In the Know... Or not

The last week has found me responding to others' comments like so:

"Britney did what??? No, I haven't heard anything about that."

"Now, why is Hillary demanding that Barak return a campaign donation? No, I haven't heard anything about that."

"Seriously? The humidity here yesterday was 8%??? That's CRAZY! No, I didn't see any news yesterday."

People, I used to know what was happening in the world. Granted, none of the above listed information is last week's 9/11 by any means, but I used to watch the news at least once a week. I used to listen to the radio (which included news) on a regular basis. I have evidently moved into an information vacuum (but I still CANNOT get away from THIS!)

Here is what I do know:
  • When the kids have to be at the Bible Bowl lock-in, and what they have to bring.
  • When my local development officer has another out-of-town trip scheduled
  • When Jump-Rope-for-Heart donations are due
  • When Room 24 has to be at an all-school assembly
  • When book orders are due -- in Room 24, as well as Ashley's class
  • When Ashley has to be evaluated for soccer
  • When I'm getting my haircut
  • When the kids are getting their haircut
  • When the kids have to be at church for various and sundry LTC practices
  • The next time Troy sings at church
  • How many HOURS until spring break!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've only got so much brain power and room in there.

Sounds like you got it together to me. A brain can only hold so much before it starts to forgot and/or scramble the info.

Before you get married, your brain has to remember one schedule, so there are details of unimportance that can also be stored. Then when you get married, 2 persons schedules, and 2 lives organized, then add 2 kids and now you are responsible for 4 people, 4 schedules, there is no room left for non-priority issues, atleast that is how it seems.

I just read your comment on my blog. Yes, It's me! I tried to send you an email, but it wouldn't go through. So glad to find your blog and Tammy's too.

Knew about Britney--not Barak or Hilary--and I'm thinkin' Anna Nicole hung around about two weeks too long. . .I did not watch news all week--but I DID see Bob Woodruff on Tuesday night--UH-MAY-ZING. . .and, of course, Lost.

I'm all about being informed.

I SO know what you're talking about. News, what news? Unless I happen to catch an AOL headline while checking in on bloggy land, I really don't know what's going on...
