Have you ever had one of those times in your day... week... year.. life, when you've had big plans & were all gung-ho and then when it came right down to it, you lacked motivation? *Ahem* Yeah, well that's me right now. There are all these things that I've wanted to accomplish this summer & I haven't had the motivation to do them.
I'm beginning to think that something is wrong with me. I could blame it on the heat, which has been horrid. I could blame it on being too busy, which I am, sort of. I could say 'I'm lazy', but I know I'm not. I could say I've had tons of appointments, I have, but not that many. I could blame it on a myriad of other things too. Blaming isn't getting anything done.
I just read a book called "10 Simple Solutions To Adult ADD". I was thinking it'd give me some great pointers for dealing with King T and the Lego King. Guess what? I think I have ADD/ADHD!! No, really! I was reading through that book & I'm thinking 'wow, I do that and that and that AND THAT!!' There are so many things that were in that book that just explained me! It gave a bunch of tips to help people deal with stuff. Things that I do already to remember things, get things ready for myself. It explained why I do some of the things I do, why I think the way I think. Very interesting. I told King Turd that we both have ADD at least and that I think he has ADHD. It was just strange to pick up that book & see so much of myself in it. Weird!
I was wondering if I should ask my doctor for some ADD/ADHD meds. Maybe that would help keep me focused. Then again, is focus the problem or lack of motivation? Is there a difference? Guess I'll have to Google it. So, anyhoot. Tomorrow starts a brand new day, a new week - a cooler week says the weatherman. Maybe I can get some things accomplished.
Other reasoning as to why I haven't accomplished anything is that King T will be having his gastric bypass surgery on August 1st. Maybe I'm waiting to get things done while he's here at home. I'm afraid if I'm not keeping myself busy, he'll be driving me nuts at the end of 4 weeks & I will be begging to go back to school - even to Structured Studies!!
How motivated and focused have you been this summer?
Bye! Love you! Have a good day, Dear!
PS. Please continue to pray for Adam & his family. They haven't found him yet, nor has anyone heard from him at all. The longer the time, the colder the trail. Someone knows something.
