Overwhelmed

In some ways, I feel like I'm losing my mind. I can see how people with dementia don't realize that something is amiss. I can't tell you how many times I've done something that I thought was right, thought I read the instructions correctly, looked it over, and had the client email back with a "You forgot this" or "The change is in the wrong place" or similar missive letting me know I suck. OK, they don't actually SAY that I suck but they're thinking it. I seem to keep screwing up over and over on the same things

I know it's because I'm trying to do too many things at one time, but I do wonder about what my memory will be like when I'm in my golden years seeing as it's pretty much in the crapper now. Poor Dwight. He'd better get used to saying, "I told you that 5 times already. Sheesh, woman." Or something along those lines. 

How many times do the experts have to say that multitasking isn't efficient and we are just deluding ourselves into thinking it works. Yeah, well. I'm trying to write this while doing about 4 other things and...where was I going with this?

Anyway. I've cried heartily twice, welled up at least a couple of times, and silently sobbed while preparing water for tea. Which I just realized is still in the microwave and that was like, an hour ago. Sigh. My boss says "There's no crying in printing" but he is sooo wrong.
