how paranoia happens…and then it goes away

have you ever had one of those days…

Inigo Horcajuelo/Dreamstime

ran thru the yellow but almost red light…scared to get a ticket…another ticket… worried about not being a good role model…don’t want my little ones to know i may have been going a couple of miles over the speed limit…dang those cameras!  o.k… maybe it was really FIVE miles over the speed limit…  scared it will show up in my record… scared my students will know…  scared i’ll be seen as a speeder…  worried about those insurance premiums…  when’s the bill due?…

by the way, did i get a gas bill last month…this month?…  stove stopped working… wanted to bake the chicken ’cause it’s healthier…  gotta fry… oh well, chance to use up that old grease… grease clogs up the pores…  doesn’t Aunt “R” have diabetes?…  doesn’t Aunt “C” have high blood pressure?… across from the stove is the dish washer… also NOT working…  did someone put dish washing liquid in it AGAIN…  oh gosh… where’s that water bill?  did i pay it last month… where’s my planner…  i LOVE my planner… gotta log that new electric bill… where ARE those eco-friendly bulbs that showed up mysteriously on my door steps… must be from the CITY… why didn’t they pick up the trash last monday… or was it tuesday?…  maybe it was recycle bin day…  back to the chicken:  what will i do with all that grease…  did i pay the sewer bill… OH GOD…

stop!  breathe!   Breathe…stop!  o.k.,  i go back to my favorite quote.  what my Mom left me with:  “I cried because I had no shoes but I met a man who had no feet.”  It always worked then.

It just has to work now!
