This morning Monkey and I went to the gym. After giving her a handful of times to make sure she would be fine with me dropping her off in the kids club while I worked out I decided that since she leaves there smiling and happy and always seems to have a good time I would sign her up for a membership instead of paying a fee each time.
She was so excited to go play when we went in that she almost ran straight to the door of the kids club room when we walked in the building. It was adorable. Once we got all signed up for her membership I took her over to play and then headed for the locker room to get changed for my workout.
After digging through my bag I realized that although I had my pants, shoes, socks, water bottle, towel, iPod, and even my sports bra but no matter how much I searched my bag I couldn’t seem to find a shirt. What was I supposed to do now? I had just signed Monkey into the kids club and she was happily playing and I was already there in the gym ready to workout.
I am such a dork! How did I manage to remember a pile of snacks, sippy cup and diapers, for Monkey, yet I couldn’t even remember that a shirt if usually a good thing to have when going out in public.
I knew if I drove all the way back to the house to pick up an appropriate shirt to work out in I may get distracted by things around the house and not make it back. So I went ahead and decided to just workout in my nice Banana Republic top. It was an odd feeling to be thoroughly working up a sweat in my lovely dark orange top. It also felt odd to realize as I walked to the kids club door that I had completely soaked through my top with sweat. I am not sure I will ever look at this shirt the same way again.
How is it that I can get both Luke and Monkey out the door with all necessary items and then some, but I can’t remember to pack the one of the few things I need. Hopefully next time I will think to double check my bag before I make my way there. I probably stood out a bit during my run on the treadmill.
Please tell me I am not alone in being so darn forgetful!
