Cards and Adult ADD





I've decided today that I have Adult ADD. Both the daughter and I have off today and tomorrow. I went to bed thinking that I would get up. Have coffee. Go straight to the scrap table and make some long over due cards! I even planned on using some of my rubber stamps. You know, the stamps that I buy all the time and never use.

Well things didn't exactly go as planned. After a half a pot of coffee I decide we better make a trip to AC Moore and Michael's. I had a 50% off coupon and gee...if I'm going to make cards. I should really buy some card making supplies. Kelsey is now smitten with scrap shopping as well. She con's me into $10.00, a coupon for both Michael's and AC Moore and a promise to go the $$$ store. Two and a half hours later and a trip to Starbucks and we arrive home.

I decide first I should clean the kitchen a little bit. I have guilt issues when it comes to scrapping. Oh I should do this or this before I scrap. Well by the time I finish that, it's time for lunch. I re-heat Pizza Hut. Yes we ate total crap today!It gets better though, there is no gourment dinner coming up! Now we break for Hello Kitty shrinky dinks. We had to use the Hello Kitty shrinky dink oven and not the regular oven. Do you have any idea how long it takes to make a dozen shrinky dinks. One at a time!

By now it's almost 3 and I'm thinking damn, I just want to make some thank you cards. I finally stroll down to the basement into my "sanctuary" and I find a big fat mess. Not sure why I'm shocked since I was the last person scrapping but puts me into a fit and I clean off the scrap table totally forgetting about the dinner table.

When hubby comes home, you know after leaving at 3:30 a.m. and getting home at 6:00 p.m. He finds a bag of Wendy's on the table, a messy kitchen full of Hello Kitty shrinky dinks, empty shopping bags and me sitting on my ass playing with paper. Does it get any better that. After all that. My card is not that great and I've now missed the first half hour of The Biggest Loser. ho hum. I'll try again tomorrow.
