I knew I’d lost it when…

Have you ever had a moment where you realize, mid-breakdown, that you have REALLY gone overboard?

Today’s episode of “I knew I’d lost it when” occurred in my kitchen, as I found myself in tears—literally, tears, plural, from both eyes—over a can opener that I cannot find.  This was seconds after I’d looked in the correct place (caddy which holds serving utensils, etc), all the likely places (silverware drawer, potholder drawer, foil drawer, dishwasher, etc) and resorted to every other odd place (lazy Susan, refrigerator, under the refrigerator, behind the refrigerator—how a can opener could end up there I don’t know—every cabinet, through everything again, around the living room, in the laundry room….yes, I broke down.  And I cried.  I don’t think I’ve cried in eleven months.

Now before you think I’m completely crazy and refer me to the asylum, this didn’t come out of thin air.  It had been one heck-of-a day, week, and month.  And all I wanted to do was enjoy a nice dinner, and well, it’s all very frustrating.

Thankfully, I am now calmed down and managed to find something else to eat.  But my can opener is still missing.  Should you happen across it, I’d be ever-so grateful.

UPDATE: I noticed that the can opener had reappeared on Sunday; or it was never missing….  It remains to be seen if my sanity will similarly come home.
