Have you ever had one of those weeks when at any given time, you have no idea what day it is, what time it is or what or where you are supposed to be? This is happening to me right now.
And to be honest, it is freaking me out a bit.
Last night around 4:30 AM I woke up in my son's bed.
Now this in and of itself is not strange. He has been having nightmares and more than a few nights a week either Natural Urban Dad or I end up sleeping with him.
What is strange is that I have absolutely ZERO recollection of him coming to my room and waking me up and then walking down the hall to his room and getting back into bed with him.
Try as I might to remember, any memory of this late night musical beds escapade does not seem to have been stored anywhere in my brain.
And just this very minute (or five minutes ago), I realized that I missed my favourite #BlogNow Twitter chat. Now, you'd think this wouldn't be a big deal, EXCEPT, that just two hours ago, while on Facebook, I clicked "attending" on the event for the chat that said that it was happening on NOVEMBER 13th.
Not until I was scrolling through my Twitter stream and saw all the #blognow hashtags did it actually occur to me that TODAY is in fact November 13th.
And it's not just today. If I didn't have a sister-wife/bestie with whom I spend a good 50% of my week with and who thankfully knows my schedule, I would have totally missed an appointment with my contractor today and forgotten that I was watching her kids this week too!
To make matters somewhat worse, and me somewhat more pathetic, ALL OF THIS (at least the appointment stuff) is in my calendar on all of my electronic devices. Laptop, phone, iPad... EVERYWHERE!
I don't know what the full criteria is for this, but let's just say that I think it is kind of official...
I have started to lose my ever-loving mind!!
There has got to be an app for this right?
Seriously, if you have or know of an App that helps you keep track of your life, or keep you on track in your life, please share it with me. I don't know if it will help with the crazy sleep walking musical beds thing, but at least I won't miss appointments and won't have to rely on my human scheduler who, by the way, has three kids of her own, anymore!
Or maybe I just have to start going to bed earlier....
Who knows whose bed I'll end up in tonight.
That doesn't sound good.
I give up!
Off to find my brain...
I'm knitting with only one needle Unraveling fast it's true I'm driving only three wheels these days But my dear, how about you? I'm going slightly mad I'm going slightly mad It finally happened It finally happened - oh yes It finally happened - I'm slightly mad Just very slightly mad! And there you have it!
I am going slightly mad.
