Another Example of Coordination Problems

I came back from my morning walk at 7:00 and went into our bedroom where Kate was sleeping. I asked her if she wanted to go to our monthly Y pancake breakfast. She said that she did. See was a little groggy and didn’t show a lot of enthusiasm. I told her that she didn’t have to go. I went back in a few minutes and saw that she had gotten up. I came into the kitchen to load some photos onto my computer. I like to leave at 7:45 for the breakfast which starts at 8:00. About 10 minutes later, she called to me and said she didn’t think she would go. I met her in the family room and asked if it was because she didn’t know what to wear? She said yes. I told her I could find something. I got her a pair of black slacks that had just come back from the cleaners along with a pink top. She took them to her bedroom to put on. In the meantime, I went back to the kitchen and my computer. At 7:45, she had not appeared for us to leave. I decided not to rush her. Then at 7:55, I went back to the bedroom and found her in bed working on her iPad. I asked, “Did you decide not to go to the breakfast?” I reminded her that I had gotten clothes for her to wear. She wanted to go; so I went with her to her room where her clothes were on the bed. She got ready quickly, and we went to breakfast where she had a good time. She had just completely forgotten that we were going to the breakfast.
