeth is a boy thing.

I have head cold too!!! Yes I am also getting very forgetful. I rang the docs for an appointment recently, hung up and forgot the time they told me and had to ring them back!! So embarrassing. I think it is tiredness that does it. x

I called the vet to make an appointment on Monday, only to call 20 minutes later forgetting that I had already called. I tried to make another appointment for the same dog for the same problem, I thought I was losing my mind!
Luckily I just had surgery so I blamed it on the Vicodin!

My son lost the exact same tooth a couple of weeks ago. How funny!

Whatever makes him happy! I had to laugh at the extra coffee cup. I'm sure it's from the stuffy head, but it still makes me feel better about my own befuddlement. Now let's see if I can up my score to 31 on the Verification game!

Laughing at your title Beth!! lol Can't help it!! Glad you found your missing coffee.. He is so cute minus his tooth!! I remember my dad trying to tie my tooth to the door knob and slamming it shut.. It didn't work.. I went with the door.. Maybe that is why I had a terror of losing teeth! lol Hope ya'll are feeling better soon!
