Phantom Clutch

I have this weird feeling lately, like everything is slightly off-kilter. For example, I was driving my husband's car for about a month (all over the Southwest), and just this week we switched back. As a result, I've been changing the radio stations when I meant to set the cruise control, messing up the headlight settings, and stomping down on a clutch that just isn't there. On my own car! My grandpa used to call it "washing your windows," when you drove someone else's car and, when trying to shift or whatever, you hit the windshield wipers, the most noticeable thing, just so everyone knew how big of an idiot you were. 

I was anticipating a big post on how much fun Mike and I had on our Dateiversaryapalooza celebration, but it just didn't happen. I woke up Saturday with what I thought was food poisoning, but what turned out to be the stomach flu. At least I think it was. It was just like food poisoning, except with a fever, aches, and chills to boot. Fun! My other hint was that Mike didn't get sick, and we had the same dinner, and he ate the leftovers the next day. Needless to say, we cancelled our trip to Boulder. Luckily, it wasn't our actual Dateiversary and the B&B let us reschedule for our actual one with no penalty. I was actually a little relieved to have missed the basketball game as well since we lost by one point, and I tend to get a little stressed out about live UofA basketball, to the point of crying. For reals. 

A bunch of other little things have been like that lately. Monday, I was absolutely convinced that my 9:30 class was at 10:30 and, luckily, I double-checked at the last possible minute and still made it on time! I ordered several of my textbooks from Amazon after checking the price differential and they got sent to my old address by mistake, and dealing with getting them back was a pain. It really stressed me out to not be able to do all of the reading for class. I also still haven't sent my best friend's birthday gift yet due to being sick (and needing to get part of it in Disneyland and then drive back to Colorado), but she's the coolest so she understands (Right, Meg??).

Of course, to top it all off, we are having issues with our rental house in Phoenix. I won't go into it here, but it's pretty obnoxious. 

Anyone else just having an off week? Please share. 


  1. Oof...that sounds like a bundle of nuisances. Hope you're feeling better.

  2. I'm feeling much better, thanks!

  3. I'm sorry Dateiversaryapalooza didn't work out :( It's good that you could reschedule, though!

    Oh yeah, I'm totally the coolest so I totally understand ;) (That second part's true.)


Comment nicely and with tolerance or be deleted!
