 I'm having "The brain can't keep up week." I'm still waiting to get time off I asked for weeks ago, but other folks there have better reasons to bump me back, I guess. (like medical emergencies).

 The  Brussels attack thing just has me in flash-backs of what it was like to hear about 911 n the Boston Marathon events, feeling for people's trauma without being able to do anything about it but pray.

I've been so forgetful this week. I'm always in a rush n can't go back- too. I forgot to bring my phone when leaving for the day three times this week. The charger zone is too far from the door, so I don't have a visual reminder before locking up n leaving.

The tough day was the one I forgot to take my wallet out of the old pants the night before, n didn't realize until almost at the store that I had no money, ID of any kind, or a phone to help ID myself. I had to continue onward to get to work. I cancelled the errand stop, n wrote a note for my pocket about someone to call in case of emergency, taking a long time to recall a non-cell number without the contact list you don't need to memorize anymore, because of the phone doing it for you.

 I got thru my work-week at least- Now on Day Off. Then I noticed the time swipe card in my pocket. Now I have to call the boss n explain I forgot to punch out, n took the card by accident. Yikes! You know you're working too hard when you do this stuff unconsciously...

It was the same workday a supervisor threw a box in the storage area, which fell off a shelf then hit the fire-box alarm- pull station, which went off. It's really loud, with flashing lights. The fire department comes automatically n has to check n re-set it. So we all shut off our food machines n filed outdoors to wait. At least it wasn't freezing or rainy, n still light out.

It could've been a better break, but I was the last one out n had to hold open the self-locking, outer door for access to the fire-system reset box.

It took awhile for the inspection n reset. When I had to wave everyone back in, I got silly, kept waving n I said "Thank you for evacuating,. Have a nice work-day, n Thank God you didn't go to Brussels today! Happy Flying" I felt like an airline stewardess (In the "Airplane" film). Everyone was giggling on the way back in.

Life may go on, but I'm always affected.  Perhaps I watched the show "M*A*S*H" too much in my childhood.

I broke down n got a bluish friend to keep the reddish Violet company n to cheer me up.
