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

My baby is 6! We told her she was not allowed to turn 6. We even tried to cancel her birthday - but February 13th came around anyway. So, we did what any good parents would do, we threw her a Fairy Birthday Party.
All the girls were to come in their Fairy Best - minus the accessories because we would provide those. We spent the afternoon crafting wings and wands. The wings are two pieces of 12x18 stiff felt cut into wing shape, sewn together, with elastic also sewn in for arms. They were decorated with foam stickers, pom poms, glitter fabric spray, tool, ribbons, and the occasional sharpie (all with the help of a few moms and hot glue guns). The wands are wooden dowels with foam stars on the top. One little girl had only done the basic foam star and wooden dowel wand. She handed it to her mother and asked "for an upgrade" meaning she wanted ribbons on that too. The finishing touch was "Fairy Dust" that we sprinkled on everyone. All I can say is, the Head Fairy is tired.
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.
