ADHD Goes On Vacation ~ Part II

The view from my laptop ... Morning coffee before work

Didn't I say I was going on vacation? Then why am I still working? That's right, I'm still working, and trying to do everything else I'd normally do.

Last week, a comment was posted by a reader asking for a few book titles on ADHD. I want to thank USC Trojan for this post idea. I'm not lacking in inspiration, but I am working inside a box, not my natural environment.
