I haven’t posted in the last two weeks because I’ve been very, very busy. I’m in Arizona helping my sister and her husband with their 13-month-old little girl and newborn baby boy (he was born last week and is an absolute joy!). They are also in the middle of a move. It’s been a little hectic, to say the least.
Now to the post.
So, with all of this going on, I’ve been a bit sleep deprived. I’m sure you mothers out there know what it’s like. Yes, I’m often sleep deprived, but the exhaustion children cause is like nothing else out there.
Anyway, my sister, niece, nephew and I are driving through the drive-thru at Sonic the other day. It was happy hour, so we had a long wait. The two kids are happy in the back, my sister is making phone calls, and I’m checking my email on my phone as I inch the car forward (I’m a safe driver, I swear). We continue like this, all happily doing our things. La la la.
Suddenly, my sister looks at me, after hanging up with some idiot contractor, and asks, “Did you order?”
What? I look to my left and see that I have passed the little order station. In fact, it’s two cars back. And no, I didn’t order.
I have never felt like such a dumb blond in my life. Ever. (Justin, if you can think of others, I don’t want to hear them). So, we get to the window, I tell the cute little 16-year-old what happened and he took our order. He was very sweet, but you could tell he was laughing at me inside. Thankfully we were at Sonic, where they are used to bringing your food to your car, so it was no big deal to pull the car out of the way and wait for him to bring us our drinks.
My sister just looked at me and said, “I’m glad I’m not the only one who gets her brain sucked by children”.
Speaking of children, the munchkin has caught on to the fact that I’m leaving her in her highchair extra long so I can get this post out. Time to go!
ETA: Just got back from our (almost) daily trip to Sonic. This time it was just me and the munchkin. I did it AGAIN! How spacey am I??? Those blasted lines make you think that you have time to get things done, but noooo. This time, though, the line was short enough that I just drove around again, putting my phone away and leaving my window rolled down. Nothing like the AZ heat to remind you why your window is down. I’m such an idiot.
