‘Bye, brain.

August 13, 2011


So, apparently I am getting stupider and stupider as the days go by. I realized that I had not sent several e-mails because instead of hitting ‘send’ I was hitting the ‘back to the rest of your e-mails’ button. The extra-dumb thing is that after I realized it and sent a couple apology e-mails, I am still doing it.

Clicking this creates a draft.

Another dumb thing? Twice in the past three days I have gotten out of my truck without stomping on the emergency brake, as it my useless habit. (Sidebar: I just spelled ‘habit’ with two r’s and spellcheck corrected me. Why isn’t it habbit? Why isn’t it rabit? Sorry. Back to the story.) The problem is that I had also had forgotten to put it in gear. It wasn’t a problem when it was just rolling a bit as I got out in a parking lot, but it was a problem when I slow-motion-rear-ended Lloyd’s car in our driveway. Oops.

I’ve felt a bit scattered lately.

    Is it time to go back to school? ugh.

    I am right there with you. I call it “high diving board syndrome”. The high diving board seems like a good idea when you are at the bottom of the ladder or when you have just jumped off--it’s when you are standing on the board ready to dive in that it causes stress. Once you dive into the school year you will be fine.:-) However, Lloyd might want to park on down the street for a while.

    Did you change email software? We’re changing over at school. I anticipate trouble.

    Oh Lauren, I feel your pain. Maybe we should have a going away party for our brains. One Saturday at noon or noon thirty (I actually said this this past week).

    Ha! I am going to try and work that into everyday conversation.
