Distracted MUCH????

I've been on the road a lot lately during the work day traveling from place to place interviewing students for our new magnet school, i.e. my new job. I love talking to these students and their parents. I leave a school after three or four hours of interviews ALL excited about what we're getting ready to do for these kids.
Yesterday, I thought I would stop at Chick-fil-a for lunch on my way back to the office. I parked...grabbed my wallet...went inside...walked to the ladies room...used the ladies room...washed my hands...walked back outside to the car...drove away.

So...what's wrong with this picture. NO FOOD....I completely forgot to order!!! I just got in the car and left. About a minute into my drive away I realized what I'd done and turned around and headed for the drive through.

And believe you me...that's nothing compared to the $237 speeding ticket I got the other day leaving another school. I was so deep in thought that I didn't notice when the 55 mile speed limit on the country road slowed to 35.

I ain't EVEN kidding!!


  1. So feeling this post today. I have been so swamped at work, I don't know which way it up.

  2. How inconsiderate of that policeman to give you a ticket. Does he not know that teachers are always in deep, important, world-changing thought??? Gosh! Love your Chick-Fil-A story! xoxo

  3. Whoa! Now that's distracted. Funny, but distracted.

    Good thing you're enjoying what you're doing.

    I'm just sayin'

  4. I'm jealous of your job. Sounds fun and rewarding. I want to work again.
    Not now, when kids get older.

    Anyhoo, I have left my groceries at the store. Paid and just walked out the door. Then of course I chased out by the checker.

    Kids just suck the brains right out of you.

  5. Yikes $237.00????!!!! That hurts!


  6. I have done that so many times! (Left my food... not the ticket!) I think I am completely ADD most of the time. Wait, no, that's not it. I am just a mother!

  7. I am new to your blog. I thought that was an April Fool story. Was it not?! LOL

  8. Lord have mercy Belle...$237??? Ouch! I know that issue though...I've gone into a gas station, paid for my gas, and got in my car and drove off! I did this early one morning in Palm Springs, drove around all day running errands and then the low-fuel light came on. It STILL took me a good five minutes to realize what I had done!


Please makes me HAPPY!
