Random Thoughts from the Junk Drawer of My Mind

I awoke at 4 a.m., thanks to the stimulant effect of Sudafed (which is no doubt why it’s locked safely behind the counter at Walgreen’s), with the usual random amalgamation of thoughts swirling in my brain.  In an attempt to clear them out once and for all, I list them (in no particular order):

  1. What’s the proper etiquette when you receive a text message in error?  I got a message from an unfamiliar number at 7:00 a.m., cryptically stating…”new money.”   Should I text back – “wrong number?” 
  2. Why -oh why oh why – does something happen every time I’m planning a trip?  We’re going to LasVegas tomorrow (I know, but it’s a free trip) and first I come down with a terrible cold, then we’re supposed to have a blizzard (!) along with record cold temperatures while I’m gone.  Worry worry worry…about my mother and the dogs and….
  3. Perhaps Number 2 above is the reason I’ve beginning to feel as if traveling isn’t worth the bother (Gasp! I can’t believe I said that)  Especially having to pack a suitcase – I’m seriously  spoiled by our trips to Florida where I have everything already there and simply board the plane with laptop and purse.
  4. I made the mistake of opening my 401K statement yesterday.  Dear God…
  5. Speaking of junk drawers, I think a mouse has been in mine! 

So there you have it – now that I’ve downloaded all these disturbing things from the recesses of my psyche, perhaps I can continue on with my day.

Or maybe going back to bed would be a better plan.

  1. I seem to have a cold that just won’t let go also.

    We got snow today, and more on the way Wednesday; I’m sure it will be on your doorstep shortly, followed closely by stiff wind chills on Thursday. Be glad you’ll be in sunny LV!

    401k–just don’t look until it’s over.

  2. Maybe if we packed all of our terrible worries and thoughts together in a big trunk and buried it on the moon, they’d all go away. I’d try just about anything!!

  3. I hope you slept better after getting that off your mind! And I don’t know what it is about traveling… but it seems to always involve headaches of some kind. If not the weather, then lost tickets, or flight delays.

    I hope though, that the trip is worth it after all the hassle!

  4. I can’t believe you had the courage to check your 401K. I’ve been thinking about mine for days.

    I have the same issues with traveling. I hope you have a wonderful time.

  5. Hope you’re in Vegas, having a few drinks and some laughs! I went to Vegas once when I was very sick and I swear they put something in the water so that you can still manage to have a good time…. I caught up on a few of your posts just now, and I’m glad to see you’re a Grey’s fan too. Oh come on!!

  6. Sounds like your travel days and mine coincided. Hope you had far better air experiences, both ways!

    I loved reading this. I enjoy these memes when I get to learn bits more about lots of people (usually woman) I admire tremendously.

    (My 401K really tanked last time. Now I wonder why I opened it…!)
