My brain is just a sieve lately. Fitz and I lay talking this morning, him putting off the inevitable end of the year meetings at his school, me putting off the day alone with 7 kids (and a couple extras!). During our conversation I had a brainstorm for a blog topic, and I can clearly remember thinking that I will put that in the back of my head, so I can write about it after Fitz leaves for school. Unfortunately there must be a big hole in the back of my head, because it's gone now.
It doesn't help that our marriage consists of two of the most scattered people ever. Both of our brains race from thought to though, with no clear segues. I often wonder what anyone listening in might think. They would probably roll on the floor laughing. Or maybe walk away shaking their head. It's no surprise that this marriage produced some children with nearly identical thought patterns. Riding in the car the other day these are the questions that Charlie threw my way, rapid fire, barely giving me time to answer... "How long until the Year of the Dragon? Is it true that a baby is born every 8 seconds?" "What's for dinner? "Do you have to be a certain height to get your license?"
So maybe it will come back to me. Maybe it's not lost for good. Maybe it will swirl around in my head today, and filter itself up to the top again so I can remember what I wanted to write. But chances are, if it does make it back, I will be in a place without a computer, I will put it in the back of my head, and it will get lost in the void once again.
