Let sleeping dogs lie

Today is what I call a brain fog day.

Actually, it's no so much fog as mud or treacle.

Physically I'm grand.  Mentally though things are different.  I feel like my brain ran a marathon yesterday and it's still in exhausted mode.  I have no idea why as I haven't been doing anything particularly strenuous in the mental department of late, apart from trying to work out how a website got hacked and trying to order groceries on-line.

It's not depression [I’m actually quite cheerful] and it's not really apathy, though I would quite like to put today on hold until tomorrow.  It's just that the brain just ain't working like it should.  My razor sharp mind has become a razor blunt mind.

If I were diagnosing myself I would hazard a guess that I'm suffering from a lack of sleep.  The symptoms fit but there is one small snag – I had a grand night's sleep with some quite pleasant dreams for a change.  But if you want to reconstruct my present state for yourself my best advice would be to stay awake for about three days [and nights].

I think our Penny has the same problem as she looks just how I feel.

Sleeping Penny

I think the best description is a state of meh.

  1. “I had a grand night's sleep with some quite pleasant dreams for a change.”

    That’ll probably be it, Gramps.  If those dreams were really pleasant, you’re probably exhausted!

  2. I can concur that getting a good night's sleep promotes brain fogginess–at least when one is older. After years and years of being a chronic insomniac I, for some inexplicable reason, am now conking out shortly after my head hits the pillow and sleeping through the night. As a result not only does my brain seem to foggier than normal during the day than when I was tossing and turning the night through but my old body is complaining something awful about laying in one position for most of the night as well.

    And I'm having rather vivid dreams myself lately but (unfortunately?) not ones that provide an excuse for divorce.
