Run away thoughts

Do you ever get those crazy thoughts in your head like what if I did this or What if I didn't do that? I do. Sometimes, like tonight when I'm super tired, these thoughts will just pop into my head. As I was driving home from book club I was thinking about how tired I was and wouldn't it be nice to just sleep in. But then, wait, I have to go back to work tomorrow. I can't sleep in. Then the thought popped into my brain. What if I don't set the alarm? What if I JUST don't go in? Terrible, terrible, I said to myself. I can't do that. And I can't and even more important, I wouldn't. I have 13 little kids waiting for me and I can't let them down. The problem is I've been off work or rather on summer vacation since school got out in mid June. Since I've been back from vacation I've been lazy, we all have. Eating breakfast at lunch time, not getting dressed, laying around reading and relaxing... isn't that what summer vacation is all about? However, I promised I'd teach summer school for two weeks and my lazy time is up! No regrets though, well maybe a tiny.

I was talking about those run away thoughts wasn't I? Here's another one I get.... When you see those flashing lights in your rearview mirror, what's your first thought? Mine is always the same. "I wonder if I can out run him?" Then sanity takes over again and I pull over. Not that I could out run any one in a 4runner.

My next dream car is a red convertible that goes fast. However my husband keeps saying no. I wonder why?

Know why Tim says "no" to you having a red sports car? He's been in the car with you!
