I NEED A BREAK




Hold the pickle. Hold the lettuce. Hold the phone. Stop the presses. Stop the insanity!

I think I may have just a bit too much on my plate. A little more than I can chew……….if you will. It all became crystal clear a few minutes ago.

People react differently to stress. My Harley Stud gets cranky and yells at everyone. Me………? I drop my basket. Not all at once but one egg at a time. I forget to do important things. I do things and then forget that I did them. I become distracted to the point that I can’t complete a coherent sentence. People begin to question my sanity. Let me give you an example.

I was talking with Daugher #2 about which one of us would pick up her prescription from the pharmacy when I realized that I dropped off a prescription for myself last week but never returned to pick it up. Or did I? Uh Oh! Imagine my embarrassment when I made the call. It went like this:

Me: Hi, this is Smart Mouth Broad. I dropped off a prescription last week but I don’t think I picked it up.

Pharmacist: Let me check………………………………….Yes, we filled that on May 14th.

Me: Did I pick it up?

Ph: *pauses as she considers if perhaps I’ve been taking a little too much medication* Well, let me see…………………………………….No, it’s still here.

I need a break. You may not see me around for awhile. Or maybe you will. This blog just might be the one thing that’s helping me to keep it all together except that I’m not keeping it together. If you don’t see me here much or at your place, please don’t take it personally. I still love you!

Hugs,

SMB

Linda said...

Thank goodness! I'm not the only one! I had to run to the corner store not 2 miles down the road. Got there & sat in parking lot cuz I couln't rembember why the hell I was there!

Fragrant Liar said...

I hear ya. I am stressing about a zit and a coffee stain, just when I'm about to meet the man of my dreams at a mixer. Well, it could happen. But it won't because now I'm not going . . . yes, I totally get you!

Michel said...

was it adderall you were supposed to pick up?? Can I get some????

Take a break and come back when you're ready. HUGS!

Jan said...

I'm that way naturally, but I do understand. Or I try to.

Take a break, dear - we'll all still be here when you get back. I'm not real sure how encouraging that is, but it's true.

I was thinking just this morning that I've got to stop spending so much time blogging because I need to do some things like paint something new for the shop, clean the house, go out begging for the preservation society, clean the house, visit my out of state family, clean the house, go see the chiroprator, clean the house...

Have some hugs from me too and take your time. You've earned it!

thyme said...

I was wondering how you managed to always be so brilliant and funny, and so frequently too, and starting to feel quite inferior! Don't leave alltogether, I would really miss you. But if this break just means you slow down a bit then maybe I would have a chance of keeping up...

A Cheap Chick said...

Reading your post made me feel normal and then I read the comments and really felt normal! Take that break, We'll be right here.....

Mrs. K said...

i get like this too...then i start writing everything into my crackberry- so my calendar is booked on an hourly basis but at least i no longer forget my stuff...i hate it when that happens.

namaste said...

Pastor Sharon said...

Wow. . . so it is natural to feel all discombobulated (spelling?) sometimes. . . Take a break, break an egg, go see a movie, forget the drugs at the pharmacy. . . .no wait!!! I take that back! Go get those and enjoy coming back to earth where the deer and the antelope play.
Take care of you!

You'll be fine. No worries about taking a break. We will miss you, of course. Don't be so hard on yourself, dear.

I'm tired because I'm overworked
The population of this country is 237 million.
104 million are retired.
That leaves 133 million to do the work.
There are 85 million in school,
which leaves 48 million to do the work.
Of this there are 29 million employed
by the federal government,
leaving 19 million to do the work.
2.8 million are in the Armed Forces,
which leaves 16.2 million to do the work.
Take from the total the 14,800,000 people
who work for State and City Governments
and that leaves 1.4 million to do the work.At any given time there are 188,000 people in hospitals, leaving 1,212,000 to do the work.Now, there are 1,211,998 people in prisons.That leaves just two people to do the work.
You and me!
And you are sitting at your computer
reading jokes...

Hey, if you need a break and want to ESCAPE, I have a comfy guest room :).
We shouldn't feel guilty to take a break away from blogging, go, rest, get a massage, whatever! Come back when you're ready :). we'll be here.

Sweet cakes, I have never doubted your love for a moment! Not for one moment. I mean look at me..doing stuff I don't even know how to do and am not especially good at it...and no one has the nerve to tell me because they don't want me to cry and stomp my feet! I wouldn't really stomp my feet..but I probably would cry...
So..did you pick up your medicine?
I love you back!
Mona

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

P.S. It was medicine, wasn't it?

Debbie said...

I so understand! I have been the same way lately.

Tricia said...

Me tooooooo!!!

Wishing you some R&R.

Reader Wil said...

Ah you are such a wonderful person! You turn every crisis into a situation that is funny. Like the conversation you had with the pharmacist! Take a break and relax. It's all going to be all right. You can do it...

Know how that feels. Hang in there.
