I've lost my mind!

This may not seem like a big deal to some but here's what I did last week (yes, I'm sharing my stupidity with you).

I have been working on writing thank you notes for people who gave us gifts for Elsie/Abigail or brought us a meal.

They are all written (thus far).

I put addresses and stamps on 1/2 of them and mailed them. I was still working on addresses for the other 1/2.

I realized several days after I mailed them that I only put $.41 on them and current postage is $.44. I also realized I didn't put my return address on any of them!

Ugh!

I also think I threw away the list of thank you's I had to write.

I attempted to recreate my list last night (at 3 am because I couldn't sleep thinking about it) and I'll have to write them all again, put postage on all again, and attempt to mail.

My main concern, however, is forgetting someone!

Yikes!

P.S. If any of you mom's have tips on how I can get my daughter to stop fake crying, I'd love to hear it. She's been doing it all morning. Completely fake but does it every 5 minutes. There goes the fake crying again. Hmm.

P.P.S. Here is what I have done so far this morning: fed baby, fed Abigail, made mexican chicken dish for crock pot, made rice, made two pecan pies, ate breakfast, unloaded dishwasher, reloaded dishwasher, read to Abigail, baked pies, hand washed dishes, fed baby, got baby to sleep in her crib (first time!), called guy about Sterling house roof, and blogged. I am getting ready to shower and hopefully go shopping this afternoon because it is such a warm day. I have to take advantage of it!

I really don't have any advice about the crying except to do your best not to reinforce negative behavior. Try to give her more attention when she is being good. That being said, I'm sure I'll be needing your help a lot. By the way, can I have the receipe for the mexican dish. That sounds good! Don't worry, I'll remind you :)

She did it less the more I just totally ignored her. Of course, I thought she was faking the car and I was starting to get upset at her and then she puked everywhere. So, that just goes to show me that I don't know everything!
