Once Upon A Time.....

One More Post before Drawing....


Once upon a time there was a woman named MyADHDMe. She was trying to write a post for her blog but couldn't come up with an idea. She had so much to say but at the moment her mind was a blank. She thought about calling her sister, Chatty Kelly, for an idea because her sister knew how to Create:Making Something of Today, but it was late and her sister usually went to bed at a descent hour.(and tends to be very grumpy if she doesn't get enough sleep). She had already called her sister once that evening to chat but it was later than she had realized. Even though she didn't call that late On Purpose, she felt bad that she may have woken up Kelly's children. Plus, MyADHDMe was completely capable of coming up with her own ideas. Her blogs weren't exactly Rich Gifts but they were written from her own whirling Dervish thoughts.

Had she married into royalty, she could have just told someone else to write it for her, because she would have been His Princess. But that wouldn't have been a good idea because the blog was her own, not someone else's thought.

She definitely wasn't royalty, she was actually just happy to be Surviving Motherhood. So, she sat and thought. When she got tired she had a diet coke and then she had another. She wasn't a coffee drinker but if she had been, it would have been her Second Cup Of Coffee.

Maybe singing a song would help. Skip, Skip, Skip to my Lou...makes me think of beverlydru.

Well, that didn't help. Maybe if she went to Rebecca's Place she would come up with an idea. But she just didn't feel like going anywhere.

What a Quandary!

She could post anonymously, but everyone knows that anonymous is ET, her sister. (tried to link, couldn't)



Actually, she should have been in bed anyway. It was getting late and she had to babysit in the morning for a Bible Study group. There would be numerous children for her to watch, Including some who had brothers and sisters. She was pretty sure, though, that the entire Patterson 5 wouldn't all be there.

Even though it was late at her house, she was quite sure that due to time differences, that somewhere in Spain a Notorious Missionary might be still up, perhaps even fixing dinner. MyADHDMe was glad she wasn't there because she really really doesn't like to cook.

It was dark outside, she looked out the window at the creek behind her neighbors house but because of the rain and the tiny moon that night, she couldn't quite make out the Streams of
Living Water.

Then her mind started to wander....so unusual for her. She was thinking about what she was going to wear the next day. Almost all of her clothes are black, brown or army green but she had Chuck Taylor high top sneakers in many colors. maybe tomorrow she would wear her pink ones and then she would be a Pink Shoe Lady.

Then she had a wonderful idea. She would write a post, plugging all her blogging friends......she better hurry up and get started...............

I am not grumpy if I don't get enough sleep! Well, okay, maybe a little. That's why I went to bed at 9:30 last night.

Very creative. And you will never, ever, forget how to link.

I didn't check all the links...wouldn't it be funny if you linked everyone to different blogs? You know, losing focus...

Jeff and Valerie Carr said...

You know you've made it when you are linked!!!!

And I probably was up...

Edie said...

LOL. You are so creative! Now that you have linking down to a science, I think we need to teach you another skill to compliment this one. hmmmmm :D

I hope you're feeling better. You can borrow my Lysol if you want.

Beverlydru said...

I'm impressed! Well done! And how could I have forgotten that wonderful little song... Lou Lou skip to my Lou? I love it.

I know Edie gave me the certificate for outstanding linkages in a single blog, but I think I need to pass the certificate along to you, my friend.

And we're all living happily ever after (or, at least more happily than before we came to your blog!)

Aren't you just the most creative little thing?! I'm so proud of you for learning how to do links and practicing so diligently. I'm honored to be in your post. And you know, I bet it took lots of time focusing to write such a lengthy detailed post so we know you can do it now! Hooray!
