Sometimes I wonder if my ADD blogger brain shows in my writing here on site. I must admit it probably does because this blog is truly 100% who I am. One who reads my blog daily and then meets me in person can totally say “yup that is you”. Am I right or am I right? {asking those who have met me in real life}

I honestly cannot stay on topic for long, I go off on all sorts of tangents, even in the middle of a sentence. Here is how my brain works —

  • Earlier today K-man was running around and …
  • What?
  • No seriously. Look squirrel, outside! Look
  • … saying that he is Optimus Prime and that is what I am to call him today or else he …
  • Oh wow …. did you paint in class today? Because you have paint on your hands.
  • …. else he would not respond and listen to me.
  • Oh remember the other day when I asked you to fix that thing I bought? Well I fixed it.

Now, did you keep up with that? It’s difficult to type it out in an example but that is seriously how I talk. The thing is that my brain can only handle so much at once and due to my many years of multi-tasking {even when I worked outside of the home}, I have sadly lost my short term memory.

Sometimes I interrupt people while they are talking simply because unless I blurt out what is in my mind at that moment, I will forget never to get that memory back. I just can not seem to focus . Ever. I do great working. I get things done and am a successful work from home mother of three, but my memory is failing.

Seems my brain is failing me more lately than ever. I have to use a calendar to write down what is all planned for family things and important agenda items for myself are on a post-it note on my desk because without the post-it note and calender — I would never, ever be on time for anything and miss a lot of deadlines and appointments.

Can we say “vacation”? I think I am ready to have one.

    If you’re having trouble remembering, at least you’re smart enough to take counter-active measures, like that calendar. :) Your squirrel comment made me laugh, and think of the movie ‘Up.’ Love that movie!!
