It IS only June, right?

Every time I took maternity leave, I had the strange sensation of being unaware, at times, of what day it was. Like I'd look at a calendar in the middle of the week and have to think REALLY HARD about whether it was Tuesday the 2nd, Wednesday the 3rd or Thursday the 4th. Ultimately I'd decide it was Wednesday the 3rd, only to have someone tell me on the phone later that it was Saturday.

But something happened to me on Friday that I'm pretty sure has never happened to me before. I saw something that made me forget what MONTH it was.

I was in Hobby Lobby picking something up for a baby shower, and on my way through the store to get to the party supply section, I came upon THIS:

And I was all, WHOA. IT'S NOT EVEN HALLOWEEN YET. And then I turned around and almost bumped into THIS:

So this was not a one-shot deal, some strange Christmas ornament display in a corner of the store, all by itself. And after I processed the fact that it's not Halloween yet, my mind started literally sputtering in my head ... "It's ... wait a minute. It's ... we haven't had Labor Day. It's ... we haven't gone to the lake yet for our August trip to Chattanooga. It's ... we haven't gone to the BEACH yet for the 4th of July. It's ... IT'S JUNE."

Not to be deterred, I hung a right at the next aisle:

And the next:


It was no fluke. THERE WAS MORE OF IT THAN JUST WHAT'S IN THESE PHOTOS. I just couldn't bring myself to take any more pictures of it IN JUNE. I felt like my world was imploding. I fear that I may not be able to enter Hobby Lobby again until November.

OK, that's just ridiculous! They start putting stuff out earlier and earlier every year. Thanksgiving just gets brushed under the doormat...makes me sad.
