On The Verge of Crazy or Helplessly Charismatic?

Sometimes I wish I were different. I guess at some point we all do, don’t we? Today I’m having one of those days.

Normally I take great pride in being the creative free spirit I am. I don’t know about the rest of the world, but this creative free spirit has no sense of time, order, direction, or balance. I live in a house of chaos. Are you familiar with the saying “A place for everything and everything has a place” ? In my home we have a saying too; “Anything could be anywhere, good luck”. It doesn’t help my condition any. You see, I’m also a chronic loser. Everyday, as many times as I use my van, I loose my keys. The lists I make in my attempt to keep me semi-functional vanish into some vast invisible hole as quickly as they are made. At the end of the day I often find myself thinking “Oh, today would have been the perfect day to (insert brilliant idea here). Normally, I see all these little quirks as the pieces that add a little extra adventure to my life (sometimes a lot!) It keeps my days full of entertainment. I honestly never know what a day will hold. Part of me finds this type of scattered existence oddly comforting. My kids seem to find humor in it, they laugh every day because they can’t help not to.

Sometimes it might be nice to experience being on time and prepared for anything, but I guess that would make me someone I am not and I have to admit, I’m pretty damn good at being the free spirit that I am.

I don’t know if it’s the rain, the full moon, the missing wallet, the pants I ruined in the washing machine, the stress of impending home renovations, or the baking that I’ve put off getting done to the very second for the bake sale at work, but I can’t help wondering, was hurricane Sandy named after me?

On a more serious note, please pray for those affected by Hurricane Sandy.
