There is a blog I visit and chat with called center of attention deficit disorder.  I wonder often if the reason that I like this blog is because it should be the name of my blog.....

This week I can't stay focused on one thing long enough to get anything done.  I'm talking serious distraction going on here.  Just 10 minutes ago I went to my little craft cabinet 
to get out an ink pad and stamps to use for a special little project I've got going on. I came to the computer to look at a picture of my inspiration piece.  Within seconds I had completely forgotten why I was here at the computer.  Didn't even realize I was distracted until I looked for my coffee and it wasn't on the coffee table.  "Hmmm", I thought.  "Where might my coffee be?  I should go look."  It was on the dining room table where I have all the supplies for the project I am currently working on.  The one where I was going to use the ink and stamp that I laid down just 3 or 4 minutes prior.....  

Oh, now I remember how I got distracted.   I remembered that yesterday was a good day.  Good day thing #1 - when I parked outside the gym and went to the parking meter to pay I saw that it was "in need of service."  That means I got to park free without the fear of getting a ticket.  Ooowee!  I get tickets about once a month - sometimes within minutes of the time the meter expires.  How does that happen?  How can a city like Detroit, which is in constant disarray, have a meter reader that finds my car within minutes of expiration???? 

Oops.  I lost track again.....back to my good day.  Good day thing #2 - someone had found the keys that I lost there on Saturday.  Ooooweeee!!

Good day thing #3 - As I was going up the stairs to the workout area my email dinged on my phone.  When I checked it is said I had won a giveaway!  Little ole me won a giveaway.  I never win anything!  Ooooooweeeeee!!!

I won this:


Isn't it sweet?  It was made by Shepherds Daughter.

She donated this little gem to be given away by Sunny Vanilla to help her celebrate her blogiversary.

It is lovely.  I have a major romance going with all things tree related - bark, leaves, branches, nests, birds... - so I'm really happy to have it.

Happy Blogiversary Sunny Vanilla!  

 And thanks!

I'm going to try to get focused and get something finished today - something wonderful of course!

Make something wonderful today!

SO FUNNY....you sound like my daughter...she tells me these stories all the time and I laugh until tears roll down my face. But for an ADD'er...life is one sweet surprise after another isn't it?
Blessings!

Oh my...I could have written this post. This is my life! The older I get, the worse it gets. My husband used to tease me, but now he is doing it too! It all gets done in the end though...usually a whole bunch of things at once.

Have a great day!
