I'm losing it

Monday, December 03, 2012

And not weight, either!

I have no idea where my mind is.

#1: I lost a bra. Yes, we walked the Tulsa half marathon and I had my brand-new sports bra, but when I got home I couldn't find it. I mean NOWHERE! I called the hotel and asked for the lost and found. My sports bra is an eye-popping orange (sorry for TMI) and it wouldn't be difficult to spot. But nope, it wasn't in the lost and found. I'm flummoxed. My husband raised an eyebrow and wants to know who the man is who has his "trophy bra". ((eyeroll)) I'm not happy -- it's a $50 sports bra!

#2: I signed up for the same half marathon -- TWICE! What the heck happened? I still have no idea. All I know is I checked the website and saw our names TWICE! I emailed the race director who researched it and yup, I signed up (and paid) TWICE. Yikes.

#3: LASTLY. I almost ruined my wedding rings! I dropped my rings into (what I thought) was gold cleaner, but it turned out to be SILVER cleaner!! I didn't remember them for a few days (OK, a week) and when I finally retrieved them they were dull, pitted, and looked horrible. I took them to my favorite jeweler who did something to clean them and they are better but not great. He said it may take several treatments. Thank God it didn't affect the diamond.

    Seems like you got overwhelmed. Things must get better for you.

    My Mom found a pair of underwear one time - falling out the bottom of her jeans. Good thing it happened at home, and not when we were out shopping! :) Happens to the best of us, but I hope things get less muddled soon!

    I don't know where your mind is, but I can generally find mine in the gutter....

I was going to comment on the bright orange sports bra, but your husband did it for me!

    Are you stressed? Doesn't have to be big stress it is the minor ones that can add up and break the camels back. Perhaps you can try a bit of the short relaxation and breathing exercise.(link below) I use this while waiting for appointments.
My hubby thinks the meditation is working for me as I am calmer.

    There's no question you're getting a few signals to slow down -- but isn't that the hardest thing to do when you're fired up and willing to meet life's challenges?

  I just blame my cotton wool mind on hormones! and then at least I can believe that it will improve when hormonal fluxes stop. Good luck....

    I blame my days like that on pregnancy brain. Somehow I suspect that won't work for you, lol.

My guess is that you're too busy multi tasking. That's what us girls do !
Too bad about the bra, I guess you'll just have to do your run holding one in each hand. LOL !!!!
