Is it just me or what?

I get sidetracked and go from one thing to the next, while this can be a good thing with 4 kids and learning through living it can also cause some stupid stuff.

Case in point, I just started to unload the dishwasher, I had the bottom rack done and got to the silverware and then realized that they were DIRTY!!!!!!

I do rinse my dishes well but there was something on a knife and made me go back and take all the dishes out of the cupboard that I just put in there. I mean my gosh I don't think I've ever done that.

I do things all the time like forget I'm boiling water or start something and get called away to help a kid and then completely forget about it. Until something triggers it...

I used to blame this stuff on pregnant brain, then breastfeeding, I figure my kids sucked my brains right out of me :)

So now what is my excuse???

I just have a lot going on all at once, in my head and in my house :)

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I do the same thing and I have unloaded dirty dishes before too. Today I have a sick child so add that to the mix and its even worse.

It could also be that your brain is so full of fabulous thoughts that there's no room for the more trivial stuff like whether or not your dishes are dirty. :)

I've emptied a dirty dishwasher too! :O I guess it's a pretty common thing after all. ;)

I know what you mean about stopping in the middle of things-constantly- and forgetting about where you were or what you were doing. I've said more than once that I'm happy when I can complete a thought or a sentence. I don't think that's shooting too high, do you?

Steph,
This is so me these days. Bball is making me feel so hairy. So much is racing thru my mind. I can't sleep. I have lists everywhere. UGH!!!
It is life.

*sigh* I can certainly relate to this one!! I've had that going on lately more than usual and it can be a bit unnerving at times. I'm encouraged to know that I'm not alone in it.

Thanks for your friendship, Stephanie.
