I think that I need a vacation (and my day off on Friday should help).
Thanks to budget cuts in the state of Maryland, I work in four-- YES- four schools.  Up two schools from last year, and up about 1,300 students from last year.
Sweet, right?
Anyways, I work in the boondocks.  Every day of the week, I drive down the same winding country road until I come to a fork.  On Mondays, I go left.  On Tuesday and Fridays, I go right.  On Wednesdays and Thursdays, I stay straight.  That is a lot of information to remember.  In the boondocks, all of the roads look the same, so I really need to make a concerted effort to remember what day of the week it is.
Today, I was talking on the phone with my mother while driving to Boondock School #3.  While I was halfway down the road I thought to myself, crap self, I think you forgot to turn on X road-- isn't this the gas station that you usually pass on Thursday?(-- it wasn't).  I pulled a U-turn and headed back down the way I came.  After a few miles I thought to myself, hmmm, this does not look familiar.  What day of the week is it? Where am I going? Why can't I find my road?  Turns out, I was headed the correct way the first time and I had to pull another U-Turn.  
Suffice to say I was 10 minutes late to work.  Crap.  
Is it dementia or do I work too much?

Haha. This is too funny. For almost 7 years I worked in two different dental offices. One on Mon and Wed, the other Tues and Thurs. And depending on the day of the week I also had different hours. Every night I had to decide what day today was, what day tomorrow was and what time I had to set my alarm. After awhile it became second nature, but still tripped me up now and again. Luckily they were in opposite directions, I only started driving to the wrong one a few times, and it was usually when on my phone as well. Oops! Guess that's why they say not to talk while driving, haha!
