bipolar mom shares her insights on everyday life

I usually think a lot in the shower.  I don’t know why.  Maybe it is because I don’t have anything else to look at, enclosed in that “just bigger than a voting booth” space, other than my body (shiver).  Maybe it the relaxing warm water.  But, somehow, I always come up with something to blog about.

Then I get out.

Apparently, drying myself off also wipes away any memory I have of what I was thinking in the shower.  I know I had a great idea (or at least a good one) for today.  No idea what that might have been.  None.  I even had a great ending sentence!  Mind.  Blank.

So this morning, I’ve been trying to remember.  Let’s see…I walked.  Nope, that wasn’t it.  I cleaned the basement a little.  Nope.  Already wrote about that.  The exterminator is coming to give us a bid on getting rid of the fleas in our yard.  YUCK!  Definitely not it.  I just finished the book Twilight, but this isn’t a blog about books.  I know  it wasn’t about the Democratic National Convention or anything political.  You don’t need me to tell you who I’m going to vote for and why.  Who do you think I am?   George Stephanopoulos?  (And, yes, I had to look up the spelling of his name.  Can you imagine having a crush on him and writing that name all over your spiral notebook?  Wow.)

So, other than to let you know that after my last blog, I didn’t drink coffee for 5 days and just now get back to you.  I just don’t remember what I was going to treat you to today. 

Oh, well, I’ll think of it eventually.  Probably the next time I’m in the shower.  Besides, unlike many electrical products, this laptop did not come with the warning Do Not Use in Bathtub so I am certain it is safe.

    I can definitely relate. This happens to me a lot with song lyrics. (I’m a songwriter.) I’ll think of one good lyric and I’ll just roll with it… I’ll make up lyrics in my head as I go along and, if they’re good, get very excited about them. Sometimes I’ll even hum a little melody so that I can remember it until I’m able to write it down.

    But it’s true. As soon as you turn off the water and start to dry off… memory is gone.

  2. Too funny! That happens to me all the time! =)

  3. I think maybe you should have Tom stand around holding a tape recorder just in case you come up with a good idea – when he doesn’t think this is a great idea, just remind him of his sofa idea. LOL
