In need of a tune-up

I think long term sleep deprivation has significantly impacted my thought processes, and this is a busy time of year that adds a hunk of stress to the mix. This happened a little while ago and is an example of what I mean.

>(thinking to self) I need to put the seasoned meat in a covered bowl so Son-of-My-Heart can make himself tacos when he gets home from rehearsals.

>I can use a small bowl and I think there are some in the dishwasher so I will just unload those.

>It looks like the bowls have been unloaded, so I will grab cups and mugs and put them away.

>We are dirtying a lot more mugs now that Son is making himself coffee. I wonder if he uses the same mug more than once.

> My mug is here on the counter next to the espresso machine.

> I think I will have a cup of coffee.

> No, I think I will make a cup of tea with the Jasmine tea I bought today.

> (Fill mug with water. Unwrap box of tea. Put mug in microwave to heat).

> Walk out of the kitchen.

Fortunately I remembered the meat and realized why I went in the kitchen to begin with.

I just remembered that my cup of tea is still in the microwave. It is probably cold now.

What an honor to make your day! I know what you mean about sleep deprivation. I rarely sleep more than 4 hours a night.

Raising my hand and saying "amen" about the sleep deprivation. It's not so bad now that I have the CPAP, but I [still] haven't slept well all week. I think it's because of the weather changes.

Thank you for this award! I'll do my own awarding tomorrow, after I've caught a Z or two.

Gosh, I am dealing with sleep deprivation today and that whole scenario made perfect sense to me.

My husband calls that "long term loss of short term memory." I just call it CRS (easier to remember).

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
