    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 mailbox 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 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 checkbook 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 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 realize 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. I 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.

    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 driveway is flooded
    the car isn't washed,
    the bills aren't paid,
    there is a warm can of Coke sitting on the counter,
    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.

    Do me a favor, will you? Forward this message to everyone you know, because
    I don't remember who I have sent it to.

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

    Have a good day everyone

    That was so funny. Sad and true, but funny!
    I was just saying yesterday that I don't know where my day goes. It seems like I'm busy all day and nothing ever gets done.
    My husband was just telling someone yesterday in good humor that it takes me all week just to read the Sunday paper! And that is so true. By the time I get the whole thing read I have 4 or 5 of our small town papers added to the pile. Thank goodness they are very short, small town, small news.
    Thanks for the chuckle to start my day off. Oh no, I just realized its Sunday and my papers will start adding up today!
