How to lose your mind without even trying

This past week I have been doing what is necessary to get everything that needs to be done, done. I have made a vast number of calls that needed to be called, reserved things that need reserving, and bought things that I really don’t need at all, but I just love shopping.

In the hustle and bustle of doing these many things, a few things may not have been properly documented.
For example: the name of the hotel I will be staying in when I reach Anchorage.

As I lay here doing the necessarily pointless after-midnight internet surfing I made the realization that I had no clue which hotel it was that has my credit card reservation.


Advice from a friend led me to check my credit purchases. Good idea in theory, unfortunately I haven’t stayed there yet, therefore they haven’t charged me yet.


Now what?

I did the only logical next step.
I pulled up Orbitz, typed in the day I wanted to stay and proceeded to call every bloody hotel with high-speed internet (my one requirement in lodgings).

“I have a stupid question. Last week I made a hotel reservation… I just can’t remember which hotel. I am listed with you?”

You cannot imagine how many times I was laughed at.

“Don’t forget this time!”

But, on the upside, I now know, and I doubt that I will be able to forget a second time.

This all goes with the day I have been having.

I had a girly doctor’s appointment today. I drove up to the office, prided myself on the fact that I had arrived 15 minuets early, and sauntered coolly up to the door.
Problem, my doctor’s name was not on the door.
It read, “Jackson and Jackson, attorneys at law”


I found a phone (having left mine back at the apartment) and called the proper office.
They moved a beautiful 3 years ago.
I have actually been to the new office.


I sped to the new building, scurried into the office, and was sweaty and gross by the time I made it into the back room.
To get felt up by a stranger.

All in all I would say it has been a successfully forgetful and hopefully forgettable day (except the bit about the hotel, that needs to stay with me).

It's great to hear that you are doing something so interesting with yourself...
