Foggy Commute

I always start the morning off in a mental fog -- at least until I get some caffeine in my system -- but this morning's commute was really foggy! Had it been Halloween, it would have been the perfect atmosphere. Imagine the shadowy form of a spooky castle or a dragon emerging from the mist!

I am feeling that mental fog hardcore today, despite the morning caffeine infusion therapy. My middle son had to have oral surgery yesterday. Everything went really well, but he had a hard time coming out of anesthesia, and I think it scared me more than I originally thought. Other moms can probably understand, and maybe Dads, too -- you're calm during the scary times and handle the issue, then fall apart later on when everything's quiet. I kept waking up last night, having nightmares about it. I checked on him, and he was OK. He actually felt pretty normal not long after surgery, but I guess it's a Mom thing -- we worry even when we're sure everything's OK.

I'm feeling foggy today too, though I have no good reason.

Sorry about your little guy and his surgery. I'm the same way about that kind of this. When my son had his (to prepare for the braces he has now) I was fine during the whole thing until it was time to leave and come home. Then I got all woozy and almost passed out.

I hate having to drive before my morning coffee! That is a really cool pic, though. Wow.

Jeesh! I'm glad your son is okay. I have to sleep with my kids if they're sick, otherwise I don't sleep at all because I lay in my bed and worry all night. Ah, the life of a mom.

Funny, before visiting your site this evening, I just commented regarding Photographer Rick Lee's pics of I-79 at dawn. Noticed his post was a few weeks ago. Hummmm? Perhaps this inspired Rebecca to try her hand at 60+ miles per hour photography. Be careful now.

Hahaha! Busted! Yes, it did inspire me. That's how you learn... you see something, say "Wow, how'd they do that?" and try to replicate the effect.

Luckily, my camera has a timer, so I was able to set the timer and place it while I was stopped, and then just drive and check it out when I could stop.
