So, o.k. I have to apologize to anyone I may have accidentally spooked by a post a I ACCIDENTALLY published yesterday.
Here is what happened:
Way back in March when The CBC ran THAT story (you know the one I mean) I wrote this post.
However, I had written an entirely different post right after seeing the story and then thought better of it and kept it in my drafts folder. I decided I didn't have anything to defend..I still stand by that.
Yesterday, while I was writing my post about L.A. I went into my drafts folder and thought to myself "Self, you should really clean out these posts you wrote (there were a few) and didn't publish lest you accidentally publish one of them."
So, I set about deleting posts! Or at least I thought I had deleted them all...about 3 minutes later I got an email from someone asking if every thing was o.k. Was there another story? Was I o.k.?
"Oh nooooo!" I groaned and phoned said friend to ask what she was referring to although I had a pretty good idea what it was.....and yup...I had done what I had set out NOT to do. I had posted the "My Heart Hurts" post.
I got a couple of other emails and talked to few friends who said they all read the post...man you guys read stuff fast :)...and were worried.
Now I could say that I was tired because it was Monday or I was still adjusting to life after holidays...but really what it comes down to is this....
I HAVE A MUSHY BRAIN FROM WAITING!!
I really do! I have been extremely absentminded the last few weeks...oh o.k.....months!
I send emails to people telling them to read a link I found interesting and forget to include the link.
I freak out thinking I have lost my sunglasses only to find out they are...you guessed it...on top of my head.
I sit in our weekly team meetings and daydream about the when "the call" will come and then pipe up and say something like "we need to discuss landscaping for this project" only to be told they had been discussing said topic for the past 10 minutes and where was I.
I have almost cut my finger off cooking supper because I am in my head instead of in reality!
Last week I was looking for something in my purse...handed Yvan my wallet and asked him to hold it for me...than immediately started to panic because I couldn't find the wallet and what were we going to do if I had lost it! Yvan looked at me like...well....like I was losing my mind.
I find that I used to have a lot of marbles...I considered myself to be fairly intelligent (no Albert Einstein mind you) but lately I seem to be down to one marble and I am perilously close to losing that precious marble.
There is only one cure for what ails me and I can't even think about it until the phone actually rings!
So, on behalf of my mushy brain...I apologize if I got anyone worried about MORE media coverage...there is none...that story has fizzled like the soggy firecracker it was. I have deleted the aforementioned post....I think..I don't remember..sigh!
I guess I better start eating more brain food!
