Cabin Fever

When the clock hits quitting time I scramble to get out of my desk - quickly put on a little make up and open the door to bring in what little sunshine is left. This is also the time I get a little crazy.
You see - I'm a 'people person', a 'social butterfly', a 'chatter', a 'busy body' - all things that are stifled by sitting at a desk in my house surrounded by nothing but silence and the occasional Lady GaGa song.

So when I do go out in public it's like seeing people for the first time. I get so excited. SO excited.

For instance, the first time I went to the Chandler Public Library I was the weird girl wandering around smiling at everyone and I might have even gotten teary-eyed. It took all I had to not put my arms out and start spinning in circles. I just stood there giddy, drinking in the voices, sounds, and books. I was ready to start singing a song as though I was in a musical. Thankfully my tears stayed in and so did the song.

I'm still this way. On Tuesday I went to the library on Sunny - best day ever. I was all smiles as I sang my heart out to Lady A on the way (thanks to traffic - no one can hear me...I hope).

I'm this way everywhere. I get so excited to go anywhere - Sams Club, the mall, Safeway, anywhere. I'm giddy, chatty, and seriously on the verge of happy tears. Beware of taking me out in public. I could be awkward.

I miss people. I think I'll get a part time job that includes social interaction. I think I neeeed it.

Cute picture. I love Safeway. I miss it! Awww. You should get a part time job at a craft store. Chatting and discounts!

I just wish I could be the one that catches you singing at the top of your lungs on a yellow bike in public. Oh how I wish...

Yea so maybe your not ready to be a mommy yet!! I feel that way some days, but I keep my mouth shut for fear I may speak baby to someone, not let out a song. I am the om singing wheels on the bus load enough to hear over my babys cries at the grocery store!
