Life of a Mom with ADD

I wake up and get ready, get the older 2 off to school. On my list for the day, 7 loads of laundry, pick up, clean bathrooms, clean kitchen, clean pretty much everything. As I am picking up the house I find the head to Bonnie's Cu-pie doll when I pick it up I headr it jingle. I look inside to find my 5 missing keyboard keys. I open my laptop to put the keys back on (they are broken by the way) and I think to my self, while I have my computer open I'll just check my e-mail. While checking my e-mail I see I need to reply to a few and publish some blog comments. While I am publishing some blog comments I see some of my peeps have updated their blogs, well i can't NOT comment so I comment. After all that I check my photography class message board and see that my teacher has replied to some of my questions and told me how to fix the haze i am getting in my backlighting pictures. I grab my camera and take Colby downstairs in front of the big windows to take some more pictures. I then upload them to my computer to see my results. Make a few edits in photoshop and realize I have just waisted 2 hours of my morning!! It's not easy staying on task when you have ADD. I continue my day ping ponging around the house. I eventually got it all done (at 10:00pm) but i never stay on one task at a time. I jump from bathroom to kitchen and bedroom to laundry!! It isn't fun, may I need some medication!!


Oh and since it is against my religion to leave you with out a picture here is the picture I took of Colby! It is still a bit hazy but better than the ones I was gettingPhotobucket

This sounds familiar! I love your pic of Colby. He is looking so grown up, I can't believe it.

I know exactly what you are talking about!! I too have ADD and although I got 100 miles an hour during the day, at night I feel like I got nothing accomplished!

I don't have ADD -- so what's my excuse? Your description of your day sounded just like one of mine. I can never seem to see a task through from start to finish -- the only difference . . . You finished your day at 10 pm! I just gave up and went to bed.

I hear ya with ADD... I'm cleaning the kitchen and start picking up little pieces of pa er on the ground and before I know it I'm up stairs in the shower. Where the transisition happened... Who knows!

Now I know my problem - ADD - isn't there medication for that? You should write a book "If you give a mom a to-do list" It might become a popular children's book one day :)
