I was rushed on Friday getting ready for a meeting. Among other things, I was supposed to bring some pictures for someone to make Christmas ornaments. I procrastinated until the last minute, and hadn’t picked out the pictures yet.
I searched through 3 boxes to find the envelope of pictures I wanted, then picked out the pictures. I set them aside to take with me, and finished getting ready. I promptly forgot about the pictures (after all, I had done my work, right? I picked them out.) and finished getting ready.
Got to the meeting and, lo and behold, the pictures weren’t there. I had forgotten to put them in my purse! Sure enough, when I got home, they were sitting on the counter (along with a pile of other papers that haven’t been put away …)
Yup, that’s ADHD for ya.
