Where My Day Goes!!

I have finally found something that explains why I am tired at the end of the day and yet it seems nothing gets down!!!!!!!!

I have recently been diagnosed with AAADD - Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder
This is how it goes . . .

I decide to clean off the front patio. I start to the patio and notice mail on the desk that needs to be taken down to the Post Office. OK, I'm going to the Post Office . . .

BUT FIRST I'm going to go through the mail that was delivered. I lay the car keys down on desk. After discarding the junk mail, I notice the trash can is full. OK, I'll just put the bills on my desk . . .

BUT FIRST I'll take the trash out. But since I'm going to be near the mailbox, I'll address a few bills . . Yes, Now where is the checkbook? Oops.. there's only one check left. Where did I put the extra checks? Oh, there is my empty coffee cup from last night on my desk. I'm going to look for those checks . . .

BUT FIRST I need to put the cup back in the kitchen. I start to head for the kitchen and look out at my balcony, notice the flowers need a drink of water because of the extreme heat. I put the cup on the counter and there's my extra pair of glasses on the kitchen counter. What are they doing here? I'll just put them away . . .

BUT FIRST need to water those plants. I head for the door and . . . Aaaagh! Someone left the TV remote on the wrong spot. Okay, I'll put the remote away and water the plants on my balcony . . .

BUT FIRST I need to find those checks.

END OF DAY: The patio has not been cleaned, bills still unpaid, cup still on the counter, checkbook still has only one check left, lost my car keys . . .

And, when I try to figure out how come nothing got done today, I'm baffled because . . .

I realize this condition is serious . . .
I'd get help . . .

BUT FIRST . . . I think I'll check my e-mail.

Well, now that we know what it is, what do we do about it?
Maybe additional doses of sherry would help?
Seems to me that someone has been watching me, It really does sound like home,,,,,,,,,
CU later I gotta go take the a,,,,,,,,,,,
Oh never mind!!

Dennis you will both feel much younger this winter when you have those new winter pigs lounging around in your guest room. Be sure to get the cable in there so they can watch TV.
