Brain Afire

My brain is restless. It doesn't seem to matter what I'm doing, there are 2,000 things flying in and out of my head lately.

Matt asked me this morning as we sat at breakfast if anything was wrong. When I said no and asked why he asked, he said, "You've just been really quiet for the last week or so."

I guess I have been inside my head a lot. It isn't that there's anything particularly weighing on me, I just can't quite quiet the mind. I think about books I want to read, have read, the story I started and haven't finished, the places I want to go, the places Matt and I have plans to visit this summer, when I'll ever be prepared to be a mother, what we'll name our prospective kid, what to make for breakfast/lunch/dinner, how I'll ever hear all the music I want to, where we should live, whether I should dye my hair, what to do with my hair besides put it in a ponytail, etc.

I have been wracking my brain to figure out what to put over our bed since Matt is afraid of having anything that weighs more than 4 oz. there in the event it were to fall. I haven't come up with anything definitive, but I've been considering painting something there. Or, getting some of those vinyl sticky things for the walls.I've been considering embroidering a set of towels with some of my wicked awesome embroidery patterns. And I've been looking for a new bedspread/comforter/duvet cover for our bed. I can't stop.

I guess this kind of thing just happens every now and again. I know for the better part of last year, most of my mind and my time was taken with Matt and me finding each other again and then all that went with it, so I guess now I'm kind of catching up. It's fun, but a little much.

Bleh, I hear you. Let's get out of our heads already. Isn't there a song with that lyric?

"If we could only get out of our heads, out of our heads
And into our hearts"...

I want to say it's a Sheryl Crow song... And don't ask me how I know that.

I don't recognize the lyric, but it is a good idea. I never thought I'd wish for an empty head ^__^.
