How Long Have You Been Without Sleep, And What Were The Consequences?
Hello and welcome to Tuesday's Question~
How long Have You Been Without Sleep, And What Were The Consequences?
Because, the consequences of a night without sleep, make you feel as if your brain is totally fried- gone.
Although, the more I think of it the image of the compass above might be a better illustration. In any case, if you're anything like me, you face dreadful consequences when you lose sleep.
For instance, you may leave home with two different earrings on, ( guys and girls) or forget to zip up your pants...or lock your keys in your car... just think about it a minute because I know you've done something-
I'm not sure how long I've gone without sleep all at once, but I know every time I've missed too much sleep, trouble is on the way... Like the time I was stuck at the Mercy of my bathroom faucet and when I walked around with something on the front of shirt half the day,(Momma Said There Would Be Days Like This), and most recently Has It Really Been A Week when I lost small pieces of an entire week.
Plus, I know I actually wrote a post entitled, I'm tired one time, but I can't find it. Isn't it something how I assume you're going to read all of these posts anyway...like you have time to read all of this dribble, answer Tuesday's Question, and read three old posts-
I had a marriage counselor write out the word assume for my husband and I on a piece of paper during a counseling lesson one time. I was so excited, finally someone was on my side and was going to tell this jerk how right I was about everything.
Finally some validation I thought, she's going to get him good...but no, she proceeded to "Kill me Softly With His song..." Ms. Psychologist who probably had a crush on Mr. Charm wrote on her psychologists know everything pad, Assume in bold letters, then separated the word and said that I needed to look at the word closely; she went on to say that to assume anything always makes an "Ass-out of U and me" I guess I'm just an ass...whatever-
Consequently, we never went back to her and every time I think or use the word assume I think about her and him, and assume since he was also a psychologist I probably wasn't getting too fair a deal-
Anyway, I'm sorry, I'm babbling so much...and that I was late today with Tuesday's question. And I guess you've figured out that this is a consequence of another sleepless night, but I can't wait to hear your comments.
That is if I make it out of this frying pan, and I'm not sure that's going to happen...What if I don't live through this experience and I can't write about anything anymore? I need to slow down and try to get more sleep- Because you know the saying "If you can't stand the heat get out of the frying pan, or away from the fire, or...oh I can't remember I'm in a skillet...
Does anyone have a spatula?

Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons
Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.
Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.
Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light
She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free
For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well
Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination
