I did it again. . . I left the grocery store today, drove home, put Anjelia down for a nap and went to unload the groceries only to find them missing. This is the third time, at this particular store, that I’ve drove off abandoning my groceries in the cart in the parking lot! I’m known there as the D girls’ mom. The folks at this small town store are so kind. One of the gals hauled my six grocery bags to my home on her lunch break!
I’ve also pulled this stunt at Target! I did a little shopping there one day when Anjelia was an infant. I was driving down 39th street headed toward the highway. As I was passing the mall, I noticed there was quite a bit of road noise. After looking back I realized that my back hatch on my van was completely open! I must’ve looked like a real ding-dong driving down a busy street like that. After embarrassingly pulling over in the mall parking lot to shut the thing, I noticed that my stroller and bags were missing! Quickly, I turned around and drove back to Target, relieved to see my stroller and bags waiting for me in the parking lot!
Do you think it could be ADD? Or is this just a busy mom syndrome? Or did I inherit it? My mom has some really funny stories! Like the time she thought her cars doors were frozen shut. She hooked up an extension cord so she could melt the ice with the blow dryer. It didn’t work. That’s when she realized the car doors were locked!
