I can't think real clear-like, and I can't come up with words. Not just words to hook together here on the blog, but nouns. In conversation. Especially proper nouns.
Last night I was trying to explain that Hotel Circle in San Diego wasn't too far from Sea World, only I'd lost the words SEA WORLD, so I panicked for a minute, then said: "you know, that...Shamu place."
So you see. Shamu place. Is what it's come to over here.
There have been, like, tons of other examples of my problem, which I would freely share, but I can't actually remember any of them.
Sure, I could be sleep deprived, but we can all be honest here, right? We've seen this blog going downhill since the insomnia started in October. Or really, maybe since I started barfing last July 20? (Is like my own personal December 7, 1941, a day that lives in infamy.) (I'm really surprised I came up with the word infamy.) And the baby is pretty good about eating and going right back to sleep during the night. I think I'm getting more sleep than last month, when I was up every 45 minutes to pee and do laps around the bedroom to loosen my stiffening back.
Anyhow, I'm thinking this new level of dumb must be hormone related. As in, all the estrogen has left the building, and now I'm in shock, which has developed into some sort of walking coma?
Honestly, I got no other ideas. I'm just hoping it's...what's that word? The one that means not gonna last forever.
Has anybody else ever misplaced their words? Or had other weird post-pregnancy symptoms? Anyone? Anyone?
