I have been on the Internet non stop for the last few days. My retinas are becoming detached and my eyes are burning from reading so much.
So tonight when the dog barfed on the bed and I realized that it was time to wake up and smell the, well.....barf, I went into the kitchen and realized just how out of it I have been.
I mean, I haven't been neglecting things like the kids or other important stuff, but I can tell that my mind was elsewhere when doing certain things.
Like the salt for instance.
I started making Mac and Cheese, and realized I had put the salt in the cupboard upside down with the little twisty top open. I lifted it to find a nice salt pile awaiting me.
Then there was the whole diaper thing. Apparently I put Rhett's wet diaper in the dirty clothes hamper rather than the diaper pail. (In all defense it was a cloth diaper, not a disposable so I was thinking in the right general area.)
The potty trained thing? Well, we had a major setback with that after my mom watched Rhett for a day. She got upset at him because he stood up from the potty and pooped on the floor, so now he is afraid to use the potty.
So after all of this, I started to wonder about random things.
Like am I the only one to pick up a washcloth thats hanging off of the tap from the sink and wipe down counters or the kitchen table only to smell your hands afterwards and it smells like mildew?
Does anyone else forget that last load of laundry for the week and leave it in the washer for a few days, and every time you walk past the laundry room think, what the H-E-double-hockey-sticks is that smell?!?!
What about forgetting to hang up towels in the bathroom after you have taken them down and put them in the laundry. Are you often found running buck a** naked through the house to the laundry room where the towels are stored just to get a clean towel?
What about drinking milk from the carton? Do you ever smell it and take a swig before pouring it in your kids glass "just to make sure it's safe to drink?"
Have you ever looked at your kids sitting in the middle of the floor watching TV with a box of Cheez Its and think, "Eh, they have been eating all day. That will do for dinner."
Also, can I count swimming as their bath for the day?
I know. Eww huh?
I'm just keepin it real folks. Keepin it real.
Oh, and for the record? I am totally back in my blogging mood and coming out of this funk.
Oh how good it feels.
