Motherhood ADD- it's real people! And there should be a public service announcement about it. I waste tens of dollars a year because of it- possibly hundreds, but let's not get hysterical! Today was a typical example. I told my husband I needed to bake cookies and clean today. I decided to make two types of cookies. Why? I have no idea- blame it on the A..D..D. So I start making one and then right in the middle start cleaning my kitchen. Well it needed to be cleaned, but while making cookies is probably not the
Whoops, sorry, I just remembered that the boys were invited to a party and had to call and see what time. Now what was I saying...
best time. After cleaning up the kitchen a little, I finished making the cookies to the point of chilling and then went to start on the next set, except I got distracted by what I was thinking and had to go look up whatever it was on the computer, except when I got to the computer I decided I wanted to turn some music on. That whole sentence shows I can concentrate even when it comes to English and sentence structure. After I turned the music on, I had no earthly idea what I was there for, so I just surfed the internet for a little while and it never came back to me, so I went back to cooking. Again with the run on sentences! That happened to me two more times during the course of making cookies- not run on sentences. Computer-interruptess, brain-farc. I also decided to have lunch somewhere in there. That batch did not turn out well at all! So I threw them all in a box for the kids to eat, because no one else is going to and started on the other set. As I started those one cooking, I remembered that I was supposed to be cleaning. Clean, look up something on the computer, oh no, cookies, computer, clean, oh no cookies! Luckily that batch did turn out. But here's the problem-
Whoops, cookie alarm...
the first batch was the Reese cookies- 24 beautiful reese cut up and baked into cookies are now thrown in a box for children consumption only. That's expensive kid fodder! And now I only have snicker doodles to bribe Football coaches with. Do Football coaches appreciate snicker doodles? As much as Reese cookies? Or do I need to go buy new Reese and start again? My kids' football coach needs some serious bribing and I want to make sure I do it right!
Oh, I could go on and on about the football coach, but that would just make the ADD worse.
I'm telling you, I don't think I am the only one out there. We need a serious Public Service Announcement! Avoid Distracted Cooking! Save your money! Avoid Distracted Cooking!

After a little more summer ...
It was time to go back to school *sigh.*
The oldest and best bakery, according to the tour guide. We had to take her word for it, because they weren't open on Sunday's. They moved all the dead who were in the market place under the bakery's water wheel, but apparently they still make great rolls. Eww!
