Broken: It’s not all it has cracked up to be.

I have my new coffee maker! I am so relieved to get back to my regularly scheduled life! I am so relieved that tomorrow is Friday! I was so sad to toss my old, faithful coffee maker, of less than one year. I am so… losing my mind.

I had to stop at the grocery store today to get a special request for the wife. She hasn’t been feeling well and wanted mashed potatoes. I had chicken curry in the crockpot, but okay.

Well, as I’ve mentioned before, I have ADHD so…

At the store doorway, they had beautiful flowers. I was so excited to see such bright colors in fall flowers, that I picked up two big pots of them. I did the rest of my shopping, grabbing a coffee maker on the way, because for once, I was in no mood to go to Bed, Bath, and Beyond, then I headed to the checkout. The clerk was looking at the pots and told me that one of the flowers was broken. She said I could replace this pot of flowers with another one. One that didn’t have a broken flower in it. I was really offended for my poor little broken flower, in a pot of many flowers. First of all, that she would notice the broken flower over all of the others, and not in a positive way. Second, that she would suggest abandoning the whole pot of flowers due to the one broken flower. I looked at her and said “I will not abandon this flower. It may be broken, but many others will grow!” Ha! Just kidding… I thanked her, but I did not abandon my poor broken flower in the pot of many.

SO yes, I think I am losing my mind, and I cannot blame all of this extra, crazy emotion on my midlife crisis. Is “tired” a blogging category? If it is, I’m just going to start blogging under “tired.”

Ah, “So are the days of our lives.”
