It is HOT, my office is a MESS and I am a HOT MESS!


You may have remembered me bragging about how cool and nice it was here in So Cal a few months back, well Karma is a B$@%#!  Today in Mission Viejo (South Orange County) we will have a record high of 97 degrees on Oct 1!  Fall?  Really?  Where?  I have always said the October can be one of our warmest months, but this is a bit ridiculous.  So while you are sipping your pumpkin lattes and enjoying the changing fall leaves, I am still running inside and sweating my butt off.


I have moved my laptop to the living room because my office is such a mess, it isn’t even a suitable work environment.  Now, that is just sad.  It is full of product samples, papers that are waiting to be shredded and mail.  I am actually too embarrassed to take a photo and show you how messy.


I am just one hot mess these days.  It is a more polite way of saying that I am suffering from a sever case of head-up-a$$ syndrome.  I am forgetting words, it is almost impossible to have a long conversation with out a ummm, I can’t keep my mind on one task to save my life.  If I am swimming more that 100 yds, I need to use pennies to keep track.  Saturday I found myself cycling in the middle of traffic!  I crossed over too early before there was a wide enough median and when I realized that cars were wizing by me, I snapped to and realized where I was.  Now this is NOT safe!

My loving husband says that it is stress induced and I am not getting stupider (yes, stupider).  But I have to admit that I am a little worried about my Hot Mess state.  I am having a hard time turning off my mind and for the first time in a very long time I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn’t fall back asleep.  I usually have NO problem sleeping, so I know that something is up.

Usually I deal with stress by going for a bike ride, but obviously I like to play in traffic, so that might not be the best idea.  I am also a stress eater, so I am trying to curb that with tracking my meals.

How do you deal with stress?  Do ever find that you have Head-Up-A$$ syndrome?  Please tell me I am not alone!


On a completely different note, 2013 TEAM TOUGH CHIK registration is now open!  JOIN NOW!!!

    I’m right there will you right now! I haven’t slept in 5 days and I find myself making really stupid little mistakes. I also can’t seem to get off my butt and clean my house. This morning I actually made the comment to my husband that it looks like a hurricane came through. If you find the answer on how to deal with this, I’d love to hear it. I, unfortunately, will be spending my 3 days off this week cleaning the heck out of my place…hopefully…

    I hear you. I like to get a massage or get away just for a few hours. Water/ocean/lake is always calming me down. Hang in there, it will get better1
