Lack of Sleep Again?/Underwear Stuck in a Window, Really?

Tuesday, October 08, 2013

Something happened yesterday that has never happened to me before. Had to be from lack of sleep. Or is it really? For the first time I got a pair of underwear (clean) stuck in a window. Not sure just anybody can do that w/o even trying, but I did. Got it out of the window, then couldn't find where I put them. You see, I wonder around the house with stuff in my hands, trying to do what I remember needs to be done, without dropping the remnants of what I am doing. Just wondering around. Like the time I was brushing my teeth and remembered that there was something else I needed to do that took me through the living room. Did I finish brushing my teeth? Oh, no, not me! I raced to where I needed to do what I needed to do and ended up with toothpaste drops on the living room rug. It was easily cleaned, however. I can not tell you how many times things have been misplaced because I drug them along with me to do something in another part of the house and then forgot to drag them back. I guess it is true that some of us spend half of our days looking for things. It seems I spend half of my days losing them in the first place. LOL

If I just thought I could remember to do the next task before I finish a present task, maybe so many things wouldn't get misplaced. Or maybe I would remember to turn the stove off.
I believe DH is beginning to get concerned for me. A friend of mine eased my conscious a little bit when she told me she forgets things, too, and says it's because we have too much on our minds. That's it! Some things are too heavy on my mind and I struggle to hold my mind up. Now, If I could just figure out how to do things decently and in order, get those things off my mind and into a schedule, it would be wonderful . . . One thing I believe. I will not get underwear stuck in my window again.

I'm working on it emoticon A light bulb idea is bound to come.

Thanks for stopping by to read my ramblings!
Have a great day, All!

    I am sitting here rolling because I do the same thing!!! Sister fixed food for GS last night and lost it as soon as it was done. We fixed supper again and found the original tucked in the microwave. And life goes on. Keep Sparkin'!!

    You are a multi tasker...I think what might help is just do the thing at hand if another idea pops into your head...dismiss it until you complete your first task. I used to do one thing, think of another thing ,and my day would end up with all sorts of things not getting done. FOCUS on one task at a time and one room at a time.

    Why would you put your underwear out the window? I use to forget what I was doing more when I was younger and trying to do too many things. Now, life is at my pace and I routinely put my keys in the same place and everything is more routine I don't have that problem so much.

    I get easily sidetracked, too. I've always done this, and I had to work hard to create a lot of routines for myself to become more productive. Even then, it can be hard to stick with the routines. I have to remind myself to stay with the task at hand and not get distracted and go off to do other things in the middle.
