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.
