Five minutes on when:
I've been feeling out of sync lately.
I'm tired when everyone else wants to do something, but I'm wide awake when everyone else is sleeping.
I'm broke when it's time to pay the bills, and then money comes in when there is nothing due immediately.
I'm hungry when it's not mealtime and when I sit down to dinner I don't feel like eating.
I feel like I'm just on a different page from everyone else around me.
Do you every feel that way? Like you're just a step behind the people you're interacting with?
It's like trying to dance a waltz when your partner is doing the jive.
It's like making a five course dinner and realizing that it's breakfast time.
It's like renting a video when everyone wants to play board games.
I wrote earlier in the week about wanting an owner's manual for my kids, but the reality is that I'm out of sync with everyone right now: my kids, my husband, my friends, my job.
I feel like the square peg that's supposed to go in a round hole.
And I told someone that's just how February is for me. Somehow the whole month just seems off. And it takes for ever. The days go so slowly and time doesn't seem to pass for hours at a time.
I'm going to call it The Februarys and just be thankful when March gets here.
