Stupid things I've done in the past 24 hours

I'm having a severe senior moment or something. It's the lack of sleep. I was doing so well, and then kaboom! I'm totally back to up all night, not sleeping most of the day, and exhausted all day long. Even worse, the Girl is also having sleep issues. That is a bad combination.

She comes downstairs last night at 3, full of vinegar, and wants to chat. I want her to go back to bed, so I turn off the computer and go upstairs. We get to the bathroom, and I start doling out my pills. I take them all in one big gulp (less water) so I put them into a little paper cup one at a time. She was talking. I lost track and went to bed without actually taking the pills. Dumb.

I ordered our groceries online and forgot several must have items. Like bananas. Sweet potatoes. Yukon Golds. Milk. Little things. Dumb.

Made incredibly inconvenient appointment that conflicts with another inconvenient appointment while looking at my appointment book. Dumb.

Purposely lied to a clinician this morning because she ticked me off. Not so dumb.

Split my chapped lip open, leading to copious bleeding. Dumb and gross.

Made kids clean kitchen. Smart and gross.

Ate McDonalds Oriental Chicken Salad. Good but off my diet. Dumb.

Ordered copy of book I've already read from Amazon.com. Dumb.

Lost my purse, which is huge, twice. In my dining room. So dumb.

Forgot to pay phone bill this month. Dumb.

Forgot to fill Girl's text messages. Smart.

And it's only noon. I'm really not all there today.

Ummm, senior moment? I think not. I do a lot of that stuff. I do the book thing all the time. It's very irksome. And I never, ever go to the grocery store without forgetting one thing.

But the oatmeal whole wheat bread you posted and I made yesterday, genius.

I can so relate right now. My plate is overflowing and my body/brain just wants silence, serenity and sleep.

My advice: Go back to bed. Take a nap. Now.
