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

I love this boy. He is my funny kid. As a second grader he is full of jokes, riddles, and a mouth of unruly teeth. First of all, he is all boy, but he surprises us every other minute. The other day he and his best friend "Jake" (yes, Jacob and Jake are best friends) were watching an Olympic medal ceremony. Jacob exclaims that it is "so romantic!" Brian, wondering what he is talking about, questions Jacob. It was the women's skiing medal ceremony and Jacob pointed out that they were given flowers and the men kissed the women's hands. Oh, how romantic... Where did he even get that word?
Fast forward to last night. We were watching the Olympics - again, and Jacob is getting impatient waiting for his favorite event. We happened to be watching my favorite event, Giant Slalum (um, hello, Aksel) and Jacob was antsy to get to ICE DANCING! What the heck? He loves those skaters.
The funniest moment yet came when Bob Costas appeared on the screen for the umpteenth time and Jacob says, "I'm getting sick of this guy. Who is he anyway? He speaks like every 10 minutes." Uh, yep. About every 10 minutes up pops Bob Costas. Brian agreed. It was way better when Katie Couric reported on the Olympics. Oh, boy.
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.
