Apparently, I now need someone to play mom to me. Leaving in 15, do you have purse? Stop with the email, it’s time to go grocery shopping. No you can’t watch another hour of tv. If you do, you’ll be wiped in the morning. But whatever it is, I can’t seem to leave. It’s not just about never wanting to leave a party–I’ve always want to stay with the fun stuff. But now I won’t leave a hated accounting task because I can’t dump it from my mind. I may be reading a great book, but part of my brain will still be on that spreadsheet of itemized deductions. WTF? Is this a normal part of aging? Or have I suddenly lost all the barriers in my brain and one task bleeds into the next no matter how I try to switch gears?
Or...and let’s be honest here...have I always had bleed in my tasks? But now my kids have grown up, maybe now the house is so quiet that I’m just noticing my problem for the first time. I don’t know. But I’ll probably be still wondering a half hour into my next task. Or at 2 am tomorrow morning. Help me out here. Is this normal?
