Missing again!

I do have to say, maintaining a blog is not the easiest thing in the world! LOL. It has been a month since i last posted. Its not like nothing has been happening, so much has. I just keep letting other things pull me away. Im reminded of that email chain that goes around every so often, the a.a.a.d.d poem:

Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder
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 my car needs washing. As I start toward the garage, I notice that there is 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 down on the table, put the junk mail in the trash 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 trash first.

But then I think, since I'm going to be near the mailbox when I take out the trash anyway, I may as well pay the bills first. I take my check book off the t able, 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
that I had 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. I see that the Coke is getting warm, and I decide I should 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 to be watered.

I set the Coke down on the counter, and I 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 I spot the TV remote. Someone left it on the kitchen table. I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, I will 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...

Now I pour some water in the flowers, but quite a bit of it spills on the floor. So, I set the remote back down 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 one 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 long, 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.

Don't laugh - - if this isn't you yet, - - your day is coming!

So, gotta really begin to use this PDA that i got last month. Its supposed to help me be organized. Do I look organized yet?
