Sub-Title: Do You Think I'm ADHD ?
It all started when I stumped my toe heading to the bathroom to brush my teeth yesterday morning.
That's when I spent several minutes looking for the clippers to fix the divet in my toe nail that was broken into the "quick" and bleeding when the phone rang and I couldn't see the caller ID because I didn't have on my glasses and I answered it and it was a telemarketer so I hung up on him.
That's when I looked for my glasses so I would have them the next time the phone rang, but in the meantime the dogs were barking at me because they were hungry so I fed them before they chewed my legs off.
That's when I realized that the twingle in my head was due to my need for caffeine, so I turned on the Keurig and while it heated up I went to the computer to check my e-mails when I looked out the window and saw that the hummingbird feeders were in need of fresh nectar so I went to the pantry to get the sugar but there was no sugar, so I wrote "sugar" on my grocery-list-combination-list of things to do.
That's when I saw the note to myself that said 'call Melanie about Spanish lessons" so I did but she didn't answer the phone so I left her a message to call me back.
That's when I saw the red light blinking on my antique answering machine that my daughters give me grief about because I don't have an answering service like everyone else does but I refuse to give up my answering machine that I've had for over ten years so I listened to the messages one of which was from Chase Credit Card Fraud Detector concerning my VISA card that the waitress lost in the Denver airport the other day so I had to shut down my current card which means that about ten places had to be notified because automatic payment was set up with the number that was on the card that the waitress said she gave me but she didn't. After I shut down the card, the manager called me once I arrived in Okrahoma to tell me they found my credit card in the silverware drawer and what did he want me to do with it...I thought to myself, "Kathy be nice and don't tell him where to put it."
That's when thinking about silverware reminded me that the dishes in the dishwasher needed to be put away and when I saw the coffee cups remembered that I needed caffeine so I put a pod in the Keuring and pushed the blinking blue light.
That's when I realized I had not put the coffee cup that was in the dishwasher under the spout of the Keuring. Do you realize how much of a mess one cup of coffee can make when it spills out onto the kitchen counter and drips off the edge onto the floor ?
That's when I picked up a kitchen towel to mop up the mess and then took it to the laundry to throw it in the laundry basket and saw several loads of laundry so I started a load but first had to take the clothes out of the dryer so I could put the clothes that were in the warshing washing machine into the dryer so that I could start a new load of warsh wash.
That's when I started folding the clothes that were in the dryer and realized that several items should have been taken out before they completely dried and needed to be ironed so I turned on the iron but at the same time I heard my dogs making a raucous downstairs so I went downstairs to see what all the barking was about and saw that the neighbors two Boxers had escaped and were in my house.
That's when I realized that B.J. had already marked the leg of a chair so I shooed out all five dogs and grabbed the Odo-Ban and paper towels to clean up his mess. And then took the paper towels out to the garage.
That's when I realized that I hadn't brought the trash cans up from the day before so I went to the street and dragged them back up the driveway.
That's when I noticed that my morning glories looked thirsty so I grabbed the garden hose to give them a drink and remembered that the hot tub probably needed water, too. So after I watered the morning glories I lifted the lid to the hot tub to add water and saw that it needed bromine so I found the bromine container that was empty so I went to the garage to get a new bottle of bromine.
That's when I saw that the FIVE dogs had broken into one of the dog food containers and had scattered it from hither to yon so I got a broom and shooed them out of the garage and started to sweep up the mess they had made when the phone rang again. I ran into the house and grabbed the glasses off the top of my head because that's where I keep them most of the time and looked at the caller ID and saw that it was Melanie so we visited about my scheduling my Spanish lessons.
That's when I realized I had left the iron on upstairs, so I went upstairs to turn it off and about that time the dryer buzzer buzzed so I took out the clothes that were in the dryer and put them on the bed and took the clothes out of the warsher and put them in the dryer and commenced to fold the warm clothes before they ended up looking like the first wrinkled load.
That's when I remembered I had left the water hose running in the hot tub so I went back outside to find it overflowing and the FIVE dogs were wading and wallowing in all of the mud because of all of the water from the hot tub. I tried to run faster than they could back to the house so they didn't track in with twenty muddy feet through my house, but they got through the door before I did.
That's when I got the mop and started mopping the footprints that went from the back door, through the house, out the front door when I remembered HansMan had asked me to scan a bunch of documents and e-mail them to someone because the deadline for getting them to this someone was today. The only problem was, he didn't give me an e-mail address and he's in Alaska, and doesn't have cell service.
That's when I start scrambling to try to find out who it was he wanted this information sent to and spent the next couple of hours working on that project and in the meantime realize that I'm hungry and have a headache.
That's when I go to the refrigerator and pull out what's left of a pizza, put in on a paper plate to zap it in the microwave when the doorbell rings. It's the neighbor coming to fetch his dogs, so we visit for a few minutes.
That's when I go back into the kitchen to heat up my pizza only to find an empty plate and an empty pizza box on the floor with my three dogs looking at each other like, "I didn't do it...she did."
That's when I noticed that there was a beautiful sunset and wondered how could it be this late. So, I sat down enjoyed the colors in the sky and...
That's when I looked at my bloody toenail that was broken into the quick and thought to myself, "Now I wonder how that happened ?"
