I’m not sure if it’s because I’m now a mom, or if I’m just becoming crazier the older I get….but I basically feel like I’m losing my mind just about all of the time. Anyone else feel that way, or is it just me? I can go from having it all together to a hot mess in 10 seconds flat. What gives?!?
So far this week I…..
….closed my car door on my middle finger. And all I have to prove for it is this truck band-aid (and a swollen and bruised finger). I have no idea how I managed to do it (except that I had like a billion things going on in my head at the time and was distracted) but oh my word it hurts like a…..like imagine how closing a car door on your finger would feel….it hurts like that much. And thankfully it isn’t broken…but it might as well be. It has rendered my right hand almost completely useless. I spent about 20 minutes crying in pain on my kitchen floor after it happened…all the while being comforted by a little boy saying “okay mama” and giving me hugs. Totally the best medicine around if you ask me. Also, did you know it is a proven scientific fact that redheads have a lower-than-normal tolerance for pain? So it’s not just me being a baby, it’s my genetics.
…because of said busted finger, I also somehow managed to leave my iphone on top of my car and drive away. When I realized it was gone I used the “find my iphone” app and learned it was on the FREEWAY. So I got back on the freeway and dove to the approximate location, and miracle of miracles spotted it on the side of the FREEWAY….in the rain. My phone broke out of my case and the edges were scratched but it still works perfectly! It’s a losing-your-mind miracle!
….wrote “happy birthday” on a father’s day card. Oops?
….dealt with this all day because I didn’t have the energy to clean it up.
…let this boy play in our car (his favorite game lately) and watched in horror as he figured out how to put the key in the ignition and turn the car on. OH MY WORD….I’m sure he’s already plotting how to sneak out of the house and drive away…and he’s not even 2 yet.
Anyone else losing their mind? Tell me it’s not just me!
