Mounting Evidence That I am Going Insane

I met a friend for coffee last night, which was a lot of fun, and we stayed way too late just chatting away. As a result I spent most of today being almost deliriously tired.

When we arrived home from picking Harper up at school I repeatedly asked her to check if there was anything for me in her mailbox. I was growing frustrated that she hadn't followed through on my request when she turned to me, exasperated, and said, "Mom, I just don't know what you're talking about!"

And she had every right to be confused, since I was trying to ask her to check her backpack.

Do you think they've already got my name on a room at the asylum?

Oh my Lord, that is the funniest thing I've read all week. Poor Harper...a little preview of when she is visiting you at the old folks' home...

I had a similar experience yesterday. I was covering a chapter from Catcher in the Rye. I said "Jean Gallagher" again and again. When in fact, the character's name is "Jane Gallagher." My students corrected me. It's pretty embaressing to make that mistake in front of 25 juniors. Oh well...I chalk it up to motherhood and lack of sleep. :)

Haha. I do this kind of thing ALL THE TIME, so no worries darlin.

Yesterday on the way out of preschool I said to Cal, "Hold my car while we're in the hand." He was like, WHA? I meant hold my hand while we're in the parking lot. Not even CLOSE.
