This week I am introducing some new lessons, one of which is long division. Can I just tell you that long division has never been as long as it's been this week. I have had to break these problems down into so many steps, that I can't even add anymore. I realize that I am completely devoid of sense when I operate at any speed less than warp. It's as if any semblance of logic and order spills out where there exists little or no acceleration. Ack! I'm powered by centrifugal force!
This would explain some other recent issues; sewing is one. Surely, I should not apply Danica Patrick like force to the pedal. Especially, when I have no idea what the hell I'm doing in the first place! What's a girl to do to slow down? Does anyone else have this problem?

Of Centrifugal Force
First a bit of history. I am quick. I move quickly, speak quickly, dance on 1, learn quickly, anger quickly...you get it. I am married to the most laid back person on the planet. As a result of that union we have two fairly even paced/tempered children. "Yadda, yadda yadda", what this all means is that everyone is the house is operating at a speed much slower than mine. This is insanity inducing. Most verbal disagreements escalate in the heat of my inability to allow the other party to respond. (Actually, I have many times answered my own question/accusation and gone on to the next one before Favorite Guy gets a word in.) Think court, only you are sentenced before you can answer the first part of the indictment. It is equally frustrating all across the board.
