Where Faith, Food and Life Converge

Monday Mondays 1.19.15


Do you ever feel like your brain is disappearing?   And yes, TW, I’m sure you’ve definitely felt that! 😉   I got up extra early and spent most of the morning getting a package ready to send to my son overseas for his birthday.  Even though I don’t know if it will last without getting moldy before it arrives, I nonetheless made him a mini version of his favorite birthday cake – Jimmy Carter Peanut Butter Cake – in the wee hours of the morning so I could get it in the mail first thing today.  It normally takes 7 to 8 days for mail to arrive there, so I thought that if I was at the Post Office when it opened, he’d definitely have it by his birthday next Tuesday.

Except…  I realized it’s Martin Luther King, Jr Day, and there is no mail today.

I could kick myself for my stupidity, honestly.  I mean, I knew it was a holiday today; I even have plans to Skype my son overseas since he has today off as well.  But why my brain didn’t register that when I got up at 4:30?  Or at 6:30 when I was online reading about Oprah marching in Alabama over the weekend in honor of MLK Day?

My only excuse is that some days there are just too many thoughts swirling around in my brain for everything to fit. I’m often so busy planning for C, D and E, that I become short-sighted and lose track of A & B.  Um, sure, that’s absolutely my excuse.

Either that, or the wafting aroma of a chocolate cake baking so early overwhelmed all my other faculties  so much so that I just couldn’t focus.

Or maybe it’s just both.  Yeah, that’s the ticket.
