Warmer Colder Cold.

Sometimes I forget what I want and what I feel. What I did or didn't do. Like maybe I'll be standing in my kitchen feeling discombobulated and I don't quite know why, my tummy kinda' slippery. Did I forget to pay the cable bill? Is there a new ding on my bumper? Did somebody say something off to me? And I run through the possibilities right there like a grocery list. When I was little we had a cat named Dumb Darryl. I don't know why except that when he entered a room he often looked as if he forgot what brought him there. Dumb Darryl Chicken Liver Whip Whap Sick Sack, like a song, and we would laugh at him there between the ferns.

I guess I forgot what brought me here. Should I post a funny photo? A story? Something slow and dense and yeah, like this? Are we out of milk? Should I post at all? Yesterday I got a traffic ticket for $380, last night Bryan and I were mean to each other. My skin is dry and I wonder if it wouldn't be better to be like our old cat Wanda who peed on the carpet.

But that's not it really. Close, but not quite.

I like this post, some days just don't make sense at all. Thank goodness we get another chance the next morning,

I ran out of gas yesterday...I forgot to fill the tank. I addressed a envelope but forgot to add the city, state and zip...then mailed it off. I have "baby brain" but I'm not prego. Hopefully one day we don't forget our pants. Shake it off and reset for tomorrow.

I mailed a payment that was already late to the gararge door repairman and forgot to put the check in the envelope.

Last week I got a ticket for $108 for going NINE miles over the posted speed limit. In the woods. By my house.

I haven't told my husband, he's gonna be pissed.

I hope today is a better day. Don't pee on the carpet because you know you would have to clean it up.

$380? Yikes! I feel slightly better about the $240 ticket I got on the way to a $200 dentist visit last week (although I still wish I had just stayed in bed)

Like everyone says in prison, "I'm innocent." I didn't do it, I mean kind of, it wasn't my fault at least. Got lost in Oakland trying to get to the zoo--how much more wholesome could it get? Zoey in the back singing along to talk radio--somehow I got onto the on-ramp to the Bay Bridge so I tried to get off on the last Oakland exit which turned out to be a Bus Only lane. $380. The cop was a dick and I cried.

I saw a little boy about 5 today with his mom, he was crying a mid to serious cry.

She said as we waited for the light "what are you crying for we walk this way to school every morning?" I turned to her and said, "I have days like that, I relate" [to her son],

sometimes it just works out that way

What a asshole cop. I'm having one of those days myself, trying to adjust to living outside the US and realizing that I just can't figure out Irish dishwashers, the TV sucks and if I go to the city one more time to find everything closed at 6 I really will breakdown. We all have these days. Tomorrow will hopefully be better.
