A mom’s random wish…or two

Picture 11I wish I had a mini recorder implanted into my brain.  Why is it that I have the best brainstorming sessions when I am nowhere near a computer and a pencil and paper are out of sight. Or I’ll happen to be somewhere that a pen and paper or laptop just can’t go…like in the shower, or as I am washing dishes…

Or as I’m swimming out in the ocean all by myself, with my family playing on the beach.  Free to swim until I can’t swim no more. I get the best thoughts during these mini swimming sessions.  I am not a big swimmer.  I don’t want to elude that I am.  I use the dip to cool off and feel that freedom of the vast ocean for just a minute. For that moment, I am alone in my thoughts. And it is awesome.

Back to that recorder…I suppose when I am washing dishes and a brilliant sentence pops into my mind and I am sure I won’t be able to duplicate it later, I could break right real quick and scribble down my thoughts on a pad of paper waiting near by.  And maybe keeping a pen and paper hanging outside the shower, with a glove that I put on because I don’t want to wet the paper and make my scribbles for not, could be a good idea.  Hmmm. Maybe. Maybe not.

Another location where I do some of my best writing in my head is while I am putting my son to sleep or up with my daughter in the middle of the night.  These are moments when I especially wish I had that little recorder embedded in my brain.  And a camera that magically takes pictures using my very own two eyes. I do try to do this.  Always taking note, or a picture with my memory.  But wouldn’t a mini recorder or camera eye be just so cool?  

Heck while at it, can you make it so I can wiggle my nose and the house would be clean, the laundry done and folded (and put away) and dinner was made?  Oh and make my kids like their vegetables.  That would be perfect!  Thank you.

  2. I know all about needing a “recorder” in my head. All too much I get “oh what a great idea” but then I get to where I can use it and…..BLANK.

  3. I swear, I just posted a really great comment and then forgot to fill in my info so it got erased when I submitted it! Please pass the brain recorder … LMAO

  4. I have to agree with you on this! I have often found myself wondering and wishing for the same thing! The moments for me when my bright ideas come in are usually when I’m taking a long and relaxing bath or just as I slip into bed. There have been a few times I have gotten up in the middle of the night to write my idea down, but very few as I hate getting up at 1 or 2 in the morning, but sometimes I just have to so my mind will rest! I’m glad to hear that I’m not the only one out there that this happens too. :)

  5. Yeah, I hear ya. And even if you do remember a little about it, you still don’t quite get all the nuances. Heh, I bet that’s why Twitter is getting so popular. A bunch of people tweeting their thoughts quickly before they forget them. :P

  6. lol I wish for the same thing. I always get really great ideas when I’m going to sleep or driving in the car. I always think, ‘ok remember this word, picture, thought and tomorrow blog it’ and then I wake up or get home and the thought, word and/or picture is gone. Just gone….like that! Ugg….so frustrating! If you find a mental mini recorder send me one too! lol ;)

  7. It would be SO nice to have a recorder in my head. I am the same, I always come up with thoughts, ideas or perfect sentences during those times when I’m not close to my laptop or pen and paper. I’m trying to get better at taking the time to jot things down using the notes app on my iPhone, but so many good things have left my head as quickly as they came.
