The Mr. will miss our 12th wedding anniversary because he is exactly where he was a year ago when he missed our 11th anniversary. [ obviously, no, i didn't come with.]i am constantly being challenged with the concept of the time change. it's fun to share with The Bean, too. we get a kick out of knowing that we wake up when he goes to sleep.
However, time really does seem warped to know that he sent me an anniversary card from the airport when he left. it came to me as he landed.
it makes sense since his travel day was pretty much 24hrs, but when you put it that way, it just felt pretty surreal.
this morning, The Bean asked me if we ever went to Callaway Gardens. I told her we went when she was a baby. so after breakfast, i pulled up her blog & showed her a few of the pix I had posted. which led to a couple of other posts. which led to me just randomizing my blog... she was pretty captivated and she captivated me by reading my words back to me.
that's surreal enough- but another great thing- she gets my humor!
i have been having lots of deep dreams again, lately. this is nothing new to me. whether it is brought about because of (yet another) medication i really can't tell. what i do know is these are surreal, yes, but not as evil or dark or scary as some of mine can be (medicated or not)
i am currently typing this while watching the Ohio State, Virginia Tech game. surreal that i care a damn about football that's not even Clemson. surreal that VT is up by 2 TD's after OSU missed not one but 2 field goal attempts. the fact that I even know that is surreal is surreal in itself.
unfortunately there is some surreal shit going on in my family that is not at all what would be expected (even from my crazy family). it's life-changing. and not the good kind.
The Bean has had more bouts of odd coincidences. (The Mr. calls them coincidences. i'm not sure how to explain them).
she pretended some squirrels were named Coleman and Lillianna. Two names that I know in my life; neither of which are amazingly important- but those are not names we know of in her little 6 year old world. Neither one of them are particularly common. And who names squirrels anyway??
Also surreal? she said to me that 90 is old and she doesn't want to be old. She only wants to be 40. anyone who knows me knows that is amazing. and what 6 year old thinks like that. At breakfast. when we were not talking about birthdays or ages or old or anything that could have led her to this statement.
and lastly? she spoke in such a way that I seriously had to consider if something is ESP if your own mind is blank. I will be posting that story on her blog next.....
