FFS Friday - Forgetful

I am in pain! I've been in pain for a week now and it's all my own fault. 
 
A few weeks before Christmas I was feeling overwhelmed so stopped doing everything and stayed at home as much as possible. It had the desired result and I felt much better, however current me is now regretting that choice.
When I stopped doing everything I stopped going to the gym. Three weeks later I've returned to the gym and I'm suffering. I did a leg workout on Friday and was still sore when leg day came around again the following Wednesday. 
 
Everything is sore, even my chest. A sensible person would have eased back into the gym. I am not a sensible person. I waltzed back in and did my normal workout assuming my usual "she'll be right mate" attitude. She is not right, she's not right at all, she's sore, very, very sore. 
Ah well, I only have myself to blame.
 
Enough whining. What's been getting my goat this week? Well, I'll tell you. 
Tiger's starting to confuse me in his old age. I'm just not understanding him. Maybe it's him, maybe it's me. I really don't know. For example, last week we had the following conversation:
 
Tiger: What's this? (holding up a recipe card).
Me: It's a protein ball recipe.
Tiger: For protein balls?
Me: Yes.
Tiger: What's it for?
Me: (very confused) A protein ball recipe.
Tiger: Yes, but what's with it?
Me: What do you mean?
Tiger: What's the deal with it?
Me (totally confused) It's a recipe to make protein balls.
Tiger: Yeah, but what's it for?
Me: I don't understand the question. It's a protein ball recipe, to make protein balls. 
Tiger: Yes, but what's the deal with it?
Me: I have no idea what you're talking about.  
Tiger: What's the recipe for?
At this point I just stopped answering him because I had no idea what he was on about. 

Can anyone shed any light? It makes no sense to me at all.

You know what else has been annoying me? Eljay's dentist. He had an appointment this week. 
They sent me a reminder at the start of the week. 
They rang me the day before his appointment.
They messaged another reminder the day before his appointment and I had to reply with a YES to confirm we'd be there even though I'd only spoken to them a few hours earlier.
At 9pm the same day they emailed me regarding the clinic COVID practises. In this one they asked that I not bring any other children with me. Too late. 
They could have mentioned that the three other times they contacted me, then I might have been able to arrange someone to look after Chai, waiting till 9pm the day before the appointment is too late.

Surely that's a bit over the top. One or even two reminders are fine but four is just a little extreme. 

How funny would it have been if I forgot to go? Hahaha.
I didn't forget.

That's all I have to complain about. 
Have a lovely weekend.
