scatterbrained ...

Most days, I am rather verbose. I could wax poetic about the most mundane topic. Today is not that day. Right now, I can barely formulate a complete thought. I'm a total scatterbrain. And maybe a little bit stressed out. But whatever. It's just where I am at today. In the last hour, all of these things have popped into my brain ...
  • Recent events have led me to see the abundance of crap in my home. Also, I'm noticing how rarely I dust, how badly everything needs to be painted and how disorganized my children are.
  • Our master shower is leaking again. It's the fourth time in three years. We just found out the entire thing needs to be replaced.
  • There has been a last minute hiccup in our Memorial Day travel plans. I'm cautiously optimistic that the disruption will be worth it.
  • The girls don't know about the hiccup in our plans. They are completely going to freak.
  • I'm considering having the girls run a 5K this weekend. They haven't trained at all.
  • The girls have been holy terrors the past few days. Dizzle and Doodle were sent to bed early last night due to their extreme disrespect of my rules. Dilly only held on my a thread.
  • I took all three girls to the dentist. Total nightmare.
  • When the girls stress me out, I want to exercise. Thus, I have become mildly obsessed with riding TigerBlood on my bike trainer. I rode 40 miles last night. Just because. Who does that?
  • I really want to eat gelato with every meal. Fortunately, I have enough stocked up in my freezer to do that. And thankfully, I train enough to be able to do that.
  • Coconut cream coffee from Disney World is freaking fabulous.
  • Just hearing the words "ruptured ear drum" makes me wince.
  • I really want to sign up for an Ironman. Following the live stream of Ironman Texas amplified that desire. J keeps telling me to calm the heck down. I know he's right. But that doesn't change how I feel.

See? Complete scatterbrain. It's gonna be a long day.

I'm leaning towards IMLP - I mean why not the hilliest! ;-)

Now you are living in my head. With this move, upcoming races, trying to recover from the last one, school coming to an end, more oral surgery scheduled, training my big girl job replacement, planning an 11th bday party - make that parties, and freaking out over the extra 7 pounds all this stress had blessed me with, it is a good thing I don't drink.
At least I know I'm not alone in crazyville.

I'm just as bad and didn't even bother to write a post today for precisely that reason. I feel like I've spent the last few days holding my house together with primer and caulk, sigh. And I still don't have a working dishwasher.

Or a working foot for that matter. Makes me wonder just how wrong it would be to put my really really old, only works in one gear Huffy bike on a trainer...

oh my gosh, i feel like every post of mine could be written like this. i am a scatterbrain, every minute of every day. it is insane. so happy to know i am not the only one. as a result though, i loved reading this post. so completely my speed. i get it. all of it. except maybe the ironman part. i'm not there yet. but i may be, one day. more likely an ultra race. i feel like everyone around me is signing up for and running ultras and i'm not there yet. i want to be, but i'm not. here's to a long life ahead so i can do all the things i dream of doing!

What is it with the kids lately? Is it the end of school/beginning of summer? My girls are loosing their privileges left and right lately!

I don't know what to say to make you feel better. Have you considered a massage?

Cory Reese said...

You forgot to add that Hostess has filed for bankruptcy.

That alone is making me question my existence.

Hope things mellow out for you!

WOO GIRL! I have so been there! And my kids are freaking COO COO right now too!!! I would call it senioritis but one is on 1st grade and one is in pre-school so maybe it's just me! LOL! I vote yes go ahead on and sign up for that Ironman, at least it may distract you...?

I know just how you feel. Just back from a trip and my head is spiiiinning. I need a good run to clear my head.
