Why I Didn’t Win The Election

For goodness sake!

We just had an election in Canada. It is so fresh you can still feel the heat coming off the oven it was baked in. You can smell it in the air as you walk in the front door of our country.

And the results were very favorable as far as I'm concerned.

I, was not elected.

Oh believe me, I did my share of kissing babies and shaking hands. And...


If I Could Save Time

Too soon gone

Many of you, if you're more mature, might recognize that line from Jim Croce's hit, "Time In A Bottle."

"If I could save time in a bottle, the first thing that I'd like to do ..."

I've always loved this song, because I've always felt the meaning of it deeply.

This isn't one of those blogs where I point at famous people who have passed away and tell...


5 Awesome ADHD Cake Baking ADHD Tips

mmmmm, cake

Okay, I admit it. I stole that title from a blog about how to write blogs and titles.

And I stole it for two reasons. One, I really like cake. And two, it distracted me and I read an entire blog post on blogging, just because I really like cake.

So I figured that if it distracted me, and I have ADHD, it would distract you and you'd read my ADHD blog and...


Not On My Watch

I've got all the time in the world

I like puns.

I have a hard time keeping them out of the titles of my blog posts, and I often don't succeed.

Today is no different.

That title refers to my new smart watch, not a period of time when I stand guard over my tribe.
But wait ...
That's kind of what I'm doing, I'm writing about my life so that those of you with ADHD can...


The Tortoise And The Hare

Hare on the go

I'm not a tortoise. I do not move slowly.

Well, okay, I move a lot more slowly than I used to move now that I'm in my sixties. But I still move faster than lots of 40 somethings move, and faster than quite a few 30 somethings as well.

I have ADHD. And I have the combined type of ADHD which means I am both hyper active and inattentive.

And yes,...


Of All The Jobs I’ve Ever Had

What's on the agenda today, eh?

I've done a lot of things in my life. And we all know why that is.

I have ADHD. The things I do need to be exciting or interesting to hold my attention.

I've been so many different things in my life that I often forget some of them.

Did I ever mention I worked on farms as a youngster? Yeah, that was the life. Things constantly changing,...

Adult ADHD

The things I have to do

The things you want to do

You know I'm never going to get everything done.

And I know you're never going to get everything done either.

I think ADHD is the disorder of having too much to do. Except of course that we do that to ourselves. There are so many things we want to do on top of what we need to do.

And after a while we get to the point where we...


Time For Me

Time is rarely on my side

I love being busy, love having lots to do.

But I hate when I need things to be done in less time than I have to do them in.

I hate letting people down.

Even when they aren't paying attention.
Not paying attention?
That's probably the wrong way to say that. More like when I'm trying to do things in a more scheduled way than I'm required to do.

Like this blog, where...


In My Mind

My own personal internal elevator music

"I got my hush puppies on, I guess I never was one for ????????? rock and roll."

Yesterday, this line was stuck in my head. It's an older song, Jimmy Buffet wrote and recorded it. I don't really remember it being played, he wrote it in 1973, apparently and it was released in 74, so I was around 13 or 14 years old and just starting my...


Context Is Everything

Not a picture of trees turning color

I was on my way to work today, driving on the two lane black top we call a highway where I live. Hey, it has passing lanes ... every five or ten miles.

And as I was driving along I noticed the trees turning color.

Now it's a rainy day here today and the trees I'd noticed were off in the distance, a stand of...
