When days are scrambled

It’s Wednesday night here at the moment. But my brain doesn’t seem to register. All week I’ve been a day ahead of myself. Not great when you find yourself booking things in for the next day thinking it was later the same day. Oops.

I’m not sure why it happens, but it seems to happen every so often. Sometimes I’m a day behind, others, like this one, when I am a day ahead. I’m guessing there’s a scientific explanation but right now I’d settle for a cure, lol.

Do you ever have times when you can’t get your days straight?

  1. We have the annual switch to Daylight Savings time coming up in two weeks. If you aren’t mentally trashed by then, you will be after.

    I haven’t even been paying attention to the day of the week for a while. My work doesn’t require me to have a daily schedule, so I have let that float away to save what is left of my sanity.

    • We are stuck with daylight saving until the first Sunday in April when we switch back our clocks (6 months of daylight saving is way too long).

  2. I do that, too! For me, it started when I moved my work home and then didn’t have the external reminders of what day it was. All days look alike!

    • They really do at times. Not sure what got into my head this week but it’s been frustrating, lol.

    Oooo I get this all the time haha and it sucks!

  4. It’s a common occurrence for retired people such as myself. Sometimes I think I need a whiteboard like they have in our hospitals here, that says Today is… Your nurse is…🤣


    • Haha, I can just imagine, Deb. I don’t think it matters as much when you are retired, does it? I would love the luxury of it not mattering whether it was a Monday or a Thursday!

  5. Yup, I’m a day off more often than not. You’d think it would be worse on weeks where we have Monday off, but strangely enough, not so much.

    • I think when there is a public holiday I make more of an effort to be conscious of the days (although I usually comment how it feels off, but I don’t mess up). Brains are weird things, hey!

  6. Yes! I’m forever saying it “feels like” a Wednesday or a Sunday or whatever. How can that be? How can a day feel like a day it’s not??
