I swear, I have ADD. Seriously.
I cannot focus on anything to save my life. I was telling my mother-in-law the other day that I'm amazed that I was able to shave both legs in the shower the other day without getting distracted.
I put my cell phone in the fridge the other day. Took me 1/2 an hour to find the darned thing. I had gone to grab some water and I guess I had it in my hand and set it down on the shelf without realizing it.
I locked my keys in the car (again) the other day too. Thankfully, it was while it was sitting in the driveway at my house and the front door was already open with the spare keys easily accessible to me inside. But still.
I have taken to writing everything down. EVERYTHING. Appointments, commitments, packing lists, schedules, lunch menus for the kids. I have to or else I will forget something. Every night before I go to bed, I write out the things I need to get done (errands) and the things I need to take in the car with me on a Post It note and put it on the front door.
I often feel like I am living the story, "If You Give A Mouse A Cookie". I'll go to get started on something and get distracted by something else. I get 1/2 way through the "something else" and get distracted yet again. And so on. And so on. I'm 1/2 way done with 100 things around the house. And it's driving me crazy. Then I started a list of the things/projects I need to finish up around here and was distracted yet again and never finished the list.
It's sad. Truly. Does anyone have any Ritialin? Oh LOOK! Something shiny...
