From an ADD brain just wishing to have an outlet for sharing non-sequiter thoughts

A story you might only hear in TX
So, I was at work the other day in my office with a bunch of sick kids (I am a school nurse for those of you who don't know) and we had become overrun. I had three deep on one bench all waiting for parents to pick them up because they were headed home. I like to ask the kids what their parents do so I know which parent to try first or who might be easiest to reach. Two of the kids were talking about how their dads were cowboys - like real cowboys, no kidding around here. I mean they work on the ranch and do cowboy things. As they were discussing the authenticity of their cowboy dads the third child chimes in and says, "My dad wears a cowboy hat all the time, but he's not a cowboy he just sells insurance." Oh Lord, I couldn't even stiffle my laugh. Sometimes kids are so funny.
I am a person with as many interests as I have thoughts at any given moment. I currently make my living as a School Nurse but have worn many hats including ER charge nurse, sales, ministry, education, massage therapy, and even bird feeding (only hitting the highlights). I have hobbies that other people call obsessions. I love the Lord, children, sewing, photography, and reading.
I am a wife and a mother of three plus (we foster). Yellow lab fur is stuck to my pant legs most days. My husband is my perfect match. My children are brilliant and beautiful - but more important, they are nice.
I wasn't born in Texas but I got here as fast as I could.
As anyone with ADD will admit, I have a serious lack of focus in general and super human focus when I am interested. I just wanted a blog to show the lighter side of me with ADD. It can be a curse or a gift - it's up to the possessor to decide.
