A Bit Errr . . . Distracted

I've been distracted lately . . . some might call it absent-minded. Blame it on missing the husband and daughter, I don't know!

It all started yesterday when I read Catherine's Sunday blog entry about her desire to get fit again and go walking with her dog, Murphy. It sounded so good to me. I've been wanting to exercise. And I was reading her entry on a perfectly lovely late Sunday afternoon with a cool crispness in the air, so I got motivated to get off my butt and go take my dog, Domino, on a walk. I put on his leash, left the house with a resounding "slam" in the front door. Then I realized, "Oh damn! My keys aren't in my pocket." Spent the next 60 minutes or so trying to get back in my house instead of walking. I finally got back in, but I felt so stupid and annoyed with myself!

Then that evening, Sunday night, I decided that I wanted to prepare all my food for a week's worth of lunches to take to work in a big sack so I'd eat healthier and stop spending so much money on lunch. I cut up veggies, made sandwiches, put frozen dinners in there. By the time I got done, that sack was heavy! After packing it away in the middle shelf of the fridge, I went to bed, woke up the next morning and grabbed that sack to take to work and sat it by the door so I wouldn't forget it, etc. Well, I took it to work with me, got to my desk and started unloading my "lunch". low and behold, instead of frozen dinners and cut up veggies, I opened the sack to find ---- a frozen turkey breast!!! I'd accidentally grabbed Tuesday night's dinner that was still unthawing in the same middle shelf of the fridge. Oh brother.

To top it all off, last night when I went out to my car, I'd left the trunk of my car open while I ate at a restaurant.

This has been a series of absent minded events! Wow, I think I'd better get my mind back on what I'm doing. Luckily, the family will be home today. Maybe I'm just missing them.

So, there's such a thing as too relaxed? Or is it that you are so used to chaos that you're thrown off track by control? ;)

Have a nice cuppa. BTW, I bought some Boston Tea & Mint. They were pricey because they are 2 cup bags, but yum, yum, yum. This will be my summer Iced tea.

Sorry that you've been so distracted but I had to laugh at the turkey breast story! Hope things get back to normal soon.
