Are you all in?

This is a question I have been pondering lately.  I am interested in numerous topics, hobbies, and life changing do-it-yourself classes.  The realization of my problem led me to write this post.   I wonder how many readers can identify with my conundrum?  I’ve known for some time now that I have A.D.D., not to be confused with A.D.H.D.  There is nothing hyper about my physical body.  I can sit for hours in one place while my brain runs 50 mph through my skull exchanging interests.  I am an unwilling participant in this frenzied activity and routinely have to come up for air.  I have six open books in my kindle and have been known to toggle between them in the same session, remembering where I left off on each one.  I can’t remember where I put my car keys though.  Nor can I remember to pick up my cell phone on the way out the door.

So, am I all in? Definitely not.  I wish I were.  I would love to focus on one task at a time.  Maybe I could read up on it but likely I would not get to the advice part before I moved on to something else.  Even my blog is not solely devoted to a single topic.  Tiny living, searching for debt freedom, and minimalism are all wrapped up in one neat package.  Throw a bow on it and call it a day, that’s my philosophy.  I don’t plan ahead or remember lessons from the past.  I bought a beautiful expanded organizer/datebook but I neglect to write in it.  When I clean my RV, I move from one end to the other and clean the middle last.  If I receive a phone call while I’m in the midst of anything, I forget what was happening before hand and start a brand new task.

How about you?  Do you share in my pain?  Or are you super-organized?  I would love to hear from you either way.  Any tips would be greatly appreciated.  I will make an effort not to plan my next vacation in the middle of your thoughts 🙂

Take Care,

My husband and I are working toward a life of simplicity. We have six children and twelve grand-kids. This August we will be expecting our first Great-grandchild. My husband works full time and as of now, I am a stay at home wife. Our big house is up for sale. We currently live in a travel trailer near my husband's work. We recently purchased land and are anxiously looking forward to moving, but there are a few hangups.
