Time Warp

Does anyone else have the feeling that their entire pregnancy occurred in a Twilight Zone? And sadly the 21-and-under-crowd probably thinks of vampires and not Alfred Hitchcock when I say that, but rest assured I'm thinking more of the portly gentleman than the sparkling ones.*

I took my bike into the bike shop to get a tune up, and the owner asked when the last time I'd ridden it was.

"Um, not too long. I rode all the time last summer."


"Oh, wait. No, that's not right. I was pregnant all last summer.** So it would have been the summer before that."

I had literally completely forgotten that the summer of last year I was pregnant.  In my mind, the summer BEFORE that was last summer. And that happens all the time - someone will ask how long ago something occurred, and my answer will be X minus nine months. I mean, I remember being pregnant. But it's like it happened in a parallel universe.

It's very strange.

*Apparently Twilight Zone and Alfred Hitchcock Presents are two different shows that I've mind-melded into one.

**My mom wouldn't let me ride (adorably protective) and also it was 100 degrees at 8am pretty much every day of the summer so suck it.


  1. I think that way when I think about our cottage and how we were there 'a year ago'...wait a sec...no we weren't...I was on BED REST all last spring and Kaia was in the hospital all last summer so we didn't go anywhere. We're DEFINITELY going this summer though! Whoo hoo!

  2. Absolutely true. I just said that about Christmas, today. Oh it was just last Christmas. Wait, no it wasn't . . .
