I got this off my email, but it pretty much sums up an ordinary day for me...

Recently, I was diagnosed with 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 soda I'd been drinking.

I'm going to look for my checks,
but first I need to push the soda aside
so that I don't accidentally knock it over.

The soda is getting warm,
and I decide to put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.

As I head toward the kitchen with the soda,
a vase of flowers on the counter
catches my eye - they need water.

I put the soda 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 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 soda 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 day, and I'm really tired.

I realize this is a serious problem,
and I'll try to get some help for it and find out more about it on the Internet...
but first I'll check my e-mail...

    Well, I started out yesterday finishing a purse design and as I sat at the machine I realized that I needed some elastic.... so I headed for the kitchen drawer and that's when I got sidetracked by a few dishes that needed putting away..... as I was finishing that task I noticed my favorite coffee say's "Got Caffeine ?" on it then I realized that I hadn't had any coffee yet so I headed toward the coffee maker to get that party Not long after that I found myself painting and redecorating the entryway to my sons bedroom. "Oh yeah" I'd better mention that it is his wife's room too..... and I am just visiting. God bless you.
Love, Luyah emoticon

    OMG ! ! That is so great !

I was actually heading to enter my nutrition when I stopped to search my Sparkpage, to see if anybody visited me today, but no one had come, so I went back to my start page when I realized I hadn't spun the wheel today, so I went there, and spun the wheel, then I remembered, I didn't check my friend feed today. so I went there and I saw your blog, and so here I am. Now what was it that I came to do, again?
