Mom Brain

The last post reminded me of something else I was going to write about.

Has anybody out there ever experienced what some call "mom brain"? Well, that's been happening to me a bit these days. I'm losing my mind. When we got into our car accident, I had to call MPI to report the claim. The woman on the other end of the phone asked me some questions, to most they would be fairly easy to answer. I got stumped on this particular one:

Woman on the phone: What is the year, make and model of your vehicle?

Me: Ummm.... (a long pause) it's a 98'...... (pause again) it's a van, I can't seem to remember (more pausing, in the mean time I'm thinking won't the lady help me out? I gave her my license plate number and I figured she had the info up on her computer, but no, she remained silent)

I knew it was like a Caravan, but that wasn't right. I almost thought I would have to phone her back after I went to check it out. Finally, after what seemed like forever, it came to me.

Me: It's a Plymouth Grand Voyager

Finally. I haven't felt quite so stupid in a long time. She then proceeded to tell me that my van was dark blue in color. She knew the color, but wouldn't tell me what make and model it was? If she would have asked me what color the vehicle was, I could have answered that no problem! (I know, she was probably verifying that I indeed was the owner or something like that)

That wasn't a very good day for me to begin with, so I'm sure it played into my memory loss. I'm just hoping it will come back someday!

Thanks for the reminder. I keep meaning to take a picture, but I always forget, or when I do think of it, I'm not looking very good. Can't have that. I will get on it. I don't even look that bad today:)
