As my Dad would say, my "head is full of tommyrot." I have so much on my mind that I seem to flit from one thing to another leaving a trail of things undone. I have the best of intentions, but I also get easily distracted. Oh, I better do a load of laundry. So I do. And then I forget about it and three days later I have to wash it again because it stinks.
I have e-mails that need answering, and I mark them "keep as new" on my account, and then they get further down on the list and I forget about them until I have so many emails I have to start deleting and then--oh my!--there's that one I meant to answer two weeks ago.
I'm drowning in minutiae.
How did I ever accomplish anything when I had a full-time job?
