off-key and off-balance

Did you ever have one of those days when you feel like you shouldn’t have access to car keys or the checkbook? I feel like I am moments away from doing something regrettable. I’m not talking about having an affair or anything like that. I just mean that I feel like I’m seeing myself from the outside, and that my judgment right now just isn’t what you’d call… good. I should just stay where I am and not make any big decisions. Or any decisions at all for that matter. Whether, yes, it is okay to turn left right now, or I’ll have a burrito for lunch, everything just seems a little… off. And then I tell myself that I’m being too hard on myself. And a few minutes later I’m really beginning to question my sanity.

Maybe I just need a day off. And a hammock.


I dreamed about my (bio) dad last night. He was coming to visit and I was terrified. When his car pulled into the driveway, I suddenly felt very exposed and very, very fat. I woke up before we exchanged any words.

I woke up a little bothered by the dream, but then quickly became very relieved that it wasn't real. I was very happy that I didn't have to actually see him. There may have even been some skipping and humming. I can only guess that I dreamed about him because his birthday is coming up (a week from today) and subconsiously I was aware of that. I'm not even sure how old he will be... maybe 66. I wonder how long he will be alive. I wonder whether I will feel anything other than relieved when he is gone.

Oh girl. I can relate to every bit of this. Take a day off. Do it.

I can only relate because I have Bio parents out there...somewhere and have lots of wishing/not wishing for things associated with them. Mostly meeting them. Which I never will. I don't think. And now I don't think I want to. Or do I?

I will go buy something on Etsy now to make us both feel better :o)

I think you DO need a day for you. I have days like this, too.

Your bio dad missed out by not knowing you.
