DIAGNOSED WITH A.A.A.D.D.

DOCTOR
Thank goodness there's a name for this disorder.
Somehow I feel better even though I have it!!
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 Pepsi I'd been drinking.
I'm going to look for my checks,
but first I need to push the Pepsi a side
so that I don't accidentally knock it over.
The Pepsi is getting warm,
and I decide to put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.
As I head toward the kitchen with the Pepsi,
a vase of flowers on the counter
catches my eye--they need water.
I put the Pepsi 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 Pepsi 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.

THERE IS A CURE::

I HAVE TO CREDIT THE INTERNET AND EMAIL FOT THE ABOVE DESCRIPTION OF Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder. I DO HAVE DAYS LIKE THAT,,,

TODAY IS A SPECIAL DAY:: MY BIRTHDAY AND AS A SPECIAL TREAT FOR ALL MY FELLOW BLOGGERS; A BABY PICTURE RIGHT OUT OF MY “BABY BOOK” My sisters don’t  have there own baby books and I’ve heard about it for years.

BABYFRAKER003

AT BIRTH: 7 pounds 2 ounces and 19 inches long. Blonde Blue eyes, I will skip the picture of the foot prints and the picture of my bronzed baby shoes. At my first medical check up 2 months after birth I had gained 3 pounds but the major complaint was: Gas on stomach “need for frequent use of suppositories” AND NOW I KNOW WHY I HAVE A.A.A.D.D. The entries in the “baby book” stop after about 3 months so I was already becoming a P.I.A.

THANKS FOR VISITING JOE TODD

I've been having trouble paying attention to things lately too, but it's only because I'm doing too much. I can't understand why, because I'm much too lazy to be doing more than a fraction of these things.
