Deep Thoughts by Jack Handy . . . uhhhh . . .  I mean, Kerri Bradford.

So, life has been a little odd the past week or so. Some crazy, unexpected, and creative-brain-freeze things happening.

Do I just have too much on the brain?

Is there just too much going on for me?

For a person that technically doesn’t have a job, how can this be?

Been pondering this morning.

What is up? 

What is going on in my universe? 

I don’t understand why things happen the way they do. Although, I do know that everything happens for a reason. But creative brain freeze? Awww, c’mon! lol There’s no excuse for that. Well, maybe there is an excuse. The ever-annoying computer that gets bogged down with big files. Plus, I have the monitor I stole from my kids (swapped them for my old one a couple weeks ago). My monitor was going out. Still “working,” but I needed something I could see clearly with. However, the coloring of their monitor is off.

So, needless to say, I have spent too much time during the day expressing “colorful language”, venting my frustrations into the air to no one in the house except for the cat, with fists pounding my desk. Oh, and then there’s the occasional slump on the elbows and covering my eyes, while I await the electrical parts of this curse-ed thing to move and do it’s thing so I can continue.

Where, oh where fore art thou Mac? Whilst thou be coming to mine house soon?

I tell ya, really, I am not a horoscope person. I mean, I wouldn’t even know about it if it weren’t automatically on my opening e-mail screen. Most of the time I don’t even pay attention to it. I don’t rely on it to foresee my day or anything. But when things are going weird, I like to see if they match up . . . just to test it.

Um . . . yeah . . . here’s today’s . . .

Are things getting a little bit crazy, Virgo? Too many tasks and too many people vying for your attention could have your nerves stretched as taut as violin strings. Try to get outside for a while. Treat yourself to a nice lunch or do a little shopping. Take a good long nap. Whatever seems so urgent isn’t worth sacrificing your peace of mind. Try to stay focused!
Try to stay focused. Yeah. Been trying that for a week now. lol Just may have to do the lunch thing today. And a nice nap afterward sounds divine.

We’ll see . . . 

Obviously the “focus” thing has not worked for me yet this morning because rather than jumping into work (yes, I still get up at 6 a.m. and I don’t even have to–curse it!), I’ve e-mailed my son, perused the internet and written this blog post all within the hour. 
How’s that for focusing on the tasks at hand?
I’m off to a good start . . . 
. . . can you feel the sarcasm? ;)

    When I have moments like this (and trust me Kerri, I can relate to the computer thing as I have had Countless Issues lately with mine!), I keep telling myself to "go with the flow"…doesn't always work but the nap sounds good LOL!
    take it from me – You're doing just great in my opinion and the Universe is much richer with you in it. Love, as always, from Scotland xo

    No worries, Kerri. I can say that ANY and ALL computer issues EAT all my brain cells. Takes me days to recharge…and I am waaay older than you but I remember in my mid 40's starting to experience FOGGY BRAINITIS-and the dr. told me it was a pre-hormone depletion phase…uh WHAAT-T?
    ! In more plain terms, perimenopause. She told me in about 15 years it would get better. Oh wonderful!! Well I haven't passed the 15 year mark yet so I don't know if it's better yet:)Now see don't you feel better knowing what you have to look forward to? Just enjoy the FOG:)

    Lunch and a nap sound like just what you need. Sometimes you have to just go with it. my niece eloquently described it on FB the other day as branfartitis (it made me giggle as she is a pyschologist very high up in her profession and I wondered if she uses that term with her patients :-)
    enjoy your nap ;-)

    Sorry to hear your plate overfloweth lately. Hopefully you'll have a chance to relax over the weekend and things will be better next week! At least you still have your humor and are fluent in sarcasm (which in my opinion, counts as a second language).

    This too will pass. It is okay. Creativity seems to be in your blood so don't worry. And technology, well… it is a love/hate thing. We love you!
