Attention Deficit Wednesday

ADD Wednesday goes like this:

  • Wake up. 
  • Check Facebook (Don't act like you don't do this too). 
  • Spend 10 minutes trying to decide if I should exercise this morning or tonight. Or should I eat breakfast first? Or maybe a snack? 
  • Go for a walk.
  • Eat breakfast. 
  • Let my friends know that I exercised and ate a healthy breakfast because it doesn't count if I don't tell anyone.
  • Take a shower
  • Go pick up child #2 from a sleepover. 
  • Remember today is Wednesday, not Thursday, which means we have lots of places to go this afternoon.
  • Come home and walk aimlessly through the house trying to decide where to start first. (Okay, here's my caveat. We have been focused on school and not eating out. In other words, my house has descended into the depths of disaster that bothers even me. Like, I wouldn't let Matthew's neighbor friend play in the house for the last two weeks because it was that embarrassing.)
  • Tommy wants to add a pie chart to his project. Try to figure out how to make a pie chart in Openoffice.
  • Start loading the dishwasher. 
  • Remember I need to figure out camping details for Charlotte's trip this weekend. Message appropriate people.
  • Load more of the dishwasher.
  • Eat a snacky lunch.
  • Decide I'm really going to try to sign up Charlotte for musical theater next year. Email the person to get put on the waitlist.
  • Start picking up clutter and trashing all the loose papers. Find Tommy's cleats from last year. Decide to post them on facebook to sell. 
  • Pick up more clutter. Notice the floor is really dirty.
  • Start sweeping the floor. 
  • Start looking at all the other dust and decide I should dust everything else first and do the floors last. Ooh, my rug is crooked! I need to fix that.
  • Mail arrives with an HOA letter because our clover is trying to take over the world.
  • Go outside and cut the grass enough so we don't get another HOA letter.
  • Email HOA person. 
  • Run the dishwasher. 
  • Go to library to return our overdue books. Realize we left one at home, and I can't renew it. 
  • Go to Biggby's to get my free coffee. =)
  • Go to Tommy's guitar lesson.
  • Receive and send texts about all the cancelled evening activities thanks to the potential for storms.
  • Make a page in my bullet journal titled "Operation Get The House Back Under Control" and list all the things I need to catch up on.
  • Come home. Find the overdue book. Go back to the library.
  • Come home again. Begin dinner. 

So...yeah. This is my Thursday. I mean Wednesday.

I might have taught my kids some bad theology. Or maybe not. It's unclear at the moment.

On death...

It's getting dark up in here.
