This was sent to me by a friend and was just too funny!!! Enjoy a good laugh!!!

AAADD - Age Activated Attention Deficit DisorderThis 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 front verandah table that I brought up from the letter box earlier, just after the mailman had been.I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car. I put my car keys on the table, put the junk mail in the garbage bin beside the table, and notice that the bin 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 post box when I take out the garbage anyway (and the mailman picks up the mail at noon). I may as well pay the bills first. So, I take my check book off the table, and see that there is only 1 cheque left.My spare cheque book is in my desk in the study, so I go inside the house to my desk where I find the can of Coke I'd been drinking earlier this morning.I know Im going to look for my check book, but first I need to push the Coke can aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over. The Coke is warm, so I decide to put it in the refrigerator to make it cold again.As I head toward the kitchen with the Coke, a vase of flowers on the dining room table catches my eye - they need water.I put the Coke on the dining room table 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 put more water in the flowers.I set the glasses back down on the table, go to the kitchen sink to get a jug and fill it with water and suddenly spot the TV remote on the window sill. Some-one left it there.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 window sill, so I decide to put it back in the lounge room where it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers.I pour some water in the jug, but spill some on the floor. So, I set the remote back on the kitchen bench, 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 checks aren't written for the bills to be paid- there is a warm can of Coke sitting on the dining room table- 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,- the garbage hasn't been taken out- 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 now.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 favour. Forward this message to everyone you know, because I don't remember who the heck I've sent it to.Don't laugh -- if this isn't you yet, your day is coming!!GROWING OLDER IS MANDATORY.GROWING UP IS OPTIONAL.LAUGHING AT YOURSELF IS THERAPEUTIC.

Well the first full week of school is almost over. Three out of four of my kids love it so far! The one hold out hates change , but he will be fine with a little bit more time. I went to my daughters school yesterday to give her some medicen and she was upset with me because she thought I was going to take her home. She is really loving school! My husband and I are impressed with the teachers they all have.

My hubby is home from the family reunion he went to in the beloved NW. He is on leave now until he goes on his next tour. I have him" all to myself" until 27 Aug. It has been really nice having extra time together! He is enjoying being here in the mornings when the kids head off to school. I'am going to be really spoiled by the time he leaves again! Then it is off to South Carolina for 4 months. He will be close enough that we can seeh im sometimes and during Christmas break we will go to him. We will have to make sure the time we have together as a family is quality time!

Have a blessed day everyone!
