ADD Stole My Car Keys

There is a long weekend coming up, thank God, because organizationally, I am at the end of my rope. My purse is so full of receipts and Lord knows what else, that I have given up on it; it sits on the front seat of my van, unused. My bank card is in the console, my remaining lipstick is in my coat pocket, my chequebook is under the seat. My son, DJ, has plenty of clean socks, but only one pair of available jeans; Princess has no socks, and so must wear her brothers; Baby has socks, but none of them match. My bed is broken, so I am sleeping on DJ's bottom bunk, and I can't get my room tidy enough to photograph my bedroom set so I can put it on Kijiji to sell. I sent DJ off to school with an apple for his snack, and left work on my break to go to the grocery store, get him some lunch and deliver it (upside, I got to see my awesome kid for a couple of minutes in the middle of the morning). And don't even get me started with all the clean clothes ALL OVER THE UPSTAIRS because I can't get them organized and away!!!! AAARGH! Deep breath.

As I look out the window, I see that the sun has finally come out, and my house, messy and disorganized as it is, still stands. We have had no floods, and we have had no fires to destroy our community as they are having in Manitoba and Alberta. I will pick my kids up and we will sit down to dinner together, play outside with the neighbors for a while, and go to bed, safe and secure. And in the morning, we will start all over again, disorganized as hell, but together, safe, and secure. I do love my life. Another deep breath.

Totally ADD is a great site for ADD information with a ton of humour thrown in. It was founded in 2009 by comedian Rick Green (of Red Green fame), Dr. Umesh Jain, and Rick's wife, Ava Green. It features another comedian Patrick McKenna. I am avidly waiting for their next book ADD Stole My Car Keys, and that's where the title of this post came from.

  1. Wow, you are my hero you know that. I am facing a similar home situation but with the sun shining it is hard to get anything done, isn't it? I am hoping tomorrow's forecast will allow me to get the same stuff done my dear. Our mantra tonight should be: MY HOME IS CLEAN, COMFY, ORGANIZED AND BEAUTIFUL
