Who'd a thunk

[Okay, is "who'd a thunk" a common term elsewhere? If you've never heard it, you'll think I'm completely odd.]

It has been so long since I've posted. Even longer since I've visited other blogs. Things have just become very busy and stressful.

This is a problem I've been having lately: I have trouble talking. Weird? When in the middle of a conversation, while trying to express some thoughts, I can't find the right words to use. I just end up saying... well, who knows! Whatever I say, it probably makes no sense. And it's all chopped up, b/c I make so many pauses between words. I feel so dumb. People probably think I'm dumb.

So, why is this happening? I'm not really sure. I think its partly b/c i'm overly stressed, overly tired, overly busy, and many other types of "overly"s.

I won't be typing much now. There's lots to do before Erica wakes up from her nap.

I think you need to stop drinking. Get your mind out of the gutter- I'm talking about the obscene amounts of caffeine you take in. What did you think I was talking about?

I get tongue tied sometimes too, it like my brain is going faster than I can spit it out!

ps- Was high school really that bad??

Hey! You changed your layout- I like it! I hope you did it for YOU!

I know where you are coming from. I have moments like that myself when I just seem so overwhelmed that nothing comes out of my mouth the way I intended it to.

Good luck with that and do your best to relax when possible.

I know how you feel.... I am going through similar stuff right now:-( I'm very stressed out right now and feel like my head is going to explode!

Becky, Mom, Mommy, Hey you, said...

Becky I hate to ask, but could you possibly be preggers???? I know when I was I had problems talking, thinking, walking...

Yeah, I was gonna post what Becky said...

But, being a mother can just sometimes take it outta ya too, I think! Try not to get too stressed!

toni- as I'm reading this, I'm drinking a cup of coffee. hmm... And yes, I changed the background for me. Even before my 'review,' I was changing things around. I'm not sure if I like the peach background; Hubby thinks it should be a darker orange [PS: highschool wasnt really 'terrible.' I just have absolutely no desire to go back. (for those who are completely lost on this topic, I had answered a ? on another blog that I'd never want to return to HS.)]

mama of 2- yeah, its good to hear other people know what I'm talking about. I was afraid everyone would think I'm crazy

hip mommy- I hope your stressful issues work out. From reading your blog, I'm pretty sure I know what you're talking about

Becky, mom... - NO NO NO NO NO! What a scary thought. Sometimes I wonder about that, b/c I often think my house just STINKS, and when i was pregnant i thought everything smelled bad. But, speaking of the here-and-now, I cant be pregnant b/c I'm going thru 'that time of month.'

crazy working mom- As for your first comment, see my above response. As for your second comment, very true. Being a mommy really can take a lot out of you.
