When the mind wanders

Author: Jax Cassidy // Category:
Lately I've noticed my mind drifting away as I'm in mid-thought, mid-sentence. Sometimes it's when my friends and hubby are speaking, or I'm just sitting in front of the computer in my home office and completely zone out...something takes over me and everything is out of focus. I float away into a cloud of nothingness. It's not even that my mind wanders to unchartered territory... it's just missing. I think of nothing, feel nothing, see nothing. It's been happening a lot lately. Rather bizarre if you ask me. I wonder if it's ADD? Perhaps. Or maybe it's a psychological withdrawal. Hummmmm... I know I need a vacation now.

So I've been behind on several things: book reviews, web updates, and housework. Thank goodness my hubby is a neat freak and takes care of majority of the chores, but I feel guilty and I want to help him out. I just end up working so late that I never have enough time. Is it possible to freeze time? I swear one day easily turns into a month and everything becomes a complete blur. No one ever told me after I hit 21 the days would fly by at warp speed. If I had known I'd refused to grow old.

It's only Monday and I am mentally counting down the days until Friday. It's a routine for me now. Anyways, the other night I was IM-ing a friend of mine and I had this great big epiphany. I'm such a workaholic I don't really stop to have fun. Sure, I do fun things once in a while, but for the most part I'm always working. As does my friend. I'm telling him to go out and enjoy life and I'm in the same shoes he's in. What an eye-opener. Did it change me much.. just a tad bit. Not enough to make me quit working, just enough to stop and think a little.

Oh well, time to go back to work... it's an endless cycle.

Jax - I hope it's nothing more serious than a definite need for vacation! I found that if I thought time flew after 21, it became a supersonic jet after 30. I shudder to think what 40 might have in store for me. *g*

Jax, I hope you're feeling better. Sometimes when I get brain fried I feel like that. I think Lynn has a good idea about the vac time!

The haze is stress. You look up and realize a week has gone by-then Wow! It seemed like it was just July when it's December.

You need decompression. Hang in there Queen Diva.
