I think I am beginning to experience the effects of having too much “To Do” on too little sleep.
I like to think that I have always been a fairly responsible and dependable person. But, lately, my behavior is calling that into question: I can’t seem to remember anything! Okay, maybe anything is too all-inclusive of a word; but, nevertheless, my brain just doesn’t seem to be functioning at optimum levels.
- Ever since the twins have been born I have had a terrible time remembering to pay bills. The “grace period” has many times been my saving grace.
- Last month I incurred a healthy overdue fine on the kids’ library books because I simply got a wrong due date stuck in my head.
- This past Sunday I was planning to pay a lady at church for a Bible study book I “bought” last month but had forgotten to pay for. This very lady sat beside me during the service… we visited a little after the service… and yet it wasn’t until I was driving home from the service that I realized I had forgotten to give her my money. In fact, paying her had never even once crossed my mind.
- Last night after putting the babies to bed I went to the store to buy diapers (which I had forgotten were running low until I used the last one) and to return a movie. Halfway to the store, I realized that I had forgotten to grab the movie.
