Do you have AAADD?

I got this email, and laughed… but then I thought, "Wait a minute!" "My mind is like this all the time!" I for see problems ahead… LOL
I want to thank all of you who stop by here, and leave me comments, and for all of you who post such wonderful things on your spaces. I think you all have such a wonderful sense of humor, and laughter is the best way to get through difficult times. Thanks for making me laugh and thanks for the love. BIG HUGS, Steph
 
 
 
 
Do you have A.A.A.D.D. – 
Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder? 
This is how it manifests: 
 
I decide to water my garden.
As I turn on the hose in the driveway, 
I look over at my car and decide it needs washing. 
 
As I start toward the garage, 
I notice mail on the porch table that 
I brought up from the mail box earlier. 
 
I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car. 
I lay my car keys on the table, put the junk mail in the garbage can under the table, and notice that the can is full. 
 
So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the garbage first. 
But then I think,  since I’m going to be near the mailbox 
when I take out the garbage anyway,  I may as well pay the bills first. 
 
I take my check book off the table, and see that there is only one check left. 
My extra checks are in my desk in the study, so I go inside the house to my desk where I find the can of Coke I’d been drinking. 
 
I’m going to look for my checks,  but first I need to push the Coke aside so that I don’t accidentally knock it over. 
The Coke is getting warm, and I decide to put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold. 
 
As I head toward the kitchen with the Coke, a vase of flowers on the counter catches my eye–they need water. 
I put the Coke on the counter and  discover my reading glasses that  I’ve been searching for all morning. 

I decide I better put them back on my desk, but first I’m going to water the flowers. 
I set the glasses back down on the counter, fill a container with water and suddenly spot the TV remote. 
Someone left it on the kitchen table. 
 
I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, I’ll be looking for the remote, but I won’t remember that it’s on the kitchen table, so I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs, but first I’ll water the flowers. 
 
I pour some water in the flowers, but quite a bit of it spills on the floor. 
So, I set the remote back on the table, get some towels and wipe up the spill. 
 
Then, I head down the hall trying to  remember what I was planning to do. 

At the end of the day: 
 
the car isn’t washed 
 
the bills aren’t paid 
 
there is a warm can of Coke sitting on the counter 
 
the flowers don’t have enough water, 
 
there is still only 1 check in my check book, 
 
I can’t find the remote, 
 
I can’t find my glasses, 
 
and I don’t remember what I did with the car keys. 
 
Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, 
I’m really baffled because I know I was busy all damn day, 
and I’m really tired. 
I realize this is a serious problem, 
and I’ll try to get some help for it, 
but first I’ll check my e-mail….

    Blame it on the cat, and welcome to my world of complete disarray!!  I\’m supposed to have my second spine surgery in the last 2 months this Friday the 28th, but actually I\’m convinced they are going to work on my brain.  Yes, they walk among us, and yes, sometimes we walk with them.  Prayers sent for you.

    So true…  Hey, Steph.. I just realized you left comments on someof my pics.. mostly from you!  Sorry, I\’m a true example of thisblog!  So, yes, Livvy is my granddaughter.  And, I do know how beautiful it is here, and how fortunate I am to be able to walk acouple of blocks to see the sun come up over the ocean.  If I sawwhere you live, I\’d probably want to be there though.   Wish Iwere satisfied to sit still…
