Sometimes the most major of news won't phase me a bit. But some minor detail will drive me crazy for hours. I'll latch on to some unimportant detail and won't let go.
For example yesterday morning when I got up. I walked out into the kitchen and noticed my cell phone in an odd place on the kitchen counter. For the life of me I could not remember leaving it there the night before. I have my usual spot on the dining room table with my keys, purse and sunglasses where I normally leave it at night. Once in a while I'll take it into the bedroom if my hubby is working late or one of the kids is at a sleepover.
Most people would just shrug it off and grab their phone. Me? I wracked my brain for hours trying to figure out how it got there! I asked my hubby if he had used it after I went to bed......he told me it was the gremlins in the house. He also looked at me funny because he knows me and knows I was bothered by this unimportant tidbit.
I searched the recent call list and texts to see if one of the kids used it......though they were both in bed before I went to bed and I distinctly remember having the phone next to me at the computer until I got up to head to bed. But from there I can't retrace my steps and it bugged the crap out of me!
What the hell is wrong with me?? LOL
Ok. Another thing to stew about. They changed page here where you create your blog post. Where did the spell check go?? If you see any spelling errors in this post, now you know why.

Today's Table Topic's Tuesday on Shannon's blog is:
What is the best way to spend a rainy day?
I usually don't mind a rainy day, unless it gets out of hand and rains for a week straight! I can also do without any lightning and thunder!
My daughter will tell you the best thing to do on a rainy day is go out and look for worms. I can live without that too. But I don't mind watching it rain. Especially if it's a slow, calm rain. It can be relaxing to sit out on the porch on a warm night and watch and listen to the sounds of the rain.
Otherwise, I just like to sleep in on a rainy day. Lounge on the couch reading a book or watching TV. Maybe play a game with the kids or do a puzzle. I always seem to associate doing puzzles with rainy, dreary weather. I remember doing puzzles with my mom and brother on dreary days when we first moved to Wisconsin as a preteen and we didn't know anyone yet.
What about you? What do you like to do on a rainy day?

But this wasn't just a couple of drops. She kept saying it was bleeding but I didn't see anything. Then it dripped on her shirt, she started grabbing tissues like crazy. My mind went blank. How do you stop a nose bleed? I know I'll google it!
By this time I was starting to feel my stomach churn a little. So I looked it up, tried to make sure she was Ok, got her some extra tissues and a cold cloth and took a couple breaks of my own to the other bathroom because I felt like I was going to be sick.
How can I take care of my child if I'm gonna get sick? I remember last year when she went to have her wisdom teeth out. They were prepping her for surgery, trying to hook up an IV. They couldn't get it in on the first try, she looked down at it, went limp and passed out for a few seconds. I freaked! At first I jumped to make sure she was OK, but it a matter of seconds I was light headed and sick to my stomach ready to pass out. I lasted long enough to make sure she was coherent but then I had to sit down and the nurse had to bring me some juice! They could have easily been having to call in backup to pick me up off the floor.
This all scares me to think that if my child was in more serious trouble I couldn't stomach the problem and help her or at least call for help. In fact I'm feeling a bit queasy right now just thinking about it all again.

I cry easily, at the drop of a hat and sometimes at the dumbest things. I've always been very emotional like that. It scares my husband! So it surprised me when I read this topic that something didn't jump out at me as the last thing I cried about. I realized it's probably been a good couple weeks since I've cried. That is amazing for me! LOL
I cried because I had a Sunday off which is usually the only day our family has to spend together and my husband let the kids start eating breakfast before I came out of the bedroom. I was upset because we weren't making and eating breakfast as a family like we usually do on those Sundays.
I cried when we went to see Dear John.
I cried, like I often do, about my job. The fact that I only work part time and don't make a whole lot of money. Even though that is what we've decided is best so I'm around for the kids. The fact that I really don't like it. It stresses me out. I know I'm lucky to have a job right now and I only work part time hours but it still sucks. Which leads to more crying about feeling guilty about it! And still more crying that I'm as far along as I'd like to be in remedying that situation with my own photography business. And it just spirals out from there!
I better end this post before I start crying right now!
