Friday Funny

I wanted to leave you all with a smile on your face and some laughs in your heart for the weekend.




Thank goodness there's a name for this disorder.

Somehow I feel better even though I have it!!

Recently, I was diagnosed with "Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder" or A.A.A.D.D.

This 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 porch table that I brought up from the mail box earlier.

I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car.

I lay my car keys on the table, put the junk mail in the garbage can under the table, and notice that the can 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 mailbox when I take out the garbage anyway, I may as well pay the bills first.

I take my check book off the table, and see that there is only one check left.

My extra checks are in my desk in the study, so I go inside the house to my desk where I find the can of Dr. Pepper I'd been drinking.

I'm going to look for my checks, but first I need to push the Dr. Pepper aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over.

The Dr. Pepper is getting warm, and I decide to put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.

As I head toward the kitchen with the Dr. Pepper, a vase of flowers on the counter catches my eye--they need water.

I put the Dr. Pepper on the counter 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 water the flowers.

I set the glasses back down on the counter, fill a container with water and suddenly spot the TV remote.

Someone left it on the kitchen table.

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 kitchen table, so I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers.

I pour some water in the flowers, but quite a bit of it spills on the floor.

So, I set the remote back on the table, 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 bills aren't paid;

there is a warm can of Dr. Pepper sitting on the counter;

the flowers don't have enough water;

there is still only one check in my check book;

I can't find the remote;
I can't find my glasses;
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.

I realize this is a serious problem, and I'll try to get some help for it, but first I'll check my blog.

Do me a favor.

Forward this message to everyone you know, because I don't remember who I've sent it to.
Don't laugh -- if this isn't you yet, your day is coming!!

Enjoy your weekend sister Kat. Love and prayers to you.

Ha... hmmmm.... I laughed but it isn't because it isn't me - it's because it hits too close to home.

Thanks for sharing! : )

I am a newcomer to your blog and wanted to introduce myself.

As I read through this post I realized it felt like I was reliving my yesterdays LOL! I chuckling all the way through this because I've so been there so many times.

I'll be back again to visit you.

I was going to say something smart like, "So THIS is what's wrong with my wife!"

But then I realized that you had just described my day today.

That was so funny!

Soooo funny and sooo true. Found your page on MBC in the CA moms group. Hope you will stop by and check out my blogs.

This sounds a lot like "If you give a mouse a cookie, then he'll...". I'm a preschool teacher and am all too familiar with that book series.

I always have to go back to the room I started out in to remember what I was searching for or was going to do in the first place!
