I'm losing control!!!!

Okay, I say that tongue in cheek. I am suffering from severe prego brain and have done some dumb stuff. I've got Freddy Mercury singing "I'm Going Slightly Mad" in my head and I think I believe it. I'm forgetful, I do stupid things, I'm clumsy, it's horrible! I just have lots on my mind I guess. Here are a few of the doozies that are on my mind.

*I worked the Dow last night and our stand was off by $1000. Idiot me forgot to empty out one cash register...Duh.

*I left my closet door open today and Austin found one of his nice Christmas presents. Gosh was he excited. Tommy comes downstairs and says, "Mom, Austin saw the Thomas present in your closet, you left it right out in the open." Followed by a very gleeful Austin squeal, "Mommy guess what!!" you can ad lib the rest.

*I send Joe to the basement with other Christmas presents hoping to avert further disaster and almost send him down with one of his. Double Duh.

*The Great Migration has begun. Joe & I moved downstairs and the boys have moved to our big room upstairs. We still have work to do but it's a start. We'll all sleep in the new rooms tonight.

*I had the craziest dream last night and I swear every aspect of my life was involved from Tommy's hockey parents, to current and former coworkers, to my new baby. I could probably fill a whole page detailing this very vivid dream. It was a baby boy and I left him home alone for 5 hours and knew I had to get back to him but I just couldn't, something kept preventing me from getting there. I was afraid he was going to die of starvation, or if he didn't die I knew that he was going to be taken away from me by child protective services. It was freaky. I even commented at the Texan last night (Joe and I had a late 11:00 dinner date) that the food would probably give me crazy dreams. No more Texan so close to midnight.

*I have to go to Detroit tomorrow for 8:30 to fight my ticket. Throw in a monster storm and I pray it doesn't take more than 3 hours to get there. The forecast is calling for 5-8 inches. I imagine the boys will have a snow day. All I know is they better not cancel my court hearing if I make it down there!

*Today at church I had no focus, I kept thinking about the Christmas program, senior luncheon, next week's all school mass. I did more people watching today than participating. Ugh!

*My Astronomy final is a week away. I fear for my current B as I seem to have an attention deficit problem lately.

*I have an OB appt. tomorrow at 3:00 and I don't remember where I put my pee pee cup. ;) Haha, just kidding I know where it's at. Remembering to pee in it tomorrow morning might be another matter though.

At least I can laugh at all this. My humor shall deliver me or maybe at worst leave me divorced. ;) Speaking of humor, a little Thanksgiving goodness. My Mom is the only person nutty enough to put food coloring in her gravy and we've had some interesting gravy colors through the years. Austin was so freaked thinking about Grandma's blue gravy from last year. I heard about it 5 times that day before we got there. He came into my room that morning and I wake up to "I don't like Grandma's blue gravy!" So along with the blue which was requested by Tommy for the Bay County Blizzard, Grandma kept some normal gravy. It is hard to eat mashed potatoes and blue gravy. Blue anything should be blueberry flavored, it's a freaky mind over matter thing. Kind of like Green eggs & ham I suppose.

Almost time for bed, hopefully with some sweet dreams.

***UPDATED*** Well I survived my trek down to Detroit. The roads weren't too bad and I got there almost two hours early so I ate solo at Bob Evans. They had a herd of us, processed us like cattle, gave us two options, 1st - write it for double parking, no points, pay $155 fine, clean driving record...or wait forever and continue to fight it. It's a sham but I got out of the points which is what I guess I wanted. I came home and slept for almost 3 hours. I dreamed I missed my appt. and was just fuming at Joe for falling asleep. Too funny.

So funny! I love the stories!!!

I've had the same Christmas present problem with Emily, I've been trying to figure out if I should tell her or not because she has also found SEVERAL Christmas present before I've put them away. I'll wait to see what happens on the 25th.

Sometimes it feels like a losing battle trying to keep control of my life with everything going in opposites directions, too:)

Glad you do have a great sense of humor, which will keep you going.

Good luck tomorrow at your appointment! Drive safe!

We put a lock and key on a closset door, and I hide the key, even from Adam during this time of year! Drew being 12 has yet to ask about Santa, but I'm thinking he knows, but is afraid to ask! I've never been caught though, so I hope I can get thru another year with no one finding presents! they simply think I am hiding their presents from Adam and I. Santa's wrapping paper is even in there!

Your other stories crack me gravy is just gross. Kind of like when they made colored ketchup (i remember purple) ugh!

Keep the stories coming and good luck with your class!

Julie said...

Good grief!! No more late night dinners for you!!
Thank goodness for your sense of humor. Sounds like quite the day.
May your travels tomorrow (if you go) be safe and successful.

Kiera Beth said...

Wow! That is a lot going on. I am glad that you can keep your sense of humor. Good luck on your final! The end is in sight! How many more classes do you need to take to get your masters? (I am assuming that is what you are going to school for)

Dawn said...

Thanks for the love girls! Had trouble sleeping so I'm up even earlier than planned. Must get moving though, the radar looks horrible!

Will give you all persies tonight!

Dawn said...

Thank you all! I survived!

Amy - Thanks for the phone call. I'm glad that I'm not the only one who is spinning at times. Sorry Emily is finding her presents, don't smarty kids!

Sherri - We have a locked cabinet downstairs, I should have just went straight there but I didn't. Darts to me. Tommy has been asking a lot about SC, I have a feeling this is our last year with him. :( And yeah, purple ketchup..bleh. I remember the Crystal Pepsi craze, that didn't seem right either. You're think you're drinking 7-Up and when it doesn't taste like it something's wrong.

Julie - I know my crazy dreams! No proper rest for me. See you in the am.

Kiera Beth- No masters for me. Just getting a science minor so I can be highly qualified to teach science. This is my last science class and I will be a Professional teacher as opposed to my current Provisional status. Go me!

Boy Dawn I'm behind in reading Blogs.

Fun about him finding the gift. Did you give it to him or are you making him wait?
