Scattered

Well I'm getting nowhere fast today. I start to do one thing and remember something else needs doing and go do that instead or get sidetracked two or three more times before I finally settle in and do anything.

I sat down to write my first post today and remembered I had some bills that needed to be paid. Got the bills paid and did several more things before I came back here.

A few minutes ago I sat down to bead and realized I'd left my glasses somewhere. Got up to go looking for them but as I walked through the kitchen I realized I didn't have any bread and didn't want to get out to go to the store, so I whipped up some bread dough.

Then I sat down to bead again without my glasses. Got up to look for them again and found them next to the computer, and here I sit chatting instead of finishing that bead project. LOL It's a good thing I don't have anyone but myself to look after these days.

ADHD fleabrain, that's called, in my world. Welcome. It's good to have a companion here emoticon :winking:

I can relate. I keep trying to start my taxes and find myself miraculously waylaid. Wonder why!

Glad to know I am not the only one to do that.

Oh, when it's something I dread doing at least I know why I get sidetracked.

I think it's worse than walking into a room and forgetting why you're there.

you sound like you are ABSENT minded for today, maybe need more rest and stay focus.

I have that same moment from time to time. I cannot finish a task and it left me frustrated most of the time.

Thanks peachpurple . I think I have cabin fever and just need to get outside inspite of the cold, snow and fog. My brain is about as foggy as the weather.

I've had these moments as long as I can remember, but they seem to be getting more frequent lately.

Hahahaha, well you are getting some things done, right? Just not what you had planned.

BeadDoodler wrote on March 3, 2015, 10:06 PM

That's true Carmelanirel . When I looked back over what I'd done during the day I did get quite a bit accomplished. LOL

LOL! I am quite like that more often . I also like multitasking. I am trying to get organized these days.

BeadDoodler wrote on March 4, 2015, 7:27 AM

Oh, I gave up multitasking a long time ago. LOL

That's like today. I had planned on going out to eat for breakfast, drop off some items at my daughter's shop (because she said she didn't need me) only to find that she had scheduled more dogs and I had only returned home about an hour ago. We got a lo0t done, but I didn't get done what I wanted to get done here at home.
