where am I?
It's weird.
The last few weeks, I have felt like I was in a washing machine and on spin cycle. Everything is just whooshing by and it's blurry and I can't make out all of the pictures or the people or events.
I feel like I am watching my life on fast forward.
I am forgetting to call people back and emails are going unanswered. I forgot Emilee had tryouts for baseball on Saturday and then had to run her down there thirty minutes after they ended and apologize, profusely, for not showing at the right time.
And I am always on time.
When did I lose that part of my brain that kept track of everything? That made sure I never missed an appointment or forgot to pay a bill?
I feel like I am doing nothing but don't have time for anything else.
And I have a theory.
Stay with me on this...
I think that little aliens are popping in and stealing me for a few hours a day when no one is looking. I haven't exactly figured out why. Except maybe they are slowly sucking out all my scheduling and organizing brain pieces. It would make sense, you see, since I am so insanely anal.
Ask anyone.
They would need those parts of my brain to organize their little purple planet and schedule their holidays. They would, of course, name a holiday after me since they stole my sanity to create their happy and organized world.
Maybe they would name the planet after me.
And if they were sucking them out (the brain pieces), it would explain why I suddenly can't seem to get on top of everything in my life. It is all slowly becoming harder for me. Not remembering birthdays, suddenly forgetting where I put the groceries, not... oh god, this one is hard for me to even say... *deep breath* not... making... lists!
This would also explain why I can't seem to get all of my work done and I feel like I don't have enough time. I mean, if they are beaming me out of my office for a few hours a day then obviously I wouldn't have enough time for all of my work once I was fully revived and back at my desk. And if they beamed me out over the weekend then that would explain why I didn't finish all of my laundry.
On the one hand, I am doing my Universal Duty by helping out the little aliens. (They deserve to have a smoothly running planet as much as the next species and they did come and find me..) But, on the other hand, if your kind insists on sucking out all of the usefulness in my brain, at least hook me up with a palm pilot or something so I don't go completely bonkers.

"I just got done reading the history lessons on your blog (yes, I've been lurking on your blog). All the respect I had for you...has increased, like, tenfold. I don't think I could have done it. To go through what you have and not only still be able to discuss it with such wit and poise, but also to raise those three gorgeous girls. You are truly an inspiration. You are honestly one of the strongest people I have ever known, either online or IRL. Thank you so much." -Stef
