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!
The thought came up a few times at work and I just tried to put it out of my head telling myself it wasn't necessary to figure this out. It was no big deal. But that's how I work. Someone will tell me this whole elaborate story and I'll pick out this one minor detail that really has nothing to do with the outcome but doesn't make sense and stew about it.
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.
