Okay first I have been tagged by Gina at Cat Nap Inn. So I have to name 6 things that you don;t already know about me...so here goes:
1.I have ADD (attention deficit disorder).
I did not figure it out until I was an adult but I know I have always had it. I was taking child development classes and working as a Parent Educator with the Parents as Teachers program.......I was sitting in my office reading one day and I said this is me! Metal Health was in the same complex as my office so I went right over. I saw the Doctor and answered a lot of questions and he agreed. Today I take Strattera and it works wonderful for me.....without it I would go in circles all day chasing my tail! The meds are great but learning the keys to your ADD is even more important. I learned alot while taking an intense class on working with Autistic children. You have to learn what your brain needs to work it's best. For example....I stay more organized when I can see things..like I took the doors off my upper cabinets, I like my pots and pans hanging from a pot rack. I recently moved my sewing machine and all my craft items over to another barn we have...I needed the space in my store and I wanted to get everything organized.
Here are a couple things that keep me on track
I hang my stencils up on pants racks, large patten sheets from magazines I had laminated and also hang up.
Ziplock bags are my friends... here I use them for patterns and floss.
( I am addicted to epatterns, I love them....if I feel bad I buy a Epattern...I love Them!!! watching it print out and then reading the directions...I just get happy!
Hey, It could be worse!)
It is a learning process and it takes self discipline. Remember there is no one size fits all when it comes to treatment...everyone is not the same.
Did you know that most ADD people are very creative and Smart! LOL
2. I love my PJ's.....I can do my best housecleaning or crafting in them and if you are my neighbors, you know I am not afraid to go outside in them!
3.I like to burn my pop tart just a little burnt on top with a glass of milk.
4. I love forensic shows! (Tru TV, Discovery ID)
5. Oh yea....I am right/Left dyslexic....That means I know the difference.....but I have to think for a split second or look at my hands.
6. I watched all the debates, conventions and I watch the news show every night.( I have not been watching much forensics lately).
The choice for President and Vice President is very clear to me. This is the most important election of my life....I am going to know all about it. I can respect other peoples choices if they are based on issues and facts but if you want to get me fired up tell me your voting a certain way just because everyone in you family does, or you heard something or got an email, or you never watch the news or read a newspaper, or your choice is base on plain and simple ignorance! My husband tells me not to mix my politics and my business because I am so passionate about it!
I know that was more than you wanted to know right!
