Another Week, Another Tuesday

 Hello!  I can hardly believe another week has gone by already.

I sometimes feel like I have ADD.  I start on one project and before I finish, I start another.  For example, I'm working on a sewing project and trying to organize my scrapbook room at the same time!  Same thing when I'm doing things on the computer.  Before I finish one task, I'm starting another (organizing photos, paying bills, checking my emails, looking up my orders, looking at bank statements, researching, and so on). 

I support my sister from a distance since she is immuno-compromised.  I see my mom several times a week and talk to her on the phone almost daily.  I try to keep her finances, appointments, and medical issues in order (as well as my own!). It is getting harder and harder to understand her due to aphasia/dementia.  This website explains Primary Progressive Aphasia almost exactly like our experience.  

Maybe it's not ADD. Maybe I just have too many irons in the fire.  And speaking of that phrase... It dates back to the 1500's and the blacksmithing trade.  If a blacksmith had too many pieces of iron in his fire at the same time, the fire would cool, and none of the pieces would heat properly.  The takeaway is you may be trying to do many things and not giving enough attention to what's important. (Thanks, Grammarist)

Moving on. This is an interesting idea!

Makes sense, right?

Cracks me up!

And last, but not least...

Have a great week!


  1. Mom's work makes her feel like she has ADD too. She usually has around 80 files and email is constantly coming in. It's hard to focus on just one task, get it done and move on as she wants to do it all at once, but it doesn't work that way.

  2. I hear you on too many irons in the fire! Sometimes though, I thrive in those situations. Since it is summer, my kids are not here, there, and everywhere so I sometimes sit in my chair at night and think, 'Was there something I needed to do?' And the answer is no! I kind of want it to be Fall again.

  3. If the Good Lord put me on this Earth to accomplish a certain number of things, right now i am so far behind, i will never die. Too much at once is only part of the problem.

    Thanks for the laughs!
