Now I know what people mean when they say “Mommy brain”! Oy vey! Our wedding is in less than three weeks and I think I can claim an official DOA on my brain. I joke, but I think all the stresses we went through last month claimed any brain cells I had left. I’ve made several mistakes recently that are unlike me; and what gets me is that I’m not overloading myself with tasks. We’re done with mostly everything, we just have to pay off the final balance for the venue which is a slight stress.
I was driving to work this morning and came thisclose to blowing a red light. I wasn’t goofing off or even listening to the radio. I don’t know what happened, but I’m embarassed that I let my mind drift somehow. I wouldn’t be able to live with myself if I caused someone else harm in this way. I was hit by a drunk driver during my senior year of High School, and have been in 2 accidents as a passenger in someone elses vehicle. It’s very unlike me to do something that bizarre and dangerous in traffic, I feel that driving is an incredibly important task and responsibility that people take way too lightly.
Anyone else experiencing crunch-time oddness? (I hope it’s not just me!)

I have been SUPER forgetful lately, and I’m hoping it’s just wedding stress. Being legally married has helped some of my stress, but there’s still a lot more to deal with and my vocabulary is only at like 75% capacity and I keep forgetting words or saying the wrong one. I feel insane.

Yeah…I keep spacing out and can’t seem to get what I need accomplished. The ability to complete a thought has totally left the building!

Yes, yes, yes! I have been officially stupid for about a month now. I keep mispelling words, losing & forgetting things, I feel like a crazy old lady! Stress is an unpredictable beast. Best of luck to you all!
